We would like to winter in Texas in Feb and March maybe Mid Jan also.

Would like to spend no more than $500 per month. Any suggestions for warm weather near Galveston?

Thank you

You'll need to go further south to ensure warm temperatures. Try the RGV area. Mission, Weslaco, Brownsville. Lots of RV parks in your price range.

I have never been to this park but I did a small search for parks in south Texas. Reel Chill RV Resort in Rockport had availability. I wasn't sure what type of RV you had or the length so I typed in Fifth Wheel and 42 feet in length. They had availability. from January 16 through March 30

Not much available. You might look in the Baycliff, League City or San Leon area.

Quintana is closed due to hurricane damage

We spent the month of Oct taking a look at RGV for the upcoming winter (Jan-Apr). Weather charts shows average Jan temp to be at least 10 degress warmer than Galveston. I'm amazed at the number of parks in RGV. You can barely drive 5 minutes without stumbling over one. Using Camppground Reviews and filtering only ratings above 7.0 we narrowed it down to a dozen or so. We settled on Canyon Lake and they were having a 4 for 3 sale (pay for 3, get 4 months). Brought the price down to 350ish.

On a side note, when we left RGV, we stopped at Magnolia Beach (slightly north of Corpus) for a few nights. Magnolia is rather famous for free beachfront camping. Camped a few feet from the water, it was special. Due to it being November, crowds were minimal. Also, no hookups, but for a couple of nights, it was terrific.
