    Friday May 27th - Monday May 30th at Goliad State Park, Karankawa Loop. Elec/Water/Sewer and Pull-thru sites $25/Night.


    Only 10 Sites Available as of today and many on the other loop which is some distance away and a parking lot. There are 5 screened shelters on the Karankawa loop as well. See Map below


    The missions are beautiful and the on-site museum has recently been renovated. Interpretive and regular trails, Tons of history all around, Playground, Big swimming pool across the street, Guided tours. River fishing. The downtown is really neat. Im sure there will be market days or some festival that weekend as well. We are really looking forward to getting back there.


    Of course we will make this an official rally if we get 5 rigs, but no biggie if we don't . We are going nonetheless and would love for anyone to come and enjoy it with us. Im sure there will also be a rally further north later in the summer. Below is a little fun you can have in the armory on-site.

    Count us in. Me+DW+2 little kids. We've got our reservations booked starting the week before. Going to be a shortened camping season due to the new addition to our family later in the year so we have to get all of our camping in early.

    Only three more reservations needed to make this an official rally...

    Thats Great and Welcome!


    We are looking forward to camping in a State Park and not have to use our big blue boy for gray water, but I won't "need" to use my new reverse lights and the camera in my pup bumper to get in the site since they are pull-thrus. I may have to make it complicated when we arrive so I can. [LOL]


    Some pics of the last trip. Sites 16 and 18 on the map above IIRC

    Downtown Goliad is an great old store called "Mae's Ice Creme and Soda Shoppe" where my youngest had her first taste of ice cream. Below is the "taste" and right after swallowing.

    Word of advice. It shouldnt be too hot in May but the main reason we were at the ice cream shop in the pic above was because we got a "no shade over the pup" (seating was fine) site in July with high humidity and 99 degrees. We had PUGs but no reflectix at the time and it was just too hot inside the pup. The 13.5K AC couldnt keep up. We went back the next weekend with same weather for a kid swap with the grandparents, with reflectix in the bunk windows, and the pup was nap-worthy mid-day.

    We are in! Already made our reservations. Goliad was one of our first trips in our pup. It was so cool they showed a Disney movie on the side of the mission one night. It is a beautiful and peaceful park, so I am so glad we are going back. Thanks for organizing Ryanincc.

    Hey all! Got my Memorial reservation made Fri-Tues. Out of school Friday midday for the summer. Whoo-hoo!
    Thanks Ryan for the heads-up. I have never camped here. They had 7 sites left at 9:00 pm tonight, and mine leaves 6.
    Hope it becomes a rally.
    See you at I B Magee in March too.

    Based upon recent postings, I'd check with ChocoChock01 and see if they know. Other than that it seems that other rallies that would normally become official just stick to the "rallies being planned" section for the moment. They'll either get to it in time or not. Not a big deal either way.

    4 sites left on the Karankawa Loop as well as the 5 screened shelters as of this post.

    I guess we need to start the discussion on the rally name and potluck/s?

    How bout Veterans' Weekend Rally. If you served you don't have to set your pup up or down (or lots of help) or cook anything, well except for Txbum. He cooks waaaay to well to let him off the hook.

    Did I mention I was in the Navy? HAH!

    Name could be confused with Veteran's Day in November.

    Personally I think you've already picked a decent name, maybe just shorten it a bit.

    I do like the quick topic change to discussing food though...
