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.

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.

Overall one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at. If you like Galveston this would be my top pick. Nice pool and hot tub and great access to beach and historical parts of the city. 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.

We loved this place! Stayed three weeks with 4 kids, and it is right on the beach. Bathrooms and showers were adequate, and I saw them being cleaned often. Staff friendly, but a word of caution: don't bother mailing anything with them. Our letter sat on the counter for 3 days before I finally took it back (just mailed it myself.) For the location, this place was awesome! We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Can't beat this one for being so close to the beach!

We stayed for 2 months at $575 per month on site 5. Very nice place with concrete level sites with patios and picnic tables. Nice infinity pool, but the weather was not good for swimming. Nice view of the Gulf from our site. We ended up with a bad neighbor but that was not the park's fault. Great location on Seawall Blvd with plenty to see and do. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
