Didn't have much time to spend in the park but enjoyed a short hike. The rental canoes and paddle boats looked fun but were not open the day we were there (and we didn't have time). Lots of picnic tables and camp sites were often shaded by trees. Would like to go back.

This is a great park for tent campers! They have shelters in a number of the sites that are just wonderful to help store stuff so everything doesn't have to be in your tent. These shelter sites have electricity and water so it makes tent camping so easy. The sites for RVs with sewer hookups were too close together and... More

We stopped here to hike and nab a few geocaches. The trails are well maintained and beautiful. It's hard to believe this serene place is so close to the city. There are lots of campsites, water activities, hike and bike trails, 10 geocaches, a nature center, park store, and friendly staff. There were lots of other people in the park... More

The park looks fairly nice. We stayed in an RV site across the street from the bathrooms that was very unlevel. It was convenient to the playground though. We only stayed just to sleep so I can't give you many details.it was a little pricey and they have a park fee and it is five dollars per person additionally.

This park has lots to offer - trails, lake for swimming, boating, kayaking, roads for biking, walking, sightseeing, and bird watching. The cabins are comfortable and accommodating, but reserve ahead of time to be sure of availability. TREES, TREES, TREES. Beautiful shade in the summer. Campsites are not too close together and almost all are positioned for fabulous views of... More

I have been coming here 1-4 times a month for a year for long (10+ miles) hikes. This is a grat park to hike in. Wide variety of trails in length & difficulty. Great for mountain biking too. This spring I plan to launch my kayak! Good web site and you need to check the events link to be sure... More

This is a large State Park that is easy to get to (right off I-45), but once you are in the park you feel like you are 100 miles from a major city. Water activities at the lake, or the 7 mile hike around the lake are probably the best ways to enjoy the area. Like with all outdoor activities... More

We stayed a couple of nights in summer. The site is reasonably clean - there's litter around the waters edge but everywhere else is generally clean. It was also pretty quiet when we went, had a wide range of spots open to choose from. The camp hosts and staff were very helpful when needed. We saw the alligators as well... More

Best Best Best place. We loved the spacious camping sites, the hiking, and the view!!! Great entertainment for kids geocaching and view of alligators. I recommend it 100%. I visited with kids (12-10 yrs old). Riding bikes, hiking, walking, playing ball at the big park! It was awesome.

We visited here in December and had a nice weekend. The park is nice, very scenic, clean and well maintained. Bike trails are maintained well just have a good bike and plenty of energy! We camped in a travel trailer so we did not use the showers. They appeared to be clean but did have a distinct odor of mold.... More
