  • Drove all along the beach and also camped here. It was very crowded on the weekend but not too bad during the week. They were getting ready for Sandfest while we were there. This was very cool to see and watch being built.
  • We loved camping on Port Aransas Beach! We saw tons of wildlife from birds, to sea stars, to a full sand dollar. The sand was firm and we felt very safe in our camper overnight. We will definitely be back! Follow our family‚Äôs full time travel journey through state and national parks on Instagram: @arndts.arent.staying.put
