Visit one of the best parks in the Houston Parks family, Lake Houston Wilderness Park at 25840 Fm 1485 in New Caney. The park encompasses 4,786.6 acres of wooded parkland, approximately 30 minutes north of downtown Houston off of Highway 59 near the town of New Caney. Once a state park, the park was taken over by the City of Houston in 2007 and has become one of the gems in the area. Cabins and walk-in campsites are available for rental year round with activities such as hiking and biking on 12 miles of hike and bike trails, kayaking on tree-lined creeks, and horseback riding on 8 miles of equestrian trails. Bring your own bikes, watercraft, and horses. With fall on the way (honest), this is a great park to go camping either in tents, cabins or the Lazy Creek Lodge.
