We loved this park! Right on the island. Super close to Galveston Island just over the bridge. Nice fishing spot right from their dock. Very nice people that run the park. We stayed there for 7 month last year. We paid $400 a month plus electric. Washers and dryers are FREE!!! - SGTABN82

This is a gem of a park. It is the cleanest and best run park we have been to. There are many permanent rigs but they must maintain a well-kept site or leave. Two great complementary laundry rooms. Two public decks by the water.
We would definitely stay here again. - Al H

This is a hidden gem of a park. It is mostly seasonal residents but it is a beautiful park along the inter coastal waterway. The sites are level concrete and look brand new. There is a small patch of grass between the sites. The views are spectacular. The staff is great and the owner very nice. They offer FREE washer and dryers in there immaculate laundry rooms. The only negative that we had was the train whistles that are very loud day and night. Beautiful sunsets and the proximity to Galveston Island and shopping, along with the other things mentioned, would make us come back and stay here again. - followin' the sun

Level concrete sites. Easy on and off to interstate. Easy to ride bicycle. Laundry was good. Exercise room was unusable. Did not use showers because they were very dirty. Showers needed large improvement. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Campground is part of RV sales and new campers are parked in empty sites. - Fulltimersrv

Ok considering this is not a destination location (in my opinion) and more of a stop over area it was more then adequate. We made a reservation for two spots as had travel companions. Called two days prior to make reservations. We advised of a late arrival but they said they could not guarantee someone would not take our spot. They indicated many ppl come in throughout the night and will take a spot if available. In any case we gave it a shot. Arrived at night but only one spot reserved. Luckily they listed other open spots and we found another for our companion. Site we spacious put not table, fire pit, etc. All spots all pull thru that I could tell. I would of rated 8 but knocked down due to reservation mixup and they are really first come first serve as someone can take your spot during late arrival if they are selfish. Trash bins were also overflowing but maybe it was a trash day. All in all good stopover spot with good pricing and adequate sites. Bathroom/showers were clean. - QFamCA

Warning: If you enter by following the RV Park signs you will encounter a difficult right turn with a very deep ditch. The locals said there is at least one occurrence a month here. Our site had an electrical issue and we were relocated. They have cable, but you need to attach a separate box (office provides) to your TV. The landscape for the most part is very nice and the pool area, bathroom/showers, laundry are all kept clean. The new manager has gone out of his way to be helpful and the staff is nice. After finally getting settled, we are happy here. - JMTP

This is a very basic park. It has the necessary facilities, but they are minimal and "get by" quality. They were supposed to have WiFi, but couldn't get it to work - saw the signals. They are supposed to have satellite cable, but we just used our antenna, so don't know if it works or not. Lots of permanents here with not much to offer vacation campers.
The staff was friendly and helpful, so if the rest of the park were that good, it would be OK.
We stayed here 4 nights only because the park we normally stay at off 61st Street in Galveston was flooded due to rains and high winds. We were gone all day and only came back to sleep at night. It seems to be a safe place to stay, and fairly quiet.
We would not stay here again unless we were in a similar situation again. I think it is overpriced for what they have to offer. - luketx

My advice is to ignore the previous comments as they are several years old. Obviously things have changed drastically! This park is home for oil workers in the area and is absolutely awful. The sites were smaller than advertised (we had difficulty fitting a 30ft RV in the space), no amenities, and quite a lot of garbage and litter. It also was also very muddy even though it had not rained for several days. We didn't even stay. It was bad enough that we decided to go to a truck stop instead of staying even one night. - Colorado Barbara

Points lost for no fire ring & picnic table at every site, but otherwise a great little park. A good share of longterm, but very friendly people. Quite the cast of characters, & not in a negative way at all. We really enjoyed our few days there. The layout is very unusual too with campsites arranged around joined cul de sacs. The whole place is neat & tidy. - Veebyes

