Ah! There is simply nothing like the great outdoors. The smell of fresh air, the sound of the breeze swaying 100-year-old pine trees, the beautiful view of land that is untouched…nature is something that frees us from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Many visitors prefer to stay in a hotel with modern amenities, but for those who want a more rustic escape, Cypress Black Bayou Park and Recreation Area has the perfect spot to enjoy a getaway, away from it all.
The park is a great place to go swimming, fishing, camping, hiking and it even has a petting zoo and comprehensive nature center, well-known in the area for being home to a Bald Eagle. Whether your idea of becoming one with nature involves tents, RVs or the modern convenience of a cabin, camping at Cypress Black Bayou is easy and inexpensive starting at about $14 a night for camping fees, $20 a night for RV camping and $65 a night for cabin rentals.
Water sports and boating are extremely popular on Cypress Lake and Black Bayou, so it’s no surprise that during the warmer months, the lake is bustling with area boaters. Launch fees and boating permit pricing is available by clicking here.
