6 Parks near Galveston, Texas
Mar 2014 - $37.00
We are here in a 45ft coach with 4 slides. There is plenty of room in site 32 and its right by the water. The other sites are smaller, but not bad. Its a great park and I was pleasantly surprised after reading bad reviews online. The employees are friendly. The only complaint I have is that there is dog poop on the grassy areas, but that caused by disrespectful campers that don't pick up after their pets. It would be hard for the park to monitor and police all pet owners all the time. - Arnold4adventure

We were supposed to stay here 4 nights but checked out after one night. The sewer connection was open and about 18" above our sewer outlet so no gravity flow to drain tanks. There was an open sewer connection for the next site right outside our entry door with spilled sewage around it. The electrical box for our hookup had the ground wire dangling from the box and not connected and there were wires uncapped coming out of a conduit right next to the water connection. There was also dog feces right near our walk path to get to our door. The manager was totally unresponsive when we told him about the issues and of course refused to issue a refund. We had read some other reviews about the park but thought it couldn't be as bad as reported but found it to be worse. Don't stay at this park. - Bob_B

Sites are extremely narrow. With our slides open we were right up against the hookups for our site on that side and only had about 3 feet from our door to the next sites sewer connection. Sewer connections were open and appeared to have some spillage around them. We don't have pets but park must be pet friendly as "deposits" were in several places on our site. Site is grass and dirt. There were deep ruts due to mud when last renters were there. Due to issues with hookups and condition of site we left first thing next morning as soon as we could locate another park. Office person was unconcerned with our issues and refused to refund the remaining nights we had paid for. It was worth the money for us to move. Will not return. - Imanana2

We had a pull thru site with a long, level cement pads hookups near the middle. All sites are cement. Big rig friendly. Great water pressure. Wifi was weak. No off leash dog park. Nice fenced in playground next to office building. Laundry was next to the office. We stayed 3 days and would've stayed longer if we didn't need to be someplace else. Loved the proximity to the beach. It's often windy, there's no cover for shade and they don't allow you to put up tents or canopies on your site. They do need to trim the palm trees - the wind blows dead palm branches onto the road. Also the beach has a lot of dead seaweed. Looks a bit trashy but it's still a good walking beach. The park is well-lit at night. Office staff is wonderful. We plan to return and stay longer. - Flippitti

We stayed here for 4 days. We rode the beaches and fished, you can walk to a beach bar " woody's" in about 10 min. Nice level camping spots, friendly campers, and we cooked outside and used their grill. There is also a nice picnic table at the camping spot. We enjoyed this place. We were able to walk to the beach and surf fish. This campground is on the beach, no roads to cross. After a long 2 weeks at work, we were ready to get some fresh air, I hooked to camper, and pulled it to Galveston. We knew we could get every kind of supply in Galveston, so we just "Hooked and Booked". - 56Jeff

Great Location! We had a beach view, these are back ins, but they are easy to back in. Make sure your awing works, there is No shade! You can bring shade to the beach and hang out. Grilled out every night. Bring shade and lots of sun protection. We are schedule for a return visit in August ! We asked for site 53 again. - CJSundy

This is a newer park at the far west end of the Island. The park is built and maintained well. Long concrete, well spaced sites with with first class hook ups and wifi. Be aware that due to the location this park can be inconvenient to most anything on the island. 18 miles to the city of Galveston, 10 miles to any services. There is no easily accessible beach area being situated behind beach front property. If a very nice quiet stay is what your looking for, come prepared, this is a great place, with friendly staff. We left a day early, it was just too inconvenient for our needs, but that was due to our poor knowledge of the area. - Randoni

This park is at the far west end of Galveston Island, and as a result it doesn't stay as full as Jamaica Beach and other parks closer to the city. It's very new, with large concrete pads with patios, back in and pull-thru sites, all with full hookups including cable TV. Well maintained. Large pool and hot tub. Noise from the road can be a little bothersome at times, so recommend a site away from the road. Other than that, it was very quiet, though we were here in the wintertime; I'd guess it's much busier in the high season. - PlanoPilot

This is a wonderful campground, with very wide asphalt roads, large paved pads and patio with built in charcoal grill and wooden picnic table, nice pool and working hot tub. The hosts are great and the access to the beach is just across the road from the park. We will definitely return. We camped in a motorhome. - User1581

Spaces close together, no vegetation for screening but not a problem at all. Stayed on bay side as opposed to beach side due to windy, cold, rainy weather. Would stay here again. - donw78025

