The park gate will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The rest of the park is closed for flood repairs until further notice. No hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, fishing, paddling, or swimming will be available. Paddling is not currently available in the park. The canoe/kayak launch was destroyed by flooding.

Make sure to call ahead. All of the trails were still closed from Harvey. when I went last week.

Thoroughly enjoyed the village creek trail today. It starts with a great bunch of picnic tables nestled under the forest canopy and meanders along the creek! You can even swim at the end of this trail. Lots of benches skinny the way, and even a covered area close to the end of trail! I'll be back to explore the other trails another time as the rain set in! Nice paths. Clean. Minor wash outs in some areas. Overall a welcoming little hidden treasure of south east Texas!

Been on these trails twice now...they were control burning one area so couldn't get to the trail I really wanted to that I haven't been on yet when my wife and I took my mother-in-law there today. All the trials here are well maintained and pretty easy. You may have to cross water on quite a few of these so be prepared for that. Nice little park that has a little bit of everything.

Nice, easy, well-maintained trails. The Water Oak is the prettiest IMHO. My 6 year old daughter likes to watch the deer on the trails in the morning.

Call before you go to make sure trails aren't flooded.

Awesomely maintained trails. But if it rains a lot some trails will flood and become impassable. Other than the sometime flooded trails, all are well shaded and great for hikes or bikes.

Fun trails, lots of ups and downs, runs parallel to Village Creek and the slough and crosses into slough several times. If it rained recently, it'll be a muddy ride. About 8-10 miles of trail loops.

We started our hike around noon, which was kind of hot, but there is pretty of shade and benches to rest along the way. This trail ends at a sandy beach where you can swim and eat lunch. I wasn't expecting to see much wildlife, but I was surprised when a deer ran across our path. We also saw rabbits and birds. It's a very peaceful walk along village creek and I would recommend it as a fairly easy hike for all ages.

We hiked this trail yesterday and had a great time. We packed a lunch, some drinks, our towles and a couple inflatable tubes. This trail is an in and out. 1 mile in 1 mile out. There is however another trail that loops off this village creek trail. It's easy enough for kids to hike. We spent 5 hours at this spot, flouting and had our picnic. The water was low so it was kinda merky but still was nice to cool off in. This state park were this trail is located is very nice and clean. Now mentioning this is in a state park you have to pay $3 per adult unless you have a Texas state park pass. They have walk-in primitive camp sites, camp sites with electricity, sites for motor homes and campers. They also have a cabin you can book for $80 a night. There is also a playground and picnic sites. I will be going back for sure! Love this place
