We opted for the cabin since we were flying to Texas and didn't have room for tent and all normal camping gear. Nearly perfect - clean, electric stove, microwave, coffee maker, full size refrigerator, dining table and chairs, sofas, fireplace, bathroom with shower, AC/heat (preset by staff, so contact them right away during office hours if you need it changed as we did when the temperature dropped from 80's to 40's) As advised when reserving, you need to bring ALL bedding/towels and cooking equipment. There was toilet paper in the bathroom. We enjoyed meals on the screened porch. However, there is no furniture there - we moved chairs and a small side table out from inside and then returned them before it rained. If you have room, you might want to bring your own camping chairs. Outdoors there is a picnic table, a fire ring and a grill.
The cabin is private (separate from the campground) with view of the river nearby, The cabin is on ridge above the river. It is a short drive/walk to the canoe launch to reach the river. The swimming beach is a mile hike through the woods from the canoe launch/shelter area.
While the park is just outside of Lumberton, we found it quieter than many rural parks which often are located near highways. Since we needed to buy food, the closeness to city was convenient.
We hiked several nice well maintained trails through different habitats. We saw only a couple of other people (mid week in early April). We had hoped to canoe but couldn't seem to find an outfitter responding/willing to supply just one canoe mid-week this early in season. Instead we hiked trails near the Big Thicket National Preserve Visitor Center north of Kountze - quiet and gorgeous!!
The campsite reviews appear to be for the drive in campsites. We saw the walk-in campground where sites have more privacy and not too long of a walk. Looked like a great alternative for those with tents.
