  • We took a picnic and an afternoon hike at lost maples in the beginning of October. It was beautiful. The trails are well marked. We took a 5 year old, 13 year old, 9 year old and two dogs with us and ...  more »
  • The weather was misty but it did not take away any of the beauty this park has to offer. We hiked to the top and it was beautiful. The exercise and views led to a peaceful night sleep and raging morni...  more »
  • We have visited almost every national park in the US and many state parks in Colorado, California, Oregon, and Washington; Lost Maples is by far the worst run park we have ever attempted to visit. We ...  more »

  • On our Nov 2017 RV trip we paid a visit to The Lost Maples State Natural Area. This is truly a unique place in the great state of Texas! Home of the Big Tooth Maple trees makes this a great park to visit in the fall when the trees are changing colors. Unfortunately our visit to Lost Maples State Park was highlighted by a gloomy overcast sky, chill winds and fog. This made for a fairly short visit to the Lost Maples State Natural area. As I am disabled and not able to hike there was not a whole lot for me in the park but I made the most of my visit. You can see a video of the park that I created on my YouTube here... https://youtu.be/xo6xuerTbrs
  • My family loves hiking the trails at Lost Maples. We have a 3 year old and a 7 year old and we all love the natural beauty and appreciate the varying levels of difficulty depending on what we want to do on a particular day. We often enjoy a hike and picnic as part of our Sunday worship. Glad we live so close. Highly recommended.
  • We had a great time camping here. We decided to do the primitive camp sites and the hike in was lovely. We were also able to bring our dog which was awesome! Beautiful area to hike in.
  • Great hiking experience. Beautiful views on the way. Camping sites are enjoyable. Book ahead. Food is great. But be prepared for those hikes they can be strenuous for she l some who have no experience. Great hidden treasure in the Hill country.
  • Loved it. We had a bad camping experience due to illness. This in no way reflects on the park or staff. The park is beautiful and we'll managed. The staff was courteous and helpful.
