Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 28 be careful of hairy caterpillars
White-marked tussock moth caterpillars were abundant during our April 2014 visit. Touch or any exposure to the little hair spines caused severe allergic reactions in several group members. Rashes appeared on back, stomach, arms, and neck. Treatment with antihistamine creams provided limited relief. Rashes lasted several days. Washing with soap and water did not help and may have spread the exposure. The hairy spines can become airborn. Also squashing bug may result in hairy spines becoming embedded in wood of picnic tables. Caterpillars drop from trees, so they are difficult to avoid. People who have asthma should be especially cautious.
February 21 A Very Beautiful State Park by Bette & Rex Wagoner
My wife and I visited Goose Island State Park this past Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012, and we loved it. It is one of the better parks which we have visited.
October 29 Wildlife everywhere by Nate
I grew up in Aransas Pass and Rockport,TX. Goose Island is THE place to fish and crab and oyster when it is permitted. The area should be protected for its ecologic environment suitable for our wild life to generate and grow.
September 26 It is a good place to fish.
you can catch a lot of speckled trout and redfish and drum. It is amazing
