very nice camping spot

I would give it a five but the trails are all closed and some of the sites were flooded .

really secluded spots  easy to get into and camp is under the trees which is a nice touch .

Easy access to Big Thicket, clean, comfortable campground

About 30 mins to Big Thicket visitors center and hike access. There are several nice hikes in the park but many were closed due to a long-leaf pine reforestation project that involved logging and shredding. A bit inconvenient and we could hear the shredders but we met one of the project engineers who took the time to explain the much-needed project/restoration effort. Easy walk to clean restroom with hot showers. We had 30 amp and water hook-ups. Dump station nearby with two sides.

Spacious, wooded site

We camped for 3 nights in March in our travel trailer. The site was large and had a nice concrete pad. We were at site 117 in Pin Oak Loop. Our site was very large and lots of trees but did have some low spots that held water. The bathrooms were decent. The trails were clean and accessed easy from our campsite. The kids loved riding bikes on trails as well as around our loop. Didn’t have much luck fishing due to winds. Small park but very clean with lots of nature.

First to Review
A great hometown experience

We stayed at this park while we were in our home base area for 2 months. The rv park is very nice. The staff and owners are great. The park is well maintained and has beautiful views. The laundry room is small but clean. The park just opened a store on grounds and it has just about anything you may have forgotten while shopping in town. The park is not very far from the local town for dining out and shopping. The two popular lakes are not that far of a drive either. The park sometimes has events that are very nice and the park occupants are welcomed. They also have a golf driving range, pool, and game room. There is also several ponds in the park where you can fish are just sit on the bench and enjoy the quiet view. There is also a concrete walk way all around the park that is great for walking your pets or even just taking a stroll for yourself. We will stay here each time we are in the area.

Great Trail system!

Really wonderful trails, historic tower, decent playground and its under construction for some really cool things coming soon! Be careful about lake access from the newest camping loop, private property gets in the way…

Beautiful location, but badly needing repair.

The campground is managed by the federal government and if you have a senior or similar type National Parks and Federal Land membership pass, you get 50% of the daily camp fee.

The sites have beautiful views of the lake and are close to the water. The campground  was obviously built many years ago as the sites seem designed for smaller trailers / RV's. If your RV is over 34' long, select your site carefully as many of them are not level (you will need levelling blocks for sure), and some have a steep ascent / descent driveway to the site requiring a 90 degree back in from a narrow service road with drainage ditches on either side of the road.

There has clearly been much erosion from rains storms over the years which has not been repaired and a number of camp site have been yellow taped as not usable due to hazardous drop-offs, etc. These can be dangerous for kids or adults not paying attention to where they are walking. 

Bathrooms are clean, but also badly in need in refurbishing as they are decades old. Walls are cracked with plaster falling  / paint peeling and water temp is unpredictable. There are no sewer connections at most camp sites so the bathrooms are used more than a campgrounds with sewer connections.

Now if the government would get their priorities right and stop funding ridiculous things with our taxpayer dime, instead focusing  a billion or so dollars on restoring America's parks and campgrounds the public might actually be served.

If the park was in a better state of repair, it would easily get a rating of 4 or more.

Great bass fishing

Two ramps and another nearby to launch boat. Great views from the campsites

Beautiful park, site 331

My new favorite park. The variety of trees is so beautiful. There’s huge magnolias , pines , maples and of course the bald cypress trees in the water are amazing. Some of the sites are huge, our pad was a little tight but we managed to angle in so we could still be on solid ground and pull out the slide out. The loop we were in does not have a bathroom but in my opinion was the best in the park. The trails are really nice and the kids had a great time scaring each other in the dark (it was really dark!!)

Quiet hunting area

Primitive hunting camp area we enjoyed the nice and quiet area

Very nice park

We really enjoyed this park with multiple trails and places for the kids to play
