  1. Lake Houston Wilderness park

  2. Lake Houston wilderness park

    Lake Houston Wilderness Park sits on 4,786.6 acres of wooded parkland and is the only park that permits overnight camping in the City of Houston park system.

    Take your bike on the Forest Trail. You can continue on this trail or divert onto the Peach Creek Trail. Be very careful though as the Forest Trail can sometimes be very narrow at times. The Peach Creek Trail is very easy to ride on and I would suggest this trail for the whole family.

    If you decide to stay in one of the available shelters, you have to take into consideration the fact that there are no parking areas close to them. You however have the option of parking your vehicle close-by to unload whatever you might need to stay in the shelter then park over by the park headquarters. There are two A-frames located on one side of the lake and cabins located on the other side of the lake.
