Emergency & Safety

* If you need to call 911, and time allows, please call the office so the manager can be prepared to escort the emergency personnel to your site. * If you observe any activity you believe to be of concern, call 409-225-2020, 24 hours a day. * Emergency Contact Information forms are required from all monthly guests. This information remains private and used only when a situation arises when we need to contact someone in the event of an emergency or is sought by law enforcement agencies.

We read a LOT of reviews prior to booking and they were all very complimentary of the staff and grounds. They were spot on about the staff! They couldn't have been nicer and accommodating to us with our special request to turn backwards so we could face our friends as we camped. However, as seasoned campers (20 years) - the sites lacked a lot to be desired. The spaces are entirely too close together. The neighbors septic is so close if you use an outdoor rug it is at it or has to go over their septic hose. We were turned around so we of course didn't keep our septic out because it would have been in our gathering area... but our friends septic was right at the outdoor rug of the "on site" rental unit behind them. Staff asked us if it wasn't any trouble for them to not stay hooked up to the sewer so that it wouldn't be an issue with their renters, but our friend wasn't having it. His sentiment, "We paid for a "full hook up" and we should be able to have a "full hook up"!"... he's not wrong. So in closing... nice folks for sure... for campers with your own RV, we wouldn't recommend it. But those wanting a night or two in a rental, I guess its ok if you don't mind having a sewer hose at your front door and another camper 8 feet in front of you.

Arianne Robichaux

Such a quaint and secluded place!!! We thoroughly enjoyed the easy accessible to pull our camper through....kayaks and dock for crabbing/fishing!! Thank you so much!!!

Larry McDonald

Nice views for sure. Unfortunately it was extremely windy which tested the integrity of the trailer. The trailer rocked very badly in the wind and all vent hood seals are broken causing EXTREMELY LOUD BANGING NOISE at night. Of course this prevented us from sleeping. I notified Dave of this issue and hopefully it will be corrected so future tenants won’t suffer like we did. In addition, there were mouse droppings in the kitchen drawers so we couldn’t put any of our belongings away. Again, I notified Dave about this issue and he stated it was most likely due to the recent cold weather and he also stated other trailers had the same issues.I feel if renters are being charged a cleaning fee, these are things we shouldn’t be finding in the kitchen drawers or anywhere else for that matter. We paid a cleaning fee for the next customer and hopefully it will be CLEANER than we found it. We know it wasn’t throughly cleaned because there were baby toys left in the bedroom (we threw away) and poop in the toilet from the previous renters. Not acceptable. That issue along prevented my daughter from using the toilet. In addition to the floors being absolutely filthy, the reclining chair and loveseat are completely worn out and disgusting to sit on, the mattress on the queen bed is completely worn out and the pullout bed in the loveseat is completely shot. Due to the bed issues, we had to purchase an air mattress to sleep on. After I explained these issues to Dave, he told me he had air mattresses we could have used but we were unaware of this option. Dave also offered to give me some free firewood for our troubles but I had brought my own wood from home. Hopefully the other trailers are in better shape than this one. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend staying here due to our experience. Sorry. Larry&Julie McDonald

Campground Response

Hi Larry & Julie, I do apologize for the problems that you had during your stay. Unfortunately, you caught us at a very bad moment. Our cleaning person had been doing a good job, but then she had some personal problems and it reflected in her work. So when you notified me about the problem with the camper, we had to let her go. But now we have a new husband and wife team that are doing much better and I am inspecting the campers also to make sure that this doesn't happen again. If you do decide to come back and give us another try, I will be happy to let you stay in our best camper for free! Thanks, David

Awesome!! First off park host Erin and Jay are great! Hailey’s Beach & Bay is clean, well kept, good water pressure. The location is perfect for birding, fishing, beach, or just watch the sunset/sunrise. Stayed for a week. Everyone is friendly! We’ll be back. See you later friends.

Elaine Siemsen

A nice campground. Not really an RV resort. Disappointed with the wifi because we had been counting on it for work. Staff was really great and helpful.

Richard Rodriguez

Robert Kave

Owners and camp hosts were the best! Stayed a month-very close to water with lots of birds. Very peaceful!!

Michael Griffin

Only stayed one night but very nice park

Cassandra Johnson

Good: quiet and peaceful. Lots of birds to see. Level. WiFi is slow but usually works eventually for surfing the net, not for streaming. Bad: Not enough gravel so there was mud and standing water when it rained right outside our door. On a canal was pretty but the mosquitoes made it impossible to sit outside.

Laura Honeywell

Fell in love with this little place. Can't wait to come back!

Marfelia Castillo

We had an amazing time can't wait to go back

Sharon Clary

We stayed in the bunkhouse last weekend. It was a nice trailer and had all the amenities. This is a great place to stay! Cold A/C, grill and picnic table outside was great also! I would recommend staying here.

Helen Susan Mangum

Great to stay and relax. My husband did fishing and crabbing. We also was able to go to the beach 5 minutes away.

Susan Hubbard

The owner to this place is extremely nice and has three RV's for rent. However, our RV had a good sized leak when it rained and several items we had got wet. Also the floor in the RV was weak and we were afraid of stepping on it in certain places and the grass needed to be mowed.

Alyssa Harrington

Great new park!!! The owners have big plans for the future, I look forward to watching them grow.
