“pretty area”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The Big Tree is worth taking the time to detour off the road. And, the drive to the tree and park are very pretty. It is an interesting area.

“Goose island...”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Well worth a visit.the visitors centre has loads of information on the wild life around the area.i for one was very surprised that there was so much.goose island state park is untouched with lots of animal trails.it makes you think what the people who we're opening up Texas did to keep going from day to day.its impossible to travel though the undergrowth so you you would have had to use animal trails at best.If you have the chance to visit
Rockport stop in and say hello at
Anthony's by the sea,great great food when you stay.regards mick taylor northeast of the Uk,missing Texas and it's people.

“One of the best”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Texas has some great state parks and Goose Island is one of the best. The unique feature is the RV parking sites right on the beach front. Fishing, birding, eating great seafood in nearby Rockport, are just some of the delights. Visiting Our Lady of Schoenstatt Shrine which is in a nice neighborhood walk away from the campground is special. Enjoy.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

When we are staying in our vacation home in Rockport we always make a visit to Goose Island State park. It is a relaxing place to take a drive. I always take my camera because we often see roseate spoonbills and whooping crane families. It is definitely worth a visit, and make sure you stop to see the "big tree."

“A State Park with Class”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Great fishing peer. Great camping sites both inland and on the bay. All you need is on the grounds or a stone's throw away. Staff is awesome and one feels safe when there. Great clientele. GREAT STATE PARK. Goose Island...I will be back
