Bayou Shores RV Resort

Bayou Shores RV Resort advertises itself as being the RV facility closest to the historic section of Galveston. That makes this a good choice if you are interested in checking out the historical importance of this town that survived a devastating hurricane a century ago. You will find 84 full hookup sites with nine pull-through sites. If your idea of outdoor recreation includes water parks then be aware that Bayou Shores is just a mile and a half from the tubing, sliding and surfing fun found at Schlitterbahn Waterpark. If simulated waves and surfing isn't your style, then head to the beach, which is five minutes from this Galveston RV park.
