When you are ready to escape the crowded confines of the big city, this special park will take you deep into our early history as Texans and even further—a lot further. The area was not only a part of the original Stephen F. Austin land grant in the 1820s but also an earlier home to the Karankawa Indians, whose reported cannibalistic habits now only seem fitting for the park’s most popular current resident, the American alligator. Throw in a specific warning for venomous snakes and you have a chance to observe wild animals in their habitat, not yours.
