  • It's a nice park. We've been camping in the wilderness area and it was great. So peaceful and quiet. But if you're not into roughing it they do have other campsites and cabins available. If you have n...  more »

  • I had a great hike at Lake Houston park today. I seen a Bald Eagle sitting atop one of the dead pine trees. He took off before I can get a picture. The park is beautiful plenty of trails to hike on period camping and also cabins. But get ready to pay a small entrance fee when you go to visit.
  • It was beautiful, nestled in the trees!! A small drive from south Houston, I made it in about 40 mins and was very pleasantly surprised! A good amount of trails to explore, and awesome primitive camping. There are even cabins and group camping areas for families and big groups. I'm going back to camp here soon!
  • I go here for the mountain bike trails. It's a great place to ride and just get away. Not many technical features, but still very fun to ride. Plenty of wildlife on the trails.
  • We started our day off hiking listening to the beautiful song birds and bugs singing there songs. Loved the seclusion and serenity of the trail. It gives you that great woodsy feeling. Got to see a Piliated Woodpecker and a humming bird. After that the hike turned into a near battle for our lives as we were swarmed for about 2 hours by a massive amount of horse flies. It was by far the most hardcore challenge we have had on a hike. Dispite the horrendous onslaught I still enjoyed myself so much on the first half of the hike that I would still come back for more, but only if it's not super humid before a rain. We were sweating profusely which is probably what attracted the swarm. There is an awesome nature center here to which is a great teaching tool for the kids.
  • Found out about this hidden place just 30 minutes from the house. Took the family and a friend's family for the weekend. It's a great place to camp quiet and clean and in the middle of the woods. Lots of wildlife all around and miles and miles of hiking trails. I think we did over 7 miles of hiking on Saturday. It is well worth the trip and the prices are very reasonable.
