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.

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

Sure you will find a grill but not sure if it will be clean enough to cook a steak on it!

The swimming area is fenced off! The alligators read and heed the warning signs!
