Went for an afternoon walkabout with my dog. Nicely kept park. Plenty of room to camp or spend the day. Good trails. Not crowded although there were lots of people there.

I go every two weeks to ride my bike as it is a safe and clean area to do so. I have taken my grandkids with me on many occasions for bike rides and picnics. Great for the whole family

Walked a trail and it was so pretty. We were there on a Sunday and it wasn't crowded at all. Everything was really green.

Visited in the light rain on a weekday. It was so quiet, we could hear the raindrops hitting the pond water. Also nice to hear all of the frogs. On a short hike, we were even able to spot some bullfrogs in the water. Ran...More

We had seen the sign for Sam Houston Jones State Park many times, but never stayed there until this past weekend. We will be back. The trailer sites are not very deep, so there is not a lot or room for vehicle parking. The sites...More

So I decided to check this park out because almost every stare I work in I usually stop and check out their state parks. It had just snowed so I knew I would get some good peaceful scenery. I wasn’t disappointed. There are numerous paths...More

Sam Houston Jones State Park is a great place to spend some time. They have cabins, rv parking and tent spaces. It is a nice quiet area to sit back and enjoy some peaceful time. Nice walkways, fishing, picture taking.

Unfortunately, I had only an hour in the park before sundown, but that hour didn't disappoint. Upon entering, and paying the small fee, I was told, "You'll see plenty of deer!" No kidding! Within five minutes, there was a doe and her baby, out for...More

Will always enjoy the wildlife and the river at this park. Miss living close to it these days. Love watching the grandkids play on the playgrounds and enjoy watching the boats going by.

The park is very nice. There are places to park camping trailers, they have cabins to rent, there is a boat launch, and a bridge over a pond. The deer are free in the park and you can feed them. They are no longer in a... More
