Goose Island

State Park - Texas

Goose Island State Park is located north of the city of Rockport, Texas on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. The park is surrounded by both St. Charles and Aransas Bays. The park is home to "The Big Tree", a Southern live oak (Quercus virginiana), thought to be over 1000 years old. It has a circumference of 35 feet (11 m), is 44 feet (13 m) in height and has a crown spread of 90 feet (27 m). Although it is located on the seashore, there is no designated swimming area at the park, as the shoreline consists of concrete, oyster shell, mudflat, and marsh grass. Instead, the main park activities include camping, birding, fishing, and boating.
