The waterfront sites are mostly water only, but there is a large section that is new and has full hookups. All of these sites are pull through. There is a city pool across the street. This is a big Texas Hispory town "Remember Goliad" There are many museums and historical things to see in the area, including a restored mission right at the state park. There is a trail that takes you right from the park to the town square. Goliad had many antique shops and a beautiful courthouse. The second saturday of every month during the summertime is "Market days" about 200 vendors set-up on the Court house square. We really enjoyed this state park. Life seems to move a little slower in Goliad, Texas.
There are wooded sited in the back under the most beautiful Live oak trees you have ever seen, but it is difficult to drive a big rig through this area. The premium sites are right on the bay-no shade trees here, but each site has a covered picnic table. With a little maneuvering, any size rig can park right on the bay. It's almost like 2 parks in one. A wonderful sunset, beautiful pelicans, and plenty of room between sites. Would be a 10 if they had sewer. Very friendly staff.
This a Cameron county park as well as Isla Blanca Park. Isla Blanca is on the south end of the island, and Andy Bowie is on the north end. This park was a parking lot for people to access the beach, and they turned one half of it into an RV park. It is just a Parking lot with hook-ups at the back of the site, but it is quite and really private. The beach was not very busy on this end of the island. The sites are just over the sand dunes to the beach (about 100 yards) There are 2 bath houses, one for the campers, and the other is for day use. My biggest complaint was the driveway getting into the park was very sharp and with a big rig your tires will rub the curb. This was obviously not designed for use by RV's when it was built. Once inside, we really enjoyed our stay. The park workers clean the beach daily of any sea weed that washes up. We really enjoyed our stay at this park. The water and sand were very beautiful. Lots of things to do around town, Brownsville, Mexico, Port Isabelle lighthouse, etc.
We have camped at many state parks, and this is my favorite. I would give them a 10, but they don't have 50 amp or sewer. The sites are large, and spread out. Nice playground, very large park, and great bike riding. There are heards of deer that will wonder right through your campsite during the morning and afternoon. It is a very relaxing place. Extremely friendly staff (friendlier than most state parks). We love lake Texana state park!
Very old campground and needs a lot of maintenance. Nice views of the bay and causeway. Waterfront sites were $28 and others were $25. I was charged 3.00 more for 50 amp service and when I got to the site it was only 30amp. I stayed, and at midnight we threw a breaker, only it was not the breaker at the site, it must have been a main breaker located somewhere else. The manager was not on site. We had to pick up camp and move to another site at 1am. They were kind enough to give me a $3.00 refund (50 amp fee) for my troubles and let me have a late check out. (check out is at 11am). The campground seemed to be mostly long-termers. The campground is extremely close to the Lexington and the Aquarium (<5 minutes) and is an OK place to stay while visiting down town. However, I would never go back.
