Things To Know Before You Come

Mosquitoes, chiggers, and ticks are seasonally common in the Big Thicket, so come prepared with repellent. The nearest stores are 8 miles away in Kountze.

Big Thicket National Preserve allows primitive backpacking but does not have developed campgrounds. Developed campgrounds are available at several federal facilities, state parks, and privately-run sites nearby. Please check online for a directory of local camping options.
