Mustang Island State Park
Families enjoy a serene environment at Mustang Island State Park in tents and RVs. Fishing, bonfires, building sand castles and beachcombing for shells are popular pastimes at this State Park. Along this 5 mile stretch of beach, just south of Port Aransas, visitors not only have convenience with bathrooms and shower facilities, the park store offers souvenirs, ice, firewood and snacks. With some 48 sites at the campgrounds to choose from, with electrical and water hookups, picnic tables and barbecue grills- Mustang Island State Park is a popular weekend retreat to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Other activities include surfing, birdwatching and kayaking.
The Mustang Island State Park Paddling Trail is also available to visitors and consists of the North Trail, the Shamrock Loop Trail and the Ashum Trail. All of the trails follow the western shoreline of Mustang Island in Corpus Christi Bay, and pass through some of the best shallow-water fishing areas in Texas. The Ashum Trail follows the shoreline of Corpus Christi Bay over a firm sand bottom and allows for outstanding bird watching as well as sight casting opportunities.
