“Short distance from Houston”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Very nice park that is very close to Houston. Great hiking trails, fishing down at the river, plenty of trees at the camping sites.

We did the electricity/water sites but I think the more rustic sites would have been perfect for us. A little more privacy, yet not too far from your car like at other state parks.

Do watch out for snakes as we met one on the hiking trail, but it took off faster then we could.

Also, be aware that there are some train tracks not too far away. The train can be very loud at night so if you are a light sleeper, bring some ear plugs.

“Jewell-like small park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Campground was the nicest. Sites are generous, private, shady, and all have elec, water, table, fire ring and benches. Picnic area is similar. Several pretty walking trails down to the creek which has a swimming hole. Too cold for us to try. One negative is the bathhouse, which is too small for number of campers. It is only cleaned once a day, and gets bad by nightfall. Best to shower mid-day. Even so, we enjoyed this place.

“Get back to nature”

Lots of trails to explore. Lots of nature to check out. Be mindful of snakes and bring mosquito repellant.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

You will be greeted by very friendly rangers and they will help advise you the right trails for you. There's a nice swimming area, but you have to walk a mile to get there. However, the trail is easy to walk, and it's worth the hike. If you like to canoe, there's lot of great areas here and a good place to put your canoe in. There's a cabin here that's nice and the RV area is nice as well. There's also some nice primitive camping here. The location is great. If you need to run to Walmart or go eat somewhere, Lumberton has everything you need!
