We stayed a week while we did some sightseeing in Galveston. Over all a very nice place. net, well ordered pleasant helpful staff. The pool was cold but the hotter was great. There is a hotel attached to the complex so it is great place for RVers to stay with family. The cable was fine and internet worked so so. You have to change which one you are logged into. We could see the breakers from our windows. We had a huge cement wide pad. Easy on and easy off and a lot of staff always around working and cleaning. 16 block walk to historical downtown and a short walk to the seawall and beach. We slept to the sounds of the ocean. The only down side was there is a green ditch full of water just beyond the fence and at night the mosquitos were horrific. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here during the Christmas week of 2016. As a result, there were no discounts and the price was as high as it was. Not a bad place to stay with wide, flat, level cement pads that are wide enough to have more than one tow vehicle. Close to the attractions in Galveston, and easy to get to from I-45. Staff keeps the place clean. Problems Wifi is in need of some tweaking as it's slow at times so it's necessary to shift from one antenna to another often, and the lounge is on the same system rather than a direct line to the wifi router. There is a mosquito presence which kept us from going out as much as we'd like, and provided us with several bites. While we were here, the humidity was high; so much so that there was fog quite often during both the day and night. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is in a great location - short walk to the beach. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The facilities are in need of some paint and TLC, but overall a nice park. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is not a huge park but its very nicely laid out with pull throughs and back ins. Its close to beach and also close to the downtown stores and restaurants. It was very quite during the week but got full come the weekend. I wanted to use the pool, it looked really nice but ran out of time. This is a nice clean facility.

Advice when leaving. Take the side street to the traffic light about 300yards to the north its a better way to get to the main drag.

This beachside Park is set up well for big rigs, with wide, level concrete pull through spots. From many sites, you can see the beach and the ships at anchor in the Gulf of Mexico. A very nice pool and hot tub and you can walk right from the resort to the beach. Have been here before, and will keep coming back! We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Pool is EXCELLENT and the hot tub actually works. Fire pit is available. Huge lots with plenty of room. Great sunrises. Very clean. They have additional guest quarters for visitors, if you get any. They have good Wifi. The lots have grass and palm trees. We would definitely stay again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Although a small park, the concrete sites are long, spacious, and level. And very clean, well manicured. Being near the beach, there's no trees other than a few palm trees. Full hookups at all sites, including cable TV. Close proximity to Houston meant good cell coverage and off-air antenna. Nice pool/hot tub area, although I didn't use it. The restrooms were clean and spacious. The showers were more like beach showers - no pressure, and you had to push a button every 30 seconds to activate it. The shower in the RV was better. Easy 500-ft walk to the beach or the seawall without crossing the road. Excellent location for being a tourist, you could even walk to several restaurants if you wanted. Very windy because of the nearby beach. Pet-friendly, but no separate dog area (really not needed with the beach right there). Staff was friendly, but we didn't have much interaction with them. Did not test the WiFi. Road noise not an issue. We will definitely stay again. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Sites #32 - #40 are directly on Seawall Blvd with no fencing. Would not recommend these sites if you have kids or pets. Also sitting outside right on the side of the road might not be much fun either.

The short walk to the beach at sunrise is well worth getting up early! Also, be sure to check the high/low tide chart, as some of the beach is underwater at high tide.

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.
