    Huntsville, Texas

    It took 20 years of development, including weathering a flood and a World War, but in 1956 the community of Huntsville, Texas, finally got their own state park. Located just 10 miles south of town, in the Sam Houston National Forest, this 2,000-acre park of pine and hardwood forest is situated around man-made Lake Raven. Today, locals and visitors alike flock to Huntsville State Park for its hiking trails, water recreation and prolific wildlife. With so many outdoor activities to choose from, a good first stop is the park’s Nature Center. Here you can get information about the local flora and fauna, including the more than 250 species of birds, plus a variety of mammals and alligators, that make the park their home.

    Campers at Huntsville State Park have access to 160 tent and RV campsites in three camp areas near the shore of Lake Raven: Prairie Branch, Raven Hill and Coloneh. Full- and partial-hookup RV sites are available, and can accommodate vehicles/trailers up to 60 feet. All sites are equipped with picnic tables, grills, and lantern posts, and drinking water faucets are shared between sites; some sites are ADA accessible. Each camp area provides flush restrooms, showers, playgrounds, picnic areas near the lake, fishing piers, and boat launches. There is a dump station located in the Raven Hill camp area. The park also has two camping cabins for rent. Campsite rates range from $15–$25/night, plus park entrance fee; cabins are $60/night, plus entrance fee.

    When you’re ready to play on the water, head down to the lakeshore where you can take a dip in the designated swim area, rent a canoe or kayak (or put in your own) for paddling around the lake, or cast a line for crappie, perch and largemouth bass. A shop near the Prairie Branch day-use area has groceries, ice, fishing supplies and beverages. If you’re up for some roaming or wildlife watching, pick up a trail map and birding guide and go explore more than 20 miles of multiuse paths and nature walks. From the park’s bird blind, you can scan for a variety of songbirds and waterfowl. The park also offers ranger-led nature programs, and there are Junior Ranger activities for the kids.

    Once we saw the beauty of the property, we knew we had to keep it as wild and pristine as possible. On 6.5 acres the perfect number of sites was 18 keeping the large house for VRBO rental (coming soon).

    Buck Acres is technically not even an RV park, we just wanted to share our property with fellow travelers so we added some gravel, and provide full 50/30/20A plug-ins and water. We use HipCamp and The Dyrt for bookings.

    Buck Acres really is "close to everything but away from it all", still being close to city amenities, including Lake Conroe. Less than 1 mile to April Sound and the largest marina on Lake Conroe, 8 minutes to Wal-Mart, but peaceful and quiet on our forested property.

    As full-time RV nomads ourselves we know RV park rates are getting crazy, this is our way of trying to help the community. We've done everything we can to keep rates down. The only amenities we offer are Wi-Fi, electricity, water, and an ADA porta john that is cleaned every week.

    Affordable RV parks shouldn't be sweltering hot parking lots where you're packed in like sardines! At Buck Acres we have 100' tall hardwoods and pines that have been trimmed up 60' for the safety of you and your rig! Please be aware falling limbs are still a hazard, but we have the property trimmed professionally every year.

    Buck Acres is still under construction and it is a labor of love. All proceeds go immediately back into the park (We have six electric/water sites fully functional)

    Bring your family, pets, and friends - tents and RVs welcome!

    Please Note:

    Quiet Hours are 10pm - 8am

    Please keep open fires within designated fire rings Keep pets on leash - Clean up any pet waste

    Dispose of garbage in designated trash receptacles

    Guests are responsible for the behavior of their children & pets

    Guests are responsible for all damage or destruction of property and any injury to persons caused by the guest, or by their family, visitor(s), or pets.

    Do not walk through other people’s campsites. Respect the boundaries and their privacy.

    Management reserves the right to refuse service or terminate stay for any violations.

    We do not have caretakers on the property 24/7 but are usually there for any urgent needs and will sometimes have fun activities going on at the property that our visitors are welcome to join in (bonfires and such), but since the campsites are at the front of the property, it will not disturb the guests and will not go on beyond quiet hours (10pm and 6am).
