  • We did the trail which is about a mile but it only goes to a parking area then you walk back for another mile. Not very interesting. Quite prickly. $4 each person.  more »
  • This isn't the prettiest park in the Texas parks system, but if you've never hiked around cacti or rattlesnakes, you might find it interesting in a cowboy and Indian sort of mindset. Do not recommend ...  more »
  • I had signed 5 of us up to have some fun on Kayaks, we were supposed to be there at the park by 10 am. Well due to the fact that I could not get my group moving fast enough, we were one hour late. So ...  more »

  • The park is amazingly clean and the rangers are all very friendly. You can also tell they take pride in the park and what they do. The one bathroom we stayed in, the stalls didn't have locks which I personally didn't care for, but they were clean and stocked with toilet paper and hand soap. We were camping in a tent and it's my understanding that it's always windy at this park which made things like cooking and eating interesting because food would fly away. If we were in a camper, I think it would have been fine and that's why I'm rating it a 3, but the wind made it to where we probably won't go back. Just some side notes for personal preference, in the camp site areas there are very few trees so you're basically camping out in the open with everyone. We went during the week so it wasn't busy and therefore wasn't a problem for us, but just something to be made aware of. There is a playground that consists of swings and monkey bars in one campsite area that we're great for my kids and with it being wide open I could see them from my campsite with no problem.
  • The kayaking class in June was a lot of fun! Can't wait to go back during nicer weather!
  • The park rangers are the most invasive I've experienced. BOTH days i was there they knocked on my door disprupting my work day to try and get me to pay an hour early. Im guessing the office staff wanted to leave early as i was one of maybe 3 campers in the park. They didn't care or attempt to make amends. The absolute worst service ive seen in a state park. Also the bathrooms were disgusting and one of the toilets appeared to have been inoperable for lord knows how long. The fishing barge is pretty... pretty sketchy. Broken and missing floor planks down a long steep ramp because of the low water level. They trashily used wooden park signs to haphazardly patch a couple spots where small children would face a certain death. The nature around the park is beautiful but in no way should this careless staff receive credit for such beauty. It is apparent that the only objective of their job is to collect park fees. Come to think of it, the only times i saw a ranger were the times a ranger was prematurely asking for payment.
  • Wonderful experience, will definitely make this a family thing. Staff is wonderful .
  • Man. This place is a dump. I guess if ur hardcore this place is for you. But im not. I took an rv and probably the worst stay i had on my 2 week adventure. Showers, rr are disgusting.
