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.

Remember, alligators live in the park, so be sure to read up on safety tips before you cast a line.