We recently stayed a week at a water/electric site on the beachside. We were in the first loop, which has a brand new bathhouse/toilet facility. (Of the three loops here, campers in the middle loop have to use the facilities in the first or third loop.) Our site was just off the path to the beach, which was nice. The sites here may be prone to flooding/standing water if the ground is already saturated from heavy rains. This happened to us one day, but the park crew were quick to come around with portable sump pumps to divert the water, so it wasn't a big problem. We would definitely stay here again. - 22Trvl

We only stayed here one night in passing and the prior reviewers have done a good job of describing it so I only have a few things to add. We stayed in the furthest bay side loop. The view of the bay is wonderful and it's probably a great place for birding, but there is NO RESTROOM there. The only one is in the other loop closer to the road and a long walk, so be prepared to use your own facilities or drive/ride to them. I hatehatehate that Texas state parks charges the extra per/day fee. Just seems like such a rip off! Just charge what you need to charge already! I sprang for the $70 "discount" card. We plan on staying in quite a few Texas SP's and it'll pay off in the end, but it still sticks in my craw. TX has a lot to learn from FL on how to run a state park! It is a really nice setting though. The other thing is that you need to check in at the office on the south side of the main road up by the beach camping spots. There is no sign to show where the bay campground is. It was kind of confusing, but just look for the state park sign on the south side of the road and go in there first. - Pdxjoanne

Price is for monthly rate. This park is very clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and competent. There are many imenities such as a spa, swimming pool, minutiar golf, exercise equipment, etc. The campsites are not right on top of each other with level concrete pads to park on. Each site has a table, palm tree, 30 or 50 amp service, water, sewer, and cable. There is a good view of the beach across the road from your camper. The roads are paved and there is plenty of room for navigation. We had no problem reaching our campsite with our 36 ft motorhome and tow. The cable works well with around 40 channels to choose from. The wifi works, but like almost all campgrounds we have stayed at, is very slow. We had a good Verizon signal, se we just used that. There is no specific dog run, but there is plenty of grass to walk your dog on. The road in front of the campground is fairly busy during the day, but slows down at night, so road noise is not a big problem. You can also hear the waves at night when you are outside, but not from inside your rig. We would stay here again. - Dale07

Great park and will return. Definitely a family friendly resort. A lot of activities for the kids. The inflatable water slides were a hit with the kids and adults. 2 pools never felt crowded. They even had a movie every night. The access road to the beach is also very close, less than a 5 min drive from site to beach. It is within walking distance, but you have to cross the main 2 lane highway. Evenings were quiet. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Sites were average size. Interior roads felt narrow, but no real issues getting into or out of our pull thru. Looking forward to returning and seeing this parks planned growth. - RobT

This place is a little gem on the beach. In fact you're so close to the beach that at night you can hear the pleasant sound of the waves in the distance through an open window.
The entire resort is smooth and level concrete with grass patches between the spots. Spots are long and wide. The staff is polite and courteous and the pool and hot tub are spectacular and maintained meticulously.
There is a motel onsite reserved for visitors to guests of the RV resort. In the main building are the showers, laundry, and a common recreation area and kitchen all of which are open and available to guests.
Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance with Galveston attractions within about a 5-10 minute drive.
We've decided to spend 2 months a year here and look forward to our next visit! - Outlaw Pilots

We have been staying at SPRVP since it opened 4 years ago, and, until this year, have always been happy with our stay. They have restrooms & a small laundry, all located up a flight of stairs. While the park is nice and convenient, close to the beach and great for walking on the Seawall. This year we were not happy for many reasons: 1) Inconsiderate staff - don't care attitude and poor excuses for every problem (see what follows). 2) We made our reservations for December in September and requested a site on the northeast side of the park. When we arrived we were placed in a site with a view of the building, a concrete wall & the highway. We requested a change but were told "We can't. You're here for a month. We never guarantee sites." We never requested a specific site, just a specific area and several of those sites were empty for the short time we were there. 3) The first night our CO2 detector went off. After checking to be sure it was not our problem, we complained to the office and requested a site change. We were told to "deal with it or leave." We opted to leave and requested our money back. We had only been there 3 days! Why did the staff not call the gas company? They did not want to! Why did they not move us - same reason. We will not be back! - PatJ3

Arrived with no reservation, no trouble getting in and had the pick of a few sites. Sites long and wide but overall a small park. Any size RV will fit in sites, even back in sites are long.
Gated park but gate not working so anyone can come in, and it is located on a road to the beach. Painting was in progress so things are looking good.
Bathrooms had only one toilet, 3 showers with no privacy, a problem for some.
All services worked good. - RDRV
