  • This is a terrific place to visit to see nature. I would suggest going anytime but the middle of summer like we did. The heat at times is unbearable. There is much to see here and a lot of diversity. ...  read more »
  • Staff is great, lots to do. Very educational tours. Glad that they offer the various your options to learn about the habitats and local native wildlife.

  • Rt. 77/83, take the Olmito/FM 1732 exit, travel west on FM1732 for 2.5 miles to New Carmen Ave., turn left (south) onto New Carmen Ave. State Park entrance 1.5 miles on left. April 2015 update: MUCH road construction on south park entrance. I would not suggest entering from Military Highway US 281. Use north (main) entrance as described above.
  • The park is fine. But the road to it off US 281/Military Highway is a disaster! Yeah, you can enter from the other side, but why should visitors have to go the long way around to do that? And if you live off US 281, it makes more sense to enter from that road. If you have a tank you might negotiate the axle breaking potholes---SINKHOLES!---better. Otherwise be prepared for serious repairs for wheel alignments, balancing, front end alignment or possible axle breakage. This is a monstrosity!
  • Team tour and very helpful guides
  • This Park is great if you are a bird watcher you must go to this park you will have a great time here a lot of birds to see here........
  • great state park. access was iffy, much construction on the road, but we loved the park
