My son and I were in Huntsville and remembered how beautiful the state park was in our previous short visit. So we spent Saturday night at Huntsville state park. We had no reservation and the ladies at the check in office helped us nicely. We rented a screened shelter (which had electricity and water) so it felt more like a... More

GOOD: scenery, trails maintained, little to no-foot traffic on the trails, very clean park, NO large dangerous wildlife "bears, mountain lions, and rattle snakes", family or large group friendly BAD: humidity, mosquitoes, fee to enter the park, sandy trails, roots...

Plenty of shade at the trails. Some of the trails were closed due to construction; however, you're able to get around. Although we only walked one trail, we will definitely return on a next visit. I recommend an annual pass for $70 if you intend to continue visiting State Parks in Texas. It's a great deal. Park restroom was very... More

Great park not far up the road from Houston on I-45 North. Many fine campsites, hiking & biking trails. Paddle sports on Raven Lake. The park can get crowded so make your arrangements ahead of time in prime season - fall & spring.

The park is well kept. The staff is nice. There are lots of nice camp sites including screened in sites and AC cabins. We caught a few fish.

We brought our family out to explore the park and certain parts of the park was extremely busy-near the store and swimming area. Some of the groups were very loud. However, we were able to find a spot away from the crowd. There are several trails for hiking/biking and those were so peaceful and easy enough for a family with... More

The park is definitely one of my favorite places in Huntsville as it has a combination of sight seeing and activities. I particularly loved horse riding, and canoeing and its a safe place to just take walks in the woods and observe plants, insects and nature in general. I loved ot
