It’s a KOA. Staff is friendly and experienced. This is owned by Koa. Trash pickup. Yeah!
WiFi weak, At&T weak. Close sites. No palm trees blocking Directv. Great location. Toured Isla Blanca park, it looked dismal by comparison. Laundry was rated good.
GREAT pool. South padre, hard to frown. Stayed 10 nights in April. About $60 per night.

It’s a wonderful clean RV Park. The RVs are packed in and most are the Winter Texans but we pull a 20’ R Pod and scored a lovely private spacious corner lot!!! #85. (Gravel: and we have no problems with it). Love It. Landscaping is strategic for privacy. The staff have been very helpful; they held our spot without charge, for the weekend in the event we wanted to extend. So easy to go out at night to the Brewery or Laguna Bob’s (wonderful Mahi Mahi sandwich) to watch the sunset AND they have a Pier 19 Restaurant on the KOA property. We did not eat at Pier 19 but the parking lot looked like a lot of people did go. There is only one other very small RV/campground on SPI. To have this monopoly; KOA does not disappoint.

This is the tightest campground I have ever been in. Their greed has ruined this place by squeezing way too many sites in the space they have. Staff had no time for us...only for the people staying for the season. We moved over to Isla Blanca Park and recommend it over the KOA. There is no grass, pavement and crushed gravel. I don’t understand why anyone would stay here.

Adequate, But Not Five Star
I had seen 4-to-5 star ratings on other sites, but this park does not meet that standard. The sites are not paved, but not only that, they are covered with ROCKS (the size of river rock used in landscaping), not fine crushed gravel used for paving. This is all there is on the sites — no paved patio, no grass. It is very hard to walk on, even in the sturdiest of shoes, let alone flip flops or sandals. I can’t imagine trying to set up folding chairs or other outdoor items.
The picnic table is very weathered, and the benches sag badly.
We were escorted to our site, but we were not assisted in lining up our 5’er. While that isn’t necessary in most pull-through sites, this site is at an odd angle, and is not long enough to park the coach and truck in line. We could not get the truck on the site the first night, and had to do considerable maneuvering the next day to get the 5’er and truck to fit.
I have stayed at a true 5-star RV resort; while this is not 5-star, it is adequate.

The campground is clean & organized. Workers are helpful & polite. We had some great pool & beach days. The town has much to offer. We will gladly return.

We stayed here for 5 nights. No complaints about the town or beach. The camp ground was immaculate . Only one complaint, very had to walk on the huge rocks!

South Padre KOA
We stayed here for a week in January of 2016 with a 31' class C pulling a Mini Cooper on a tow dolly. It was sunny and warm. There is a nice pool and hot tub.
We arrived without reservations but I would recommend having them because it was pretty full the whole time we were there.

Very Noisy Stay
This was our first visit to this KOA. It is a very nice place. I am a value card member and I do appreciate the discounts. I do have one concern about this KOA. There were plenty of spots available, but we were placed at the main entrance where the traffic is very heavy a good bit of the time. I think we will find a different RV park next time.

This was our first weekend at the SPI KOA and loved it. Everyone was very friendly, the staff was extremely helpful and the whole area was clean. The playground was shut down which made me a little sad but they are working on it so that is exciting for our next trip out here. The sites are a tight fit compared to other parks we have been but the location, friendliness and cleanliness made up for that. The showers and pool were squeaky clean and there was a nice area to chill and play board games with the kids. The place is pet friendly and they even have a dog play area, pretty cool! Overall it was awesome and we will book again soon.
