Galveston Island State Park has two separate campgrounds, one on the Gulf Coast beach side of the island and the other, about 1.5 miles away, on the bay side of the island. We stayed on the beach side for a week and then booked an additional week on the bay side.
We stayed at this park for two nights as it is conveniently located off I-10 and was a perfect place to stop as we traveled west. However, absent our 50% discount with Passport America, we would have a hard time justifying the cost of this place.
This is a typical commercial RV park located just north of Pensacola. It was convenient for us as we traveled west across I-10, but it's not somewhere we'd go out of our way to return to.
We absolutely loved this state park. It's basically in the middle of nowhere, but as a stopover on the way to or from New Orleans, it can't be beat.
This is an absurdly expensive RV park, but in our view, it was worthwhile. You simply cannot be any closer to all that New Orleans has to offer than this park.
This is an awesome campground located just steps from one of the most beautiful beaches we've seen.
This is a very small campground convenient to I-10 and located on a beautiful lake (Lake Seminole).
This is a very small campground in a very small Florida State Park. There is wide variation in the sites, but most are pretty nice, and given the full hook-ups and low price, it's definitely worth a stop if you're traveling across the panhandle.
This private campground, located in St. Augustine, came under new management about a year before our visit, and they have been working hard to upgrade it. As private campgrounds go, it's pretty nice, but it's still a private campground which, in our experience, means more money for less space and privacy.
