“Small campgrond tucked between road and beach”

Reviewed May 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Good sites, all in a row, decent separation. What really makes this place special is the beach: a short walk from the campsites, and a long stretch of beach with good shell hunting and lovely sunsets. Traffic from the nearby road is sometimes noisy, but it definitely dies down in the evening/nighttime. The visitor center has a good... more

“Must be the best value in Galveston area”

We bought a new to us TT this past September and promptly took a one night shake down trip to a nearby lake. Worked out well. This past week we finally got around to a real trip. Wife insisted on a beach trip which I was against (sand/rust/salt/etc.). Rockport and Port A were possibilities but I dint want to be right on the beach... more

“Convenient to Galveston”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here on the Bay side for 1 night after being on the beach for 10 nights so it was great to have water and electric to get everything clean. Shower house was clean and updated, though quite a walk from the rv sites. The rate of $20 doesn’t include the $5/person per day entrance fee so in reality it cost $30/day for us. If you pla... more

“Camping near Gulf and Bay beaches”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed on the Gulf side campsites. Each one has a covered picnic area. It's a quick walk to the beach. We were cautious about the 3 types poisonous snakes that live in the park. You can walk or bike to a small grocery store south of the campsites. I never realized how much of a resort area Galveston is. Plenty of restaurants and ent... more

“Very nice stay on the Beach Side”

We were lucky to find 1 beach site available for 3 nights :) and it was close to one of the bathhouses. The showers and bathrooms are old but clean. The paved sites are close to each other giving little privacy but they have a nice covered picnic table. The beach is a short walk from the campground and there are miles of beach t... more

“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

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
