Huntsville State Park

Forest Trail Region
565 Park Road 40 West Huntsville, TX 75948 (936) 295-5644

This heavily wooded park adjoins the Sam Houston National Forest and encloses the 210-acre Lake Raven. From 1937 to 1942, a seasoned group of African American World War I veterans, working as part of the Civilian Conservation Corps, constructed the combination building, the boat house, and the dam and spillway. The park offers camping, hiking, biking, boating (motor size unrestricted; speed is limited to idle speed), guided horseback trail rides with horses provided by 2E Stables, fishing, swimming in an unsupervised swimming area, canoe and paddle boat rentals, and nature study.
