  • I have been here during take last week of the year. It’s really awesome. Took a boat tour and the views are cool. Don’t miss the big cypress wall cannel view.  more »
  • Stopped by to view the state park to consider for future visits. This place is fairly secluded and very peaceful. There were not many visitors at the location due to the cold weather. We hoped to take...  more »
  • We spent a day at this park with our 2 grandchildren, ages 7 and 3. We had a great time hiking. The kids enjoyed the trails. We also rented canoes and took them out for a spin on the lake. The Ranger ...  more »

  • What a beautiful park! The staff is awesome! They have great little cabins, perfect for reunions and retreats. The cabins don't have fire rings... Bummer, if you're wanting to tell ghost stories around a campfire but there is a pedestal grill for cooking outside. The trails are nice and well kept. You can rent a canoe and paddle around the gorgeous Cypress trees. Great place to get amazing pictures. No other state park in Texas is quite like this one, unique and gorgeous. (Please give me a thumbs up if you found this review helpful.)
  • It was very peaceful and very beautiful. There are 2 boardwalks to overlook Mills Pond. The bathrooms we're lit well enough. They have canoes to rent to get some great pics between the trees in the bayou. The camping areas are very clean and the pads are covered in sand, making it more comfortable to sleep on. There are electric and water sites available. There is wildlife there. I got spooked by an armadillo walking at night. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is an educational area in the gift shop that you can interact with.
  • It cost me $4.00 to get in. I rented a canoe for 1 hour for $10. They give you extra time to get down to the canoes in the water and to get back up to turn in your keys. Just an FYI, there is no one down by the canoes to help you get the canoe in the water. You're on your own getting the canoe out of the water and getting the canoe out of the water. Thankfully for me today there was other people out there canoeing and they are very gracious to help me get the canoe to the water's edge and back out from the water. So if you're on any restrictions for lifting or pulling like I am right now make sure somebody can help you with the canoe. Today was a nice cool day so if canoeing was very enjoyable. Not sure I want to do this on a very hot humid day. Very beautiful where you go out canoeing. Well worth the trip out here and definitely worth the money.
  • The recent rains flooded out much of the park, but what we got to explore was beautiful and peaceful. We will return when it is safe to put our kayaks in.
  • This place is a great get away! Always something to do. Kayaking, camping, hiking, fishing, beautiful place.