Rate reflects weekly rate of $160. This park is under new management. The management was very friendly and helpful and fun to just chat with. They had been on the job three weeks when we pulled in and we were a bit nervous as the previous reviews were not very good. We found this campground a very good base for visiting Galveston and Houston. There are four 'pods' with the sites arranged in a circle, much like a cul de sac. We were in 'A' for Azalea in spot A-4. We were allowed to park our trailer in a vacant spot for the duration of our stay, one week, without charge. The only thing we found lacking was the Wi-Fi; we couldn't get it where we were. Management is working on improving this. We would stay here again if we visit the area. - Bandit23

This park has been here for ten years, according to the owner. It needs some TLC. The concrete slabs are laden with gravel which could easily be swept up. The restrooms, showers and laundry room smell musty, due probably to a lack of ventilation. It's quiet here, though and easy to find. Owner is friendly. I got a 10% discount for cash. The small store's inventory is not kept up, although a few items are available. Low rating is due to the poor restrooms, etc. - Red Wolf Deux

Nice clean park with double wide cement slabs to create enough parking for 2 cars. We selected the park because of the picture on their website of the nice pool and spa. I called ahead of time to make sure it was open this time of year, and they said yes. However after I checked in and swiped the credit card, they said the pool/hot tub were not open. In fact I don't think its ever open as they said it costs too much for them to heat it. Would have chosen a cheaper park if I had known this. Anyway later during our stay we had to leave the rig parked there for a few days while we took a side trip, and we felt very comfortable leaving it here, no problems. You can walk to the library, and Jack-in-the Box. - sysadmin

We have stayed here several times as it is the most convenient to our former home/workplace when we come back for Doctor visits. Streets and sites are concrete with double width in the front of the site so you can park 2 vehicles. Voltage and water pressure is good. They have a convenience store with a good supply. The swimming pool is nice. The only real big negative is the sorry city streets that you have to use to get to and from the park. They are like a patchwork quilt. The owner lives on site. The rate reflects the monthly rate and electricity is on top of that. - zrxh14

This park is mostly full timers living in all kinds of trailers even one horse trailer with living quarters. Pads are small and some have a drop off on the sides and ends. A lot of working people living here so there is a lot of early morning traffic leaving and some just getting home from work. Water pressure good, power good, site was not level due to cracked concrete. All back in sites with a lot of extra vehicles sitting around. This is like a mobile home park but with all RV's. Children abound and some trailers have a lot of toys sitting around and under the trailers. If you cannot find anywhere else, a one night stay would be OK but be looking for a better RV park. I would not stay here again. Would be better off dry camping. - Jay O

Great place to stay! We enjoyed the people and the park very much! We will be back. - happy campers2

The sites have concrete pads but they are busted up a little. Kind of hard to level the RV. There was a lot of standing water and muddy behind my RV site. It was cold but I can see that if it where warmer, mosquito's would be a problem. Overall not too bad. Would stay here again. - JayOTR

I stayed in this park for two months from the end of December to the end of February, 2017. The park is 75% long term residents. The rates shown on their website only lists monthly rates. The people are very friendly, if somewhat loud at night sometimes. Manager of park is a great person, helpful and caring. Spaces are very cramped mostly. The TT next to me had slides and as a result, I could not open my awning without it being up against (literally) the side of the TT. Has concrete strips for RV parking, conrete pad for parking next to RV and small concrete pad at back of parking spot for outdoor living. This spot is up against the utilities for the unit next door. My small Honda had 18" clearance on either side from my MH and the TT next door. Road through park is too narrow for two cars to pass. Trash is a dumpster by from entrance. It is convenient to Hwy and some local shops, lots of trees and shade, fishing spot in river bend in end of park with large grassy area. Would stay here again, but only for a couple of nights, not long tern. - lankylin

Beautiful, clean, and close to town. We had been using a park much further away. This is a new park and they are still working on completing final details. I would give it a 10 if they would put tables at each site. Right now only the end sites have picnic tables. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the deck by the pool. - dcmom

