  • Called about pricing. The lady said it would only be $10/night. We asked 2x if that was all we had to pay and she said yes. When we got there someone else said we paid have to pay $5/person plus the $10 was only for the camping site. We decided to pay because it looked like a nice place to camp. We picked our camping site and set up... as we were bbqing we looked over to our table and there were roaches all over our table and food! We were so grossed out. We have never been camping with roaches all over the place, also there were a lot of ants throughout the campground. Ants were not a big deal to us but the roaches were unacceptable!
  • The boat ramp is good and there is a fish cleaning station. Very kayak friendly. Usually pretty clean and quiet!
  • The staff was great, we were allowed to drive around first to pick our spot. Plenty of shade. Boat ramp available.
  • A superbly diverse state park! You can camp right by the seashore, or way back in the woods, or anywhere in between. Birding is excellent throughout the park. Bathrooms are clean, park employees very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.
  • Several of us visited this park and it has the oldest living Live Oak Tree in the state of Texas it is an amazing tree. We enjoyed it immensely
