No wifi, & can't seem to fix it. Advertised as having wifi but there is none. Turned water off one day to whole park but did not advise anyone. I was running washer in my coach & afraid the pump was going to be damaged. Lights on patio deck quit working & staff just said hmmm, guess something is wrong with them. Pool cloudy. No beach, but there is a view from some spots. Fix wifi a must.

As always, I enjoy staying at KOA, but somehow this KOA conitues to have a problem with losing their power. It's hard to enjoy your stay when The electricily keeps going out. This is the 4th year that we have stayed & experienced this problem & I'm affraid that my DC converter might get damaged. This happened to my sisters trailer 2 yrs ago while staying at this KOA and having the same problem.

As always our weekend stay was great. The staff was friendly and helpful, quiet time was enforced.

Our stay was great with one small enconvenious. The space (29) we were in was a tad to tight. Not enough room. Both neighbors were right on us. And the parking was not great.

Folks there are friendly enough. The sites, however, are small and narrow. Big rigs will have difficulty getting in and out, particularly if they are full. Damage to concrete planters is everywhere in the park from being hit by people trying to get in or out. WiFi is rather iffy and not strong at all. This is the only spot in town, which probably underlies why it is below par.

Great campground with friendly staff but the full-time 'summer' campers sure take away from the stay. The full time campers have more stuff than fits on their space and it bleeds over onto the neighboring spots. Not to mention the full-time 'summer' residents have no camping etiquette. Please note I have not witnessed these issues with your full time 'winter' residents. Thanks

The management was the best. They were very helpful and welcoming. The facilities were good, but some minor repairs are needed. Even realizing that it IS South Padre Island, the fees were a bit high, as compared to most KOA's.

Awesome place will definitly return.

A little expensive for what you get, but it was a decent place to stay. The bathrooms were well maintained and people there were respectful of your space.

Park is well maintained and staff is very friendly. Will stay again.

Staff was amazing, clean grounds and easy access to the island. Will definitely be looking for KOA spots as we travel in the future.

I just love this KOA. Very convenient to restaurants and the strip. Nicely kept public areas. Nice activities. Great staff! Phil and Linda were exceptional.

Clean, well maintained, great location. I was in space 165 I think, and the only issue was that the water and cable connections were located were located on a site behind mine. Staff provided assistance in resolving.

Fun fun fun

Office rarely open. No clean men's bathroom available during construction. No amenities like bike's etc available from KOA. Only help from KOA staff was pointing to brochures for area info

Our first time staying in a cabin. It worked very well for us and would do it again if we don't want to pull our 5th wheel.

Enjoyable stay - Thanks

We love the cabins by the water. Very relaxing and away from the crowds. The area does need to get a little painting and beautification to make it a bit more appealing and not like it is a work in progress. This is the beginning of summer and it should look nicer. Staff was very friendly. Really enjoyed our stay. Back parking lot area could be a bit better. An old boat and truck took up much space

There was only one restroom stall available for the men, everything else was under construction. Would like to see some sort of temp facility or a reduction of price due to inconvience. Great place to stay but restroom set up bad

Over all we had a pleasant stay but this KOA is the most expensive campground on the island. Would rather have stayed somewhere else but all the cheaper campgrounds were full. Over all nice stay but the new WIFI system was terrible and barely worked.

Stay was good except for site. We had a 40 ft fifth wheel and almost could not get out. Made for a sleepless nite before we left.

Sites were horrible!! Very small no grass!! We brought food to cook out but there was no grill!!! We had to go buy a grill to cook our food. The staff was not friendly at all! I wouldn't recomend it to anyone!!

Let me start with the staff is great! But don't take the no sewer sites they are lit all night by halogen lights, there are no BBQ pits at the sites and some genius decided to remodel the main bathrooms on a holiday weekend leaving only one toilet for all the men to share. Over all this is the worst KOA I've stayed at in my near 40 years of camping.
Jun 04, 2014
Only issue was the closure of the men's facilities

Had a great time thanks for everything

Instead of being a vacation, I waisted time moving from cabin to cabin because there were problems with tv. Second waterfront cabin was worse, tv not working and water all over the bedroom because of air condition leaks water inside cabin. Spend time cleaning up mess and changing jar of water every time it would get full. Also that sewer smell outside all day long. Could not even cook outside.

The facilities are very clean and the staff are super friendly. It was our second year visiting South Padre KOA and we will go again.
Jun 01, 2014
Will return, hosts were great with information and expertise

For the price, felt there should have been cement pads instead of chunky gravel at the sites. And trees or bushes - something to relieve the gravel. Showers needed benches or at least shelves.

The cabins were located on the water but the smell from the gulf was so severe we could not even breathe the air outside the cabin. We were told the smell is from the mangroves, but they should have told us about this prior to booking. It is very deceiving to see all the stuff on the web but actually it was one worst experiences we have had on any beach properties.

Loved staying at the lodges. Hopefully we can stay a little longer on our next trip. We had 6 families stay at the KOA on this trip. We all had a great time.

Nice place, but overpriced. Would chose country park on the beach after checking it out. Pier 19 good
May 28, 2014
Pool needs cleaning. Need better WiFi.

As always the staff make the stay so much more fun. We love it.
