This is quiet little State Park on the edge of the Davy Crockett National Forest. They have five RV campsites with full hookups for only $15 a night. Other campsites are available with water and electricity for $13 a night. The park has a dump station. The RV sites are not level but they are asphalt. Campsites include a picnic table, fire ring with grill-top, a lantern post, and also a waist high cooking grill. The towering pines and oaks are magnificent and there are plenty of birds and other wildlife.The Park Ranger and staff are very friendly and helpful. This park offers free firewood! The park office sells bagged ice for $2 a bag.

We enjoyed the peaceful serenity of camping among the East Texas pines. It was so quiet. We even had an armadillo come into camp after dark for a short visit. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Wal-Mart for all your grocery needs in Crockett only 19 miles away. The Wal-Mart is at 1225 E Loop 304, Crockett, Texas.

There is a lot to do at MISSION TEJAS STATE PARK besides hiking, fishing, and bird-watching. Local attractions include Caddoan Mounds State Historic Site; Jim Hogg Historic Site; TexasState Railroad; Davy Crockett National Forest; Fairfield Lake State Park; Texas Forestry Museum, located in Lufkin; and Ratcliff Lake Recreation Area (a U.S. Forest Service park, 12 miles away, that has a nice swimming beach).

I've only gone fishing there, and I won't camp there in a camper much less a tent on account I didn't like how the sites look. The campground wasn't well kept the last time I was there. Most areas are unlevel, from camp sites to everywhere else. There's 1 pond for fishing. It needed cleaning the last time I was there. Yet I must admit that the campground is well shaded for the most part. It does have hiking trails, and there's a pavilion for get togethers. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Tent.

There is a town called Alto in which is just over 12 miles away. There's also Crockett, 21 to 22 miles away, so you might want to have food with you, if you stay there.

This was our first camping in a new RV, a small 22-foot. Called ahead and had a pull-through site (#9) for us when we arrived, and found it without any issues. (It probably wouldn't have fit anything bigger than a 30 footer, though.) The site was very nice, tree shaded, except it wasn't level. We hiked on a couple of the trails which were nice. All the shade made for a surprisingly cool late afternoon/evening/morning. We very much enjoyed our experience there and look forward to returning. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.

Depending on what you are looking for, this is a great park. It is very small, not near anything (no restaurants or stores nearby), and the sites are fairly tight and not very level. Only a few looked suited for an RV (the pull-throughs); most of the back-in sites looked too small for anything but a tent or pop-up. However, if all that is OK with you, then this is a great park. It is one of the prettiest, quietest, most peaceful parks we have stayed in. There are a lot of trails through the pine woods, a nice pond, and the mission replica and the relocated and restored cabin are very interesting. We went out of our way to visit this park, and I'm glad we did. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground, but not big-rig friendly. We saw one guy with a 40' 5th wheel try six times to get to his site before mastering it. Lots of hills, curves, and tight spaces, but if you can get in, it's worth it. Part of an old road used by Davy Crockett, James Bowie, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston, and others, can still be seen in the park. Spotless restrooms and showers. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice but very small state park. Only about four sites had full hook-ups. Very quiet. Office very friendly and helpful. Only stayed one night while passing through. Only one TV station could be received part time. We would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean, quiet, nice size sites, in the country. Nice to get away for a week-end or a week. Excellent trails for walking and bicycling. Will definitely revisit! We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.

Very peaceful. Located in the Davey Crockett National Forest. The slip I used was easy to get in and out of. Some may be a little harder since it is hilly, but all sites were level. Would return and recommend. Clean restrooms and the park officials are very nice. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our maiden voyage in our travel trailer. This is a small wooded park in the Davy Crockett National Forest. The campsites were very well maintained. The trails were scenic and easy to moderate. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely wonderful park. Very well shaded so the satellite couldn't come in. The historical factors here are well worth the stop. Caddoan Mounds is very close by and has a great visitors center, a must see. The sites were a bit tight, but did accommodate our 36 ft of class A. There was little maintenance on foot bridges going on and will be fantastic when they're finished, the trails to walk are great, mowed and clean. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park. Excellent log cabin and mission for viewing. Drawbacks are the park is very small, only a few sites. We stayed in site 14 and it was huge - big enough - for 43 ft motorhome +. Only three or four sites have sewer, ours did not. If they had more sites with sewer, park would get a higher rating. I'd go back. We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.

Great family fun. Grand children loved the small fishing pond and Caddoan Mounds nearby. The old mission was a nice find. Park staff were wonderful. This is a jewel to find in East Texas We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice folks and a decent place. The pull throughs were all taken by fifth wheels and we had some amount of trouble backing our 33 ft coach into one of the other spaces. The sites are rather close and facilities are just a little run down. Some nice hiking trails We camped at Mission Tejas State Park in a Motorhome.
