2nd time we have stayed here. I don't know the charge for actual daily rates, as we are here for work related reasons and pay by the month, which breaks down to a lower daily rate around 18.00. I saw a review from someone who said there were drunk people running around in a golf cart and stuff was stolen. We have been here twice and stayed 2 months or so last year and a month this year. There has NEVER been a problem with loud drunk people and have NEVER had anything stolen. We have left grills, chair, tools, an extra portable satellite dish, etc, outside and never had any problems.
It is a woodsy type campground. (I love that about it) There aren't concrete slabs. No big deal to us. Yes, there is a race track beside it and you can hear the cars on the weekend, but really hasn't been an issue for us. Yes, there people who live there and have for some time and yes there are people who come in for work on shut downs at the nearby plants. You're going to have that at any park that is near places with refineries and chemical plants. Someone has to come in to help keep them updated and safe. No problems with anyone. Clean grounds, restrooms, nice pool, peaceful lake with geese, lots of trees, fresh woodsy air.
My only complaint is the water pressure and the wifi is not very good.
Other than that, We like it and we will stay again. We camped at Picture Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Here for work for a couple months. Overall was a nice place to stay.
The good: It's a nice, quiet park and has a security person at night on the weekends. There is a pier you can fish from. The park itself is pretty clean. There is a laundry room which is rather small but clean. The bath rooms were also kind of small but clean. The pool is nice. They will also accept packages if you need something sent, and have mailboxes available. If you need by the month and can get a spot on the inside, it's about 500 plus power, not too bad.
The bad: My biggest complaint -The internet is horrible, had to jump off my phone often. You can pretty much forget trying to use the WiFi when everyone is home from work in the evening and on weekends.
Lots 93-111 are called bay front and they charge premium price, they are not bay front and there may be 2 spaces that you can see the water between the buildings in front of you, so those are way overpriced. (but all the "bay front" are overpriced, in my opinion). Although a better rate than 50.00 per day for daily rates, 700 a month plus power is a little on the high side. There is some trash along the water line on the canal side. We camped at Galveston Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I find it interesting that a previous post was from Oct 2013 as we were told the campground was only 4 months old when stayed between May and June 2014. But, neither here nor there, the plus side is the park is clean and quiet. The couple who manages the place are very nice people. There is a pool and a small gym (2 treadmills, a stepper, a bicycle and some free weights). The laundry room is clean. That being said, the monthly rate is 650.00 based on 28 days plus electricity, which is little pricey compared to other places nearby. The only reason we stayed here was because it was the closest we could get to LaPorte as all the other campgrounds were completely full. They call it a resort, it's a nice park, but "resort" it is not. The "lake" is a pond. There 27 channels on their satellite. The WiFi is intermittent - (loses connection a lot). The concrete pads are narrow. If you have two vehicles, the spaces they are supposed to accommodate are shorter and they charge an additional 25.00. They also charge an additional 25.00 if you want to use the "overflow" parking spaces. As for the parallel spaces the previous person was talking about, they are supposed to be putting "cabins" in those slots to rent. Until then, they allow campers to park there. too. Like I said, overall, it's quiet, it's clean, it's nice. If your looking for an actual "resort", this isn't it. Would we stay here again? Probably not unless we didn't have a choice. Bottom line is I have seen places just as nice for 100-150 less per month. We camped at Marina Bay Lake Cove RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were there about six weeks. The park, the pool, the laundry, and restroom facilities were all kept clean and working. WiFi worked well. I believe the cable included close to 70 channels. They have "cabins" for rent. It was pretty much filled to capacity while we were there. It was quiet and very convenient to everything. (shopping, restaurants etc). The rent was 500 a month (28 days) including electricity. Although, the price goes up to 600 during the summer months because management stated the extra a/c used drove up the power costs. The campground is pretty much all concrete. There was space enough in our slot to park both trucks beside each other. We would stay here again. We camped at Access RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
