  • Large park on shores of the lake. A lot of different type sites to choose from. Staff very helpful and courteous. 
  • My kids and I visit this park often. It is a nice quiet park. We really enjoy the swimming hole. They have nice clean showers and restrooms. 
  • We've been going to this park for many years. It has been great in every season. Good campsites, good fishing, good canoe trail - everything that we enjoy. We've enjoyed the programs and demonstration...  more »

  • Beautiful state park with a really nice lake. The shelters are nice shelters with privacy, they also offer electric and water in the screened shelters. The pier was at a great location to fish. It was nice and quiet, and all around beautiful place to visit!
  • The sign entering the park should say "BEWARE OF MOSQUITOES!!!" instead of alligators. Once we got into the park, our first experience with the park staff did not go well. We had three families with the same last name of which two had reservations. The family with out a reservation was check in under one of the reservations. Then when the last family checked in, they had to pay again because their reservation had already been used. She checked in all of the families under the wrong name. Also, not sure why this park has a swim area with a 12' alligator swimming past the buoys. Most people don't realize that splashing around attract alligators. The lake is very shallow but we did have fun fishing and actually caught some fish from the bank. The forest trail was beautiful but we did not see it all because the mosquitoes ran us out. You would need a mosquito net or a LOT of Off to walk it. The campsites were very nice and flat which was excellent for tent camping. We did enjoy our camping but am still itching from all of the bites. Will remember this trip for a long time.
  • This place teams with wildlife. Everywhere I looked I saw some type of animal. From deer, to rabbits and raccoons, to alligators. There are trails for hiking and biking, even paddle trails for kayaks and canoes. Maps are available at the station that show the park and all the trails. You can bring your own kayak or canoe or rent some from the park. All staff were friendly and very helpful with all my questions. If you intend to stay the night, you can sleep in a cabin, shelter, or bring a tent, it's a peaceful atmosphere for overnight camping. The park also offers several activities, including guided tours and a nature center. The swimming area has covered tables and fire grills to host a family day out and also has an outdoor shower that offers you a chance to rinse off after swimming. Note: I witnessed an alligator enter the swimming area as darkness began to fall. I later saw a second alligator in the swimming area and another just outside the barrier. Please make sure you are out of the water before darkness falls.
  • The paddling trails are outstanding, I paddled them in a sit on top kayak. Connect the Walnut Paddling Trail to the Neches Paddling Trail for a scenic 5 mile round trip. In late July, the Neches trail is loaded up with water lilies in bloom, and I spotted many Great Egrets, Blue Herons, and Red Winged Blackbirds. There is a picturesque stretch of the Walnut Trail that is dominated by bald cypress (and shade!). There are a number of amazing waterfront campsites (water only) in the Hen House Ridge Unit of the park that allow for spectacular sunset viewing, and unbelievable stargazing in the direction over the lake.
  • Awesome camping, loved our spot. Can't wait to get back there, it's gorgeous.
