Although the entrance is near a golf course, once you are surrounded by these beautiful trees, you feel removed from civilization. The shade made it alot easier to enjoy the park and there is access to the river. We saw lots of deer and a few snakes. It was great for beginners or people looking for a pretty walk. It tooks us a while because we like to stop, take pictures and enjoy being away

Hiked with a bunch of youth camping out. It was flat, swampy, very humid SE Texas day. Saw several small alligators. It was pretty interesting and appreciative untill the kids became disinterested and started whining. It would be very nice at a cool time of year.
