Description

Get the full hook-up at Jacales or Karankawa Campgrounds! Here you have access to 20, 30, and 50-amp hook-ups, a group dining shelter, restrooms and showers, and the Junior Olympic Swimming Pool so you can perfect that front stroke before hitting the San Antonio River. Campsites include a picnic table, and are trailer and motorhome-friendly! The San Antonio River is a soothing soundtrack when you stay at Vaquaro or Longhorn Campground Camp Areas. Here, your amenities are few - water, a fire ring, picnic table, and nearby restrooms - but what more do you need when you’re in the great outdoors? Maybe some s’mores, definitely s’mores.

There's not a whole lot to do in the park it can be walked through in a day but the town has a brewery that was really neat and kids are welcome! Also you will have to check their website they do paddling trips on the San Antonio river that runs through the park I believe twice a year.

This is a view of one campsite that had two tents. If you want a campsite when you pull into the karankawa campground you want the sites on the right hand side it has a lot more shade! We stayed in 5 and other family in 3.This is the park at the brewery in goliad they also have a nature trail games and live music!

At Jacales loop, all sights are pull through and have full hookups with sewer. The other loop is way back in the woods at a sort of parking lot without sewer hookups and backup sites. The museum and especially the interpretive trail past the museum are awesome

I recently spent a weekend at Goliad State Park, tent camping in the Longhorn section. The stars are magnificent and worth the trip on their own. I spotted a bat, an owl, a hawk, and lots of other birds. The bathrooms were clean, and there are showers in the park. Park staff patrol regularly, and I enjoyed my encounters with the hosts. Site 8 is large, but there isn’t a lot of flat ground. Shared water supply is available between sites 9 & 10. A trail entrance falls between sites 8 & 9, so be prepared for light foot traffic. You should also be prepared for constant highway noise, as state highway 183 is nearby. Worth the trip, especially if you enjoy TX history, due to historic sites in the park. Minutes from town for supply runs.
