This is a very small camping area in the Sam Houston National Forest near Coldspring Texas. There are sites you can reserve and sites that are first-come-first serve.

There are 2 park hosts that live in the park and they are very accommodating if you need anything, but don’t expect to see a constant presence by park staff.

The park is a beautiful forest like facility with very wooded and shady sites, a small lake with plenty of water in it (after a couple drought seasons) and abundant hiking and biking trails.

We only camp on the full service RV sites. (Not all sites are full service.) Some sites are reasonably level and some require substantial leveling efforts. Just make sure you have plenty of Lynx levelers or equivalent. The pedestals are conveniently located with 30/50 amp service, water and dump. The sites driveway is blacktop and most sites have a concrete pad with a large picnic table and a nearby fire pit.

Cell service and TV reception are weak, so don’t plan to watch a lot of TV unless you have a satellite system. We camped at Double Lake Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
