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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

It's Galveston, Gaido's and Benno's are our go-to places. Fishtails, big, popular, we weren't impressed.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit historic mansions; take walking tours. Galveston is an interesting place and seafood is great.

This place is a little gem on the beach. In fact you're so close to the beach that at night you can hear the pleasant sound of the waves in the distance through an open window.

The entire resort is smooth and level concrete with grass patches between the spots. Spots are long and wide. The staff is polite and courteous and the pool and hot tub are spectacular and maintained meticulously.

There is a motel onsite reserved for visitors to guests of the RV resort. In the main building are the showers, laundry, and a common recreation area and kitchen all of which are open and available to guests.

Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance with Galveston attractions within about a 5-10 minute drive.

We've decided to spend 2 months a year here and look forward to our next visit! We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Mario's Italian restaurant is within walking distance and is incredible. Their lunch buffet for $9.99 can't be beat. For pizza and wings delivery try Papa's Pizza. Check out Yelp, Zomato, or Tripadvisor for our full reviews of local restaurants.

We have been staying at SPRVP since it opened 4 years ago, and, until this year, have always been happy with our stay. They have restrooms & a small laundry, all located up a flight of stairs. While the park is nice and convenient, close to the beach and great for walking on the Seawall. This year we were not happy for many reasons: 1) Inconsiderate staff - don't care attitude and poor excuses for every problem (see what follows). 2) We made our reservations for December in September and requested a site on the northeast side of the park. When we arrived we were placed in a site with a view of the building, a concrete wall & the highway. We requested a change but were told "We can't. You're here for a month. We never guarantee sites." We never requested a specific site, just a specific area and several of those sites were empty for the short time we were there. 3) The first night our CO2 detector went off. After checking to be sure it was not our problem, we complained to the office and requested a site change. We were told to "deal with it or leave." We opted to leave and requested our money back. We had only been there 3 days! Why did the staff not call the gas company? They did not want to! Why did they not move us - same reason. We will not be back! We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrived with no reservation, no trouble getting in and had the pick of a few sites. Sites long and wide but overall a small park. Any size RV will fit in sites, even back in sites are long.

Gated park but gate not working so anyone can come in, and it is located on a road to the beach. Painting was in progress so things are looking good.

Bathrooms had only one toilet, 3 showers with no privacy, a problem for some.

All services worked good. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is located on the beach side so convenient for walking. Location, location, location.

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.
DON'T FORGET MOSQUITO SPRAY - THEY WILL "TOTE" YOU OFF (only negative) We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The resort was very clean and all employees very friendly. The short walk to the beach was nice. Since our last stay we have attempted to stay there two more times but no spots were available. I would recommend to call early. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Right on the beach. Great food nearby.

We've stayed in some nice places before, but with our trailer we usually don't stop at the cement-paved road and parking pad campgrounds. Our site was perfectly level. The concrete was spotless. The green grass was without a weed and was immaculately manicured, and rather wide. Everyone was quiet, the other campers were really kind when I needed to use the (rather ordinary) laundry room after hours. The heated pool had an infinity edge overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The hot tub was pleasantly warm.

Located a bit away from road called Seawall, we took short drives into town. We did not notice any road noise. Walking out the side gates, we walked down the access road and onto the beach. Walking on the sandy beach along the Gulf to the East Point was a wonderful 7 mile round trip.

$50.00 per night weekdays. $60.00 per night Friday & Saturday. Ask about lower costs for staying longer.

My Verizon coverage was very good.

In a word the place was perfect. It was a fun place to stay for a few days.

We would return. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
