Mustang Island
Is there anywhere down there where you can ride on the beach? we are in Port Neches and was thinking about Jeeping it down to play on the beach just wondering if the beaches were Jeep freindly

Cant seem to locate any current information on websites.

Yes you can drive jeeps on the beach, just need a parking permit that you can pick up at any gas station on the island. jp luby is a small stretch between packery channel and the state park. The state park you can also drive but there is a fee to get in, forgot how much i dont go. Then north of that to port A there will be some more access roads to get on the beach.

PINS is probably better for jeeping as further down it isnt crowded at all and will have more challenging terrain.

Just one thing no driving in the dunes at all as it is illegal and the beaches have the same laws as streets so you can't donuts and such.

And only drive on the beaches if you don't want your jeep. Rust is bad here

as long as you rinse your undercarriage off real good you won't have issues with rust. just don't be dumb and drive in the water then your garanteed to rust out

superj 10-05-2010 05:23 PM

it won't stop it, even rinsing. i lost a truck and a trooper2 and i never went in the water.

shoot, i have cars i never even took on the sand because we parked at holiday inn and they rusted out

I live in Port A and my Jeep is rusted.....oh well.

Yeah rust is inevitable if you go to the beach, rinsing helps but it wont stop it. just make sure you keep up with any rust spots before it gets cancerous.

my truck with a triple undercoat has lasted a good 7 years without much rusting with a usual weekend trip to the beach atleast twice a month. never underestimate the power of a good rinse my friends.

oh and now i have a 2010 jeep wrangler that has been taking the same abuse for over a year. the water is visible from my home so it doesnt get much saltier than that

superj 10-11-2010 11:32 AM

same thing for me. i can walk to the laguna in about 3 minutes. i can see the bay from my front yard and the kids rise their bikes and play at the little park at the end of our street

subwyking 12-28-2010 05:12 PM

i think so.

You can drive on the beach there, but most of it isn't really "jeepin" type material. Just about any car can drive on it and it is counted as a street.

The Padre Island National seashore has some stretches that are marked as "4wd only", and although I have never tested those sections out for myself, I would assume that they would make for a more engaging drive, should that be what you're looking for.
