Things to Do

With both beach and bay sides, Galveston Island State Park offers activities for every coast lover.

You can swim, fish, picnic, bird watch, hike, mountain bike, paddle, camp, geocache, study nature or just relax! Visit our nature center to learn more about the park and its programs.

Fish
Try your luck fishing in the bay area or beach-side. We have canoe/kayak launches and a fish cleaning station. Remember, you do not need a fishing license to fish from shore in a state park.

Hike or bike
Explore four miles of trails through the park's varied habitats. Stop at the observation platform or photo blinds, and stroll boardwalks over dunes and marshes.

Paddle
Take your kayak or canoe on one or all of our paddling trails!
