We are a family of four and camped over the weekend in our travel trailer. We stayed in site 17 in the full hookup area. The camp site was nice with a view of the wooded area from our camper and not to close to others. The table was a little far away but we didn't use it anyway. We... More

Goliad State Park is a wonderful place for RVing. They have pull through sites with full hookups that are generously spaced with plenty of natural beauty. The park also offers tent camping and screened shelters. In addition, they have an historic mission onsite with a Park Ranger available to education and answer questions. The staff was very helpful in planning... More

You might think you are in Mexico. The artwork in the church is remarkable. The mission is also beautiful. The displays tell the story of the town.

This mission is less famous than others, but well worth a visit. Plan to take at least an hour to walk around the grounds and visit the chapel. Goliad is a charming town as well, so be sure to include a visit to the square while you are here.

Camping here in a motorhome, pulling a car....easy access paved pull-through sites! Lots of personal space outside of our site area, nice concrete pad under picnic table, shade trees. We are here for 2 weeks. I am a speed walker, loving all the paved trails, and paved roads winding through this large park making it enjoyable to walk 7-8 challenging... More

We stayed on site 19. It was a level, full hook up, paved pull through. The site was clean with a picnic table. The staff was helpful and friendly. We could see the mission from our site and the Presidio is a short walk through the park. Goliad has a clean, safe laundromat, a few restaurants and even a veterinarian... More

Pulled our 44 foot fifth wheel into an enormous pull-thru site. Water (excellent taste), 50 amp shore power, and sewer hookup were provided. Only a smattering of other campers in the loop. We walked our two dogs down a trail, cut into the brush and discovered a wild bird feeding station covered with colorful birds. Overhead, dozens of hawks soared... More

We had not visited this park and decided to take the camper. We choose the cheaper camping loop and that was a mistake. It is literally a giant parking lot and not attractive at all. Plus a lot of people used it as extra parking for picnicking so it was hard to get our camper in. However, we did enjoy... More

It is a quiet getaway and a chance to experience some of the forgotten historic places of Texas. Both the fort and the mission are well maintained, informative, and very scenic. A good place to learn, enjoy the quiet, or do some photography. While the San Antonio Rive in downtown San Antonio is a great place for drinking and dining,... More
