My mother and I drove through here over spring break. What a beautiful park for birding or fishing. Staff went out of their way to help us find good birding sites and honestly I think they have the cleanest nicest camping sites and restrooms in Texas. This is a special place that we are lucky to have as Texans.

Beautiful state park. Fishing included with the park pass. No need for a state fishing license. Lots of fishing and bird watching.

Stayed on the bayside and could fish right in front of our 5th Wheel. Poor weather during out stay but was still wonderful. Birding classes and walks nearly daily provided free by park staff. Other guests were friendly mix of birders, fulltimers and fishermen. We had internet, slow at our sight but not in the campsites in the trees. 22 dollars a night. Would definitely return.
