We loved this park so much that we stayed an extra night! We had a premium spot on the pond and the price reflects that. Expensive but definitely worth it. Sites are privately owned and therefore are landscaped by the individual owners. All sites were very well maintained, landscaped and level. Our site was quite large, which allowed plenty of room for our daughters to play. The next site over was close enough to say hi but far enough for privacy. Everyone seemed very friendly. The beach wasn't far and was accessible by a private boardwalk. The pool was heated and very clean. There are only two bathrooms, which are located in the club house. The park seemed to be mostly of winter Texans and retirees, although there were families mixed in as well. If you are looking for a ton of activities/amenities, this park isn't for you. If you enjoy quiet family time and relaxing by the beach, this is it. We drove by the park we had been originally planning to stay in and it was packed, with everyone cramped together. We did not want to leave Gulf Waters and we're already planning on our next trip for next month.

This park could be a really nice park if the sites were maintained a bit better. The sites were gravel but need to be re-graveled. Sites were also not level. The back-up site we had was difficult to get into. There was an enormous amount of ants and stickers (sand burrs). Enjoying the outside was difficult because of that. Considering it was a holiday weekend, the park was not crowded. The park itself was quiet; there is noise from nearby I-10. Facilities were clean. Didn't get to enjoy the pool. For the price, you'd expect cable. Wi-fi signal was good and strong.

Wonderful park with level pads. Each site had its own manicured patch of grass (complete with sprinkler system), a tree and picnic table. We didn't get in until 9:30 at night and were pleasantly surprised by a lighted utility post. There is a breakfast every Saturday (we didn't go but in-laws said it was very nice). There were pools, hot tubs (including adults only), and a playground. The stream was very nice, stocked with fish (catch & release). Unfortunately, it was hard to get to without having to walk onto someone's site. Staff/park hosts were friendly. Full-time camper's sites were well maintained. Will definitely return!
