5 Parks near Crystal Beach, Texas
Feb 2016 - $22.00
Rate reflects off-season rate of $150/week. Nice small park, with a couple of long-term residents. Off season was quiet. While we were there they upgraded the WiFi and it is blazingly fast (>30 mbps on speed test).
Nothing special, just a cheap place to stay. Close but not on the beach. A little road noise from Rt 87. No cable, but the Houston stations came in OTA. - jplante4

This place is great if you want a quite place to stay within walking distance of the beach. Two open dog areas (not fenced) We stayed for a week for $150.00. It is small and quiet with nice neighbors. There is a bar and restaurant across the street that's really convenient. Good enough wifi, not the best and only 1 channel. It's an all day everyday crime channel (Forensic files, Unsolved Mysteries, Snapped) I thought it was pretty funny, my husband begged to differ ;) I would definitely stay here again. The only real downside, and no fault of the park, is the mosquitos are OUT OF CONTROL! They are monsters that get through your clothes, so just come prepared with a lot of OFF. Also, the management was proactive with it and sprayed weekly, so they do try to keep it at bay. - gypsy_tic

Rate reflects weekly rate. Great find on the Port Bolivar Peninsula. Less crowded and congested than Galveston, slower pace. Nice RV park, better spaced than most "beach" parks. We had a pull thru, would probably opt for a back in next time, they seem to have a little more room. Very level concrete sites. Picnic table at each site. Manager/host is very friendly and goes out of his way to accommodate his guests. Not an onsite 24hr host,but we never had trouble reaching him by phone or catching him in the office. Park fuller on weekends, but stayed quiet. They also rent RVs here. There were no "derelict" or junky trailers. Everything was clean and neat. Full Hookup sites with new pedestals. Electric steady at 119v, water pressure was 90, we used a 55psi regulator. Park is not directly on the beach, sea spray not an issue, 3 blocks to beach thru quiet neighborhood. Lots of room to ride bikes and walk. Park has two washer/dryers, reasonably priced at $1.25 and a shower which we didn't use but appeared clean. However, there were no toilet facilities that we saw. Beaches were very clean. Couple of great eateries, Steve's Landing and Stingaree's both on the bay side. The Gulf Coast Grocery store aka The Big Store is a must see,amazing place. Very friendly town to RV'ers. We will stay here again when in the area. - Fixn2gocamp

Very nice large RV resort. All new in 2009. Gravel roads with level and wide grass or gravel pads, no trees. Very quiet. All the sites are long and wide with FHU. 5 bars Verizon cell signal and 4G mobile hot spot, good satellite and tv antenna signal, no cable tv, free protected weak Wi-Fi. Clean laundry, restrooms and pay showers. Office staff very friendly and helpful. Park very clean. The PA sites are up front, pay a couple dollars extra and park in the back by the pond. We will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

Great place right across the road from the beach. Management was very nice. The pond makes a beautiful place to watch the sun come up. They also allow crabbing so the kids had a great time with that. We stay here almost every summer from 1-3 months. The roads are dirt/gravel and can be rough, but wide and not hard to navigate. The sites are large. The constant ocean breeze keeps temperatures wonderful, but do be careful with your awning as winds can pick up quickly (we never left ours out when we left the park). - Jackson-6

We enjoyed our 2 day stay while visiting Galveston. This is a very large campground with long term residents who where very nice. There were a couple things that we didn't care for the mosquitoes was one and the other was the water pressure which was very low. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again. - paparoach

I stayed here for 3 days in August 2012. Campground was very nice- had a picnic table and slab for each site. Full hookups, nicely landscaped. I booked ahead for a prime spot on the water and actually got to camp there. (I usually get bumped to smaller RV spots at other places because I have a small camper.) I felt safe there; fishing was great. The road out goes straight across the highway and down to the beach. Will stay here again. Did not have any problems. Management had high visibility around park. - BeccaLee

No discounts were available. There are no toilets, showers, or laundry since hurricane Ike. Park is run down and maintenance is non-existent. Pot holes serve as speed bumps but fill up when it rains creating hazards of unknown depth. The doors have rusted and fallen off the electrical boxes. The dumpster sits open attracting scavengers because fish offal is put in it. Grassy sites w/ concrete pads are wide enough and a picnic table is attached. A concrete walkway make fishing around the perimeter possible but puts the people fishing right at the back of your RV. There's a boat launch. Security must be an issue since there is excessive lighting everywhere. We would not return. - L. Allen

We've camped here often over the past 8 years. It has always been a great host and a clean site. Very friendly campers, few distractions, awesome views of the intercoastal waterway and watching tug boats go by. We visit at least four times per year and always stay at Crystal Canal. It is close enough to the beach, the store, gas station, liquor store, and even the ferry ride to Galveston is an adventure. - Cap

.This park has 68 sites not 37. Has a nice pool that many people were enjoying. This park are all back ins that give you a view of a small pond or a canal. Small kayaks are provided for youth to use. Has a playground. Sites are huge. Depth close to 150 feet and widths very wide so you are away from your neighbors sewer. Some sewer hook ups were at ground level some were high enough so one would have to lift the hose to drain.
Staff is very friendly almost to a fault. Cable and WiFi are advertised but when I asked about WiFi they smiled and said it was only available at office, WiFi provided has no password but the campground also has secured WiFi but you are not given a password. There are lights at each power pedestal which is a nice touch. My site and the one next to me had burnt out bulbs. I was told that it was O.K. to rob a bulb from another site. I could not get the bulb covers off to replace a bulb. There is some overhead lighting but it is dark at night. Cable-Advertised but we had continuing problems with it dropping off line to the point that it was useless. Cable was out for the entire row of 20 campers. The owner came over and replaced the cable connection on the post. We had cable for several hours. When I told them the cable was out again they smiled and said they would attend to it. No one showed up and when I again brought up the cable they said :"Maybe we should call the cable company." The site next to me was occupied by a permanent resident who was very nice. She said the cable had been out almost 2 weeks.
Park was well kept and clean. Permanent resident site were clean and tidy.
Rates are $40./night with NO discounts. They gave me the weekly rate of $235.00 as we were staying 6 nights. - Tigggerdad

No cement pads. No cable tv. The WiFi did not work anywhere in the park--including the club house. It still was a really fun park. They were catching crabs in the tidal pools that circled the center of the park. There were kayaks to use. We were with in a quarter mile from the beach. There was a golf course near by. There was lots to do and many good places to eat We would definitely stay here again! Make sure you bring lots of mosquito repellent! We went through 2 full cans. - lundgka

Actually we did not camp here, we were unfortunately down the street. We drove thru this camp site and was really impressed. Smooth roads, nicely cut grass, no ants, satellite available, they had a swimming pool and play ground for kids. Will definitely stay here next time. - KandKGetaway
