  • Since this park is so close to San Antonio, the 7th largest city in the U.S., I was not surprised by the size of the "day use" parking lot. It is a popular spot for tubing, kayaking, and canoeing. The...  more »

  • This is one of my favorite state parks to go hiking and play in the water. It is awesome that it is only 25 minutes away from my house. The trails are very well maintained and you can get a good hike ...  more »

  • Beautiful spot for swimming and safe for little swimmers with supervision. The discovery center is amazing! You can explore animal bones, pelts, and habitats Super fun for children. Lots of small wildlife and beautiful landscape. Our favorite place to swim!
  • Great place to go camp and relax at the river. If you camp here, just note that after 10, they want no loud noise (music, etc) at the camp site. We went in a big group and had a whole section, about 8-9 camp sites but the ranger said no singing, guitar playing, etc after 10pm. Other than that, it was a good place.
  • 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.
  • Plenty of shallow places for the little ones but fun for the whole family. Close to home with a feeling of far away. Recommend for everyone to come and enjoy the young and the wise.
  • My first camping trip and it was great! Restrooms were decent. Campgrounds weren't so close to each other. There was a place to float the river which was only about 20 mins away. HEB wasn't too far either. We ended up getting an annual pass to enjoy other parks.
