“One of your favorite Texas State Parks”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2019

Overall Rating

We LOVE this park. It is part of Davy Crockett National Forrest. The person who wrote the first review did a great job. The trails are beautiful. Lots of history in this part of Texas... and IN this park! The park is not really on the way to anywhere, but is worth the drive!

One word of caution - many of the sites have hookups on the door side of the site. For site 15 we needed extensions for our water & electric.

On our first trip we went to Rusk & road the Texas State Train to Palestine & back. If it a beautiful fun way to see the piney woods of East Texas.

“Walk in the path of Conquistadors”

Reviewed Jan 01, 2016

Overall Rating

This little park is nothing short of a treasure!!!! First of all, it only has 17 campsites, including two tent only ones. I love that!!!! Second, there is a stretch of THE ACTUAL Camino Real going through the park. Third, it's very very close to another treasure, Caddo Mounds State Historic Site. And FOURTH (sorry, I can't help the caps), this area was mentioned in the classic travelogue Blue Highways. Like I said, a treasure!!!! The only trail I walked was the Camino Real Trail, which is not clearly marked in the standard map, but is marked on the pulled-from-under-the-counter-special-map they will give you if you express an interest in hiking. As well as the Camino, which was quite simply awesome (a footpath that was used by native Americans for generations upon generations, later used by the Spaniards, and now ME! so well traversed that it has literally beaten a trail about a few FEET into the ground!), it also has a historic building, the Rice Family Log home, which includes interesting explanation of historic log home building techniques. And, it's very green (east Texas piney woods) and very very quiet because there is no highway or busy road nearby. I highly recommend this off the beaten path Texas state park.
