Four of us stayed in a pet-friendly cabin over New Year's. A $15/day fee is added on for pet damage - not bad, not great. Having said that, here's my warning list: 1) beds are double, hard as concrete, 2) beds had sheets and coverlet only; no blankets anywhere, 3) cooking stove was apartment sized, dirty oven, elements kept coming...

We stayed at this park for a little under a month - monthly rate is very reasonable especially seeing you have full hook up (50 amp) and a choice of site types - all concrete pads with picnic table and a BBQ grill. We chose a waterfront site overlooking a freshwater lake. We were a little disappointed as we thought... More

Thought we'd b able to bike ride to the beach. Nope. Not many trees and very bad stickers in the grass areas (not good on the dogs pads). Cement slabs for level parking. Great Camp Store. Very friendly people. No fire puts. Can, however, bring your own.

I booked the cabins/ cottages and activity center for my staff retreat and found the whole thing to be perfect. It was centrally located, had a beautiful property, and tons of amenities for all. The staff was very happy! The three bed/ bath cottages have been updated and include granite countertops and beautiful furniture. The cabins are a little more... More

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