We spent approximately 7 weeks in Stella Mare in a back in site. This is a new park with great potential. We will return. PROS: 1. Great location - easy access to Galveston activities 2. Park is well built with adequate electric. 3. Nice long sites. Great space between sites. Lots of pull thru sites. Space for 2 vehicles to park. 4. Friendly staff - very nice people willing to help. 5. Park kept neat & clean (aside from the occasional customer who neglects to pick up) 6. Many pet pickup stations which are maintained. (No excuse for those not picking up.) As well as a dog walk areas. 7. Trash pick-up at the site all day long. 8. Great park for walking. Walk to the beach which is just across the highway. 9. Wifi reception good thru TENGO with customers paying TENGO for the service over the free limit which is only for web browsing and Email. If you want to stream movies, and games, you will pay for it. 10. Since it is a new park, there are no trees, only new palm trees so Satellite reception is good. CONS: 1. No cable connection (yet?) so satellite is a must. You can receive a few stations from Houston using the RV antenna. 2. No picnic tables at each site. Only their Premier Sites have picnic tables. 3. Since this park is on an island which is subject to a possible hurricane or high water after big storms, the bathhouse and office are on stilts. They have a temporary office in one of the homes on the premises that can only be accessed by climbing the stairs. 4. Laundry facility is located IN the restrooms (2 washers & 2 dryers in each). Since building was on stilts, the elevator was not accessible during our stay and we had to use the stairs. 5. Sites are just off 90 degree angles - not slanted enough for large rigs to enter and leave without a bit of pre-planning. But once in, it is a great space. - PatJ3

Brand new park, stayed here for the Lonestar motorcycle rally and had a great experience at this ultra roomy big rig friendly park. Our deluxe pull thru site was 100' long and plenty of room for tow vehicles, motorcycle and guest parking not to mention our 45' bus. The entire staff are very helpful and friendly people! We would ABSOLUTELY come back to this great RV park! - Largeandy

We stayed here during July 4th. This is a great park right on the beach. The staff are super helpful and our site backed up to the ocean. We loved our time here. You are right at the beach. It was great and very relaxing. - scruggsfamilyRV

We stay here once a year. We don't use the restrooms or laundry so we can't comment on those. There are several new parks that have been built, but none are on the beach like Dellanera. Concrete pullthrus, good utilities, free wifi. No cable but satellite dish or antennae work well. The rate is for a weekly winter rate of $225. Beaches were really clean during our stay. - The Griffins

This was the 4th time I have stayed at the park. The location and convenience to the beach is great, just a short walk on a boardwalk but since the arrival of a new manager, the overall appearance and service has declined.
It rained heavily one night and the water on the drive in front of our row of rvs was 2"-3" deep. It could have been handled with a simple shovel near the drainage ditch but no one bothered.
The grass everywhere needs treated for small burrs that are very uncomfortable for your dogs and people when they are tracked in.
The restroom would be out of paper towels for 2 days at a time.
The laundry is ok but 3-4 washers were very old and rusted in places.
Used to love this place but its going downhill since the old manager left. - tulsa321

Sites are extremely close together, the sewer hookup for next site was right outside the door. The electric went out 2 days in a row and we are not notified the first day that there was a problem in the park. After excessive trouble shooting we switched to 3oamp only to have electric go out next day for 5 hours. We were comped for that day. We had an extension cord outside to a battery charger and everyday we came back it was unplugged from the outlet on the outside of our rig. Accessing the park is very difficult if not impossible when approaching from the north, it took us 20 minutes to turn around in order to get to the park. The turn onto Heard from 61st street is a super tight right turn which is impossible if other traffic is present. They do not have an onsite restaurant and bar as website states. They do not offer any type of discount. Would not stay here again. - rob4mepls

We lucked out and got a "view site" which really helped. All sites are back-in, and are close, which is no surprise in a beach town. I thought I read that they had a restaurant on site, so was disappointed when we arrived to see that it was closed, as were the two across the street. The lady at the desk was determined to be a bit of a sour-puss as she read her "rules" to me, no matter how hard I tried to cheer her up, but I don't let things like that bother me! The view was great, the sun was shining most of the time, and the location works really well to get to town! No Cable, their WiFi almost never worked, but we weren't here for that. Enjoy Galveston! - MarieB

Great location. Friendly people. There is a bench from which you may watch boats, birds, and I was told (by a winter resident) sometimes dolphins. Site has picnic table and grass. Park is pet friendly. We planned to stay 2 nights. Stayed 4. Really liked people and location. - Nakotah
