General Information

To manage and conserve the natural and cultural resources of Texas and to provide hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.Things to Do

The main recreational activities are camping, excellent birding and fishing. Other activities include picnicking, boating (motors allowed), nature study, wildlife observation and photography.

Equipment Rentals

This park participates in the Angler Education “Tackle Loaner Program"; individuals can borrow rods, reels and tackle boxes with hooks, sinkers and bobbers.  We are also a part of the new Junior Ranger Explorer Pack program; individuals can check out explorer packs for day use and are responsible for returning the equipment in the pack.
