Lake Houston Wilderness Park Reviews & Ratings
Great family spot! Drama free! Showers! Park (the park is small though) Camping! Nature Center! Fishing! Creek with beach style hangout spout and good size deck. Over looking the creek, which is used for parties! Also different size cabins you can rent! Overall is a great place to get some family time away from home! And another thing, the staff is nice also!
I camped here about a year ago. I can't wait to go back. I recommend this as a place to camp if you're just learning to camp or need to get your family out in to the wilderness. The camp isn't too far from civilization if you happen to feel uncomfortable. The camping grounds are not crowded and well spaced. If you end up near their drainage you'll need bug spray. All of their hiking trails are easy and fun. This is a great place for easy nature adventures. If you're interested in starting camping in Houston this should be your go to for basic training!
I can't believe I've lived here all of these years I never knew this place existed. It is on par with Huntsville or lake Livingston as far as quality of nature and hiking trails..on the flip side there's not as much camping to be had which I see as a plus because it keeps things a little quieter and more peaceful. I was thoroughly impressed with this place and loved the peaceful trails.
Decent park for group camping. If you expect to see Lake Houston from here, think again. It does have some nice calling facilities and creek access, as well as a large pond they call a lake.
Had a great time here during our visit. The nature center was well taken care of and the staff was very friendly. They had many snakes, turtles, and other creatures. The attendant took out an albino corn snake to let my and several other kids see what a snake feels like. After the nature center we drove around the park and did some hiking. We took a nice hike along the creek where there is a long walking bridge you can cross. My kids really enjoyed the bridge. We also looked at the primitive and A frame campsites. Both were well taken care of and in good shape. The A frame sites are basically primitive but with a A frame structure that serves as a permanent tent. Would be a great option if you want to give your family a primitive camping experience but didn’t want to bother with setting up and maintaining a tent for your stay. There are a couple of good backpacking sites that would only be about a 1 mile hike in and out. Could be a great place for a first easy backpacking trip.
