“After staying on both beach and bay side, we liked the beach more”

Reviewed Nov 29, 2017

Overall Rating

Galveston Island State Park has two separate campgrounds, one on the Gulf Coast beach side of the island and the other, about 1.5 miles away, on the bay side of the island. We stayed on the beach side for a week and then booked an additional week on the bay side. The beach side costs $25 per night, while the bay side costs $20 per nigh... more

“Boring and Very cramped!”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2017

Overall Rating

We had really looked forward to our visit to Galveston Island and the State Park, boy were we disappointed! We chose to stay on the bay side rather than the beach as I am not a fan of wind blown sand. The sites are very tight! laid out in a circle the pads or about 10 feet apart. there is a large grassy area with a pavilion in the m... more

“No privacy, but the views are spectacular”

Reviewed Apr 07, 2017

Overall Rating

This review is for the marsh-side sites. There are sites on the beach, but they are difficult to reserve unless pretty far in advance. There are two "circles," one with hookups for RVs, and one for tents. Sites are level and angled so that they're easy to back in. Big grassy area in the center of the ring to throw balls/frisbees fo... more

“Great location with sounds of the surf rolling in. Couldn't get any better beach front site.”

We arrived late in the day, missing the check-in time. Our site was identified on the bulletin board and we went in search of it. Perfect location near the third bath house, which was next to the beach access. It was high tide so we didn't get to walk the beach the first night but hey, it was getting late and we needed to set up and ... more

Having lived in Texas my entire life, this was my first adventure towards Galveston. I was a bit apprehensive given my travels to Port Aransas and South Padre Island. I was pleasantly surprised with the overall quality of the facility. We were fortunate to have stayed during wonderful weather. The temperatures were in the middle 70... more

“Beautiful beach, cramped sites”

Reviewed Apr 09, 2016

Overall Rating

This is the 6th Texas state park we've stayed in this year, and it's our least favorite. We stayed in a beachside site. There isn't a water view from the beachside sites, they just have good access to the beach. They're also very close together and offer no privacy. We actually kept our blinds closed most of the time we were here. ... more

“Steps from the beach.”

Reviewed Feb 15, 2016

Overall Rating

This park is wonderful. It's peaceful, even with a road running in between the beach side and the bay side. Mosquitos can be bad, but I recommend the cooler months. Beach walks are a must. You can kayak or canoe on the bay side. Fish on either side. There are two new bath houses to use. Picnic shelters and grills for your needs. And ac... more

Galveston Island State Park has two separate camping areas; one by the beach and one by the bay. There are 36 camping sites by the beach. The sites are paved asphalt, narrow and relatively level. Each site has a covered picnic table and a fire ring. There is very little space between the sites. Every 12 sites has a restroom with s... more

We camped here in March, 2015 in a 35 foot fifth wheel. The rate shown does not reflect the $5 per day per person state park entry fee. We purchased a $70 annual park pass which will give us free entrance to state parks for a year. With the park pass we also received 4 coupons to receive a half price discount on our second night stay i... more
