This cedar cabin was built in the late 1950's and was the first building in Birch Creek Subdivision and was used as the real estate office when selling land for Subdivision. There is a store with a bar and grill next door where you can dance and sing karaoke. The Freedom Ranch Cafe down PR 57 has some of the best home-cooked meals around. Try their fried catfish for starters! Joy Moore bought this fixer-upper in 1986 when the oilfield went under, at a youngster in her early twenties and has owned ever since. Lake Somerville is known for the best fishing lake in Texas. Deer run plentiful on the property and will come up close and personal when fed corn. So, stop and pick up a sack or two of deer corn before arrival. The closest city is about a 20 minute drive to Somerville so make sure to have everything you need before camping. Learn more about this land: Pitch your tent or stay in cozy cabin with accomadations like home, including wifi and tv. Private pond with firepit near Lake Somerville. Enjoy fishing and hiking within walking distance of camp and Birch Creek State Park. Launch boats in park. The fishing is excellent! Relax, you are at the lake! Enjoy your stay.

Birchcreek Cabin
Great Experience All Around !!
It is a beautifully decorated cabin with everything you need and more to be extremely comfortable. It has a great surrounding area and property, with a awesome 2 story deck right on the pond . We spread corn around the yard as Joy suggested and it was awesome the deer started in slowing and eventually there was quite a few and my grandsons were amazed !! What a extra treat to the facilities ! We love it because it super close to Birch Creek State Park which is why planned her place , literly right down the street and you dead end into the park , and we plan to day use the park ,it was perfect !!

Awesome Cabin and Fantastic Host!
We had a wonderful stay here at the Cabin and Great Host! Located right outside the entrance of Birch creek state park this cabin was a perfect spot for my family. We enjoyed the blue lagoon pond area in the backyard which has a very nice deck with tables and a bonus viewing deck above. My daughter enjoyed feeding the fish off the deck. Deer came around at dash and some slept in the yard over night, was a great addition.The cabin itself is cozy with a really nice kitchen and gas stove. The bedroom is 2 bunk beds so four beds with one being a full/queen and worked fine and a nice little bathroom stocked and ready to go.. The place was clean and everything in the kitchen was brand new and had all the appliance one would need for the trip. Loved the Gas stove. The couch in the living room isn’t very comfortable but didn’t use it much. Joy was an extreme help with any questions, very thoughtful, and we ate at the local place she suggested. Has a great gas grill for cooking and we had a great time. Cons: there are stickers in the grass so the little one and us got stabbed a few times (they do have sidewalk for most of the yard to the deck/pond), no toilet paper allowed in toilet, yard privacy from road as it is on a corner lot with no privacy fence. Those were very small things to deal with as the overall experience was great and at the right price. We would for sure stay here again next time visiting the area.
