We just went for a short visit. We saw some deer and an alligator. Great place for a picnic, RV camping, or renting a cabin.
Sam Houston Jones State Park is a nice place to spend an afternoon. I walked around the parks trails and enjoyed seeing the birds and turtles, didn't see any alligators, though there are signs warning that alligators are present. The park has facilities for campers, picnicking and also cabins. The river is very pretty and peaceful. It was a nice... More
The park is conveniently located1/2 way between Houston and New Orleans, approximately 5 miles north of I-10 freeway. Staying in the cabins at Sam Houston Park is the perfect meeting spot for our former neighbors who now live in Houston and for us who live in New Orleans. We rent 2 side-by-side cabins and enjoy Louisiana crawfish, crabs, and shrimp... More

Wife & I are pulling a small travel trailer ( Michigan to Texas, and back again ). It just so happened that I was able to reserve 2-nites of the Easter weekend here. YIKES ! Crammed full ! ( Duh !) Small sites ( tiny !), neighbors pop-up nearly touched my trailer side. People, kids, dogs, picnic activities, reserved pavilions,... More
It's a pretty little park on the bayou. I'd love to go back and stay in one of the cabins for a few days. The hike/bike trails were good. I don't know how accurate the distances are and my husband was sure we were lost on what was supposed to be a 3/4 mile loop (we weren't lost - I... More
This park is near Lake Charles and is a good place to ride bikes and camp. There are a lot of trees. The campsites are not real spacious and the accomodations are ok. We enjoyed the weekend we spent there.
My boyfriend and I came here for the day as it was really sunny. There were picnic areas by the lake which were beautiful, bbq's available to use but we did not use them. Lots of wildlife to look at while walking around. Nice area by the boat launch to watch the people fishing and are able to lay down... More
This is the most beautiful around. Cypress trees and moss galore. Folks of all ages love to camp here and feed the ducks. Canoe rentals are cool too. Fishing, biking, hiking, bar b ques and a play area for the kiddies. The reason I rate this part as very good instead of excellent, is because it is lacking water sports... More
