Clean camping and swimming area- the water was so cold as its from a natural spring so it was great to escape the heat and humidity. The kids enjoyed the rope swings and wild deer.

We love how peaceful it is here. The camp hosts are very friendly, the bathhouses are clean. We love the deer and guineafowl that roam freely here. It's a great place to stay while visiting nearby Nacogdoches.

Our group enjoyed a "Happy Hour" each evening and several had adult beverages. I am sorry that I don't know about fees and did not see a grill. Fantastic park & friendly staff.
