Since I have lived in the gulf coast around Galveston the majority of my life I have not experienced a lot of other beaches. We have been here for almost a week and are enjoying the relaxing atmosphere in this huge state park. There are almost 500 sites and they are all well kept. Bath houses are very plentiful and...

I came expecting a "cabin" experience and I was good with that. Three friends and I drove in from Texas looking for a quiet time to just rest, relax and renew because we all have very intense jobs. We rented cabin 31.... When we unlocked the door and went in all of our jaws dropped because it was so nice... More

We stayed for a week in a 36 foot straight pull on the water. All sites are level and can fit almost any size camper. We had 4 adults and plenty to do. The pool is huge and the bath houses are extremely clean. The park is quiet even when it was full. We will definitely come back.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a tent. This was our first time camping near the beach and it exceeded our expectations. We arrived at 1:30 AM and the guy that checked us in was very nice and gave us plenty of info. The beach is approximately a one mile walk (from our campsite) but it was a very... More

This is a wonderful park with a great staff clean and well maintained . We areRv people 6 months out of the year best beaches fishing central to all activity in the area. You could stay at resorts in the area that are dumps for 10 times the money.

Been camping there since the park was on the BIG Lake(60s) .Has so many check in rules now that change with the volunteers working check in desk.It needs to be first come first served.When we were there there were lake side sites vacant for the whole week,reserved.For who?It's a camp ground not a five star motel.

Great place to go in the Fall of the year. It is not crowded and plenty of campsites. The pool is great. There is much to do, besides sit around in the sun, We will go back many more times. Just be aware the snowbirds start coming in the middle of October.

If you camp here you would do best in an rv of some sort as there are alligators. Lots to do all around you and the park offers a pool and zip lines as well as gulf access. Hiking is flat terrain and there are biking trails as well as biking along the gulf. No a lot of shade so... More
