  • This was an awesome place to camp with the kids because it’s just a short walk to the beach. The ocean side camp sites are close enough to hear the sounds of the ocean and also have a bathroom and showers to clean up after a day in the sand. Campsites are usually hard to reserve last minute so plan ahead but this is a great way to enjoy Galveston’s beach.
  • Nice park! They keep.it clean and maintained and the staff is very kind and helpful. P A nice area to rinse and have a picnic or BBQ changing rooms an office with souvenirs and basic needs campgrounds available. The beach section itself is the nicest area in Galveston!
