This is a good place for fishing... not much there to do. Its a nice drive. They do charge you $5.00 per car... not sure for what though as there are no establishments on this road.

This has some great shoreline fishing. There is a bait place right before you get on the dike so that makes in nice. It says you can't camp on the dike, but you can fish all night and day.

There are several boat ramp that you can use to launch your boat. The very last one at the end is convenient. 3 boat ramps. Great place to access the Texas Bay Area for fishing and cruising.

Great place to fish along waters edge. A very favorite spot for locals and those around Houston etc. Fun n just to ride around, enjoy nature and watch ocean going vessels come into Houston ship channel from the ocean.

I would imagine if they are street legal they are allowed on the public road that goes to the end of the dike but I am no expert on Texas road laws. As far as the beach areas on the north side, plenty of cars and 4 wheel... More

Yes, I have camped there a while back. On occasions there are folks that fish all night with generators. It’s best to ask the guys that work the gate entrance.
