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
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 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
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
I called from the road and the ladies were very kind and found us a site for 10d ays with a great attitude. Upon arrival and after setting up, we walked down to the beach and it was horrid with seaweed. Now, this is no fault of the RV park, so we toughed it out. Apparently this has been an ongoing problem for the whole city since April, and it is really smelly! We did not get any beach time, and coming from CO that was disappointing! They do try and move it around, but it is still there. We did enjoy the city attractions, movies about the city, shopping, walking the Strand, Pleasure Pier, and delicious restaurant foods. We even brought some shrimp home with us frozen....for this winter in CO. The staff was friendly and kind, the park was clean, laundry was inexpensive (($1.25 wash, $.75 dry) and everyone there we met was friendly. Overall I would return, but will check in advance next time to assess the beaches. I suspect this park is amazing when the seaweed is not visiting! I would return. - bbkidznurs
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
My understanding was that the sites were right on the beach, but they were not. They were certainly within walking distance (over a bridge over some dunes), but they were not "on" the beach. Make sure that you bring LOTS of bug spray, as the mosquitos were horrible. The inner loop sites have the picnic tables on the back side of the rig, while the outer loop sites have them right out the door, so consider that when choosing a site. Restrooms were fairly clean, but there was a line for the showers in the evenings, since there are no sewer hookups and most everyone wants to conserve the space in their tanks. There was also a line at the dump station when we got ready to leave, so keep that in mind when deciding what time to load up. Overall a nice enough stay, but next time we will look for a place with full hookups. - a.molander
Nice location right at the beach with spacious sites. You could not be closer to the beach. This is what we like about the park. There are also nice hiking paths on the other side towards the bay. Clean rest rooms and very friendly and helpful stuff. However they need to improve the fire sites. Not all sites have grills anymore and the fire pits cannot be used for grilling since they don't have grids. Also some of these pits are are 1' to 2' deep. Watch your little children. Another weird thing: The shelters are on the left side of the parking strips. But since we have small popup trailer I always turn the trailer 180 degrees with the tongue facing in. This is very easy since the sites are level. I just prefer my door and awning facing the campsite. And bring your own fire wood. The park ranger do not sell wood. The camp hosts sometimes do have wood. But not always. I also could not find any wood in the stores close by. - Texcamp
Very nice park, clean and easy access. We stayed in the bay side camping area and loved it. The campsites are arranged in a wagon spoke but angled so each RV is positioned so the view at the rear of the campsite is past the back side of your neighbors RV. We are in a motorhome so we pulled in so the view out our window was looking out over the water and all the birds feeding. It was cold and rainy for the 4 days we were here so it was great being inside watching the birds from our windows. - A-S_Travels
Stayed at the bayside area. Good power and water pressure. Get in your space before dark as there are no lights whatsoever in this area. Site was level and firm. No savings here as you can stay in town for $3 more, and have Wi-Fi/cable TV. Bugs are a problem so have spray with you. Clean park. - Jay O
Rate reflects using discounts offered by Texas State Park pass. Rate is $25 per day on beach side. This is a great state park located just east of Jamaica Beach on the island of Galveston. There is not sewer at the sites, but a dump station is conveniently located at the beginning of the camping loops. On the beach side, there are three different loops with about 12 spaces each loop. The first and third loop have restrooms and showers, the 2nd loop, only a portapotty. All have beach access. The park and beach is kept clean by both staff and camp hosts. Staff here are friendly and don’t hesitate to smile and wave; they are knowledable about the park and the island and can answer any questions you have. The visitors center is very nice, staff friendly and informative. There is no wifi offered by the park but our Verizon wifi card got 4G from Galveston. There are two sides, beach and bay. The bayside loops are a little closer together. We stayed on the beach side; all sites were generously spaced and have 30/50Amp and water. Power was 124V and steady, water pressure good. They have covered picnic tables, all sites are orientated to the western sun, making the afternoons a little warm without a shade cloth of some type. The park police are very visible and appear to enforce the park rules consistently. The beach is accessible with a short walk thru a dune trail. Beach was clean while we were here. We didn’t use the bathhouse, however it did appear clean from a brief visual inspection. We would not hesitate to stay here next time on the island. - Fixn2gocamp
The rate reflects a monthly of $585. This park is wonderful. It must be a blast in the summer when you can use the pool and play miniature golf. A gorgeous, pristine beach is right across the street. The office staff was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. You can order pizza or wings and they make it right there. The park is very clean and well maintained. We stayed for a month and would definitely stay here again. - blz
This is an exceptional destination park. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Probably more of a summer park than winter as a lot of the things to do here were either closed or not comfortable to do this time of year but they have one of the best hot spas I have ever seen.
Restroom and showers are very clean but the one near our space had very little hot water.
East access to the beach and the roadway has bike trails.
It is several miles to Galveston but the town is so well laid out that finding where you are going is very easy.
The RV park offers, ALL pullthru sites, breakfast on Wed morning followed by shopping with Dora. Free movie rentals, a small RV store, two swimming pools, (one for adults only) hot spa, laundry, miniature gulf, work out room and much more. - digger2280
We stayed in this park for 6 weeks and loved every minute. This is an exceptionally well managed park. The owners live on site. The staff work all day every day around the park and are very very friendly. Man guests have been wintering here for many years. Even though many folks had long term relationships with each other, they welcomed newcomers warmly. There were many events every week such as breakfast every Saturday morning, games night on Thursdays and pot luck dinner every week. The park is beautifully landscaped and RV spaces are large and level with concrete pads surrounded by grass. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi and cellphone coverage. Entry into the park is very easy and streets within the park are wide and easy to maneuver. We were in a 43 ft. 5th wheel pulled by an long extended cab, long bed Ford 350 dually pickup.
Beautiful beach is right across the road. We cannot say enough nice about this park and its management. We will definitely return. - JanneC
Sites are level and all concrete. Water pressure, power, good. Cable TV does not have many channels but useable. Good security at night with the gates being closed; a code will open them if you need to get out late. Park is clean and well kept. Would definitely stay here again. Call ahead well in advance for reservations as a lot of the RV's stay for extended stays. Park is small so not many spaces in total. - Jay O
Didn't get Good Sam discount. Pricey but if you want on the gulf, you have to pay it. Big sites, concrete paved, decent wifi and utilities. - padre44
We found this park to be a nice place to stay in visiting Galveston area. It is close to the city but quieter than the main seawall area. All the services worked fine. The spaces are nicely spaced and large with a patios and tables. The roads are very wide making backing in easy. There are both back in and pull through sites. The park is well maintained with a nice pool setting. The gulf is a easy to walk to from the park. We would stay again when in the area. - JDR
