The town is a super dive in terms of accommodations and attractions. They were marketing recently that everything is revamped, so I can't imagine what it looked like prior. The only thing I saw that seemed interesting is some decent houses with private piers that could be rented. I thought maybe one of those with some buddies might be fun... More

A few buddies and I drove down from San Antonio for a night of fishing. It was a LONG 3 hour drive through too many FM's and not much else. Once we got to the marina around 930 on a Saturday night the parking lot was full. We purchased our $5 passes and went out the the patio/pier area. Although... More

Sleepy little fishing community with marina, RV and camping facilities. I plan to come back and bring the boat to do some fishing.

It's very historic but there isn't much here to attract anyone, save the prospect of fishing. The store and pier are adequate but there is N O T H I N G else, save a collection of private residences, which vary from fairly expensive construction to the older mobile home surrounded by a chain link fence. The town/area has been... More

We first walked in to the marina expecting, we'll, a marina. It was pleasant. The inside walls are adorned with photos and historical writings about Indianola and the outside is a fishing deck. The marina sells various items such as bait, fishing supplies, and snacks. Also a part of the marina, is a small restaurant. Their menu includes classics like... More

I live in Port Lavaca, si I frequently go to this place. Is a ghost town, more for people who likes to fish and has some quite time. It has a fishing pier and a little store. The burger n the bun are my favorite. Fishing is not my strong, so in my three times fishing there I didn't catch... More

In the summer and fall of 2012 I frequented this fishing spot 2-3 times per week. It has everything to offer the fisherwoman like a covered patio, chairs, picnic tables, restaurant with air-conditioning, bait and fishing supplies and lets not forget restrooms. The people are friendly and helpful when needed and the food was good. I have fished in other... More

I haven't been in a while but, it's basically a fishing pier with a store/bar. Of course it's a bit pricey. Nothing special here

Indainola has a rich history. The marina is nice. Fishing is good in this area. To bad so many hurricanes have whiped out the sites and they finally didn't rebuild. Must see the Ponce Deleon statue on the coast.
