Great Experience!

Plenty of good camping spots as well as great trails and a big beautiful lake.

Family fun camping trip!

We had 3 sites that were close enough for all the family to spend the weekend together! The fishing was not great, they have way to many Tilopia fish in the lake. The campground was fun for the kids to explore. The sites are shaded and they were doing some upgrades to the park!

Loved our time

We stayed as Fort Parker for two weeks! We had a wonderful time.

Pros: Gorgeous lake, tons of pelicans and herons, kayak trails, great Verizon service for work, amazing staff and camp hosts, regular nature programs, sunsets, pretty quiet and peaceful even when the camp was full!

Cons: swimming area was pretty gross, mud up to our knees and scum on the top of the water. River trail was stagnant but we saw a lot of birds still. Uneven sites 6-10(needed major leveling)

A hidden jewel in deep East Texas

Ensconced in the deep Piney Woods of Davy Crockett National Forest lies the site of the original Franciscan Mission to the Caddo Indians. The local tribe’s word for friend was tejas (tay-hoss) meaning friend. The camping sites are all situated in the woods scattered among the hills above the Neches River Valley. They do not have sites for extremely large diesel pushers, but 32 foot trailers or RVs fit nicely.

The location has Texas state park normal accoutrements like fire rings, tables, lantern posts, showers, bathrooms and new front office with interesting rain harvesting equipment to view. Serene and beautiful area with hiking trails of easy to moderate level of difficulty with a historic walk to the site of the original Camino Real also known as the Old San Antonio Road.

Nearby you have historic markers every 3 miles or so on the current King’s Highway with Caddoan Indian Mounds to visit, sites of early settlers, including the original Rice Family Dog Run Cabin on site. There is a lovely lake for perch and bass fishing and playgrounds for young children.

It is favorite park of mine to visit and I return every few years.

Rain or shine

I visited this park on a trip with my field botany class through my university. If you’re interested in ecology or botany, this is a great site to visit! It was quite wet for much of our stay, but the region was still absolutely stunning. The campsites were nice and the facilities were well maintained. I will definitely be returning here again!

This is a city RV Park

This is mainly a city RV/camper campsite that sits right on the outskirts of the town of Corsicana. Very close to Navarro College. So if you wanted to visit the college or the town of Corsicana this would be a great RV site. No views of anything except the highway. Not a vacation site, more of a need to stop for awhile site.

Nice

Nice park. Trails could be better maintained. There was a huge tree down on one trail that made it impossible to pass. On another trail was a big low layout g branch that made that trail hard to maneuver. The lake is beautiful and there are plenty of trees to hang a hammock on.

nature & wildlife!

We stopped here overnight on the way home from Renfest in October 2017… it was rustic, we saw a couple of wild hogs on the way to our campsite.

Like the other state parks we had been to, there was running water, tent pads & a nearby restroom. Since we were only there for one night, we didn't get a chance to explore the park.

Peaceful fun camping

We took our Grandkids here awhile back. We fished, hiked and made S'mores. The Rangers gave the kids information and coloring stuff. They had cool things for the kids to see.

Nice state park

Clean bathrooms … good spacing between camps … beautiful
