Stayed 2 nights to visit family. Lots are very close. Full hooks but very weak wifi. Park is right on the bay and you can watch shrimp boats arrive. Good spot for fishermen. Good laundry facilities but small. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice. friendly. Nice location. Fishing very close. Very enjoyable. Would be a ten except we stayed there in rain and roads were very muddy. Concrete sites were nice. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Truck Camper.

This park is still run-down looking. We have been coming here for years and it hasn't changed at all. Promises are made to grade the streets and to add more concrete pads but nothing has been done. Nice quiet little park and the staff is helpful but it's time that someone takes some pride in this park. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is getting a run down look. Dust from the unpaved roads, boat repair noise and paint in the air is a real problem. Wi-Fi is very slow, I imagine this is because it is not secured and most of the businesses around use it, also. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms are exceptionally clean and fresh. Overall, good park, just run down, heard many complaints about run down marina. At times it looked like the boats were dumping their black tanks in the water and it backs up in the inner corners of the marina. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Easy in and out. Nice helpful management. Well maintained park. Beautiful views. Wonderful walking 2-3 mile paved path along the ocean bay. Wide sites. Decent WiFi. Limited restaurants in the area. There is some noisy boat repair next door but all is quiet after 5pm. I would recommend staying in the higher numbered premium sites. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice setting with the marina view site. Shipyard facility offers some ambient sandblasting noise, not a problem for us. Getting some age on the facilities, but they were clean. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

This is an old park, but has been taken care of with new concrete pull-troughs with nice patios. It is on the bay and has beautiful views of the water. We will stay here again. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Really a very nice place. There are well laid out wide spaces. Quiet. Good laundry but the dryers are too high off the floor. They have programs to keep you busy and a very friendly staff. They also pickup your trash at the curb. The lead you to your site and help you as needed. Didn't use the pool, but it was clean. Great views and the Marina is very picturesque.

Not anything like it's advertised. Shrimp boats and 18wheelers running their engines all night. If the wind comes from the southwest you smell diesel and paint from the shipyards. During the day the sound of sandblasting is deafening. They have a nice pool but not heated. Activities are very limited. We found a nice place on Lavaca Bay and at least the managers were nice when you had a complaint, which were few. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

The sites in this park have two categories -- paved and dirt. The section with pull-throughs has some back-ins that face the marina. It has a paved road and paved sites. The rest of the park is raw and with gravel roads and dirt sites. These are close together and in the winter are mostly filled with winter residents. When it rains they are a mess. The pool is small. The baths are spacious, clean, but old. There is a large laundry area. The rally room and rec room are only open in the winter. There are playgrounds for kids nearby as well as a large free fishing pier. While there, the main larger boat marina was quiet. We had some of the most spectacular sunsets we have ever seen. Palacious is a small town with a small grocery, Dairy Queen, Sonic, a grill and seafood and several Mexican restaurants. For our purposes of having a quiet couple of days it was fine. We will probably go back again. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

We had planned on staying in this Park, but upon arrival and inspection, we drove on. It was like a desert. No shade anywhere, small lots, small pool, showers, restrooms were adequate. Marina was not attractive. I would not recommend this to anyone. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Someone dropped the ball on this park. The pictures on their website are quite deceiving. Not much to do unless you fish. A boat yard next door will coat your RV with soot if the wind is blowing right and big trucks lend to the noise all night. The pool was nice and refreshing and cable TV was available (for an extra charge). The internet was slow, I suspect a hog on the Wi-Fi. We kind of laughed about the dock sinking, but a regular here said it was common. We will not be back. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

I rated this park an 8 because it wasn't the best one we have stayed in, nor was it the worst. The restrooms and showers were super clean and the staff very friendly. Choice of beach or pool was awesome. The only downside we encountered was the WiFi wasn't working and the park was full of burrs which we were constantly picking from our dog. We will probably return here again! We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

We camped here in April and again in May. The park is very clean and the staff friendly. We liked being right on the water. It was very windy both times we were there. They have nice concrete pads with plenty of room to maneuver. The park is on the marina. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

This park would rate a 10 if they had an all weather hot tub and the standard sites had more room. The sewer connections are too close to your neighbor’s door. The standard sites may also be a little muddy in wet weather. I also discount if a park has a menu of charges. We paid $22 for a Standard $22 site after a $2 Good Sam discount but a $2 charge for cable TV. We did not get a reduction for not using the pool, for not having a pet, and for not using the club house. The Wi-Fi was fine and the front office was not hesitant to reset it if it went down, unlike many parks that claim the problem is YOUR computer. The strong side to this park is the excellent bathrooms and showers. This park’s showers should be a model for others to copy. They had entry doors and a shower curtain that kept water in the shower. There was a mat on the dressing area floor and ample hooks for clothes. Picnic tables were available and there are ample recreation opportunities. The local 9 hole golf course is OK while Bay City’s Rio Colorado Golf Course is a good bargain and a fine course. We camped at Serendipity Bay RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.
