“What a nice surprise”
Review of Isla Blanca Park

Isla Blanca Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2012

My beautiful wife and I spent a week at Isla Blanca Park. We found it by accident while looking at Google Earth. It has full hookups, nice water pressure, great access to the beach, gated entry by key card. We had made several reservations at the nearby KOA, but had the need to cancel each timefor various reasons. We found this park is much nicer for half the price. This park had nice spacing between the sites and everyone is friendly. The only down side, if there is one, is the grass burrs. They are everywhere. A thick mat from the RV to the table area does the trIck. This will be our park when we return to SPI. It's operated by the County Parks Dept, who also maintains the trash barrels etc. We are already looking forward to our next trip back to Isla Blanca Park.

Make sure to visit for the jetties alone. Nice facilities and good shelling. We didnt camp/RV but the areas looked nice and clean.

a bit crowded on the weekends in the summer. The official surfing beach of south padre island, esp for south swell. Bathrooms and summer concessions as well as ample parking and shaded picnic areas.

This is a county park and is a combination trailer park/parking lot located at the south end of South Padre Island. They do have restrooms and a large covered "picnic area" if your idea of picnic is being crammed on to a concrete slab with a teeming throng. The beach is well maintained, but very, very crowded most of the time. There are much better options to enjoy the beach. There is parking and public access all along the beach throughout the town - though it is a bit limited. I would not recommend this park unless your time is very limited, you cannot find anywhere else to park, or you enjoy being cheek to jowl with your neighbors...
