In addition, the park is located approximately 30 miles from the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation, Big Thicket National Preserve, National Forest Service areas, Sam Rayburn Lake and Toledo Bend Lake.
The tall pines are beautiful in this park!!! The only draw back to that is it blocks the view of the gorgeous stars and milk way at night. 😊. There was a fishing pier we fished off of that was nice and they have a nice swim area for the family with a few showers to rinse off the lake water. That helps while camping!! There was canoeing offered through a river that was beautiful and filled with all sorts of water lillies, cats tails and grasses sounding the canoeing trails. It was pretty. Bathrooms were nice. The park had some nice hiking trails. We enjoyed our camping trip here.
