On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23rd, at 1:30 PM, do not miss our festive feast! KOA provides the turkey, ham, potatoes, & gravy. Guests bring a dish to share (salad, side, or dessert). People like to bring their specialties, so it is always a spectacular meal. A festive afternoon of fun and fellowship and it is FREE to our KOA guests.
Our KOA was featured on the Happy Camper Radio Show! Tom is their special guest (Tom's interview starts about six & a half minutes into the show). Please listen all the way to the end because the South Padre Island KOA is also the featured campground after the interview! The Happy Camper Radio Show is a family oriented camping podcast. Their focus is on building and maintaining family unity in an outdoor recreational environment.
Texas Outside has been camping in Texas since 1980 and they release a list of the best RV Parks in Texas. Our KOA made their list! To make the list the parks need high ratings on scenic beauty, park amenities, things to do in the park and nearby, campsites, and cleanliness and condition. Each of their reviews highlight what they like about the park, what there is to see and do when you visit the park, and gives lots of unbiased information about the Best Parks.

Of course, we already knew that we had some of the best beaches in America, but now everybody knows! Who says you need a passport in search of turquoise waters and pristine shores?

South Padre Island is featured on Yahoo Travel. Check it out...
South Padre Island is only a half-mile wide at its widest point, which means you are always just steps away from the beach and world class activities. Named Best for Birders in the Best Beaches in America list by Men's Journal 2014, Sea Turtle, Inc. was named Best Kids Attractions in the U.S. in 2014 by Gogobot's Travelers' Favorites Awards. SPI named Most Accessible Beach by Texas Land Commission in 2014. Named to TripAdvisor's List of Top 25 Beaches in the U.S. and listed as TripAdvisor's top five vacation rental hot spots. Come see for yourself!

Guess who is featured in Scuba Diving Magazine as one of the 50 Stellar American Dive Sites. It is the USTS Texas Clipper off the coast of South Padre Island. At 473 feet long, this 1997 purpose- sunk wreck is the third largest in the U.S. The massive wreck attracts passing pelagics — everything from whale sharks to sunfish to hammerheads. Currents permitting, this dive is open to those of all experience levels; depths range from 60 to 130 feet. Come see us at the South Padre Island KOA and experience this unique dive.
Check out this article! South Padre Island is featured in this Fox News list of islands where summer lasts all year long!
Woodall's has rated our park as among the Best of the Best! Our park is one of only 333 listed in the Woodall's North American Campground Directory to attain Woodall's highest 5W rating in both Facilities and Recreation! This select group represents less than 4% of the privately owned parks included in the most recent edition.
With KOA's online reservation system, you no longer have to pick up the phone and call the front desk. Instead, simply follow the steps on our web page and book an RV site or a deluxe cabin (waterfront, studio, loft lodge, or condo) for your South Padre vacation! Of course, we are also happy to help you by phone at 800-562-9724.
