6 Parks near Galveston, Texas

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

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 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

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

Fairly nice park, but only 4 individual combination restrooms and showers for a fairly large park, and I don't think they were all operational during our stay, although they were very clean. Beach access was not that convenient, and the Gulf is obscured by a row of private homes. We were put in Site 40, which is near a fairly busy road. The park sites are spacious. - Alicenpete

Its a new park in the area, the sites are well laid out. All the sites are full hook up and are on a nice concrete pad. When I called to see if they had an opening for a month I was told the rate would be $550.00 for the time we would be there. The lady on the phone did not say anything about an additional charge for electric nor does it show it thing on their web site. The day before we left, a guy came down and read the ELECTRIC METERS and about an hour later we got an email that we had been billed for electric for the month. The next day we had anther email from them for less than a dollar for electric for the last night we where there, like a dollar will break them. WE WILL NOT BE BACK!! - alleycat

The park here is structurally RV friendly with spacious concrete pads and grass in between spaces. There is a pool that is not heated and a hot tub. The laundry facilities include four washers and dryers which are poor. Your clothes do not get clean for 1.50 per load and the dryers do not completely dry everything.
The small office has a small store with expensive prices.
The park advertises that they have a "bark park" which us non-existent. In fact your dogs are not allowed to bark as evidenced by management calling me and stating that I left my dogs unattended and the neighbor complained of them barking. My brother was there in our coach but the woman staff member would not allow me to explain. She rudely stated that they were my brothers dogs and that I was responsible. She stated that I needed to close my windows and shades and turn on the fan or we could be asked to vacate the premises. As dogs play in their home to ask that they never bark or bark at other dogs they see is asinine. With the threat of eviction at our door its hard to enjoy our stay. The owner of the park stated to my husband who is a disabled veteran that they take care of their veterans. The bathrooms are not cleaned on a regular basis and are often dirty. This is not a pet friendly park. - ksmock

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

"Faded glory". This park looks like it used to be great, but hasn't had any maintenance in a long time. There is a mini-golf course with pirate statues and sharks and such amusing things, but some of the arms are broken off of the pirates, and the paint is peeling. There is a huge hot tub, but there are piles of dirt on the bottom of it. Even the "spa" signs are broken. The adult swimming pool looks promising until you look closely - broken concrete, dirt covering the bottom. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly, the sites are nice. They have a couple hundred movie DVDs available to be borrowed by campers, sort of like a library. WiFi was so-so, which is better than most parks we've been to. I suspect (and hope) that the maintenance issues will be taken care of for the summer (high) season. - Neil_and_Sandy

This park is located in the Jamaica Beach area of Galveston Island, about 15 miles from the heart of the town of Galveston. It is across the road from a nice stretch of beach. There are concrete driveways and site pads, picnic tables, full hookups, laundry and cable. The sites are reasonably sized. The WiFi is a bit unpredictable. It took us a couple of days to figure out which of the wireless networks gave the best results. They have two pools plus an indoor spa. Service is good and they have a large selection of DVDs that they loan out at no cost. - Coopsecondact

We have stayed at Jamaica Beach RV for the past four years, each time for 2-3 nights while visiting friends in Galveston. Each year we have noticed improvements: office expansion, spa addition, more RV sites being added. The resort is family-run and friendly. There is a nice duck pond on the grounds, mini-golf, swimming pool (looks great but unheated). We had a site on the south end of the park which was nice but the back road entrance and corners make it tight to turn a big rig. We enjoy staying here and would return. - gbburgess

This is a very nice park, walking distance to the beach. Very clean, nice pool tho we didn't swim. Laundry room was fine. The pads are nicely spaced and fairly large, level concrete. Water, power and sewer were all good. Wifi was good when the park was 25% full, at 75% it became dicey. Access is easy from the Seawall Blvd just after the Broadway intersection. A bit $$$ but location is great - I guess you get what you pay for. - RedHorse1

Sites are close, but this goes with closeness to the beach. Park was full; rigs come and go, but full. 43 sites, mostly back in, but some pull thrus. Expensive, but we would stay again.
Lot spacing was nearby with sunny/open exposure. Site surface was a concrete pad and featured a picnic table. - 1coloradan

The park is located near the beach. It is very convenient to activities along the seawall. They have both back ins and pull trough's. The sites are long and spaced ok. The sites are all cement and grass between. We like this park because of the location and it is easy to back into most of the sites. They do have some sites on the upper level that are not as level as the ones below. It is an easy walk to the beach. - JDR
