There are limited sites here, so reservations are crucial, especially in peak times of the year. All spots are within walking distance of the beach, but the beach area itself also has a parking lot. Water & 30/50-amp electricity is available. Like most state parks, there are no sewer hook-ups at individual sites, but there is a two-direction sewer dump at the entrance to the park. The park headquarters features a parking lot that's big enough to turn around in. The park has a junior ranger program available for the kids, in which they loan out a backpack full of gear. We camped at Mustang Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.
If you're headed to the beach from the RV sites, take a left at the stop sign and follow the road around. It opens up to a beach where vehicles are allowed. Follow the beach north for a quarter mile or so and park. There are two big granite jetties sticking out into the water. The sand between them affords you more privacy than just going to the regular beach area.

We arrived as it was getting dark. Practically scared out of my mind by the big loud dog in the office. After we got set up, my wife noticed a distinct marijuana smell in the air. This and the overall run-down feel of the entire park made us feel a little unsafe. Since we had already paid and it was too late at night to just go somewhere else, I just made sure we were completely locked up and had the gun nearby. When we woke up and got ready to go, we noticed a big pile of dog poop right outside our front door and some trash on the picnic table. The place has potential. If they just cleaned the place up and got rid of the dingy permanent mobile homes, it could be a decent park. But it's clear the owner doesn't really care about the place. Not a park we'll come back to, as there are two others a few miles up the road. We camped at Deerwood Inn Madison Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Just a place to get some sleep on the way to somewhere else.

This was the first campground we stayed at on our big multi-state trip, and it spoiled us for several others we would later visit. The staff was friendly, the office/store was comfortable. The site they gave us was a great pull through with a modern water spigot and electricity pedestal, all in working order. The site was a level concrete pad. The pool, mini golf, and playground areas were clean and well maintained. We wish we could have stayed there longer than just the one night. We camped at Twin Fountains RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
