Little traffic and a big hilly open place to practice your woodsmen skills. Key spot for primitive camping with no hookups that I saw. Very open space with lots of trail
If you are looking for a primitive site then this is the spot. If your looking for a camping area set up for tents then you can find it here. I love coming out to LBJ
Beautiful area! Great for hikes, outdoor skills and group. Scouts go often for primative overnights.
Though this state park is a little out of the way it definitely has a lot to offer. It is rich in history and wildlife and a great place to take the family. Also it is free to get in! What a deal!
There is so much to do, from simming to hiking and everything in between, but the best part are the historical exhibits. There is a 100 year old living farm kept in original form from 1918 with actual staff dressed in clothes from that time period. The staff is so kind and informative, plus you get to see all sorts of livestock and beautiful buildings from that era.
Located across the river is the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park where you can view the Texas White house and see the history and life of President Johnson.
The nature trails are very nice and the park is really well kept. Be aware though that in the summer it gets very hot and some parts of the park do not have shade. The facilities are very clean and there is a playground for kids which is convenient.
On your way in or out make sure you stop at one of the vineyards. There are quite a few. We visited Becker farms and they had grape stomping and lots of activities. Very family friendly and great wine, grab a bottle to take home! Will go back during cooler months, would be a great trip in Fall.
this campground is great for hitching up a high line for your ponies and spending the weekend hitting the trails. you’ll have to haul water to your site from the water trough. and it can be noisy on a busy weekend.
