We are big fans of Texas State Parks and Goliad SP did not disappoint. The full hook up sites were very spaced, level and pull through. The staff was very helpful with our Texas history/sightseeing questions. There is so much to see from a Texas Independence standpoint in the area. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Goliad State Park is clean and surrounded by a few nice walks and trees. The Historical Sites are a quick walk away from your campsite. The park is clean and quiet. There are several nice areas to ride your bike. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We are now fans of the Texas State Park system. In the past we have avoided them because we felt the entrance fee system was unfair. Well it is unless you buy the annual Pass and use it. This was our 3rd 2 night stay in a Texas SP on this trip (we also stayed at other places) and were able to use the electronic coupons for half off the second night. Goliad SP FHU sites were flat, level, well appointed hookups, reasonably quiet and just a short walk to the Mission which was very interesting. We enjoyed the green grass and trees, due to recent rains, also lots and lots of red cardinals flitting around. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Motorhome.

Take the paved trail, or drive, into town and eat at the Hanging Tree restaurant across from the Courthouse. Be prepared to bring back a lot of "leftovers"

This was a lovely park with large pull through sites and a lawn area for each site with picnic table. Ranger talks -both historical and nature-were excellent! Nice running trails.

The mission was the highlight of the park!

Definitely return. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Spacious pull through with full hookups. Best sites on outside of camping loop. Avoid the 30A sites on backside of park, that area is a gravel parking lot. Nearby restaurants and fuel. We would stay here again. We camped at Goliad State Park 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 at Goliad State Park 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 at Goliad State Park 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 at Goliad State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have noted, there are two different RV areas in this park: one is excellent with spacious pull throughs, fire rings, and trees; the other is undesirable, basically a tightly spaced gravel parking lot. Our rating reflects a stay in the pull-through Karankawa area. Consequently, if possible, make reservations for this area, as these sites tend to fill up fast. We would have liked to stay here longer, but all sites were reserved after our week’s stay which we had reserved using the excellent Texas online reservation system. This park has no internet, but they are trying to get it. There’s lots to see around Goliad. Be sure to try the Cream of Jalapeno soup at the Blue Quail Deli and the Chili Petin Pepper, Wild Dewberry, and Wild Agarita jellies at Faye’s Texas Naturals in Goliad. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We reserved a "premium" water and electric site and found out that the premium site area is a large gravel parking lot with sites around the periphery and down the center. It's very close to the highway with much truck traffic. No shade, but the sites on the edges of the parking area have picnic tables with roofs over them. The men's bathroom had one stall and one shower for 24 sites in this area, which is 1.2 miles from the ranger station. Contrasted with this are some other sites, all pull-through, with full hookups and shade trees. I recommend you check out both camping areas before deciding. The tent sites are close to the San Antonio River, but the RV sites are not on the water. Goliad is a fascinating place for the history of Texas, with a reconstructed mission at the state park, a monument nearby to Col. James Fannin, Zaragoza's birthplace, and a Spanish Presidio. The original Texas Declaration of Independence was signed in Goliad. The Blue Quail Deli is highly recommended for lunch. Both that place and the Empresario are only open for lunches. The Hanging Tree is open for supper. Major shopping is available in Victoria, about 30 miles away on good roads. We'd stay here again when in the area. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects having the Texas State Parks Pass. If you have never been to Goliad SP you definitely owe yourself the treat of visiting one of the best parks in the state park system. Check-in at the office was painless. We were given our choice of three sites in the full-hookup, all pull-through in the Karankawa Camping area. All sites have very reliable and strong 50 amp service. Our Verizon air card signal was very weak most of the time. We didn't use the bathrooms but when I looked in the men's room it was freshly cleaned. The staff at the park go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant and informative. The walking tours of the Mission and wildlife are highly recommended. The last reviewer implied that the golf course in in the park. Not so, it's a few miles away and has very reasonable green fees. The town of Goliad is one of the friendliest places you will ever find and has more going for it that just about anywhere we have been. We came over from San Antonio for the County Fair and Rodeo, which has been rated in the top five rodeo's in the country. On the 2nd Saturday of each month is Goliad Market Days and should not be missed. Restaurants in town: The Empresario; highly recommended, especially for lunch. Blue Quail Deli; great sandwiches. La Bahia Mexican; not recommended. The Hanging Tree; good place for supper. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a great campground on the SE side of Goliad. There are other historical sites nearby in association with the State Park. The facilities are great with nicely spaced sites in the RV section. There are tent camping sites along the San Antonio River plus a large gravel parking area with camping sites around the periphery. The showers are great. There are hiking biking trails plus a very nice nature trail. The only downside was the traffic noise from the highway nearby. Traffic quieted by evening and the noise was not bothersome. We will be back for sure. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Motorhome.
