If you've never beach camped before, you have to do it at least once. Great for the whole family.  First time beach campers will enjoy the experience and have an awesome time, but may choose to camp off-beach next time as one literally sleeps, eats, and drinks sand! Weather for late July, early August is great, "neighbors" are friendly, water temperature is perfect, and staff is very helpful in answering all "first-timer" questions and concerns. Secluded, yet close to town, motels, eateires, etc. Only 30-40 minutes away from the Texas State Aquarium and the USS Lexington.
