After being at our current "home base in Pearland for two months, we needed to get back to a bit of hiking and exploring. Our destination- 74 miles north - Hunstville State Park.
|The day use area has a very nice swimming area with a diving platform.|
|We forgot our picnic supplies:(|
|You can rent a paddle boat or a canoe for 30 bucks a day. The lake is called Lake raven is over 200 acres, so plenty of places to paddle around to.|
|You can also fish to your heart's content.|
|We saw four great fishing piers; mostly the catch is catfish and crappie..|
|We did not see any alligators...but this sign is quite serious. Also like it that they limit rods; hopefully, it detours all those people that ine up a dozen rods and hog all the pier so no one else can fish.|
|Question...are they teasing a gator or fishing?|
|Egrets like it here.|
|A few small creeks and streams run throughout the park, so it is nice to have these walkways. Besides not getting our shoes muddy, it helps preserve the terrain.|
|A great screened shelter campsite, close to a fishing pier and trails. They rent for 30 bucks a night. This was our favorite one.|
|I think we can fit our fifth wheel right here though...has a nice view of the lake to the right, and it has full hookups for 25 bucks a night.|
and yes, pets are allowed, on leash...
