This is by far one of my favorite camping sites and is extremely beautiful this time of year with abundance of wild flowers. With great trail systems for hikers and Mountain bikers. However, if there is rain these trails due close to prevent erosion. Here is a little overview of the park:
Cedar Hill State Park in Cedar Hill, TX is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the Metroplex. Just 10 miles from Dallas, the natural setting of the park's 1,826 acres and the 7,500 acre Joe Pool Lake leave you feeling you have left the city much further behind. Activities include swimming, fishing, boating, camping, birdwatching, mountain biking and hiking. All of these activities are well supported by the facilities Cedar Hill State Park provides for visitors: more than 300 campsites, hundreds of picnic tables and barbeque grilles, the Joe Pool Marina, miles of biking and hiking trails, and preserved natural habitats that support a diverse flora and fauna.
