  • Gorgeous Texas scenery. I've been all over this great state and this is my favorite park by far. The birds are my favorite part, especially in Spring.Always lots of Armadillo at dusk,and deer everywhere. Great for hiking, swimming and canoeing as well.It gets packed, so get there early for a good spot. Warning:if you are scared of snakes this may not be the place for you.The three times I've been in the last year I saw both water snakes and land snakes.
  • This place is a wonderful place to hike, fish, kayak, camp or just relax in clear shallow water. It also get a little deeper if you like that sort of thing. The floods have damaged some of the trails along the bank but it's apparent that the staff keep working on them to make it as nice as possible. Speaking of the staff, they are all nice, friendly and always helpful. You will always find people to chat with and kids will find new friends to play with. All the campsites are nice. Most if not all are shaded and you have privacy. If you go out at night you will see deer, raccoons, javelina, armadillo. Take your flashlight and go slow or park and watch. The stars are amazing as well. With very little light pollution you are sure to see a lot of stars. If you camp, there are trails leading to the bath houses. Just don't go alone at night for safety reasons. Beware of the spiders. But you are in the woods so expect that. Oh and do not leave your car doors open or the friendly raccoons will help themselves to whatever snacks you might have in there. If you kayak they have a gate where you can go through by obtaining the code from the ranger station and drive down to unload. Again the floods have eroded some of the banks so you have to pull your kayak to the nearest, easiest point of entry. The trees along the banks are amazing with many intricate root designs. You will be amazed if you kayak further up or down towards honey creek. It's peaceful and calm. You may have to get out and pull your kayak some but it's not that bad. I go there quite often as I love that place. I hope everyone else will to.
  • Very friendly staff and nice offices. Looks like a nice place to camp. I went there to ride the trails. Trails are challenging and are at an intermediate level to more advance. Almost all rock gardens, little shade. Some hills, very much fun to ride around on. There is over 10 miles of riding. Also nice is there is access to the rest rooms and getting water. There is also a nice place to go in the river and cool off.
  • The state park has plenty of trails and entertainment to offer. Had a great time this past weekend with our family. Haunted trick or treating on the trails was enjoyed by the little ones. Darkness and quietness was appreciated. Wish the Turkey Sink had wider campsites for SUV tents. BE CAREFUL OF THE STAIRS BEHIND THE RESTROOMS AT TURKEY SINK, we had one of our family members trip going down and fractured their ankle in 3 spots. Luckily, her 2 year old daughter escaped without injury in the fall.
  • Beautiful ! Water was low so perfect for the kids. There was also plenty of room on the river shore as well as barbque/picknic areas to choose from. Parking is good as long as your Early otherwise expect a far walk. Bathroom was very nice. Very scenic .My family had a great time.
