Texas Swimming Hole Guide
Village Creek Offers Access to Swimming, Kayaking, and Camping
It is a top destination for canoe and kayak enthusiasts from across the nation.
Locally, it is one of our most popular Southeast Texas fishing holes.
This is a great region to discover, so consider extending your visit with one of their tent camping sites or the rental cabin.
If you are ready for your canoe or kayaking trip, several outfitters are available. You can also launch your own from the Village Creek State Park boat launch.
Hiking and nature enthusiasts will appreciate the eight miles of hiking trails. Keep an eye out for red and grey fox, alligators, bald eagles, red tail hawks, osprey, kingfisher, wood ducks, snapping turtles, white tail deer, beaver, river otters, bobcats, and feral hogs.
Many of our readers fish Village Creek State Park year-round reporting consistent catches of largemouth bass, Kentucky bass, perch, and catfish.
Are you new to fishing? Village Creek State Park is a great place to give it a try. They have fishing supplies available to loan to the public. Don’t have a fishing license? Your family won’t need one within the boundaries of the park.
