Our family enjoys taking canoe trips down Village Creek. This is very relaxing and fun for the children. Be sure to check on the height of the water (too low and you're dragging your canoe!)

This was the first time we rented a cabin at a state park instead of pitching a tent; and, with a 7yo and 3yo in tow, this worked out so much easier.
The cabin was spotless inside, has air conditioning (set at 73 by the park rangers), a stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, real toilet and shower (with dual shower heads), couch, loveseat, 8 beds, grill, enclosed patio, private parking, etc. All we could say was WOW!
You are advised in advance that you need to bring your own sheets for the beds, towels, etc.
There isn't a TV; but, why would you need one when you can go hiking, swimming and kayaking all day? If you must have some outside entertainment, we were on 3G service about 90% of the time in and around the cabin!

We camped this weekend and had a wonderful time. The park was very clean. Restrooms & Showers were very nice, better than some other state parks.

My husband and I spend 8 nights at this park in our 5th wheel trailer. The hooks include water and electricity only. The is a dump station. The shower house was neat and clean. There are 24 camp sites. The staff was friendly and helpful. The campground almost filled up on both weekends. One Thursday we were the only campers. We toured the surrounding towns (Orange, Beaumont, Sabine Pass, Port Arthur, Vinton (LA) and the Big Thicket). We stayed busy every days and the park was in a convenient location. We hiked all of the trails (about 6 miles). The cost was $15 / night plus $2 / day per person. I have an anuual park pass so the $2 / day was waved.

Wow, we were really impressed with this park. I found very little info about it online, and only a few reviews, so was very skeptical about spending our long weekend there. First off, it is a very small park, but we found that to be very cozy! The campsites are very close together, but laid out nicely. If you were visiting with more than one family, this place would be ideal. BE ADVISED if they are full, and you are the last one to check in, SPOT 6, has no picnic table, or fire ring. It is just a parking spot! Also, it POURED rain while we were there, however, the spots/fire ring area/pad are all made of crushed granite, NOT DIRT! This is very important, as last time we were at Brazos bend with the rain, everything was covered in MUD! The shower facilities were the best I have seen in a state park. I wasn't as impressed with the trails. They were very difficult to maneuver, with numerous large roots, and parts of the trails were very soft white sand, so soft that we had to walk our bikes through those parts. There is a very nice playground, and a HUGE group pavilion with large BBQ pit. The walk in campsites were made of crushed granite as well, and were very nice and not muddy at all!! THE BIG NEGATIVE is the mosquito's are almost unbearable. Bring plenty of OFF and spray frequently!!!! Overall, it is a small park, but we cant wait to go back!
