  • This is a great place to go cool off with the family. The water is always cool because it is spring fed. We went on a summer weekend and it was very crowded. This would be my only complaint. There is ...  more »
  • Actually this is more of a place to swim, but we also enjoyed the beautiful gardens and the full moon made for a romantic walk by the swimming hole. The ground are magnificent and it was easy to forge...  more »

  • We liked camping here a lot. It was very well kept and there are a lot of different spots to camp so I wouldn’t imagine it filling up super quickly. We didn’t swim because it was cold, but it felt nice for a hot day. We plan on coming back. It is pretty expensive, because the camping price is per person instead of per site. There is a separate camping price or day price. I imagine that the price is so they can continue to keep the place nice. They only take cash!
  • Such an AWESOME place to camp!!! My brother & I just got home from spending the weekend there. We luckily came across this gem online after finding out that ALL* other state parks (*from Galveston Island up to Dallas!) were FULL/not taking reservations for this weekend... I can't believe I've never been here before; it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL♡ Everything about it was perfect!! Clean bathrooms, excellent campsites, stunning natural pools (w/ trickling waterfall!)... We can't wait to go back!!
  • Beautiful place to relax. Wind chimes are very peaceful. Water spring is a perfect temperature. There also are small wild life around, for better or worse.
  • This location is just absolutely amazing there's two waterfalls and some exposed roots and small trees that are great if you're looking for spots to do photos and the entry fee is completely reasonable. The staff is super helpful and really takes a lot of pride in the location.
  • The owners were so nice and accommodating!!! 40 acres of beautiful land! Very clean, tranquility garden behind check in is amazing!!
