This is a very clean, well kept little RV destination. It's close to a lot of attractions, near the interstate, and access is convenient. It isn't for those looking to get out to nature, but none of the parks in this area are. This is directly between Houston and Galveston Island, near NASA and some great restaurants. The people are friendly and I would recommend this park to anyone visiting the area. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here several times because it is close to family members. The park is very crowded, lots are close together, hard to maneuver inside park and is on a noisy highway. Lots of full timers in park. The last time we stayed, however, the condition was much worse. The park was very unkempt and trashy looking. There were deep ruts in the ground beside the pads and was very hard to step out of the trailer without falling. We had a family emergency and needed to leave two days early and management would not even discuss a possible one or two night "credit".....just a future stay credit, not a refund. The park had many open spaces the whole time we were there so it wasn't "capacity" issue. We will not be staying here again and I would not recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here three months, thus the $15.00 per night rate. Campground very convenient to Kemah, Galveston, NASA, Houston, shopping. Very friendly and helpful. Pool and hot tub was nice. Interstate traffic noise is loud. We had trees buffering much of the noise. Short walking distance to Cracker Barrel. Many campers stay year-round working in the area. No senior activities or gatherings. We will be back next year. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

Really noisy as it is on Highway 45. I had to wear ear plugs to get to sleep. We camped here because we wanted to visit Johnson Space Center and leave the dog in an air conditioned rig. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate was stay 2 nights, get one free. Best location for visiting the space center but that is all that can be said for it. Narrow sites, no tables. Space between sites was grassy but ours was rutted from vehicles driving over it. Had to be careful not to turn ankle. Traffic on I-45 is noisy. Had to leave rig closed up and use AC even though weather was nice. There are other campgrounds in Houston on major arteries that are not as noisy. The campground is about 23 miles from Galveston so it is a good location for visiting both Houston and Galveston. Path through to Cracker Barrel, otherwise you have to buck the traffic. We would not stay here again unless we were visiting the Space Center - and then we might consider driving further to stay in a nicer quieter campground. Staff was friendly but that didn't make up for the lack of space and noise. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a "shakedown" night since it was close to where we purchased our trailer. Our site was about halfway back in the park and didn't seen overly noisy to me. If you want a perfectly serene camping spot, don't pick a park on a major Interstate. That seems pretty simple to me. It's like buying a retirement condo next to the pool and then complaining about the noise. There were back-in and pull-through sites. My trailer is 10' longer than my old one and even with not being used to it, I would have had plenty of room to back it in. I don't know what a lot of the comments here on small spaces are about. How much room do you need to park a rig? There seemed to be a mix of RVs in the park, with many looking a little dilapidated, so there must have been some full-time residents there, although I wouldn't pick it for a permanent residence. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, but then, I'm not a very needy person. The park is located near shopping and eateries, i you need that. All in all, it was a pleasant stay We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had planned to stay at this park for two nights. Found the park to be located right beside a very busy interstate which made the site extremely noisy. Pad and access road was rather narrow making it difficult to park. The host was very sympathetic, even offered to move us to the rear of the park. We decided to move on and try a different park. We had payed for two night but the host graciously reimbursed us the cost of the second night. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An OK park for a couple of nights to maybe see NASA tours or the area. Tight spaces. Tough to get into or out of. A large majority are workers rebuilding Galveston from Hurricane Ike and Katrina. Seems fairly safe, no problems that we encountered. Next to hwy 45 so get freeway noise if site is to the front. Not a long term park. Would look for another park with more space before staying here again. We are staying a week and the rate is $235.00 We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very noisy as it is right next to the interstate. The spaces are very narrow and not at all easy to get in and out of. This park is very close to a lot of great restaurants and not very far from Kemah. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you don't want a good nights sleep this is the place to go! Right next to I-45. This place was not set up for RV'ers but for the money. The sites are narrow & small. When we made our reservatons for 5 days the person said that there was only one site left & it was a corner site near the interstate but would try to move us when we arrived. So I thought I would try it & see what happens. When we arrived they had some sites for us to check out alright but they were small back-in's & I would have never fit in them. So they said if we can stay there for the night they will try to move us in the back tomorrow. Anyway we stayed 2 days with out sleep & headed south on I-45. The only thing this park has going for it is the amenities being close to the Space Center & etc... The management was nice but no help. When we checked out they gave us a one day refund instead of three but I really didn't care, just get out of there & get some sleep else where. Never again!

I just read the previous entries and had to respond. I visited the park in April with my two daughters (girls weekend). I was unaware of any ownership change, but had no problems with the staff. In fact, the gentleman that runs the free breakfast each morning was very nice. The food offered was great and the kitchen was spotless. The meeting room was quite large with TV, books, and games. There was a very nice fitness center which we used each day. The pool and hot tub was extremely clean, though I did notice a couple of tiles missing. I loved the setup of the bathrooms and showers and thought they were very well maintained. The park was extremely clean and, though there were full timers, they kept the area around their RV's very clean. The only downside was that the park is right off of I-45 and so pretty noisy. However, the location to area attractions was great! Kemah boardwalk was a full day of fun with great restaurants, lots of shopping, and carnival like games and rides. There are several movie theatres and a mall nearby. Galveston is close enough to spend the day while still far enough away to protect my RV from the saltwater. Maybe not the best park if you are looking for a weekend of hanging out at your RV and resting under the trees (there are none). But a great park if you want to swim and visit lots of area attractions. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
This park is under new management since the previous comments were posted. We stayed here for three nights in June and found the park and management to be great. Our kids really enjoyed the swimming pool,and we loved the hot tub. The restrooms and showers were very clean. To our surprise, there was continental breakfast each morning in the meeting/rec room, with cereals, toast, rolls, fruit, coffee, and juice. We had a flat tire on our travel trailer before we left, and within five minutes of my husband starting to change it, the manager and two fellow campers came over to offer their assistance. Overall, our experience was great and I would highly recommend this park! P.S. It's about 10 minutes from NASA, 15 minutes from Kemah Boardwalk, and 25 minutes to Galveston.

Rude management...inconsistent with enforcing park rules...very confrontational if you aren't from anywhere up north!!!! It is by far the worst rv park management we have ever encountered!!!! We have been fulltiming for over 3 years...staying in parks all over the USA. We have a high end 5th wheel and the park says no rigs over 10 years old!!! Well that is a joke!!! One of the motorhomes has the engine sitting in front of it for
almost 3 weeks and is at least 20 years old!!! The brochure is really overstated in regards to the park!!! Where else can I get a true picture of some of these rv parks that are dumps but put out glossy brochures??? We camped at Space Center RV Park in a camper.
