  • Great place. Beautiful. Lived out here by it my whole life. Can see many varieties of birds and animals
  • The Big Thicket National Preserve is one of few great places to do hiking and camping at. The visitors Center was open on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and they gave us useful information and maps. The Preserve has different varieties of plants including pine and carnivorous plants. We did a 7+miles hiking at the north end of the Preserve , which is also called the Turkey Creek trail. We were able to see a great botanical diversity and the most fascinating, though, was the carnivorous plants. The Preserve has better trail than most parks I have hiked at both in the state of Texas and some National recreation Centers. We had a great experience on Saturday of the Thanksgiving.
