This is a difficult park to rate. We did not enjoy it, but it was, for the most part, neat, clean and had amenities that many will find attractive. We were excited when I stumbled across the website for Long Island. I wish I had read it more carefully. This is NOT an RV resort. It is a park model community. If an owner has an unimproved lot, it can be put in a rental pool for RVs. So, we were parked in along with the multitude of park model/permanent residents. Some sites are on a canal, but they are not available in the rental pool To us, part of the fun of RVing is visiting with other RVers, so this could not happen in this instance. Check in was slow, the young lady in the office could care less if we were there or not. I had to ask for a map of the area to be able to find our site. The site was large enough with fairly decent grass. Your unit must be self contained since there are not restroom facilities available. My husband walked across to the golf course and said it was in really bad shape, so we did not play. We saw lots of others playing while we were there. It would probably be a great place to live, but it is not what we look for in an RV resort. It is a very secure park with a guard at the gate at all times. We were told that Long Island was formerly affiliated with the Outdoor Resort Parks. It must have been decades ago because it is nothing like the OR Is that we are familiar with. It was a very disappointing and expensive week. Actually, we paid for a week and left after 5 days. We normally avoid the KOA parks, but there is one located across the causeway that would have been much better choice for us. We will not return. - TexasRee

This is a member-owned park where everyone owns their site. When the sites are not occupied the management rents the site out. Even during the peak of the snowbird season there were plenty of sites available and several for sale as well. This is a beautiful park with many amenities including an on-site restaurant. Very friendly staff, immaculately groomed landscaping and they have their own 18 hole golf course! - SL592

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting South Padre Island. Our spot backed up to a channel and was very enjoyable.
Things I liked:
Many long-termers here and everyone followed the rules of the park so it is peaceful. They have an off-leash dog park. There is a shower area. There are docks to fish from. The park is gated, and the pool looked very nice. (We didn't use it during our stay). The shower facilities were nice. There was loose hair around, but I have seen a lot worse.
Things I didn't like:
There was low water pressure during the day. The wifi was so slow that it wasn't useable, and there wasn't a picnic table or fire ring at the sites.
We would stay here again! - bleehow

It is $300+ a month and higher for premium An old place where too many campers are crammed in, an example of what some settle for as many return each year taking advantage of cheap prices. This was our first time here, it was the only place we could get for a month, and while all the staff are very cordial and do their best, the RVpark leaves much to be desired. Parking so close to the adjacent space on grass & dirt. no place to sit other than squeezed alongside your rig. Lots of permanents too . There are some premium newer sites across a channel, but those were booked and so we had to take what we could get to stay in the area. Terrible mud and grime gets on all connecting hoses from the rains. There are good things, most people are friendly, a pool and hot tub, water aerobic classes, which are crowded I heard there was yoga but never could figure out where it was held. There are activities from in the rec hall, but these are all bring your own plates, utensils, etc. We skipped that as always crowded too so missed out on the "fun" It is gated so that is some security and a deposit is collected for the remote to open one gate. One walking gate is kept open all day long.. Internal roads are very narrow and rough and when it rained our row was along a minor creek because the water did not drain. . Too many people there and walking becomes a chore dodging automobiles and golf carts. There is an extra charge for cable which does not work well so we canceled.Wifi is awful unless one goes to the rec hall. Electricity is extra and had we stayed the month would have been about$100. The laundromat is dumpy, rusted machines from salt air, inadequate for the population and several machines do not work but take money from unsuspecting. The park is not responsible for the refunds nor do they post out of order signs. Several of these longtimers park any which way and their vehicles in front of rigs make it difficult to navigate around them. - Pat and Jerry

A Winter Texan park. Close to everything around the South Padre Island/ Brownsville area. Large park with a very active social calendar, you won't be bored! All in all, a fun place to spend the Winter with a lot of nice people. - dewbon1

This has to be the best KOA we have ever stayed at. Although the weather wasn't great, we thoroughly enjoyed our 18 day stay. There is a workout room with equipment rivaling most membership gyms. Due to the bad weather, we used it a lot. They have many organized activities like water aerobics, potlucks, entertainment, and a super friendly staff. Also, a well stocked store with good quality T-shirts priced way below the local tourist traps. The only criticism we had was the noise of emptying the dumpsters at 6:30 in the morning. - Andy H

Spent a week in a pull through spot with patio - the way they are arranged make them feel spacious. Yes its expensive but it all about the location. Wifi worked at all times and was very fast - lots of TV channels - we will go back next year. - rr2254545

This is JUST AN OK KOA! First off all the sites are Gravel and very hard to walk on. Your Pets will hate this place. There is a Pet Park close to the beach with Grass, but it is a long walk over gravel to get there! We stayed there 2 times and there is so little to do in South Padre, we will probably not go back. And it is usually very WINDY! Just not one of the best KOA's in the system. - JTorsrud

