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. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Very nice park even though there are no trees. Plenty of space between sites. Walk to the beach. WiFi works, but slow. Stayed 3 days and will return. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Real nice RV park, paved roads and parking. Picnic table with roof and cement floor, bbq grill. Clean restrooms, but need updating. Green lawn all around. 100 ft from beach with board walk to water. Wi-fi at park but didn't use. Three large areas to camp and large picnic area. Be glad to return. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
