  • On the way to Corpus Cristi we stopped at this state park. After dropping the entrance fee ($ 5,00 each) we drove in the park. We found a big parking place, a restroom, dirty sitting place everywhere,...  more »
  • We visited in the beginning of July and it was super hot (not the park's fault obviously!). We ended up leaving a day early because we spent all our time in our camper and our dogs were miserable. Fir...  more »
  • Choke Canyon State Park is west of Three Rivers, TX. Beautiful sunsets, camping, and wildlife is up close for photographers. Great Birding.  more »

  • Great place if all you want to do is camp. Fishing is below average for a Texas park. Banks are super shallow and full of algae and weeds which makes bottom fishing impossible and top fishing just frustrating. On the other hand, if you have a boat or rent one, fishing is fantastic. Bugs are abundant during the summer mixed with low wind and scalding heat. I would not suggest taking your little ones.
  • If you have a boat and are wanting to fish, this is a good place. If you want to see a lot of wildlife, this is a good place. If you want to swim, this place sucks! Even if there were no gaters, the water and shoreline is nasty. The only way to escape the heat is to go inside or leave the park. The park rangers must be under a lot of pressure to give out citations, they were constantly bothering people. Between the heat by day, bugs at night, and no swimming, this was my least favorite state park I've visited in Texas.
  • We really enjoyed our weekend their seen deer turkey and a hog. Tons of birds my daughter said they were singing to her. The bath rooms and showers were clean the cabin was nice an cool. The only down side was the stickers were everywhere could not walk anywhere with out them all over shoes and scokes and the swing set by the cabins were broken. We stayed in cabin 7 and it was the perfect spot not to close to water close to bathroom and lot of shade.
  • Don't get me wrong now, it's a beautiful place to camp & all. But not fishing friendly for people without a boat. Need to have some fishing piers available.
  • Fun large place. Can rent a cabin. Go on the lake. Very cheap place to have fun
