  • A cold overcast day is probably not the best time to evaluate a Park. Luckily I had been there before. The visitor center has a great display of history, flora and fauna in the modern visitor center. ...  more »

  • Great spot to go for some canoe camping that feels like real back-country wilderness. You can spend a whole day exploring the waters and gazing in awe at the wonderful cypress trees growing out of it.
  • Beautiful canoeing through a Cyprus swamp. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
  • Great place to go hiking and camping. Plenty of trails for those longer hikes or just a stroll through the woods
  • Very nice State Park and Campground areas. "Fairly" remote location. If you have Verizon Cell Service, it'll be intermittent at best. Voice is more consistent. Data - if you get lucky. Closet local grocery stores are about equally 10 min away. Town of Gates (North on 37), or Town of Gatesville (South on 37)
  • Beautiful place to relax! Great hiking trails! Absolutely love it!
