| Bait and Switch

Bait and Switch. I paid $91 for the first night. They wanted to charge me $51 for the first night and $41 for subsequent nights. Their website says $20/night. I call this “Bait and Switch”. There is a $21 per day extra for entrance fees for a family of three.($7 per person). That would be $51 for the first night, including $20 campsite fee and $10 reservation fee. To resolve the issue, I bought the $70 Texas State Park Pass. With this pass, they waive the $21 per day entrance fee and give 50%, or $10 off the first night. In the end, it costs $30 per night for five nights. The park itself is great, but I am livid about their website not fully disclosing all fees up front. For example, the website displays a $7 entrance fee, but one assumes it is waived for campers. The fee is PER PERSON, so a family of five would pay up to $35 PER DAY just in entrance fees.

Fantastic park with huge level sites. 30A is $20/night, 50A is $25/night. Each adult over 12yo also charged a $7 entry fee, which is charged every day (unless you have the TX park pass thing). Tons of excellent trails, tons of alligators, an observatory (only open Saturdays), and a decent nature center. Laundry (pay, two washers/dryers) was busted while we stayed.

| Great place to see alligators

Stayed here for 12 days. Office staff was great. Has laundry and hot showers. Several trails to walk. Elm lake has the best alligator sightings. Saw 20 in one day. They have a great nature center where you can pet a baby alligator. Observatory is open Saturday evenings. Highly recommend.
