Even though only one loop was open at the time of our visit(due to recent floods) we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend trip to this park. With limited capacity for sites, we had to look around a bit first to find an open spot to accommodate our 42' fifth wheel. Not all the sites on the Bent Tree loop would have... More

We really do enjoy coming to this park in the fall. Camp is well maintained, rangers are friendly and helpful. Camp Host also came by and visited with us as she was making rounds to pick up any errant trash left in units. Ice machine was kept stocked as well as extra fire wood as we ended up using more...

This park is perfect for nature walks and hikes or fishing with a little boy on a tiny pond. It has a lot of nice trails, long or short, very well maintained, up-and-down (not just boring winding through the cedar trees). Many opportunities to see all kinds of animals (birds, waterfowl, squirrels, wild hogs, bunnies, raccoons, armadillos, you name it).... More

Park is clean and Rangers are very polite. Had a great time fishing, cooking out and spending time with family. Will definitely go again.

We RV camp quite a bit at Texas state parks. The electric/water loop (no sewer connections at park) is nice. Go for a site on the outside of the loop - much more spacious. Most sites are fairly well shaded. Restrooms - average at best. The showers were the worst we've seen. The shower head is small and comes directly... More

(Overnight camping not in this review) The restrooms and other facilities look close-to-new and are very clean.

We planned on having more swimming access to the water, which is actually very low at this point. If you want swimming, stay a Birch Creek. Otherwise, lots of birds, animal life, nice stalls, and friendly staff members.

Had such a great time. Perfect weather, beautiful spot to camp. We were in an equestrian area and the place was clean and peaceful. Lots of trails, lake was low but we enjoyed the walks and bike riding. Lots of wildflowers to photograph. Didn't see snakes, but tons of cardinals, butterflies, bumble bees and dragon flies. True "back to nature"... More
