Like all the Texas State Parks we've stayed in this is a beautiful park. It was originally built by the CCC. The only drawback, though not a deal breaker, was there was no wifi or cell reception. We have AT&T and the only way we...More

I'm leaving this review to let future visitors know about the highway noise at this park. It's a beautiful park, with clean campsites, nice facilities, a great lake and good trails. The only issue is Highway 22 noise, which runs directly along the south park...More

We camped for Spring Break with our 9 year old and had a great time hiking the trails and looking at the views from the bluff.

We spent a few hours hiking around the lake, then relaxed and had lunch near the CCC stone building. Great day. They also have nice caming areas, especially the shelters on the water.

We visited this park on our way to Dinosaur State park . We did not stay overnight. This is a smaller park yet unique. Great views and definitely for people with passion for fishing

Very nicely kept small park with a small lake and hiking trails. Plenty of things to do to spend quality family time. No cell phone reception which was great as it lets you completely unplug. Stayed in RV, nice full hookup sites, partially tree covered....More
