First Time Visitor - Site looked has if no maintenance had been provided in months. Johnson Grass three feet high, grass burs everywhere, sidewalks not edged. As a retired State Employee I was shocked by the condition of this supposedly sacred ground.

W.G. Jones Park Under Threat - A recent state bill was introduced to allow bulldozing of areas of the W.G. Jones Park for commercial buildings. SB 1964 was recently sponsored by Sen Creighton. It would effectively destroy this park.

First time visitor - This park is lovely. Having a level spot is essential in my van. Lots of shade, electricity, water, fire rings, picnic tables and showers in the bath! What more could you want. Entrance and 2 nights = $52.00

- Its a wonderful place to go horseback riding. The trails are nice wide and very well kept. Mostly shaded, good parking, and with a nice mounting block for those people who need it.

Bald Eagle Siting - 2/27/2015 9:55 AM Trinity County Hwy 287 6.5 Miles South of Groveton, TX. West side of road eating what looked like a fresh dead deer. More than likely road kill.
