Andy Bowie Park reviews
We had a great week at this park. The park is small with just a few spots. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the onsite bathroom was clean. Because of the closure to day visitors, we had a... more »
Pros: Quick access to private beach, very secluded and not far from the RVs, the person at the front office was very nice and the shared facilities were clean enough to shower in, nothing to write home about but better than I expected. We also had no problem with the RV hookups: electric, water & sewage. Cons: The RV Park is basically a parking lot. There was a table but no grassy area for each RV. My dogs had a hard time going to the grassy areas surrounding the parking lot because of the amount of stickers. There is a large pavilion but no grilling allowed on it. The path to the beach although not far (40 yards or so) between 11am-5pm is so hot, it feels like you’re walking on coals. It would be amazing if it was boarded all the way to the beach just to save your feet. Overall, we did have a great time and for a couple/family planning to beach it up, this is the perfect spot.
It's the gulf of mexico/beach access. What more to say? My granddaughter made friends while playing in sand and my grandson wouldn't come out of the water : D. Bring plenty of sunscreen, your own shelter & refreshments. There are no amenities here. Oh yeah, had strong waves that day-i was on shore at the waters edge and got splashed hard enough to break the frames on my sunglasses-bring cheap ones and an extra pair. No photos to post right now-was out of space on phone so grandsons dad has them.
