My friend and I camped here last fall, a last minute switch since we got rained out of other plans. We still got some rain in San Houston park, but it was tolerable. The sad hit was the firewood all around the area got damp, so we had fire trouble. Also, the park headquarters does not sell firewood or ice, so we had to hunt around for a gas station that did. The main trail is the Lone Star, which is neat, but you have to yoyo hike if you aren’t backpacking. The bridge to more views near our campground was out—looked like it was under construction. Might be done now! You’ve got to remember to bring cash to use around town and to put in the slot for camp payment. They don’t like credit cards around here.
The landscape of this area is not varied or incredibly interesting, but the tall mossy trees added some swampy grandeur, and we saw quite a lot of wildlife including a large hawk (at the campground) and a coral snake on our hike!
