“Great location, hard time with cell reception”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2019

Overall Rating

I have an old Mifi which might be my problem. It has flipped terribly often between 3G and 4G LTE. A neighbor shared their Jetpack 7730 and Jetpack 8800 for me to compare with. Seems that my Jetpack 6620L is the issue. This shouldn't be the case, but it is what I experienced and wanted to be honest in my review of the campground so ... more

“Peaceful ”

Reviewed Jan 29, 2019

Overall Rating

Our fee paid reflects the Texas State park pass which takes off the daily entrance fees. We loved Galveston area. Wish we had more time. It was peaceful here. We stayed oceanside. I wish we would have also stayed bayside. Just a heads up if it rains, all the oceanside sites flood. We woke up to what I called Lake Galveston. They do pum... more

“Beautiful Water Views, Dark Nights”

Reviewed Dec 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites are tight together for a state park in both the beach and bay campgrounds. We stayed at the bay side and had wonderful views of the water and marshes. Nice sunset, dark skies with lots of stars at night. Note the beach spots are behind the small dunes so you might get water view if you're rig is tall. Level asphalt pads wi... more

“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

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

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
