Discover Village Creek State Park

Village Creek State Park lures outdoor enthusiasts with lush longleaf pine savannahs, scenic paddling routes, and incredible biodiversity. It occupies more than 1,000 acres of the Piney Woods ecoregion and has been welcoming visitors since 1994. Spend your days relaxing on white sandy beaches, cooling off in crystalline water, and exploring forested nature trails. As one of the only free-flowing creeks in Texas, Village Creek also boasts some of the best fishing in the Lone Star State.

Planning a getaway to Texas? Book an RV in Hardin County and you can sleep under the stars at the Village Creek State Park campground. Venture further afield and you'll find other Gulf Coast gems like Sea Rim State Park, Mustang Island, and the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge. At an hour and a half from Space City, Village Creek State Park is always popular with urbanites wanting to camp in an RV near Houston.

Getting Outdoors

Village Creek, a sandy-bottomed tributary of the Neches River, flows through the park and offers some of the best paddling routes in Texas. It's best explored on the 21-mile Village Creek Paddling Trail, which takes you past towering East Texas pines and white sandy beaches. Watch for beavers, otters, and turtles, as well as alligators basking on the shoreline. Multiple access sites make it easy to plan a relaxing one-hour paddle or embark on a full-day adventure. Bring your own canoe or rent gear from one of the nearby outfitters.

More than eight miles of trails crisscross through the park and make it easy to explore Village Creek on foot or by bike. The Lil’ Paws Nature Trail is geared towards kids, while the challenging Water Oak Trail showcases wildlife-rich swamps. Thanks to the Texas State Parks Tackle Loaner Program, it's easy to fish in Village Creek. Head to the visitors' center to borrow rods, reels, hooks, sinkers, and bobbers. If you're lucky, you could reel in catfish, bass, and sunfish – perfect for a fish fry back at your site. Remember, alligators live in the park, so be sure to read up on safety tips before you cast a line.

Throughout the year, Village Creek State Park runs a dynamic lineup of guided nature hikes, night walks, campfire talks, stargazing programs, and other activities. Kids love the Junior Ranger program, which offers a chance to earn an official Village Creek State Park badge. Birders will be in their element with the chance to spot more than 200 species, including owls, woodpeckers, herons, egrets, and red-shouldered hawks.
