Sam Houston Jones State Park
Because the caretakers of this 1,087-acre park have worked to keep the land in its natural state, abundant wildlife inhabits the area. Tree-filled lagoons and a mixed pine and hardwood forest combine to create a unique natural environment. The bird watching is always excellent, but at certain times of year, nearly 200 species of birds can be seen at or within 30 miles of the site. The numerous waterways in this area make water sports a natural highlight at the park. Two boat launches are conveniently located on the West Fork of the Calcasieu River. The three hiking trails make strolling or serious hiking, pleasurable. Particularly interesting is the old stagecoach road, which hikers may travel to explore the park and the banks of the various tributaries to the Calcasieu River.
We are BIG fans of Sam H.J. State Park. There are 2 playgrounds, VERY clean facilities, numerous camper slots, A beautiful lake to fish or take a boat ride in, and lastly, WE LOVE TO GO DEERSPOTTING at night. You will definitely spot a deer(or two or three or twelve)!!!
