Absolutely beautiful park. We had most of the park to ourselves. Our site was on the lake and SO quiet and lovely at sunset. We didn't have enough time to do any hiking but it looked like it would have some nice trails. The only complaint is the bathhouse situation. SO COLD ! No heat whatsoever and the water for... More

We have visited Huntsville State Park many time in the past, and have always been captivated by the natural beauty of the site. A gorgeous lake, with a multitude of scenic views to be enjoyed, as well as fishing and perhaps even an alligator sighting! Nice, old-fashioned playground for the kids, where they can learn that you don't need wifi... More

I love this place! I come here a lot with my dog to go running. You can enter the park on the Lone Star trail for free, but it's always nice to support the state park by paying a visitation fee! Watch out for ticks - I frequently find them on my dog after we run there.

I hike and walk here because it is just minutes from home. It has a pretty little lake. Great camp sites. It does have alligators, but i have never seen one.

We went to Huntsville State Park last Saturday. This is was pretty good day. They have horseback riding, kayaking, catamaran, volleyball place. You just need to arrive early to be able to do everything. Or you can stay overnight camping. Highly suggest. Park is very clean with plenty of picnic tables. the only thing we were not luck with fishing.... More

My husband and I love hiking here! There's a trail for every level, whether that be biking, running or hiking. Come prepared with a good pair of shoes, sun screen, mosquito repellent, water and a towel. You will sweat! Bonus. ...there are showers available by the campgrounds so you don't have to drive home feeling sticky. A wonderful time away... More

We went to the State Park for a birthday party at the Raven Lodge. Although I've lived in Huntsville since 1971, I can count on one hand the number of times I have visited the State Park. I must say, if you are into this sort of thing, it was really nice and well kept and well patrolled. Do NOT... More

It is a beautiful park located only a few miles from Huntsville, Texas. It has a 210 acre lake, 160 campsites, 32 shelters, picnic areas, a swimming area, 19 miles of hiking trails, canoe rentals, food concessions, and a store with groceries and souvenirs. The piney woods offer a beautiful setting, and the park was well maintained on our last... More

Beautiful park but has a serious fly and some kind of tiny little black biting insect problem. It was very hard to enjoy our visit because of this.u entire family is covered in bite marks. Swimming area is nice.

Many trees, nice lake, facilities are clean, staff is friendly. I live in Huntsville and my daughter and I visit there for certain functions often. We are not "campers". He have hiked the trails and they are clearly marked and clean. Bike riding through the park is a must. Lots of wildlife and watch out for the alligators!
