  • Excellent park for camping. Has both primitive and normal camping sites. Staff is pretty helpful but non-obtrusive. Be sure to bring plenty of supplies in because the closest place to restock is a general store and other than that you have to drive pretty much to bandera for anything more. Fishing wasn't great this time of year but that's only because the area didn't have enough rainfall. Hiking trails are very user-friendly and quite enjoyable. Winds can pick up and get gusty at night so be sure you set up your tent well. Plenty of room in each camping site for two vehicles and a few tents. Would definitely return to this park.
  • Great place for camping! Covered picnic tables and large trees in the camp area. They have clean restrooms and hot showers. The hiking trails are beautiful. We hiked to Monkey Rock, it was very cool!
