Fishing is Great

Went to the Jetties to fish. Had a great time, caught some fish and no rocks to get hung on. Sunset was awesome!

This is our first time staying here but we have family that have been coming to Isla Blanca for years. We are staying for two months and we feel like we own a little piece of the island. Prices are cheap in the off season for camping and local food. The beach is a short walk from our site and... More

Our timing was probably wrong when visiting here. There was a big queue to get in and we drove around and had trouble parking. There were a lot of people there fishing and it seemed very popular. There are some facilities there but i preferred driving further up the beach where it was quieter to enjoy our time on the... More

The rates in this park were very reasonable. Close easy walk to the beach. The sand was clean the beach was not very crowded. Twice the park water was turned off for repairs, so we didn't have water for the trailer. They didn't tell you they were shutting off the water. This place is close to everything. Good spot if...

We are Winter Texans and love this campground! We have meet so many people and everyone is so friendly. We can walk to beach. If you want you can get on shuttle at entrance of park. Would be nice if they had cement pads at all campsites but there are some.

Breathtaking park when you aren't in the middle of people on the beach. Take time to go and see the statue of Jesus facing the water and relax. Beautiful place to see people fishing as well.

Very clean, the water was also very clean, it was very clear, enough for my sister to be able to see little fish swimming around through the waves.

I scratched my head when they asked for 10.00 to enter, then I saw why. Beautiful beach, facilities, nice pavillion and snack bar. Cleanest restrooms of any beachfront park we been to.

We had a great time fishing at the jetties. I think the annual fee of $100 is too much and you have to use the same vehicle. If you want to use another vehicle it will be either $10 a day or $100 annual fee, no placards to use on a different vehicle. Another issue is that you can only... More
