We had a wonderful time in the East Texas Pines! The hosts were so welcoming and helpful. The land was beautiful and peaceful and a perfect place to get away. Would definitely recommend!

We had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the property, did some hiking in the forest. Our dog loved running freely and we enjoyed the firepit and smores. Ty was there to greet us and show us where we can set up our camp.

Following the provided directions we found the site with ease. We did use our 4WD to drive in to the campsite as there are some muddy spots. You would be able to park a car and hike back if needed. We enjoyed cooking over a campfire, watching the stars and bit of a walk back towards the Davy Crockett National Forrest. As we were looking for a quiet, slow time, we found a spot next to a little brook to enjoy a good book. We had the pleasure of learning a bit about the property from Tyler. If you’re looking for a secluded campsite with a reasonable drive from Houston, check it out!

Tyler’s place is out in the boondocks. Secluded and very primitive. It’s along the East Texas 450 Route, it’s a location that can be a night at the beginning or toward the end of the route.

We love the East Texas Piney Woods, and we had a blast camping at Tyler’s land.

Tyler has a few different sites, but you can camp anyplace you’d like. We chose to camp a little deeper in the woods and set up right next to a lovely stream.
Tons of dead, fallen trees are available for firewood. We brought our dog, and she loved roaming off-leash and splashing in the creek. The dogs on property are friendly, and we rarely saw them.

Tyler’s property and the adjacent national forest have incredible hiking, though he warned us the undergrowth would be thicker in the summer. Nearby Ratcliff Lake is fun year-round for swimming and fishing.
This is such a beautiful property for easy primitive camping.

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." - John Burroughs

Our family had a wonderful two nights stay amongst the East Texas Pines. The hosts were warm and welcomed us upon arrival. They even thoughtfully provided a pile of firewood and lighter fluid to get us started. It was the perfect reset button we needed from city life and to get back into the slower, rhythmic groove of nature. The meditative, babbling creek was an added bonus to this site. Highly recommend giving this place a try.
