We visited this state park and really enjoyed the beautiful wild flowers. I can’t remember ever seeing so many varieties. This is the first state park of Texas and there’s a lot of history here. It’s a shame that a flood in 2007, 2016, and...More

The site was perfect, the weekend was perfect, the hiking was perfect as was the bike ride. Yes, we will be coming back. I think it's a "best-kept secret". It's small but packed with enough to keep us busy for the weekend.

We stayed in our RV in this park. It is an immaculately clean park with a good hiking trail loop and friendly staff. Our site #13 had no trees and no privacy. The sites are big but with no trees you still look right at...More

The RV sites do have some shade. But, it is limited. There are quite a few trees around but they are not all large enough or positioned correctly to benefit from their shade
