Texas Gulf Coast Camping

Hi Folks,

We are planing a short vacation mid / late september and need some advice on a good campground.
We are going to Visit Houston and Galveston Area and plan to stay one week.

Now.. since my Overlander will not be ready, we consider just renting a local RV at a campsite or a cabin. We do have a couple of small dogs that always travel with us.

Which campground can you recommend to us in this area , that rents either RV or Cabins?

thanks a lot

In February after attending a kite festival at South Padre Island, we stayed a week at Jamaica Beach RV a few miles south of Galveston. It is a nice place owned and run by a nice couple, and not to expensive. Full hookup. Two mornings a week they serve breakfast for $2.00. Nate's Restaurant, a good place to eat, is across the street and just a few hundred yards south. Don't miss it.

While there we drove to Houston to visit the Space Center and stopped on our way back at "T" Bone Tom's (Diners, Drive-in and Dives) in Kemah. Another good place to eat. Try their Armadillo Eggs. You will thank me.

Lakeview RV resort is a place you might check into. It's in the Southwest part of Houston close to the Medical Center. We've stayed there several times when in Houston.
