Texas Beach camping?

Planning our next trip to the Gulf in Texas, hopefully in September.. Would like to be on the beach, or within an easy walk with dogs. We'll be in a motor home. Idea's ?? Would like full hookups. I've looked at bunches on rvpark reviews, but first hand knowledge would seem more important. Thanks bunches,
Monkey

We stayed at Pioneer Beach Resort in 2008. They have a boardwalk to the beach. It will be hot! Good place.

TX has hundreds of miles of beach. We live here. FYI September is high hurricane season so you may wait a month, October is a better month here.

We recommend Sandpiper RV Resort in Galveston. It is on the east end of town, a small new park. Also, its on the water side of the road, and is in town as opposed to 11 miles out of town. Galveston is an interesting town.

Dogs are generally OK on the beach on leash, but not on the City Beach. In off season no one bothers them off leash, except maybe the Coyotes.

Thanks so much for the idea's !! Not too worried about hurricane's as at least you usually get a few days notice, unlike tornado's here... Galveston is quite doable, (sp?) as it's just over 600 miles from here.

Monkey,
Galveston State Park is near Jamaica Beach and has water, electric and a dump station. The only thing separating the RV park and the ocean are the dunes and there are walkways over to the ocean, real close. Also in Galveston is Delanera RV park, and the other end of the island, East end has an RV park on the ocean.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We stayed a couple of days at Jamaica Beach RV park this month. Clean and folks are very nice. You can walk across street to beach. I thought sites in the front were nicer than the back which is adjacent to a pasture.

We've stayed at both Mustang Island State Park and Goose Island State Park. Mustang Island is more of a "true" beach, being on the gulf and all. Goose Island is a smaller park on the bay with little/no swimming area but excellent fishing and a boat ramp. Mustang Island also allows you to camp right on the beach itself (bring boards/carpet in case you get stuck). Goose Island feels really "tight" to get into with large oaks everywhere on the drive in, and low hanging branches, but we navigated our Thor Outlaw (12'10" clearance) in and out of the park with no problems.
