Thank you for your recent visit and review of our park. Unfortunately, water & electric campsites are fairly close together as they had to be built on a small hill above the floodplain of the creek. Primitive tent campsites are more spaced out along the...More

We drove through this park, hoping to find a place too camp close to our home. The park has extensive hurricane damage that has not repaired. Unless you are a boater/fisherman, there is no pier or good bank fishing. This use to be a beautiful...More

Thank you for your recent visit to the park. Currently, only the walk-in tent campsites are still closed for repairs from recent flooding-all other facilities are open. All repairs from Hurricane Rita (2005) and Hurricane Ike (2008) were completed several years ago. Note-it will take...More

Village Creek State Park is not known for its spacious camp sites, but they're serviceable. , if a bit too close together. The bathrooms were SO CLEAN!! It's not often you get a state park with such clean restrooms. We did some kayaking, and a...More

We managed to get the last site on a holiday weekend and realized why... as well as why no one we talked to had heard of it. This is a very small campground with only about 20 sites. All which are very close to each...More

Wife and I stayed at this park and had some decent camp sites that were close to each other, but enough trees and brush between the sites to give some seclusion feeling. After our trip, we itched for a week due to red bug (chitters)...More

What a treat this State Park is. It's right in the middle of a small town that has absolutely everything you'd need yet feels remote. The creek is great for canoeing or kayaking. There's a nice cabin, RV spots, and remote tent sites plus regular...More

Taking a canoe or kayak down village creek is a treat. Many white sand bars to stop and enjoy. Village Creek is beautiful.

We did a canoe trip at village creek on Saturday. When we stopped at a sand bar and friend and I were bitten multiple times by a flying bug about an inch or so. I can't figure out what these bugs were because they moved so fast and were only attacking our feet. My friend said that they looked like large grasshoppers, but I couldn't get a good look at them. Their bites do not look like mosquitoes (red bumps), but look like a swollen red area with undefined lines. They only itch a little and feel like someone is pitching you with their nails. It burns right after they bite you. The top of my foot is red all over and only swollen in the area I was bit. I have not been itching. You can see a mark where I was stung if you look closely. Do you know what type of bugs these are? And how to prevent from being bitten in the future? I did have bug spray on.
