The park is very nice overall, with lots to do and has lovely scenery. This was our first trip in our big rig (42' camper) and I wanted to add a review based on that experience. Roads are tight! Lots of trees lining the road that makes turning a careful endeavor. Sites vary in length. We had a relatively easy... More

Huntsville State Park is one of my favorite places to RV camp and we don't mind bringing our grandchildren. The kids love it! Entering into the Park ~ takes you on a winding road through the vast piney woods that engulf the area. Wildlife is abundant so drive slowly and be aware of your surroundings. Check-in is a snap before... More

We were there recently for the Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile Trail run. The park is absolute beautiful with the lake and lots of great hiking trails.

We loved this park. We did several of the trails. The Rangers were very helpful and the trails were well maintained and marked. Our map was easy to follow. We loved how you could start on one trail and cut over to other trails. It's laid out well for a short or long hike. The boardwalks were nice too. It... More

Huntsville State Park is a great place to get away. While only about an hour north of Houston, it is well off the beaten path. It offers a variety of day activities as well as camping in all forms from tents to RVs to shelters (2 of which have A/C). Camp spots are on first come first serve basis and... More

Wonderful place to go for camping, hiking, small boating and MTN biking. I personally go her for the MTN biking and the trails are plenty and scenic. People here camp via RVs, campers and tents and they all say great things.

The park was renovated after one of the hurricanes (either Ike or Rita). The spaces are paved, with many that accomodate longer RV's. We stayed at the end of the loop in Prairie Branch section, near the trail head in space 140. It is a nice large space, not too close to other campers. The road was quite busy with... More

The park is not huge but big enough that the hiking trails are not short which I find to be a problem at some state parks. We liked it, it was a cold weekend during non peak time of year so getting a big private camp spot overlooking the lake was no problem. Park is well kept and bathrooms seemed... More
