$5 Entrance Fee (Free for Children). 300 Drive-up Primitive Campsites ($10/ night). 1.5 miles of maintained beach. Bonfires are allowed. Watch the sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico.

Mustang Island State Park is five miles of Texas Coastline that is maintained by the Texas Parks Department and offers overnight camping. With cool winds and temperate waters, this is a perfect spot to get away for the weekend.

Once you arrive at the entrance just head over to the Ranger Station to get your nightly permit. Once obtained, there are signs directing you to the 1.5miles of coastline that you can camp on. Just drive along the beach until you find the spot for you and set up camp! Don't forget to bring your firewood so you can cook dinner and have a place to hang out once it gets dark. In the morning, you get to witness a beautiful sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico. All the sites are non-reservable, so if it is the weekend I recommend getting there early so you can have a great spot!
