Rate given reflects a weekly rate with Good Sam discount, plus metered electricity used. The power here is all green, from wind, solar, and hydroelectric. The park would rate a 10 except there are no shower facilities that I am aware of, just a “powder room” in the office. The owner is extremely friendly and accommodating. We stayed here two weeks waiting for mail and packages to arrive which the owner delivered to our door as they trickled in. The owner, an RVer himself, designed the park to make spaces easy for big rigs to get into, spacious, and many shaded without interfering with satellite dishes. Unfortunately, most of the people in the park are oil workers with the Eagle Ford Shale or Winter Texans, making only a limited numbers of spaces available for those of us just passing through. Despite the presence of primarily permanent residents, the park was very quiet, clean, and tidy. The owner walked through the park daily to clean up what little trash had blown in. The internet and cable TV included in the reasonable rate were both very good. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the nicer Texas State Parks we have stayed at. We were in the pull thru section, our site was spacious, though the "curve" of the pull thru was a little tight. Other sites had much longer and flatter curves to their pull thru. There were a couple of trees at the site that gave some shade but didn't interfere with satellite reception. Easy walk to Espiritu Mission, and a short drive to the other sites in Goliad. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We traveled to Goliad to attend their monthly market day and wanted to spend some time in the state park. This is a historical park with a Spanish Mission on the grounds. The park is well maintained and the vegetation was better than we expected since Texas is in a continuing drought. The only negative we encountered was the pull-through sites were not level at all. We used three layers of "Linx Levelers" to get our rig set up. If you go to Goliad State Park, plan on at least a couple of days. There are 2 missions and an historical downtown area to explore. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The price reflects having a Texas State Park Pass. You really need to read the website description of the park RV facilities very carefully as you look at the map of the park and put the two together to get a better picture of the facilities. There are two RV camping/parking areas with several other water only tent camping sites: Jacales Camping area is water and electricity only (20/30/50) with a combination of tent and RV sites and a separate dump station. It is a combination parking lot for the tent campers and a parking space for boondockers. Don’t expect spacious accommodations. It is right beside the city run swimming pool (open June through August). The Karankawa Camping area is RV sites with full hookups (30/50 amps), but only 20 sites, so be sure to make reservations. We have a 41’ fifth wheel and had no problems fitting into the sites. The only advice would be to keep to the right as you pull up to the office to register, as you will need to make an immediate sharp left turn into the Karankawa Camp site. The trees are well trimmed for tall rigs. There are a number of nature trails for walks, which were very good for walking the dogs. The only downside to our April visit, was the caterpillar infestation; after 4 days, our roof and truck were covered in black pellets of caterpillar poo! At times it was falling so hard, it sounded like rain. Easy to sweep off when dry, but miserable to get rid of when it rains and becomes a mushy mess. We were fascinated about the history of the area, the Goliad Massacre, the first Texas Declaration of Independence in Goliad, Zaragoza’s birthplace and the Fannin Memorial. There are many historic sites to visit close to the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
