The small town of Gilchrist, Texas, is located on the pristine coast of the Gulf of Mexico. The coast offers great fishing, as well as swimming and beautiful beach scenery. Lakes and swamps abound in the nearby area, so a change of scenery is easy to find if you want a day away from the salt and sand. Gilchrist also makes a great base camp for visits to Galveston Island, without the crowds and traffic of staying on the island itself.
Las Palmas RV Park

Within the park itself is great hiking, fishing and swimming. In addition to the Gulf, Crab Lake is nearby and is a great quiet relaxation spot if you want a day away from the beach crowds.
