My partner and I vacationed there in 1996 after visiting my folks in Center Point, TX. It turned out to be the nicest, most peaceful and relaxing six day vacation I have probably ever had. We drove a 1986 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4 to get us there over the mostly sand covered roadway which had been destroyed by a previous hurricane and never re-built. I remember a man fishing with a throw-net and we saw many happy people enjoying the sun away from the cares of the world. A local family on bicycles came riding past the beach on the remains of the washed out road next to the beach and never said one unkind word. If the world is ever turned inside out, this is where I would like to be so I can go out just as I came in. Prepare well with a cooler and food because you'll want to stay all day and there are no facilities there. There were a couple of RV motorhomes but I have no idea how they made it considering the road condition, but they did. Stay away from the weeds, as they have mosquitos that will pounce on you they are so hungry.
