This is a roadside pullover with signage and a fishing pier.

San Patricio is a tributary that runs into the Sabine River..Located in the wooded area, was a "natural hot spring" where people visited to get the water to be used for medicinal purposes.

The park area includes two nice picnic sites with charcoal grill facilities. Across the road is more "wetland" - great for bird watching or fishing!

Unfortunately, this park has not been well maintained and suffers from some vandalism, so it isn't all it could be, but is still a nice place to visit and fish a little. Some really nice catfish have been brought in from the fishing pier!
