30 Aug-2 Sep 2002 Site 95 About 1.5 hours NNE of Houston
This park has great sites, a small store, gift shop and a lot of lakes. There is also a really good swim lake without any gators too. The park is a good one as far as camping but the restrooms and shower houses need to be torn down and rebuilt. The price per night is abnormally high too. I guess we are spoiled on the State Park prices. We met with 3 other families from around the state and enjoyed the weekend with them. This is the first time we have met other campers like this.

Rhonda finding something for us to snack on
Hey, Tim cooks, Rhonda does dishes. Fair trade off isnt it?
Here we are taking a break from the bike ride to Inspiration Point
Rhonda says "Do we really have to go now?"
No we really dont. Lets sit down again and enjoy this place a bit longer

Our group dinner
Hey a Dillo in the upright position!
This little raccoon hung around camp most of the weekend
And the Gator loved the lunch meat. It is on your nose silly!
Darn, we hate leaving... We managed to assemble in the last minute for a group shot. Front row L-R Chad, Joe H, Joe R, Tim. Middle row Lindy, Karen, Amber, Rhonda. Back row Zach, Joey and Brandi. We had a total of 4 families this weekend from Texas City, Dickinson, Pasadena and Tyler Texas. We sure did enjoy everyones company and hope to do it again soon.
