“Good stop over point!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Nice campground. Stayed one night and it was very nice. Nice sized lots with good amenities. Camped in a travel trailer. Worth the price of admission

“Trails, swimming, camping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We only spend a few hours here, but it is a nice park with playgrounds for kids, swimming area, many trails, lots of campsites and plenty of day use picnic areas with picnic tables and charcoal grills. There are bathrooms, shower facilities and paved roads. Entrance fee is only $5 per car. It is easily accessed off of I-45 and while you are there, take the couple mile drive across I-45 and visit the Sam Houston Statue visitor's center and get up close and personal with the giant likeness of a Texas hero.

“Huntsville State Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Be prepared to have a picnic lunch or hike thru the woods to make the admission fee worthwhile. They do offer overnite camping sites with electricity and water....no sewage, Dump stations are conveniently located throught the park.

Go early before the heat!
