This is an amazing park. Like stepping into another world. We made a week of it and saw all the local attraction. Gonzales to see the cannon. Lulling for some bbq. Shiner for a beer tour. Schulenburg for the painted churches and stopped at potters for pecans and city market for some sausage to cook over the fire. City market sausage can come frozen so don't worry about the trip back to the camp. Also get some shiner to go with the sausage. A great trip.

One Of Our Favorite Places!
I love this park. We have teenagers and the love to swim here. Trails are amazing! 50 amp hookup, theres only about 20 rv spots. They dont have full hookup. But the shade and the cleanliness makes up for it. Shower pressure OMG amazing! I never felt so clean before lol. Love it.

Beautiful park imo, loved it here. Scenic and well designed, cheap for a TX SP too. Would definitely come back for longer.

An Unexpected Gem Of A Park
Please note that the Parks Headquarters and check-in for camping are located in the village of Ottine (just south of the intersection of FM 1586 and Park Road 11)!
Nice large back-in sites, clean servicable older restrooms, nice forested camping area (satelite rexeption might be an issue - jetpack works great), very well maintained!
The hiking trails are more like walking trails: mostly flat, lots of bridges, some dirt, but also a lot of gravel (not challenging, but extremly beautiful!!!)The trails are also great for bikes, strollers and self driving wheel chairs too (no curbs or steps). There is no way of getting lost and the trails meander through an amazing mixture of swamps filled with palmetto trees, meadows full of wildflowers, forests and along the San Marcos river. The park is currently (late February) starting to transfer into spring. I can imagine the park taking on a more jungle like feel in some areas later in spring and summer.

Expect State Park facility. Bathrooms were very clean. A little dated but still very clean with heater. The RV part is small maybe 20 sites. No pull through. We have an Rpod 179 so spots are easy. I watched 30 footers back in with no problems. Plenty of trees TV reception is difficult. No sewer but dump is on the way out. Quite at night. Bring your bikes or if you like hiking there are great trails with bridges. River runs through park. I wouldn't recommend the fishing if you expect to catch anything but the landscape was great with trees laying in the river. Rapids as well. Park does have a swimming lake with rentals.
