We stayed 4 nights. It was great. No shade, but we had an awning. Walked to the beach. Could see the water from our space. Very clean and well kept park except it needed mowing when we were there. Nice cement slabs, good parking for tow vehicle. The WiFi was excellent but the TV reception, even with cable, was poor. The bathrooms were not very accessible (upstairs), but the pool/hot tub was over the top. The water was heated every few minutes in the hot tub and the pool was beautiful. Would stay here again. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean park, as close to the beach as possible. You can see the waves breaking from your RV window. Some sites don't have a view but most do. The sites are level with full concrete pads. Very clean functional hookups, and the Wi-Fi is spectacular. The pool and hot tub area is worthy of calling this a resort. Park is far enough from the touristy stuff but still right on Stewart Beach. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. You can walk to the beach, but it's far enough not to get sand in your RV. It's close to "the strip", and many great places to eat. The Stop, and Big Daddy's Gumbo on Post Office street had great food. We really enjoyed this park and will go back. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

All cement sites and roads and GREAT Wi-Fi! I thought we had found the perfect 10 park on the beach, but alas, some failings. They have a push button system in the showers so the water shuts off every 60 seconds. I would rather pay into a machine than that. At least you get water for 5 minutes! One of the showers I could not get hot water so had to switch. I didn't find the staff particularly friendly. The other drawback is that we weren't able to enjoy the pool hot tub area two of the evenings. The first evening a couple of families from the area came . And the 2nd night, the park I assume had let the girls softball team have a party. I think they should have told us. When I asked the next day, front office guy said he didn't know anything about it. When we checked in, we were given a bunch of codes to "prevent the local KIDS from using the pool in the evening" there is no code for the pool gate and the locals know it. Someone is around in the evening because they shut the gates at 10 and turn off the music. I think they look the other way or those people are their friends. Very off putting. Now that we have done the touristy history stuff of Galveston, we would go to the other end of the island in the future. This place does have the best location. Access to beach wonderful. And like I said one of the strongest consistent Wi-Fi we have experienced. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We had one of the closest sites to the beach. Though not right on the beach it was a good view. This park is a little away from the "touristy" part of Galveston which we were fine with. 2 1/2 mile walk to Pleasure Pier. The sites were level and the park was clean. Nice pool and hot tub. Staff was friendly. We were arriving a little after they closed and they called to tell me all the info I needed for arrival and our stay. We stayed for 2 nights. We would stay here again.

Sandpiper is a Great RV Resort. The staff was helpful when asked about local information. We stayed over the Easter weekend so the $$ was a little higher for those 3 days. Perfect access to Stewart Beach. Even though the beach was very busy over the holiday - did not seem to notice the traffic or noise in the resort. Pool area is a really nice asset. For us security was not a concern. I love Galveston and now Sandpiper Resort will be our place to stay when we vacation there. Highly recommend! We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this place. Walking distance to Stewart Beach. Close to all attractions. We had a back in that was plenty wide and easy to get in. All concrete pads and roads. Very pretty pool and jacuzzi. Only 2 washer and dryers, but I had no problem with availability. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this park! Location is perfect, close to everything but the park is still and peaceful. Sites are paved and level. Hookups are well placed and maintained. Staff was very helpful. Will certainly stay here again We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

There is a common thread in a lot of the reviews for this CG about the staff being rude and uncaring but we have stayed here 3 times now and have never found that to be the case, quite the opposite in fact. We made last minute reservations and were assigned to the highway sites above the fenced in sites but asked them to please move us to a fenced site if someone cancelled. The man called me about 8 hours later and said he moved us so when we came in we could just pull into our site and gave us the #. Everything worked well and site was level. We enjoyed the hot tub immensely and also the close proximity to everything, our suggestion is to bring a bike so you can take a ride down the seawall. We will camp here again.

Nice location close to beach. Desk staff acted like he didn't want to be there; we had to pry info out of him. They put us on the street/sidewalk outside the park, twenty feet from the street (Seawall St). Lots of foot traffic. We had to lock everything up and listen to racing diesel pickups and motorcycles all night. Then there's the large security lights that shine into your coach all night; no sleep. After two days we were able to move into the main park. Level concrete pads, good utilities, and beautiful views of the beach. The park was clean, and well groomed. The security gates were left open all night and were used for short cuts by non-guests. When you make reservations ask if they are putting you on the street/seawall. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park because you have direct beach access, and it was a fairly new park. It is big-rig friendly, and the entire park is concrete with small islands of grass between sites. The park was clean and well kept. I am sure it could get loud; however, we stayed here during the week when school was in session. The staff was friendly and offered assistance or information.

The park is great with many amenities. Very pricey. The management staff is adequate. You cannot specify what site you want, they will give you the one that is available. You may get one out in the main highway. The staff gives the impression that the owner could rent out your spot if you decide not to take what they give. This is not a very positive attitude to have if you want repeat customers. I will not be returning. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

All amenities of the park are adequate and in very good condition, as this park has just opened fall of 2011. Be advised that this is first come first served. Be sure to book at least one month in advance. If there is a means of being able to reserve a specific spot, that should be made available if at all possible.

This RV park was apparently destroyed in 2008 by Hurricane Ike, and has been completely re-built. Nice level spots, but no shade, and little privacy from your neighbors. Great location - you can be walking on the beach in three minutes. Wi-Fi speed was very slow and cable TV selection poor. They advertise security but, in the two nights we stayed there, the sliding gates were left open. Still, a nice park and close to the city center and ocean.

Last year the owners of this park did everything right. They created a first class facility at a great location. Something has gone wrong. The Handy-man/care-taker is gone. The dumpster is gone. They installed fencing around the park, but the gates stand open 24/7. Any landscaping that dies is not replaced. There are only 20 cable channels, and the Wi-Fi is spotty at best. The fees continue to climb at an alarming rate. When you check in the clerk will take your money and assign a site. They will give you a sheet of 65 rules and warnings. You will never see the staff again. Weeds have overtaken the sod. The doggy receptacles over-flow. Site assignment defies logic. When we were there, pop-up campers and mini-trailers were in the big pull-through sites while large fifth wheels and coaches struggled to back into the smaller perimeter sites. Those of us who camp more than 200 nights per year can tell when the owners are not involved in the running of a park. If the owners would make an effort to learn what their customers need, this would be an outstanding resort. Instead, this park is quickly sliding into mediocrity. The "7" is for facility and location, not for hospitality. There is none. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.
