  • It was interesting but limited in viewing with the cold weather. I would like to return when it is warmer and paddling has more appeal  more »
  • The park is nice, especially for families with children as they have several nice playgrounds. Can stay overnight or just hiking during the day. Have to pay $ 4.00 to enter. At least two nice accesses...  more »
  • This is a wonderful park for camping, hiking, paddling, and just walking around. Get a good map before paddling out into this beautiful maze. Be sure to visit the Sawmill Pond for great photos.  more »

  • Amazing, the park is like nothing I have seen before. The trees in the lake are a sight to behold. There are campgrounds, trails, fishing, picnic tables, so many wonderful things to see and do. The entrance fees are very reasonable and the staff were very friendly. There are tours available as well. if you are in there area this is a place that should be on your list to visit
  • We went on a night hike with a park ranger and quite a few others. It was very interesting. Although, we could've potentially seen/heard more if people respected what they were repeatedly asked - to not talk it be loud. That never happened - but the park employee handled it very very well. I highly recommend visiting.
  • The only natural lake in Texas. Try one of the boat tours to get guided info on how the town and a famous aviator got started.
  • Beautiful!! Love this area and park. The bald cypress give it a haunting, mysterious feel. It's just really gorgeous!!
  • This is the place to be! There is always something to do at the state park. They often offer classes that engage the community with nature and some of the most educational and beautiful nature walks. You'll never regret driving around and finding some of the small mom n pop dinners, it's some of the best food in the area!
