Great place to spend the day. Multiple hiking routes to customize distance. Great scenery. Can even rent paddle boats to spend some time on the water. Just don't swim in the lake...there are a lot of alligators. Probably should keep your dogs on a leash...More

We enjoy going out to the state park and putting our kayak in the water. If we stay overnight we like the shelters unless the grandparents bring out the camper.

Had a wonderful weekend at this state park, probably the prettiest we’ve been to in Texas. Stayed in one of the shelters with a/c which was perfect for early summer. We had site 19 which is definitely the nicer of the two upgraded shelters. One...More

The park looks great right now with all of the foliage coming in for the Spring. Good fishing spots right from the back of our RV spot. Lots of nice trees for shade.

Beautiful state park on a lake with two separate camping areas. There were several fishing piers throughout the park, great fishing! Several hiking/biking trails through hardwood forests and around the lake. Campsites had grills, fire rings, electric and water. Bathrooms/showers were very clean.

Nice lakes, trails and park. Good place to get away. This is a nice property. It is somewhat plain compared to other state parks such as Lost Maples, Brazos Bend, Enchanted Rock, or Palo Duro Canyon. But it is a decent place to get outdoors...More

Have camped here many times in both a tent and a camper. We love it. Plenty of space between sites. Restrooms are always very clean. Staff is very nice. Plenty to do. Highly recommend.
