I was really looking forward to coming back to this park but it has really changed. Owner seems to have become money hungry and making poor decisions. Park is very dark because lights are all out and has supposedly been like that for months. He has the older ladies in the office doing night time security, which is dangerous! My husband watched an incident happen with a drunk guest and was worried for the poor woman's safety. Apparently not screening people anymore. Police were there twice during our 4 day stay.Internet not working, problems with cable TV and electric service. All I heard the whole time we were there, was how upset everyone was. Very sad. I felt bad for the office staff who get to hear all the complaints.Used to be a really nice place. Luckily, there are a lot of new places popping up in the surrounding area that we can try. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Neat and well kept. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The pull thru sites were a little close. The back in sites seemed to have a little more space between rigs. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

While it is very pretty, this park is way too expensive for what you get. We camp over 200 nights per year. This is the most expensive park we ever stayed in. At $40 this would be an OK park. This rate reflected Good Sam discount, and the up-charge for weekends. We originally planned four nights and paid the weekend rate. Discovering we had a mechanical issue, we extended three nights more but they refused to let us convert to the weekly rate. Other parks have done that for us before. The sites are very narrow. You could literally open your window and tap on the next door window. There are few tables, but there is no room for them anyway, or for chairs. There is no shade for the pull-through sites. The Wi-Fi is not functional. The Cable TV is snowy. It is more than half full of extended stay campers. Those campers are working families and do not cause any trouble or noise. It does rankle that they are paying $600 per month and the transients are paying the equivalent of about $2000 per month. The most concerning thing of all is there is no one there when the office is closed. No one answers the emergency number. There was a water leak, causing a flood and no one answered when the water company worker tried to reach them. No one picks up. Someone put beer bottles in the fountain and I walked by it for two days before I finally fished them out myself and disposed of them. This place is the only game in town and they know it. Once someone else opens up a reasonable park, they are in for an awakening. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Enjoy the park but business practices have a lot to be desired. We heard through the grape vine today that monthly rent is going up $100 this month with no notice. We have been here for several months and intended to be here long term . When we checked in they said they had raised their rates since we were there before but we didn't care because that was 5 years ago and seemed justified I spoke to the office and they confirmed. I ask why there was no notification and they said it was posted in the Laundry room and community room ( things I don't visit ) so we had no way to know. Apparently a lot of others didn't either. I ask why they didn't send out a notice or a notice in last months bill and they said that this is how "Corporate " told them to handle. Checked their web site and it says "rates subject to change with no notice. Don't know if that was every there or not before, its certainly not printed on my receipt. To anyone booking reservations, I suggest you get confirmation in writing on how long your rate is good for . We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is based on four weeks, electric is extra. Because we are Urban RVers, and not campers, this is perfect for us. Within walking distance of several great places to eat. Lots of shopping within a short walk or drive. It's within minutes of the Kemah Boardwalk with more upscale eating. Lots of attractions within a short drive (less than an hour, with traffic). There are a couple things that might be cons to some, but didn't bother us much. There were several families with young children, but they were very well behaved. The sites were pretty close together, but since we weren't camping, we didn't care. The biggest con for us was the lack of enforcement of the parking rules. Because the sites were close, and some people had more than one vehicle, often people ended up being halfway into the street. Made for a lot of blind-spots for walkers. The staff was very nice and helpful, but we are pretty easy to please. All in all, though this is a great place as a home base for seeing the sites of the Houston Galveston area.

Nice campground, a bit noisy in the morning when people leave for work. People park in aisle making it hard to drive thru. Very clean, well kept. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been coming here for seven years now and the Resort gets better every year. The landscaping and the neighbors are so friendly and benevolent to others. The staff here at Marina Bay are polite and so helpful. They can answer any question that you can possibly have about how the RV Park is like to where is the best place to get BBQ or seafood. They are great at letting you know that you have received mail or a package. There is an event that we go to every Tuesday night called "Cork on the Wall." They provide dinner and wine and people go to socialize with others. We can not say enough good things about this place, other than WE WILL BE BACK SOON!!

This park was all concrete and very clean and quiet, but the sites were too close together. We came out of our door, and right into the neighbor's slide out. We were on the 'adults only' side, which looked like all working people who lived there. There was also no place to park your vehicle once you unhooked from your trailer. And as others have said, you'd have to wait until the workers leave for work before you could pull your camper out. We would NOT stay at this park again, although my two 20-something daughters LOVED the bathroom shower-houses, which were VERY nice and the pool. The cable did not work when we arrived. We checked all our hook ups and TV and then called the desk, who said they would send someone out to fix it. But within 2 minutes, it magically started working and we never called back and no one ever showed up to fix it. What do you think? We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Good all around park with somewhat tight spaces. Staff must be in training or have a new computer system. Check-in was tedious. Wi-Fi good, cable good. Concrete pads - some of which are a bit narrow for my friends with multiple slides. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Concrete pads are level but small spacing width, agree with other posters about crowding. It would be hard to leave early in the morning with so many doolies lining the street, over parking is a problem...great fried shrimp across the street at Joe Lee's and RV park has a coupon attached to site map, can walk to it.

We found this park to be clean; dog owners picked up; nice area of grass near the water; and very close to all the attractions. Just a mile to Kemah boardwalk, and 15 minutes to Johnson Space Center. Galveston was 30 mi down Hwy 146; close to Target and Walmart. But as the last review said, just too tight! There is literally 6 feet of grass between concrete pads and they are not wide pads. If you were to put up a lawn chair you would be staring at your own vehicle or the neighbors huge truck just a few feet away. We got to listen to a small dog barking for four days as it was left all day in the neighboring trailer. Poor thing. We walked our dogs to the water front area and then east onto a vacant lot, and there was plenty of room there. Most of the park is full timers who must work in the area and seem to park all over as they don't fit in their own sites. We must have had the same issues with rain as last reviewer. You didn't have room to walk around your RV without being on the saturated grass area. The check in gals were nice, but the park is just too pricey and too cramped for enjoyment. OK for a short time, but our four days was plenty long there. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Good location if you want to spend time at the Kemah Boardwalk. Was within walking distance of about a mile. Also good location if you want to go to NASA. Park is really tight! Not enough room at most sites for both the RV and the 2nd vehicle. Trucks and cars parked in the roadway made it tricky to pull our rig in and out. All sites are concrete pads which was nice, but it was so tight we couldn't step out of the RV onto the concrete - walked down the steps into the grass, which was OK except when it rained.

This will be our third stay at the park and every time we come we find it clean, well kept, with nice amenities. The owner and staff are very hard working people who take pride in their park and yes they did build it. We have always found them friendly and helpful. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.
