This was an easy hike in a unique forest to central texas.  We hiked about 2/3 of the way around the trail(clockwise direction) before finding a nice area to sleep for the night. The primitive camping area is huge so we were totally isolated which is a nice change from most of the primitive sites in central texas parks.  Everything seemed perfect until I was awoken at about 10:30pm by loud music and yelling in the distance, the party continued until about 3am making it very difficult to sleep.  I would advise one to avoid fri or sat nights in this park or if you can not do that, at least camp in the north east corner of the primitive area because there is a residential area centered just south of the primitive camping zone where the noise was coming from.
