Would we recommend?
- Hiking: Goliad State Park has several hiking trails that offer a variety of difficulty levels and scenic views of the park. The longest trail is the 2.1-mile scenic loop trail that winds through the park’s oak and mesquite trees. We hiked the river trail and detoured to visit Presido la Bahia.

- Canoeing and kayaking: Visitors can bring their own canoes or kayaks to paddle along the San Antonio River, which runs through the park.
