  • Stopped by here after visiting the Caddo Mounds a few miles away. This is a very nice State Park!! Campground is well kept. A new entrance and visitor's center are under construction. Would like to re...  more »

  • This park is near our home so it makes a great weekend camp location. We stayed in spot 10. When we arrived, after dark, we accidentally hit a tree driving into our spot that hangs over the entrance. ...  more »

  • Went here with my boy scout troop and had a great time. The restrooms were well cleaned and the whole area felt great and comfortable. Totally recommend for any family or troop to come out here and stay a while.
  • We generally love to camp at State parks, however, maybe we chose the wrong time to visit this one. The RV sites were not level, and the platforms were in disrepair. When we arrived we were greeted by a note on the office wall that there was no electricity anywhere in the park. The bath houses had no lights or hot water. We could not use the water hook up at our site to refill our fresh water tank because the line pressure was too strong for our rig. We never would have guessed we would need to travel with a pressure reducer for water hook up. Disappointed.
  • Just drove around to see the place. Great location. The camping spots look great. Will be coming back to camp soon.
  • Recently participated in their New Year's Day hike and plan to make it an annual event. Seems like this park has made a few improvements since my visit a few years back. A nice little gem in East Texas.
  • This was my second trip here and I absolutely love this park. There are nice elevation changes that makes for a great hike. They are currently expanding and I can't wait to explore the new trails. The Ranger is always a pleasure to speak with and very knowledgeable about all the park has to offer and upcoming events. This place holds a lot of history with the old Rice Home and the Spanish Mission. I can't believe some idiot actually broke one of these ancient windows. Really disappointing people. Come on let's respect our heritage and nature as well. This place is always quite and you can enjoy hours of solitude beneath the towering pines.
