Lots of birds to observe. Helpful staff. Very clean and good fishing areas.
Nice clean park. 1/3 mile long pier with good fishing and lit at nighttime for trout fishing. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The yearly pass is only $70 and everyone in your car is allowed in and allowed to fish. Good fish cleaning stations and clean restrooms.
We camped on the water, which is right next to a boat launch site. The airboats start at about 5 a.m. making sleep impossible. It was duck season, but am told they are being used for fishing tours, too, now and are getting more popular. The noise is deafening and ruined our visit. Otherwise it is a nice, clean campground....

Ok to start- YES! There isn't a whole lot "to do" in this park... but isn't that the point? We camped here over the News Years Holiday and what a treat it was! Super friendly staff and awesome campsites for RV's along the treed side! We enjoyed the birding areas throughout the park, hiked along the small but nice trails... More
Liked the wonderful people at the entrance but the daily entrance fee took us aback, particularly since we were there just to take a guided fishing trip. So, we're not rating it based on camping or using all facilities but rather on cost for very limited usage.
also nice place to hike about in cool weather, knowlegeble park staff. good bird watching.
This is a great park for observing water birds, waterfowl, shorebirds and passerines. When you leave the park, take a left to the Lamar Beach Road along St. Charles Bay. This road becomes Park Road 13 and goes past Big Tree, a very large oak thought to be over a 1,000 years old.
This park consists of a meandering piece of bay shoreline with improved camping sites, a fishing pier, boat dock and lots of level space to walk or bike, Like most of the Texas Coastal Bend there are lots of birds to observe. A well-known highlight of the park is The Big Tree, one of the largest and oldest live oaks... More
As the other reviews say, there's no swimming and no beach to walk along. The pier is cool, but since we didn't have a fishing pole there wasn't much to do. See Big Tree while you are there.
