We have camped at Padre Island before--but it was before the hurricanes.  It WAS a very nice campground -no idea what it is like now. There were  ocean front and second row campsites, showers and potable water available. It had no electrical hookups. There was a dump station for campers only.
I would definitely go back if the campground has been rebuilt/repaired-I know the hurricanes did a massive amount of damage-including destroying the visitor's center.
Better check with them before you make plans
safe travels

Hi Jay, I've not been there but I can tell you that many universities have re-arranged their Spring terms this year to eliminate spring break. They don't want students leaving and then coming back with COVID. You might want to check what Texas schools have done, but this year will probably be better than most on that count.

Has anyone camped on the beach at Padre Island National Seashore?  We are thinking of trying that out in March/April this year.  Just wanting to know what to expect.  Is it real busy in early to mid March with "Spring Breakers", how is the cell coverage, and what is the mosquito/black flies like that time of year?  Keeping in mind that we are leaving behind in Michigan the white stuff.