Our stay for one month is $600. This RV Park is on the tip of the island, so you are close to the water everywhere. There is a lot of construction of new beach pavilions and it will be very nice. It’s a great place to bring the family. - Miss Yoriv

Came here for two weeks after we could not extend at a nearby park. This park is in pretty rough shape due to all the construction that is going on. Instead of working on one thing at time, they have everything (except the sites) torn up at one. The site plan on their website shows "future state" - not what it currently is. Multiple restrooms are closed, most parking at the beach is unavailable, there are no concession pavilions or boardwalk, and the amphitheater and multi purpose building is not available. Our site had cable, but it was pretty poor. A lot of the sites have been previously modified with no obvious control by the park. $29.99 for a week of unusable WiFi is a joke - don't even think about it. We had fire ants at our site, but good response to getting someone out to spray. Interior roads are paved, but rough. It's too bad this park hasn't been managed better - it has a great location. If we're ever here in the future, we would definitely pay a little more and stay at the other park. - Andy H

We have been looking for a nice location for December/January snowbirding and were hoping to find it here. Sorry--it's a no-go. Park is on the tip of South Padre Island, so you are steps away from a beautiful beach. On a nice day, there would be few places that would be nicer. Amazing sand castle creations await you. However, in December/January, the winds gust two days out of three, so hard that we pulled our slides in many days to save our slide toppers--even did this in the middle of the night because the noise was keeping us awake. We had fire ants upon check-in that maintenance addressed promptly. There are sand burrs everywhere, and they continuously track into your rig. The salty sea-spray will do a number on your rig, paint will feel grimy in no time. Our steps were corroded after 3 weeks and would not retract without repeated lubbing, exhaust pipe for AquaHot had rust in same time frame. Local RV Wash vans circle the park daily and are very economical--use them! The park is undergoing major reconstruction. All of the public facilities are being done first. Half of the campground bathrooms were closed, however little work was occurring. There are huge differences between campsite conditions, even those side-by-side. Some are paved and have patios, some are grass, some are broken concrete, some have windbreaks--all for the same price. Looks as if seasonals customize their sites. Some hookups are on wrong side or awkwardly placed. Many sites are at difficult angles to back into. They ask you to pick a site when reserving, but without park knowledge, it's just a guess. We could not reach hookups on our first site regardless if pulled in or backed in. The office staff is disorganized, always a line in the office. Poorly planned park--hopefully renovations will significantly improve conditions--if done consistently, comprehensively, and correctly. Did meet a lot of wonderfully fun fellow campers. If we return, we pay the big bucks and stay at the KOA. - RagTopDay

Access to the park was fair. It is a little tight. Signage was good. Perimeter roads are paved. This park is basically just a parking lot with services to the extreme rear. There is very little room between units. There are no trees, it is wide open. There is a boardwalk that takes you to the beach. We were really not very impressed with this park. There are two other options available. One being the "Dry" camping area at $20.00 night. It's a larger parking lot with no services but you can park where ever you want. You do get a little more space. The third option is the best IMO. You can purchase a thirty day pass for $25.00 that allows you to park right on the beach a few miles up the road at Edwin King Atwood park. You can only buy the pass at Andy Bowie though. We spent one night at Andy Bowie and then moved to the beach for just over two weeks. The $25.00 pass gives you access to the facilities at Andy Bowie as well as access to the facilities at Isla Blanca RV Park (also owned and operated by the county). You can fill fresh water and dump at no charge. For us, to have the space, freedom and to park right on the beach, was the best. The beach access road is had packed sand. Our friends had no problems getting their 40 footer parked on solid sand. See the pics added. The beach area is patrolled by security many times a day. Pet rules still apply although many day users let their dogs run free. We would definitely return to the Beach Section. We paid $25.00 to use the park for just over two weeks and feel we received a bargain. - Rollin Ollens

If you're looking for amenities like pools, playgrounds, potluck dinners and such this is NOT the place for you! We have been here since December 5th 2016 and we love it. Clean showers, a beautiful beach and the best staff in the world!! We will be back for sure. - Sandraj2016

I feel badly for the rater who scratched his fifth wheel. We have a 30 foot and were able to manuver the entrance with only a couple inches to spare. Once you are in the entrance, it is designed such that you are trapped and unable to back out. My idea of 9/11 type traffic control overkill.
The park is nothing at all special other that the fact you are less than 100 yards of the beach, and across the street from the birding center.. Large asphalt lot with spaces about 5 feet apart. Utility hookups are to the extreme rear. Bring extra hose just in case. Good water pressure. Guys in the office are nice, but aren't authorized to do much more than take your money and give you a receipt. Park is run by the county.
This is our 2d time at this park and will come again only for the convenient location. - Deck & Margot

