This is a pretty municipal park at the end of a tiny one-road town. To the east are dunes and the Gulf of Mexico and to the west is an enormous LNG plant that dominates the horizon. It is unsettling to see this kind of industrialization from your window. However, there is a small bird sanctuary a short walk from the park which was always busy with photographers and bird watchers with binoculars. It was nice to see folks interested in the natural habitat. There were patches of Texas wildflowers along the road and in the park which were blooming and colorful on the blustery overcast days that we had. The beach is advertised as "natural", which means that they don't clean up the seaweed that washes up. That did not bother us. Dogs are allowed on the beach with a leash and our dogs really enjoyed that. We took them on many long walks. Be aware that there are signs in the walking areas that say to be aware of snakes. Fortunately for me, I did not see any. I am assuming it was due to the spring chill and wind that was still in the air during our stay. There is a jetty and a harbor channel that huge tanker ships use to take raw materials to the LNG plant. It was fun watching the ships come and go. We had plenty of food so did not need groceries and did not eat at any local places. The closest ones seemed to be about 20-30 minutes away as you have to go around the plant and the Port of Freeport to get to them. We did stop at the Buc-Ees that had a basic setup and seemed to be geared toward fishing supplies. We did not experience any problem with the mosquitoes (it was windy and in the 50’s while we were there). We were in Spoonbill #56 and our campsite was level and the utilities were easy to use. The laundry was $1.50 for washer and dryers. I had to use them for a small load and was happy with the results. My load was dry in less than 40 minutes and the dryer still had time left on it. We used the showers and bathroom. While rustic, they were very nicely maintained and the water had great pressure and got hot very quickly. We camped at Quintana Beach County Park in a 22 Ft Travel Trailer.
