I'll bet the state wished they had their money back! A good cast from the end of this pier will get you into 5-foot of water. Not exactly a good place for big fish. Best thing- it was free last time I went, might charge...More

Not in a hurry and prepared to turn immediately after the bridge to Portland, we stopped here. So pleasant. Not sure if fish bite here. Saw a few piggy perch caught, Lots of crab bait stealers! Intend to go back.

I like this place been coming here every time I visit. My girls will go sea shell hunting and we always will do a little fishing off the docks. We have also did a little boating in the area before.

My son loved to go fishing with his grandparents here. It was my parents favorite spot. Some nice young men fishing here gave my some great pointers.

Hurricane Irma floated this park. 5 weeks later the park is still floated. By the looks of things, I think this park will be floated for a long time. The water would have to be pumped out. The park can be viewed from highway 181.

Took a quick trip to do some birding of shorebirds here. I was surprised at the number of birds and diversity at this spot along the highway. Pretty views of the bayfront of Corpus Christi across the bay, too.
