Lake Somerville State Park -- Birch Creek Cmgrd

We left Corsicana on Tuesday morning and drove toward our next weekend rally at La Grange, TX. We had looked at the state park campgound sites, and decided on the Birch Creek campground at the Lake Somerville State Park near Somerville, TX. When we checked in, they offered us a 'park host' site that was vacant. It had full hookups......... sewer connections are unusual in a state park campground. Here are a few pictures of our site:

There was a lot of wildlife in the park. We were surprised to see so many cardinals. We got a couple of pictures of animals and birds in the park:

The park itself was very nice and well-kept. Here are a few general pictures:
The park also has a "trailer group camping" area. It would be perfect for an RV rally, or the GCRVG campoout. It has a dining hall with tables, stove, microwave, and restrooms. It is surrounded by 14 RV sites with 50amp hookups with water. The cost is $75/day for the hall, plus $16 per night for each campsite.......... and they only charge for the number of sites used. The area is separate from other sites, and secluded. Here are some photos:
