One of the nice features of Cedar Hill Park is the more than nine miles of hiking trails cut through the forest surrounding the park.

Lake Charlotte's lake front is very heavily treed and even though the hiking trails parallel it's shore this is a typical view of the lake:

There IS electricity available under a gazebo covered picnic area on the day-use side which you are prohibited from hooking your RV up to but if you needed to charge a phone or a laptop you could do it.

One side of the park has an observation deck that allows viewing of a swamp area that a nearby sign says contains myriad different wildlife (no mention of gators.).

It was so great camping at Cedar Hill Park! Probably due to the winter season I had the park completely to myself with an occasional exception of a kayak fisherman. I think it's really cool that Chambers County, unlike a majority of Texas counties, allows permitted camping in some of it's parks. Plan a camping trip to Cedar Hill Park and Lake Charlotte, you'll really enjoy it!
Thanks for reading!
