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

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

The price quoted was for a week long stay, after Mardi Gras weekend was over. This is a public campground and very well kept. Great location on the beach at the end of the sea wall. It is the ONLY RV park in Galveston directly on the Gulf of Mexico. We watched the waves and gulls from our windows. - WNC Traveler

The sites are a bit primitive and had some litter laying around (note: the park is beachside and wind always seems to be kicking stuff up, blowing it around). It would have been nice to see the owners/managers keeping the sites looking a bit nicer, but you really can't beat beachside camping. A smaller park that never filled up when we were there, so it had a nice feeling of being all our own. Not our number one choice in the area, but a great alternative that we'll return to. - 2ColliesInACan

This facility is new and has a very nice look to it, the pool is very nice and the proximity to the beach access is good. We stayed for two week days and Sat, there was definitely more traffic on the weekend. The staff were are very friendly and there is a small convenience store that is well stocked. - Texas Roper

This is a new park on Galveston Island. The sites are long and wide all concrete with grass between sites. Roads are wide making it easy to get into sites. Because of the bad weather in the area they have not yet completed construction on all amenities, but the pool is open and the other things should be done in a week or two. We would return to this park. - Dave and Jeri

This is NOT an RV Resort, if you want one, don't stop here.
If you want quiet and flat with electric enough to run the A/C, and lot of natural beauty, then this is it. It is far enough away from the bustle of the Galveston resort be be nice, but still close enough by that you can get there.
The rate is a little bit of an issue as there are two rates and neither includes the 5$/person day use fee.
We stayed two nights, one on the bay side (20$) and one on the gulf side (25$). Sites 66 and 33 (yeah, really).
On the bay side, there is a table and a fire/grill, the gulf side also includes a patio with shelter, seems more for rain than sun. - Matt_C

We camped on the bay side, wetlands right out the window. Saw my first trip-colored heron, reddish egret. Level spaces, no privacy but enough space between your neighbor. Great trails. Bring bug spray! Friendly staff. TX parks require the addt'l per person, per day fee, so consider an annual pass. - mac2school

There are beach side or bay side sites. Beach side was full, so I got bay side site, which I was thankful for. Beach side was very cold and windy, everyone checked out of the beach side the next day, due to weather. Sunset was beautiful. The view from my site was no less than spectacular! Sites on bay side were all back in, but real easy to back into. I saw blue heron, egrets and ibis' every time I looked out. Staff were very nice and helpful. Needed brochures for local events and activities would have been nice. No sewer hook up. They did have a dump station though. Had 30/50 amp service. Great place to stay, I would recommend it to everyone. - PurplePassion

Will will return again. - ckwizard4224

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 is a nice RV park about 15 minutes down from Galveston. The owners and staff are all very friendly and accommodating. I really appreciate their efforts to make things so family friendly (pools, splash pad, miniature golf, outdoor movie nights, etc.). Bring the bikes or scooters for the kids---they will use them!
Please note that the park is across San Luis Pass Rd from the beach rather than directly "on" the beach, but you can cross the road on foot and be at the beach in just a few minutes. Even better, you can hop in the car with all of your beach stuff, drive over in less than 2 minutes, and park right by the water (for free). This is very convenient with kids!
The inflatables did not seem to be in operation while we were there, several advertised cable channels were inoperable, and most importantly, neither of us could get the WiFi to work despite trying numerous times. We could connect to the hotspot, but web pages would never load (on computers or smart phones). Thankfully, our AT&T phones had good LTE connections.
The office sells a surprisingly wide assortment of RV and beach items at fair prices which is appreciated. They operate a Hunt Bros Pizza in the main office which is convenient for families when you need it.
Overall, we had a great time and would certainly return for a more extended stay next time! - texasAUtiger

We were here for 10 days while I visited customers in Houston. The wife and little dog enjoyed the day while I was out.
Spacious concrete pads with sitting and picnic table area. Thick grass and palm trees cover open areas (there is no dirt or gravel). Campground has a security fence around it and electric gates in and out. I think this tends to keep any casual traffic out.
It is about a 200yd walk to the beach where you can rent umbrellas etc.
The location is right off Seawall Blvd and you can drive down to Pleasure Pier within a few minutes - much to do there and you can explore "Old Galveston"
We cooked fresh seafood at our campground and met many nice people.
As always the WIFI was weak but, we made do. We'll be back here for sure next year.

I thought Sandpiper is an exceptionally nice RV park. It is very clean and well-maintained, and the concrete sites are level with adequate space between spots. The hookups are nice and clean, and well-located. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We didn't swim at the pool, but I walked up and checked it out, and it looks very nice. They also have overflow hotel rooms that are only used if RV guests need extra room for their visitors, which is nice if you need it.
I thought the location relative to the beach was perfect. It is a very short walk to Stewart Beach, yet it is just far enough away that you won't get tons of sand all over your rig. It's also in a great location to get to Pleasure Pier and all the tourist stuff that is located along Seawall Blvd.
I will definitely stay here again any time I return to Galveston. - RedRaider1993

Great park. Right on the beach. Concrete pads includes concrete pad for picnic table. Very spacious sites. We had a pull-through althought the backins also looked spacious. Shower rooms were clean but showers did not have privacy, shower curtains but no other privacy in the bathroom. Laundry room was small (only 2 washers/dryers) but commercial grade so it went fast. They were very reasonable. We'd come back here in a minute. - chopper989
