  • The park is beautiful. Trees everywhere like one would expect in a forest. Very quiet even with a packed camping area. Facilities were all in working order and the Rangers were out and helpful. 
  • I visited the park with the intentions of renting a kayak for a couple hours. Ranger Katharine was working in the store and was extremely helpful. The park was beautiful to visit.

  • Our camping party would seize the day for a fun filled camping adventure. On a bright, sun-shiny day, a few of us showed what we were made of by paddling 5.5 miles to Pine Island in the middle of Lake Livingston and back. There is plenty of wildlife in the area for avid birdwatchers, and Lake Livingston is know for its tournament quality fishing. Hundreds of fish would leap out of the water and scores or birds would be our cheerleaders during our journey along the river. James, who caught a fish on the trip, would also share his most daring moment in the water. 4 men, 2 women, and a baby would travel 8 miles down the Trinity River from Lake Livingston to US 59. Whether cycling, camping, birdwatching, kayaking... Create your own adventure with TourdeHood.
  • We had our family trip here and we were all surprised it was so cheap but also well kept! Definitely will return soon after the rain season is over.
  • Awesome park we have been here twice. It's so peaceful and not many people around, great place for family fun. But if you are going to fish beware we have yet to catch anything here trying for hours at a time.. Other than that the park is great and very clean.
  • If I could put a negative star I would. This experience was in February of 2016. We had never been to this park before and as most know when you book an area you just guess. Usually when you get to the park, if there are openings they allow you to pick from those available sites. The camp host guy was very rude. I was with my 26 year old daughter and he made several statements that included sexual insinuations that made us very uncomfortable.he was very controlling and demanding and acted like he owned the place. The sites themselves were right next to each other, very rundown and dirty. The pens looked like they were just thrown up. The site we picked was not acceptable and not at all what the pictures on the site showed. We asked if we could get our money back if we cancelled. He said that we could just go on the website and follow the directions which we did. We received no money back and no response from our multiple inquiries. We also have a couple friends who volunteered to be interpretive camp host volunteers and they had to do alot of hours of training and then were told that they were responsible for buying the supplies for the childrens activities. The next childrens activity was with 700 kids. They were told they could fill out a form and be reimbursed but it would take months. So for all you campers out there I would think twice about going to Livingston, especially when there are so many Texas parks that are much better with much nicer people. Have fun out there everyone!
  • Wonderful place to stay, beautiful, peaceful, and the water is warm to swim in, there are no stick or logs at the swimming hole. The only thing is there in really no sand bar or shallow spot for small kids to get.
