I hesitated to review this park because I don't want a large increase in visitors to take away from the serenity of the park. It really is a jewel for hiking and camping. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I.

We love camping here & visit at least 2 times every year for the past 15+ years. Beautiful, hilly, piney woods. We like to rent the stand up paddle boards from the park store & REALLY love the spring- fed lake.

It's not that big but has the East Texas beauty of pine trees, some hard woods and a lake. Simple, natural and basic park. Easy to get around. Good but basic campsites. Camp sites are from open air and the ground to covered, screened cabin/room...More
