Camping at Cedar Hill SP

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.

Entrance Fees:
Per person (children 12 and under are not charged) - $7 per day, for day use, $5 per day for overnight stays. The park gate opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 10 p.m.
Camping:
Campsites with electric and water hook ups (355 sites) are $20 - $30 per night. There is a limit of 8 people per campsite and the camping fees do not include the per-person entrance fees. There are also 30 hike-in primitive campsites that cost $10 per night. Rentals:
Live Adventure Kayaks - Single and two-person kayak rentals are available along with Mountain Bike Rentals from March through October. (214)[masked]

    So I got two sites with some trees for a hammock. And looks like about 6 tents could fit in the area. Plus if we need more room there is another site we can take too.

    I will be bringing my 3 fishing poles and supplies in case anyone wanted to fish. Also, now there is 2 sites reserved I will make sure these sites are next to each other since I'm going to be out there on Friday. So we should have enough space for tents and the people coming.
