“Also for mountain bikers there are numerous small trails that most hikers don't use and there are great views along these.”
Lake fishing and scenic trails highlight this east central Texas retreat..
The beautiful wooded setting, which includes a tranquil lake, makes an excellent area from which to observe the seasonal distribution of some 250 species of birds. Mammals include white-tailed deer, raccoons, opossums, bobcats and armadillos along with rabbits, squirrels and small rodents. Facilities include restrooms, showers, campsites, picnic sites; seven-and-a-half miles of hiking trails, dump station, playground and group picnic pavilion with a fireplace, picnic tables, and a restroom with showers in the area.
Alligators are cool!. Seriously, where else can you walk or bike ride miles of paths with loads of alligators around! I have heard the birding is excellent as well but I get excited over the bigger animals. Also for mountain bikers there are numerous small trails that most hikers don't use and there are great views along these. But watch out for the snakes!
Love it!. It's escapism. I feel like I'm far, far away from city-life and civilization. I relax, I hit the trails with my bike or hike them, I sweat, I enjoy. It's nice.
Gators, Flora & Fauna. Wonderful state park. Several miles of trails of hiking & biking. A great learning experience for children or a great escape for the photographer. Wonderful State Park!
