Grumpy uninformative check in person. All was quiet until the Mardi Gras people arrived. Then loud music, trucks and kids. Dogs running loose. Roaring, gas fed wood fire near our slide. Roads just outside camp ground flooded. Not their fault. Forget the wifi. It keeps dropping out. Level concrete site. Gates all open. For the price we paid for a "resort" it was very disappointing. Lots of rules but no one enforced them. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Sandpiper for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We walked along the beach every morning and evening with our dog. The park is by far the most convenient to the beach, shops, and restaurants on Galveston Island. We had a back-in site but had water views as long as nobody was parked next to us. We will stay here again next time we are in Texas. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here a few times and I've reviewed this park before but am adding another review. This is a great location and the price reflects that. However, for that price I'd like the internet to work and the dumpster is overflowing. The park was full for the weekend but it's now Monday afternoon and the park is less than 25% occupied and the park internet is still down. The pads are concrete, long and level. The utilities were all good. The cable service is only fair. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

very clean, well cared for park. it looks pretty new and they have wonderful facilities for plugging in. it was a breeze to get in and out. i was in a nice wide pull thru with plenty of room to spare. the pool and spa were terrific! you're a block from the beach...an ez walk. not far from the old downtown/tourist areas. i would absolutely come back here to stay.

Nice grassy areas between sites. Sites are level. Just behind the park is the beach, its easy walking. I would not get the sites on top next to the road. They are noisy with a lot of traffic. We will visit there again. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Check in went fine, got a nice site (9) but it had a weak 50 amp breaker. I walked over to one of the employees and explained my problem and he took me right up to the office and got me a different site with no hassles at all. both employees were helpful and apologetic about the problem and couldnt be more helpful. It was a nice experience. Wish we could have stayed longer. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 3 nights over Memorial Day weekend. Site was good. Management NOT good at enforcing rules or doing a drive around to check on things. Our trashy neighbors had 2 dogs tied to the fence & very rarely at the site until evening. Took 2 phone calls to management to have owners do something about constant dogs barking. Got somewhat better but not good. Rules say 10 persons per campsite. At times they had at least 15-20 people. Swimming pool OK but our neighbors pretty much took it over & they enjoyed their LOUD boom box music. The one pool bathroom was absolutely disgusting. Other issues but enough said. You would think that they would have more staff on the grounds for a busy weekend. Not here, 1 girl in the office. This is not a place I would stay at again.

This is a very nice park in a great location, but I had an issue with the customer service. We are new to RVing and I forgot to ask about club discounts. The receptionist did not ask me if we were club members either when I called on the phone or checked in, nor do they have a Good Sam's sign in the office. The only way I found out was because I overheard someone asking about it when I was back in the office extending our stay. The attitude of the personnel when I complained about not getting my discount was, "Oh well, too bad for you." Everyone I met that worked there acted as though they were doing me a favor by renting me a spot The free internet did not work the three days we were there. Someone's dog pooped on the interior road near the office before we arrived and it was still there when we left. The whole experience was not very inviting.

Location, location, location. This is a small, cleanpark right next to a very large public beach on the North end of Galveston Island. If you come in on the Ferry, you will drive right past the campground. Most of the campsites are within a fence and away from the road. There are some sites along the road, avoid those if you can - the traffic is noisy and constant, and you will need to access the facilities through a locked gate into the rest of the compound. Our campsite was concrete paved, the utilities were convenient. We were along the 20 foot tall retaining wall that separates the campground from the road above, and it was very quiet. Every campsite has some palm tree "shade" and lots of grass. The pool was very nice. The campground is very near to the things you want to see and do in Galveston. We really felt like we lucked out with the location. Part of our stay was during Texas Spring Break, and the fee was $60/night. Part of our stay was outside of Spring Break and the fee was $50/night. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nothing wrong with this place. Good size, level pull through sites with easy access. Park is walking distance to the beach. Very well maintained. Nice infinity pool. Situated at the east end of Galveston which is the perfect spot for access to town and the Bolivar ferry. Walking distance to restaurants, or you can get delivery. Nice and quiet. Will surely return if we're in the area. 3 minute drive to East Beach to see the ships sail by. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
