We have stayed at the KOA South Padre Island several times. We use to have a travel trailer but now stay in their deluxe cabins. The cabins are located right on the bay with beautiful views. They are well equipped even including a very clean outdoor grill and table with chairs. The cabins are perfect for families looking for something...

We used to love this place, but it is really going downhill. Do not come here on a summer weekend unless you thrive on chaos. Locals stop here prior to going home to use the restrooms and shower. Management does not seem to care. Every morning one or more of the commodes is backed up and overflowing. Waken in the...

We were here for the week of Spring Break (March 2016). I was not impress with this place. The cabin was ocean view but it also stunk. I am not sure if it was we were so close to the restaurant or to the dumpster. the kitchen and living room area were not bad but the bedroom was extremely small...

This was our second visit here. Staff is very friendly, helpful and they respond quickly to any concern. Pool is large and nice! It is easy to launch kayak from park. You can see both fireworks displays at the same time from the park. Pier 19 restaurant on site is good and also has a great bartender who makes excellent...

This is a great place to take the RV. It has activities for the kids, a movie and night and a swimming pool. One of the highlights is its right across the street from Schlitterbahn. Plenty of things to do.

I was taking care of my grandmother for the majority of my stay here and let me tell you, this place is not handicap friendly. They do the absolute bare minimum. There is a ramp to the condo section and ONE handicap parking space. The cabins were accessible by stair only and just forget about going anywhere other than the...

We have a 42 ft fifth wheel and it was a tight squeeze trying to park and settle in. You literally are almost on top of your neighbor at this place and for $60 a night it's costly to stay here. It's looked like a nightmare Monday morning with all rv's trying to exit with limited space.

We stayed at this park many years ago and always had a great time. We recommended it to our friends to stay at for my daughter's wedding weekend. The first night we stayed up a little past ten talking while our kids played in our site. We didn't have a radio on and no one was being loud. Our neighbours...

The view is the best thing about this campground. The accommodations were great. The showers and bathroom clean. The pool was well maintained. The rates are a little pricey but if you compare it to renting a hotel room, your money is well spent for the view that you get. I wish each campsite had a little more green space....

This is the most awesome place to stay in your campers, RV's or rent a fully furnished cabin ocean front. We stayed in the RV's in 2 sites for Spring Break with Our Daughter & her 4 boys. Pier 19 there at the KOA has the best meals on the island and a very affordable price. The Campground is super...
