About

State Park

Looking for a “wild” experience? You will find it at Brazos Bend State Park, just 45 miles from downtown Houston!

Things to Do Nature has top billing at this park. Be sure to bring your walking shoes, binoculars and camera.

Besides marveling at nature, you can also hike and bike, fish, picnic, geocache, ride your horse, and stay over­night. Reserve one of our picnic pavilions or our group hall for your next group gathering.

Pay due respect to alligators, which are common in some areas of the park. Read our alligator safety tips before you come.

Stay Reserve a campsite, screened shelter, or cabin. Bring your nonprofit youth group for a campout.

You can also book campsites that are ready to use, complete with a safari tent, bed and other camping amenities.

Explore We have 37 miles of trails, some of which are wheelchair-friendly. You can experience them on foot, bike or horseback. We have an all-terrain wheelchair for use in the park; call us to reserve it for your visit: (979) 553-5101, x0.

Creekfield Lake Nature Trail: This fully paved .5-mile trail tours a wetland area. You’ll find exhibits with touchable bron­zes of wildlife, an acces­si­ble board­walk and obser­vation deck, and rest areas with shaded benches. Hike and bike trails: Trails circle lakes, connecting with each other and heading into the hardwood forest. Pets must be on a leash no longer than six feet, and must not drink from or enter the lakes. Read about alligator safety on park maps and on signs in the park. Horseback riding: We have 13 miles of multiuse trails. You must bring your own horse and show proof of negative Coggins. Weather conditions can lead to trail closures; call the park for trail updates before your visit.

Great State Park for Hiking/Biking

We stayed in spot 112 in February 2024.  

  • Sites are very nice, wide, and (mostly) level.  
  • Campground is kept clean.  
  • Bathroom is a bit outdated, but still clean.
  • Trails are very nice and appear top be kept up regularly.  Just watch out for the alligators.
  • Don't forget to reserve a spot at the observatory on Saturday nights...

Loved It

We had fun here with our 3 year old granddaughter. Campsite was nice & large, well spaced out. Bathrooms are clean, and the trails are awesome. Saw about 20 alligators on Elm Lake

Great State Park Spacous sites

First. Data. Download enough to watch FIFA final. Upload not the greatest. Visible, Verizon 5G, T-Mobile 5G. All great down but low upload speeds. Too many trees for Starlink

Awesome friendly gate house staff. Big park with camping loop. Will be back
