I normally don't write reviews, but in this case I have to. We wanted to meet some friends in South Padre and believe me there isn't too many campground here, only 2! The KOA which is ridiculously expensive and very small spaces and the Isla Blanca County Park. I called or reservations and the girl I spoke to was kind of rude, but I thought she was just having a bad day, so I didn't think too much of it. Well.....when we got there it didn't get much better, matter of fact it had to be the girl I spoke to on the phone. She wouldn't answer any questions, if you asked her something she would cut you off and I don't mean in a good tone! This happened 3 times, well the third time I asked her if she was comfortable in her job because of the way her customer service skills were, she must have been very confident that she would not lose her job, she just rolled her eyes at me and turned away, now in my younger days I probably would have gone over the counter and did something, but being the mature older gal that I am now, well you get my drift. Then there are the "regular" people in the campground, oh yeah! They seem to think they own it and they run it, the last time I checked it was run by the County, but someone along the way forgot to tell them. Just because you are 75 and plus doesn't give you the right to act like the world owes you everything, there is a little word they forgot over the years, its called RESPECT! Then the bathrooms, oh year, if you like to go to the bathroom where the toilet seats are made out of stainless steel and they smell and the floor and showers look like they haven't been cleaned in a few years, well then you'll fit right in. The park itself is NOT maintained very well at all, the only reason the "old" people go there to stay for a few months is because its cheaper than KOA (35.00 vs. 59.00). They don't come out of there RV's much anyway, only to spy on what's new coming in, then they turn their noses up and go back inside.
Like I said I normally don't right reviews, but I couldn't let this one go. My husband and I travel all winter and have never been treated so badly and most of all ever seen a campground as bad as this, I don't care if they charged only 5.00 a night, I WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN!!! STAY AWAY, BEWARD, or if you like this kind of place then go ahead!
