Mustang Island State Park is a pretty secluded place. It is right off the main road but there is nothing else for a few miles around it. There is an RV like campground, which is just about 40, or so slots that have water and electricity for RV’s to hook up too. We were one of the only tent campers there. When we booked our site we were not aware that the campground was like this. We expected it to bee just like other places we camped. There was a place were you could camp right on the beach, but you could not have an open fire and there was no electricity or water. The beach was only about 110 yards from where we were so it was not too far. But it was not what we had in mind. There is only one bathroom with showers for that whole campground. The camp ground was very quite and we had no problems as far as our stuff being bothered ( with people right next to you and being right by the road) It was pretty pleasant camping and the people that were around us were quite nice. The cost for camping is $8 for primitive (which is right on the beach with no water or electricity) and $16 for the ones with water and electric hook ups. And then $4 a day for entrance. Some people just pay to use the beach during the day.The beach is very clean and a nice beach to play on. The only thing I would warn you of is there is lots of Portuguese- man -of -wars that wash up on shore at night and they are still very much able to sting you. So be aware of walking along the beach. Look out for them. They are a very blue color and they look like balloons that are deflating. You can also see other things like barnacles, seaweed, and other little living things that get washed up.
