Discover Goose Island State Park, TX

About ten miles north of Rockport, resting on 320 acres on the southern edge of Lamar Peninsula, is Goose Island State Park. The coastal terrain is diverse and consists of shell ridge and marshland. However, despite the coastal location, there's no swimming area here. Guests can still enjoy the water while kayaking, canoeing, or fishing.

Although Goose Island is modest in size, camping with an RV is still an option for visitors, as the park has several campsites. The park’s main attraction, as well as a central part of its history, is The Big Tree. This centuries-old rooted sentry was crowned a State Champion Coastal Live Oak back in 1966. As you stroll through the woods and prairies of the park’s mainland, make sure you pay The Big Tree a visit and take a picture.

Around 20 and 25 miles away from the park are Aransas Pass and Ingleside respectively. If you plan to book an RV in Aransas County, consider these two locations along with Rockport due to their proximity to the park.

Getting Outdoors

Goose Island State Park camping offers a chance to enjoy the area's soothing atmosphere and spend quality time with your family. It's also the perfect opportunity to see what the park has to offer and participate in different activities.

Given the proximity to the coast, as well as the abundant and diverse marine life, anglers come here quite frequently to fish. All you need is your fishing gear and a few minutes to consult the fishing tip sheet regarding harvest regulations. Boats are optional, as you can fish right from the shore. As far as the aquatic game goes, you can catch catfish, black and red drum, multiple species of flounder, spotted seatrout, and even some shark species like sharpnose, blacktip, and bonnethead.

The best way to explore the park is to go hiking or sign up for the ranger program. During the hike, guests tend to observe wildlife, mainly birds, and take pictures of The Big Tree. Around 300 bird species fly here to roost, and you can even see the endangered whooping crane, which is the tallest bird in North America. As for mammals, you'll likely spot raccoons, squirrels, armadillos, foxes, and white-tailed deer on your excursions. Finally, you can explore the park while paddling along the coast, and you can even do it with a ranger as your guide.
