Mustang Island State Park Reopens Overnight Camping
Beach campers rejoice! Mustang Island State Park has reopened for the first time to overnight camping since Hurricane Harvey hit in August 2017.
“The staff of Mustang Island State Park is excited to once again be able to offer camping opportunities to visitors from around the world,” said Scott Taylor, the park’s superintendent. “We look forward to seeing all of the park visitors who have patiently waited as park repairs were made following Hurricane Harvey, and we would like to thank everyone for the continued support they have shown for their Texas state park.”
Restrooms were the holdup, but they have since been repaired with upgraded plumbing and electric and wastewater systems. Other buildings at the park are still undergoing repairs.
Sites can be reserved for overnight camping online at the Texas State Parks website. Campers may also call (512) 389-8900.
Reservations are site-specific, apart from beach camping sites, which will remain as walk-up only. Camping sites may be closed and become unavailable with little notice, so call the park at (361) 749-5246 before arriving to check status.
