Shelter Area Cabin 13 was awesome

Stayed here for a weekend with my family. So nice to have AC in the cabin with shade on the little patio area. I’m convinced site 13 is the best. Only con was that others were using it to get down to the lake so we had a few people walk right up next to the cabin with their fishing gear. Bathrooms…

Shelter from the Storm

We stayed here 2/13/21 to 2/18/21 during the Texas Extreme Cold and Snow event!

We had originally planned to go to Junction after our time in Lockhart State Park, but wanted to get further South away from the snow and cold. We easily switched our reservation to here although it was supposed to be…

Nice and quiet.

We stopped for the night on the way into North Padre Island. It was a perfect stop after a long day of driving. The sites are large and well spaced. With 50 amp power and water at each site as well as a dump station at the entrance, it has all we need. And it was fun listening to an owl just after…

Nice SP in SE Texas Good lake but beware of hydrilla! July 2020

Overall, Choke Canyon SP is a nice park.  Large footprint in southeast Texas between San Antonio and Corpus Christi.  Good trails overall, however, could use better markings at trail intersections.  Choke Canyon Reservoir is large and the area we were at had very little motorized boat traffic,…

Beautiful and peaceful !

My first time camping and it was so much fun! I’m 68 so it doesn’t take much to entertain me. The park is very pretty, beautiful lake but the water was down by 16 feet🙁, that’s why the 4 stars. The wildlife is abundant as the park is a refuge. We saw wild turkey Tom with his harem of hens,…

Easy experience

We enjoyed very much our stay at Choke Canyon.

Nature is all around! We camped there and just some meters from our tent we got to see a bunch of deers, bunnies, wild turkeys and plenty of colorful birds!

The campground and all the facilities were clean! And the staff members very helpful.

Must like birds....

Very nice, isolated area. All kinds of water birds. 5$ admission plus your fee for camping. The tent area has no shower, but the RV shower house isn't to far away. The just tent area is right on the small 75 acre lake which has gobs of birds! Kayaking would be a blast, but the boat ramp isn't…

Saw two bucks and three pigs too
