  • This is a little piece of outdoor paradise, close to home. My family and I love to come here and camp as well as use the day facilities. This place is family fun for every one.

  • This is a very nice small state park, about an hour outside Dallas. There's a nice beach, a wooded camping area, and functional boat ramp. The lake itself has a lot of standing timber to hold fish. It...  more »

  • The swimming hole was nice, wish there was more than one. Visited this park from Rowlett so it was a little out of the way and was bummed out that there was a entrance fee to just be there for the day, but I guess all State Parks require an entrance fee. Very quiet and not too crowded when I visited on a Saturday afternoon.
  • Hidden treasure in East Texas. About an hour from dfw. A relatively small state park with only a few trails. But, there are great primitive walk in camp sites. All are about a 3/4 mile hike but, it is well worth it. They all are right on the lake and provide great views of the lake and the night sky. The lake is a great fishing lake with plenty of largemouth bass, catfish. And perch to catch. If you're planning to bring a boat, keep in mind that there is a 50 boat maximum on this lake.
  • Shaded and wooded campsites gave us a sense of privacy and they are all like this. Super friendly staff. The small flood control lake belongs to the park and is managed for crappie and bass fishing, especially important during drought and flooding conditions. Stayed five weekdays and enjoyed every minute. No downside even in the rain.
  • Small and not as heavily trafficked as other campgrounds. The camping spots have plenty of trees and are not right on top of each other. This is also supposed to be an awesome fishing spot if that's your thing
  • Good state park. Clean bathrooms, very hot showers, campsites in excellent condition. Kind of a small lake, but hey Texas isn't exactly known for its lakes. No-wake lake with lots of stumps, so don't expect to go water skiing. However, it was a great lake for canoeing or fishing. Most of the primitive sites are right on the water.
