Our home for four days was Sandpiper RV Resort located on Seawall...very convenient to Galveston's beaches (one is right next to the RV park). We had a nice level concrete site with full hook-ups. The sites are close together, but it's not a very big park. If you're going to stay here make reservations in advance. It was completely full (except for a couple of sites along Seawall St.) for the entire four days we were there. They have a nice infinity pool with a waterfall that cascades off the edge of the pool down to the RV park level. We did not use the pool or restroom/shower facilities, so can't report on the condition of those. There are also motel rooms at the resort. I would give the park 3-1/2 stars (it could have been more if I knew the conditions of the bath houses.

All for tonight. Over and out.