We really tried to like this older park, however it could use some updating/better management. When we arrived we found the office was dark & locked, so we wandered around awhile, until we found someone (not the owner/manager) to assign us a space. We were placed in the gravel(?) area, across from the derelict stored units (some with flat tires). Some traffic noise from adjacent Hwy 100, nearby train whistles passing during the night and from the dumpster pickup at 6:00am. There is no fence, security or gate and all units are easily accessible from the road. A key is provided for the ladies restroom. Electric, water and sewer worked OK. The park's best feature is it's proximity to South Padre Island. - mountain_man

We were surprised with this little park on the way to South Padre Island. It is clean, friendly and affordable. There are several nearby restaurants. We will definitely stay here in the future, maybe for a month or two. - NachoDawg

This a small very friendly park under new ownership. A portion of the park has paved streets and a small part has gravel streets. It has easy access off of State Route 100. Close proximety to South Padre Island and Brownsville. - Vagabonds

Very bad Rv Park, changed owner, and they have no workers to fix things up, most sites don't work, they have very few 50 amps sites, only 4 or 5 pull-thru, lost of empty mobile home sites empty. We will never stay there again. Used to be a nice small friendly park. - paks
Jan 2012 - $36.00
Sites are interspersed with mobile homes that are year around. The area numbering the #100's for campers is right next to the road, and all of the road noise. The pool is not heated, and hot tub is not "hot". The park itself is okay, but doesn't have a "community" atmosphere. It is close to Brownsville, but you definitely need a car to get around. However it is clean and does feel much safer than other Brownsville RV parks. - Rusty Quilter

The roads and parking spots were in very poor condition. Attendant was very rude to my wife and OK to me. Pull through spot had my dingy in road and I was within 2 feet of a clubhouse roof. Really different from RPI catalog pictures and descriptions. We had paid for several days but left after only one night. In a questionable area of town. We will not stay there again. If we had read the reviews before, we would not have stayed there. The other reviews are right on. - km123

Staff was unfriendly, water pressure was very low, lots too close together, could hear neighbors tv and conversations. Two sets of rules, one for yearly tennants and one for winter texans. Animal feces all over. Highly recommend staying at a more friendly rv park so you can enjoy your vacation and have fun. Pine needles a real mess. - Peter Brehm

Our nightly rate is based on staying for one month. First off I want to say that management and the other park residents are extremely friendly and inviting. Most of the residents are snowbirds that return each year. Also one other good point is that the washers and dryers seem almost new and the laundry room was very clean. There is also a little lake on the campground which is nice to look at if you have a site nearby. However, those are the only redeeming features of this park. Sites are dirt and dead grass with lots of fire ants and sites are placed haphazardly around the park. The sites are extremely narrow and are very difficult to back in to because of the palm trees and the placement of the services. It took us half an hour to park our 40 foot fifth wheel. This is the most disorganized park we have ever stayed at. It is 70% park models about half of which are old and run down and placed at various different angles. The streets are winding and in bad need of repair. There are no curbs or gravel anywhere just lots of dirt and crunchy dried grass. The park is in a bad part of town (although most parts of Brownsville can be classified as bad) and we were constantly woken up by cars without mufflers speeding by on the street with stereos blaring full blast at all hours of the night and really loud parties from the neighbors across the street. If I could make one recommendation it would be to skip Brownsville altogether. It was an extremely depressing place to stay. The city is very poor. All of the buildings and the houses are rundown with absolutely no pride of ownership evident anywhere. Even the downtown core reminded me of downtown Mazatlan. We thought we could find a good Mexican restaurant because we were so close to the border but we were disappointed at every restaurant we tried. The best meal we had was at IHOP and even that wasn't very good. I wish someone had warned me about Brownsville before I made our reservations and paid $200. If we hadn't put the money down already we would have left the day after we arrived as one other couple at the park did. - KoiWarrior

Plan your trip here when it isn't raining since the campground is a quagmire when there is significant precipitation. Mud boots and 4WD were required when it was time to hook up and pull out. We stayed here before in 2005, but didn't have the mud problem. Some of the sites are not level, but are decently spaced. The utilities were at the rear of the back-ins, so make sure you have plenty of length on your water hose. Our trailer electric and cable are at the rear so that was convenient. Sewer was well located, but not threaded. WI-FI was not reliable. Cable was very good. Good Sam rate. We stayed for 5 nights. Interior roads need repair. The activity center has been upgraded and expanded. The staff and fellow campers were friendly and helpful. The campground is gated, so be sure you have the code handy when you come in after office hours. We felt safe and the campground is quiet. The location is convenient to Padre Island and area attractions. Overall, we were not satisfied with Breeze Lake, but don't know of a better place to stay if we return. - Scott & Nancy
