Dellanera RV Park is a beachfront campground in Galveston with more than 60 paved full hookup campsites, most with ocean views. The campsites aren’t spacious but they’re renovated and, overall, large enough to accommodate bigger RVs. They provide water, electricity, sewer, private picnic tables, and BBQ pits – all at prices starting from $41 in winter and $46 in summer (per day). The park is surrounded by a natural pond. The staff are friendly and always ready to help; the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet.
At Dellanera Beach, you can relax in the sun, have a swim in the shining waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and make use of any of the provided amenities, such as picnic areas with tables, restrooms, rinse showers, a children’s playground, chair and umbrella rental services, wireless Internet, and a gift shop.
Close To the Town
On the other hand, the RV Park is in close proximity to the town where you can go sightseeing and have dinner in a good restaurant. It’s about a 5-minute drive from the campground to gas stations and stores, where you can buy some supplies. The Seawall is just a couple of miles east of the park.
Dellanera RV Park is located extremely close to the beach – it’s a very short walk from any of the campsites and there is a boardwalk leading there. The sandy beach is scenic and relaxing, good for sunbathing, building castles, picnicking, strolling, and watching seabirds. There are areas where you can drive your car directly on the beach, so you won’t have to drag your coolers and equipment too far.
The place is rather popular, so it can get crowded in the summer months – it’s better to come earlier if you want to occupy a good spot. The water is murky (just like in most places in Galveston) but swimming is okay. Overall, the beach isn’t always clean because some tourists leave trash after themselves and the sand can also get cluttered with seaweed but not all the time. After cleanups, the beach looks beautiful and pristine.
Dog Policies and Other Rules
At Dellanera Beach, you’re allowed to walk a dog, but strictly on a leash, and be ready to pick up after your pet. Glass bottles are prohibited. You’re not allowed to make bonfires, or camp on the beach overnight (from midnight to 5 in the morning). You should also stay away from the dunes.
