Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...


#1385898
I'd heard this was a great park and I wasn't disappointed, its a jewel. This place has it all: large camp sites, clean, clean restrooms and showers, they sell fire wood cheap, canoe, row boat and bicycle rentals, tent camping, sites with just water or water and electric for pop-ups, travel trailers, motor homes, etc. Miles of beautiful hike and bike trails through the woods, 2 boat ramps, 2 fishing piers, lots of sites on the water, you name it. Also had playgrounds for the kids. This place will be a regular spot for us from now on.

We had deer come through our camp site every morning and evening

Our campsite was large, clean, and quiet with picnic table, BBQ pit, and fire ring

We got there about noon Thanksgiving day and set up camp. The Norther blew through that night and we woke up to 36° temps and fog that soon burned off.

We took the Ultimate 14.5 with us. The wife hadn't been in a kayak for over 2 years now due to a wreck caused by a female talking on a cell phone as she ran a red light. She put on her back brace and I helped her in and out of the kayak. She had to take her babies, I mean dogs along for the ride.

You can see some of the shelters they rent. Some with water, some with water and electric, some also have A/C. All were on or near the water. The campgrounds also has play grounds for the kids.

One item we can't do without on our camping trips is our Coleman stove. The little propane bottles seem to last forever. We finally emptied one after four camping trips and used it for making coffee, cooking, boiling water to wash dishes, etc. This is a must have item. On Friday night we ate wild caught salmon that we brought back from last year's Alaska trip.

On Saturday night we ate fried catfish and trout fillets.

This place is also a kayak paddler's dream. Can't wait to go back.

We ended each day sitting in front of a fire drinking hot coffee and solving the world's problems. In bed by 9 and fall asleep listing to the leaves falling on the camper's canvas and the armadillos crawling through the brush behind us, wake up at daybreak ready to start the day.
