Kemah RV Resort Overview:

Kemah RV Resort is located about 2.5 miles from the Kemah boardwalk and roughly 30 miles from Galveston and Houston. The park is not on the freeway or a busy road like some private parks, which means it is quite and peaceful. Another advantage of Kemah RV Resort is that you are minutes away for lots of fun things to see and do. The park is set among some talk oak trees and is clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Amenities and Fun Things To Do:

Kemah RV Resort has 106 sites with a mixture of primitive (no water and electricity) and full hook ups (water, electricity, and sewer) with 30 and 50 amp including a mixture of back-in, pull through, and premium sites. Prices in October 2006 ranged from $27 to $37 per night. All of the sites are level with concrete pads - the downside is that they are very close together and there are no picnic tables.

The Park also has fully furnished cabins with a screened in porch that sleep between 2 and six people. They rent for $69 to $89 per night with weekly and monthly reduced prices available.

Some of the other amenities include: a pool, shower, laundry room, cable and wireless, surveillance cameras, and a community center.

For fun in the park you can fish in any of the three ponds stocked with perch and bass, relax or socialize in the gazebo between two of the ponds, swim in the pool, or hang out in the community center (free coffee and donuts on the weekends) and watch TV, play games, or get to know your neighbors.


A Typical Texas Outsider Day:

You stay at Kemah because you want to explore the local area -- Kemah, Clear Lake, Seabrook, Galveston, Houston -- and enjoy all the fun things to see and do. On this trip, we spent Friday night enjoying the restaurants and bars on and near the Kemah Boardwalk. Saturday we biked around Kemah and attended the local event which was a street fair with steel drum bands, arts and crafts, and food. Kemah always has some type of activity on the weekends. You can visit Thank God for Weekends to learn more about what all we did on this trip.

Texas Outside Campground Rating System

Texas Outside uses a tough rating scale and it’s difficult for a campground to get a “10”.  Each park is rated on:

  • Scenic Beauty: a campground that is flat with no trees or character gets a “1” and hills, lots of trees, beautiful lake site, and lush ground cover gets a “10”
  • Park Condition:  the cleaner, well kept, and maintained campgrounds receive high scores
  • Amenities: we are looking for lots of amenities like restrooms, dump stations, playgrounds, boat ramps, shelters, concession stand, rental toys, and more.
  • Campsites:  low scores are given for sites that are right next to each other (good for getting to know your neighbors, but not what we’re looking for when we’re camping); have no lantern holder, no water or electricity, no fire pit, no grill, or no picnic table (or it’s rotten wood); have no trees and no view; the ground cover is crushed rock (my bare feet hate that stuff!); and they require a lot of work to get your rig level.
  • Things To Do: Bonus points are given for campgrounds that offer lots of fun things to do at the park or very nearby – this includes: biking, hiking, climbing, boating, entertainment, golf, swimming, fishing, volleyball, horseshoes, and more
