Early Spring get away

Early spring 21 just went and had a blast. Fairly packed now that the state opened up fully. Over all though that time was perfect weather for kayaking and hiking the short trails that this park has. Tent camping is great and the spots are well payed out with plenty of space between them. Shower and bathroom facilities are in decent shape and do the job. Was impressed for havi g never heard of it prior to arrival. Online reservations available to make it easier.

Great State Park

Well maintained park, close to Presidio and Goliad downtown. Nice bike trail and paddle destination.

Nice and quiet.

We stopped for the night on the way into North Padre Island. It was a perfect stop after a long day of driving. The sites are large and well spaced. With 50 amp power and water at each site as well as a dump station at the entrance, it has all we need. And it was fun listening to an owl just after sunset.

Fun Weekend

Camped with all 5 of our little ones, great campground, staff was friendly and helpful and the store right by the park gates sells hard wood firewood for a decent price

Quiet and beautiful

I feel I got kind of lucky to find this beautiful weather spaces spot full hookup may come by once a week to empty your tanks

Nice experience

Camped in non electric site, right by 75 acre reservoir. Good birdwatching, walking trails. Only ones camping here. Electric sites full up. Flush toilets, no showers, covered tables. $22 for 2 which include admission fees.

Overused and it shows it

Pros:

• Super friendly Park Headquarters personnel

l• Great aluminum floating fishing pier with a covered fish cleaning pavilion

• Site aluminum picnic table on concert pad under a tree

• Park entrance gate closed 10 pm to 7 am, but an access code was provided at check-in

• Toilet/shower clean, but just worn out and desperately needing renovation

• Great CCC-constructed pavilion

• 3 bars AT&T cell service

• Howling coyotes nightly 

Cons:

• Overused park that desperately needs some infrastructure improvements

• Unlevel side-to-side concert site parking pad was in poor condition and barely long enough for 28 ft trailer

• Septic system cleanout pipe smack in the middle of our campsite causing a tripping hazard

• Metal fire pit with cooking grate was overflowing with ash upon arrival

• No vegetation between sites= no privacy from neighbors

• Constant vehicle traffic through campground loop• Toilets were difficult to flush and clogged easily.

• Toilet/shower building interior walls crumbling exposing the structure

Goliad state park

I’m from Goliad, so whenever I feel like getting outdoors I can just drive 15 minutes down the road to the park and enjoy a day hike or a weekend out in the woods. The park is awesome lots of Historic sites and lots of history in such a small town. The park has Tent sites, small cabins for rent and restrooms with showers that are always clean. They also have RV hook ups with plenty of room and shade trees. The nature trail is nice too. Definitely recommend for anyone that has not visited before.

Nice SP in SE Texas Good lake but beware of hydrilla! July 2020

Overall, Choke Canyon SP is a nice park.  Large footprint in southeast Texas between San Antonio and Corpus Christi.  Good trails overall, however, could use better markings at trail intersections.  Choke Canyon Reservoir is large and the area we were at had very little motorized boat traffic, which made it great for kayaking.  That could be attributed to the low lake level and the overgrowth of hydrilla.  Saw a lot of wildlife, rabbits, deer, coyotes, alligators, many fish species, many birds and a sounder of hogs.  Sites are well kept and the boat ramp is large and long.  Could easily launch/recover up to 4 boats at once.  Lots of places to fish from the banks and jettys (but due to low lake levels, some are not accessible).  Will definitely return some day.

Lots of bugs

The sites weren’t too bad, but there were a lot of ants and insects around that’s even more than usual. Definitely bring a tent screen. I don’t think it’s specific to the campsite as there were insects all around town, or probably due to the time of the year. Other than that, campgrounds were clean and easy to enter. Historic sites were close by and interesting.
