“Great Mountain Biking.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The mountain biking trails here are very rewarding. A rider can find plenty of technical sections on the trail or for the least experienced there is EZ trail or Loop A trail. The park has a small lake that is absolutely beautiful at all seasons of the year. Canoe and paddleboat rentals are also available here.

“Prettiest State Park in Texas”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Was there Nov. 20-23. Excellent fall foliage. Lots of shady trees. Great trails for both hiking and mountain biking. Stayed in the tent, water only, section. Sites are not close together which is a real blessing. However, there is only one restroom for this section of the park (41 sites) and for the eastern half of this section its up a long flight of stairs. Would have given the park 5 stars except: you hear noise from nearby highways all day and all night though it's not super loud; none of the camp sites are right on the lake, the closest are at least 40 yards away; the gnats, when out, are huge and super aggressive. Also, I was here on a day only excursion during warm weather and it was Very crowded. But, like I said, this is the prettiest state park in Texas.

“Very beuautiful area”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The lake front campground is the best. Great place to bicycle, hike, swim or fish. A trail circles the whole lake. The lake is very clear. Be sure to keep your coolers and food locked up. The raccoons are very clever.

“Grew Up Going Here”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Such a beautiful spot, if you want to kick back and chill, this is a great place. Paddle boats are fun, screened houses are neat to rent, I always enjoyed just walking around. Good swimming spot and now that I have a new little trailer, I hope to camp there soon!!

Very nice state park in East Texas. Beautiful lakes and camping areas. We camp here at least once or twice a year. A great park for family fun!
