Galveston Island State ParkLooking for a great vacation destination in south Texas, perhaps just outside the Houston area? Better yet, what about a campground located right on the beach? If that sounds like a match made in vacation heaven, then our crew at Dependable Camper Rentals think you should check out Galveston Island State Park.

About the Park

Galveston Island State Park is a beautiful island with both bay and beach sides. They’re known not only for their great water views but also for their peaceful surroundings and range of activities. Whether you come for respite or for outdoor recreation, Galveston Island offers visitors a large number of amenities, including:
  • Swimming
  • Bird watching
  • Picnicking
  • Mountain biking trails
  • Hiking
  • Geocaching
  • Relaxing on the beach
  • And more
Note that the park doesn’t rent or sell kayaks or canoes, but if you happen to bring your own, you can find many great areas perfect for paddling.

Campground Info

If you plan on bringing an RV rental, you can choose from either bay side or beach side campsites. You’ll want to read through the descriptions carefully, but you can expect both campgrounds to have water and electricity available as well as nearby restrooms and an on-site picnic table. They have a limited number of sites available, so we recommend that you make your reservations as soon as possible, especially if you plan to travel during the holidays or vacation season.
