“In love with Village Creek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Nice quite place to enjoy nature. Good day trip, camping facilities, old fashioned swimming hole, picnicking, even primitive camping. Has it all at reasonable price.

“Short distance from Houston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Very nice park that is very close to Houston. Great hiking trails, fishing down at the river, plenty of trees at the camping sites.

We did the electricity/water sites but I think the more rustic sites would have been perfect for us. A little more privacy, yet not too far from your car like at other state parks.

Do watch out for snakes as we met one on the hiking trail, but it took off faster then we could.

Also, be aware that there are some train tracks not too far away. The train can be very loud at night so if you are a light sleeper, bring some ear plugs.

“Jewell-like small park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Campground was the nicest. Sites are generous, private, shady, and all have elec, water, table, fire ring and benches. Picnic area is similar. Several pretty walking trails down to the creek which has a swimming hole. Too cold for us to try. One negative is the bathhouse, which is too small for number of campers. It is only cleaned once a day, and gets bad by nightfall. Best to shower mid-day. Even so, we enjoyed this place.

“Get back to nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lots of trails to explore. Lots of nature to check out. Be mindful of snakes and bring mosquito repellant.
