Galveston Island RV Resort is a new, large resort with modern amenities. Very close to the beach on the far western end of the island. We stayed there last year X2 and enjoyed it both times. Plan to spend a day in downtown Galveston on the strand visiting the old shops, restaurants, hotels, etc.

Galveston is a wonderful town of history and architectural mansions to tour, and great seafood (Fisherman's Wharf on the Strand and Gaidos on the seawall) but the water is not beautiful because the Mississippi R. dumps the entore U.S. load of dirt into the Gulf Stream at New Orleans which then circulates westward thereby keeping the water muddy/sandy until about 125 miles southwest of Galveston. Only south of Corpus and down toward S. Padre does the beach and water look picturesque.... but if you understand it's only sand in the water and not sewage... Galveston is a wonderful old tourist town full of history. (Pirate Jean Lafitte house, the Strand, Bishops Palace/mansions, Aircraft Museum, last operational diesel-electric submarine museum (served WW2 and VietNam), the Tall Ship Elissa (originally a sailing ship, then eventually a converted Greek smugglers ship, then restored/returned to sail) railroad museum... then a free ride on the Bolivar ferry to head off eastwards on your trip.
