This is our second time at DMSP this year! We already have our next visit planned and reserved. We love the fact that it is cooler than Houston and the very different bird population. A very nice park with excellent facilities and trails abounding.

Friendly park staff. Nicely provisioned state park. We just did a day visit but I would love to camp here for a few days. Interesting informational exhibitions. The view from the top of the mountain is amazing.
