NOTE for February through April / May: The canals are being dredged. This is much needed maintenance for the neighborhood but does present an inconvenience. You can still fish from our dock, but the fishing areas at the end of the street are closed for the duration of the construction work. They have finished work on the part of the canal behind our spot. If I learn anything else I will update this. Waterfront RV Port on Bolivar Peninsula. Water, sewer, and electric (20-30-50 amp panel) Covered RV spot with a screen porch. Property is fenced and dogs are welcome. The screened has a dining table with chairs, and also stores some patio chairs to use on the property. They are really great to sit on the dock! There is also a charcoal grill and a crab trap for you to use. (You need a fishing license and bait. Chicken bones works great!) Plenty of birding and fishing on the peninsula. Community fishing area is on the end of both Van Sant and Mabry, Mabry has a boat ramp. Beach Access via community gate at end of street. Combination for those will be shared in arrival instructions. Spot is a residential lot... It is 60 x 130. Canal City is a quiet residential area. The back side fronts on the water. You will probably see more seagulls and purple martins than people. We have weekly discounts. Message me and I can go over them because the Hipcamp platform makes them difficult. It works out to approximately 7 nights for the price of 5. Be prepared: Bolivar has mosquitoes. This is the coast. If it has rained they can be really bad. The county sprays on a regular rotation but it can be bad. They tend to swarm when you pull in. Spray helps. We also send recommendations for what sprays work best for us in the arrival instructions. We do not offer refunds for mosquitoes. We have never found them unmanageable, and the screen porch keeps them almost entirely away. We are east of Rollover Pass. Easiest to arrive through Winnie and south on 124. Unless you are coming from Galveston or southeast Houston it is probably shorter. The ferry is fun (dolphins and such) but the waits can be long. Also: Do not bring loose propane tanks or gasoline cans on the ferry, they will send you away. (Propane on RV is fine, but that is all they allow) https://www.txdot.gov/discover/ferry-boat-schedules/ferry-rules.htmlWaterfront RV port on a canal in sight of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. You will see tugboats and barges passing by. Crabbing and fishing from the dock. Beach is at the end of the street, approximately 1 mile. The RV cover fits a 34 foot trailer that is 11 feet tall. The actual height of the cover is 12 ft 3 inches at the edge of the rig. Longer rigs may stick out the front because of the decking but that is not an issue. Contact with any questions regarding size. There is a screened porch that seems to keep the mosquitoes out enough to enjoy dinner in the evening. The lot is fully fenced and pets are welcome. 50 and 30 amp RV electric and 20 amp plugs are there. City water and sewer. There is no toilet or shower on site. 10 miles from The Big Store and Crystal Beach restaurants shopping, etc. 8 miles from the High Island Audobon Birding Sanctuaries. Cancelation: Full refund up to 1 week out. After that point there is a cancelation fee of one night rent to cover prep costs.

Great for peaceful camping!
Our second stay here and it is awesome! Laid back, no noise, covered RV spot, big yard for the dogs, and now that the canal has been dredged we are catching some good Redfish off the dock! Tim is a great host and very accommodating. Neighbors are welcoming and friendly. We will be booking here again!

Quiet, peaceful place on a canal. Really convenient to the beach but just far enough away to have relaxing evenings at camp. Great host.

Great proximity to High Island birding sites for spring migration. Screened in nook was welcome relief from mosquitos. So appreciated fenced yard for our dog. Quiet street, no traffic or noise.
