Great historic site. Shady trails, too, along the river. We stayed at site 14. It looks like number 17 and number 19 are real shady.
This Texas State Park is located in Goliad Texas. This is in the south central area of the state between Victoria and Austin on Highway 183. The park has some great historical sites including a 16th century Spanish mission. The campground is situated along the San Antonio River. You can kayak along the 6 mile long kayak paddle trail or try your luck at fishing. The campground is well maintained and offers a nice range of sites from tent to RVs and small cabins. The sites are located along the river with no privacy. They have some walk in tent sites as well. The town of Goliad is a hidden gem with a rich history and some cool antique shops and cafes. We plan to stop again here on our next trip to the coast.
We are in site 17. A little uneven but pull through and lots of shade around the fire pit. Mission is beautiful. For being a small park they have several activities.
I would recommend going into town and checking out all of the shops. There are a lot of eclectic items for sale.
This campground has loops for travel trailers and test sites. It has pull-through, shaded sites. It is a clean campground with a relaxed atmosphere. We have camped here many times and have enjoyed each trip. Recommend going during Rio Rio.
Each site is very spacious. Lots of trees and shade for South Texas. Bathrooms were ok. Lots of bugs but clean.
Goliad is next to a historic site for Texas history. The river is beautiful and during the spring time there are tons of blue bonnets that bloom.
We stayed in a sheltered site in mid-April 2018. We hired 2 sites for 2 families but only used one of the shelters as they were large enough for us to share.
Shelters are unable to be locked as the fire wardens had deemed it a safety hazard as peole could be locked inside, so all external brackets have been removed. Fair enough.
Our site was nice and shady and really close to the toilet and showers (which were clean and always had paper).
The sheltered site have power and water…plus a ceiling fan inside which is fabulous to keep bugs off food (if you leave the door open or you have kids constantly in & out!)
There is a small playground for the kids - perfect for our ages (3,5 &7).
We did a trail walk one day with was lovely through the trees, but a bit hard to find the opening/start due to the map being different to the grass mowing.
The Spanish mission church and building bear the checking station was a nice touristy thing to do.
We also saw some leaf cutter ants doing their thing. Very interesting why they do it - look it up on google!!!
It’s great if you’re close to San Antonio. We learned a lot about the mission which is a must see
