The park is clean. In November, it is quiet.
The staff are extremely helpful, welcoming and accommodating. The sites are big. Many are quite private. Others are open and would be great if a family or group want separate sites but close visually. The campground has a boat launch and frontage on the bay for fishing and birding. It is a flat bike ride to Big Tree, an ancient and humongous Live Oak that is more than 1000 years old. It is also only 10 minutes to the marina where you would meet Captain Lori Sims for a pre-dawn departure on your Aransas Bay Birding Tour so you get to sleep a little longer than getting a similar tour that originates in Rockport (30 minute drive).
There are 2 downsides to Goose Island State Park. Mosquitoes and extremely humid bathrooms. Mosquitoes are unavoidable and signs at the park office warn you about them as it welcomes you. The bathrooms have no fans exhausting the air. By the time you finish your shower and dry off, you are wet again. But don't let these keep you from camping at Goose Island State Park.
