I decided to head down and see this park, but would only be staying one night. I would have liked to stay longer, but I was on my way to meet with my family on South Padre Island.
This park is in an out of the way secluded area. A place to relax on the beach, walk along the shore or to fish. There are also several kayaking trails.

You drive right through some refineries to get here - the benefit of that is low gas prices.
The road heading west toward the Galveston ferry is permanently closed, so there is only one way in/out and you have to backtrack.
