This is a nice park, no real amenities unless you count the Gulf of Mexico. Campground is right on the beach front, just steps from the Gulf and the sand. Close to the town of Port Aransas, so going out to dinner is easy. It's a state park, expect all (or the lack of) you get with that, but the... More

I really loved my RV Camping experience at the IB Magee Beach State Park. First of all, only the dunes were between me and the beach, so the wave music was loud and clear. A nice on shore breeze blew constantly and was very pleasant. The campgrounds provide spacious sites, large enough for me to turn around with my jeep... More

We chose to camp on the beach in their "Primitive" area. Typically primitive areas don't have dozens of RVs camped out with generators blaring the entire night. Unless you're the type that falls asleep to incredibly loud machinery I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere for tent camping spots. This specific location doesn't seem to have a limit on how many... More

We chose this campground for the location, our kids love the jetty, and the fact that we could have up to 8 campers. We have a family of 7 and most places will only allow 6 in a spot. We are about halfway through our stay and the only complaint I might have is the puddles that collect if it... More

Camped with a large group of women over 4 days. Beautiful location! We had an event on the top floor of the clubhouse one evening. Amazing views! Lots of crowds on the weekend, but nearly had the beach to ourselves during the week. Could not go walking on the wooden walkways in the park as they were too overgrown. The... More

Great location. Clean, safe restrooms. Good price. Plenty of power and water. If you go to the beach to be AT the beach, this is a great camping location. They take reservations but not your credit card. It was a nice, easy process.

Sites can accommodate large RV's and are flat. Power is outdated and should be raised to 50 amp however that would raise the prices significantly.Have been coming here on and off since the late 80's and Port A is still a cool place to hang out in. Beach is safe however weed can be a nuisance but they do their... More

We stayed 11 days. It is convenient to everything. I liked that the restrooms are not accessible for everyone. You need a code to get in. They are cleaned daily. Everyone we met was extraordinarily friendly. The beach was nice and relaxing and we had a great time fishing from the jetty. Many shops and restaurants within walking distance. Planning... More

Family of 4, 2 kids, live in the area, camping with a pop up camper. If you need a couple amenities provided with your beach camping, IB Magee is BY FAR the best value for miles and miles. Camping ON the beach is free after the purchase of an annual parking permit of $12, but I think a public restroom... More
