Village Creek State Park

, located about 3 miles southeast of Lumberton, covers 1,090 acres in the Big Thicket region of Texas. The park, which was opened in 1994, offers easy access to the 21-mile long Village Creek Paddling Trail. You can grab some fishing gear from the park’s office, which is located about 10 miles north of Beaumont, Texas, and fish for sunfish, catfish, and bass. Located 100 miles northeast of Houston, Village Creek State Park features 8 miles of hiking and biking trails for you to explore. It's one of the few parks in the state with a free-flowing creek, so it's a great place to enjoy some canoeing while you soak up the incredible scenery.
