RV CAMPING (and Car / Tent Sites)

KOA:   (956) 761-5665koa sign

A great RV camping site, with the nicest facilities, a pool, and an excellent restaurant on site ‘Pier 19’.  Tent sites and Cabins available also. Located on the South end of the Island, and although on the water, there is no easy access to either flatwater or ocean riding, a rental car or taxi ride would be best.



Isla Blanca Park and Andie Bowie Park are 2 other great RV camping options both are managed by Cameron County Parks Dept

Isla Blanca Park:  (956) 761-5494isla blanca park

Located on the Southern tip of the Island, Isla Blanca is a big RV park, get a spot as close to the ocean as possible for an easy walk to great surf riding in the Ocean.  Advanced riders can launch into flatwater at Dolphin Cove as well.






Andy Bowie Park:  (956) 761-3704andybowiepark

Located on the Northern end (of town) Andy Bowie Park is a small RV park with a path to the ocean for surf riding AND within walking distance to flatwater riding at the South Flats.

Off the Grid RV and Tent Camping

Ocean front and On the Beach:  North of town at beach access 5 you can drive onto the beach and park and camp overnight.  Long term camping is discouraged but short term is no problem.  Find a flat spot behind high tide line and before vegetation / dune line.  Fires are ok (encouraged), just keep it clean!

On the Road up North:  An alternative to parking on the beach itself is simply to park along the side of the road anywhere North of beach access 5 is ok (the further north the better usually, the very end is a great spot).  Keeps the car (and everything else) cleaner than parking on the beach and is easier in general (imo).

In the Flats:  Its probably not technically ok to park and camp in the flats, so dont.  However if you were to look you would find many nice flat, quiet, private, out of site spots from which you could let your dogs run and enjoy great peaceful camping.  Anywhere North of SPIW North Flats would be where you might find such a spot if said spot was ok to camp at…
