We enjoyed our stay at this KOA. Koa's are always nice and clean. I really wanted to face the gulf so that was a little of a downer. On the upside it was very close to Isla Blanca park and Pier 19 for great for and beach. The staff was awesome.

Staff were very accommodating and very pleasant. We arrived and booked a chalet unfortunately there was no a/c in one of the rooms so we asked at the office if we could move, they placed us in a condo above the office, which was clean and quiet. No major issues with property except it could do with a bit of... More

I typically hate campgrounds because the camping spaces are SO SMALL compared to State Parks. And this place is the same - VERY SMALL CAMP SITES - BUT the sites were so nice, clean, and well managed that I didn't hate it. They offered many different kinds of sites: pull through, handicapped, multiple use, etc.. it seemed like a very... More

We have stayed at the KOA South Padre Island several times. We use to have a travel trailer but now stay in their deluxe cabins. The cabins are located right on the bay with beautiful views. They are well equipped even including a very clean outdoor grill and table with chairs. The cabins are perfect for families looking for something... More

We used to love this place, but it is really going downhill. Do not come here on a summer weekend unless you thrive on chaos. Locals stop here prior to going home to use the restrooms and shower. Management does not seem to care. Every morning one or more of the commodes is backed up and overflowing. Waken in the... More

We were here for the week of Spring Break (March 2016). I was not impress with this place. The cabin was ocean view but it also stunk. I am not sure if it was we were so close to the restaurant or to the dumpster. the kitchen and living room area were not bad but the bedroom was extremely small... More

This was our second visit here. Staff is very friendly, helpful and they respond quickly to any concern. Pool is large and nice! It is easy to launch kayak from park. You can see both fireworks displays at the same time from the park. Pier 19 restaurant on site is good and also has a great bartender who makes excellent... More

This is a great place to take the RV. It has activities for the kids, a movie and night and a swimming pool. One of the highlights is its right across the street from Schlitterbahn. Plenty of things to do.

I was taking care of my grandmother for the majority of my stay here and let me tell you, this place is not handicap friendly. They do the absolute bare minimum. There is a ramp to the condo section and ONE handicap parking space. The cabins were accessible by stair only and just forget about going anywhere other than the... More

We have a 42 ft fifth wheel and it was a tight squeeze trying to park and settle in. You literally are almost on top of your neighbor at this place and for $60 a night it's costly to stay here. It's looked like a nightmare Monday morning with all rv's trying to exit with limited space.
