Mustang Island reopens for overnight camping

Mustang Island State Park will reopen for overnight camping almost two years after storm damage from Hurricane Harvey delayed a project on the campgrounds, according to a Texas Parks and Wildlife news release.

Damage from Hurricane Harvey delayed a previously scheduled restroom replacement project, which included significant plumbing and electrical work that affected campground electrical service and portions of wastewater systems in the park.

“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, superintendent at Mustang Island State Park. “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.”

Additional Harvey repairs are ongoing at park buildings, including the headquarters and maintenance shop.

Overnight campground reservations for Mustang Island State Park can be made on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website or by phone at 512-389-8900.

Beach camping sites are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. For availability, call the park at 361-749-5246.
