      Lake Houston Wilderness Park encompasses 4,786.6 acres of wooded parkland, approximately 30 minutes north of downtown Houston off of Highway 59 near the town of New Caney. It is the only park in the H.P.A.R.D. system where overnight camping is available. A vehicle bridge over Peach Creek has opened the entire park to access by automobile. Cabins and walk-in campsites are available for rental. Activities include hiking and biking on 20 miles of hike and bike trails, kayaking on tree-lined creeks, and horseback riding on 13 miles of equestrian trails. (Bring your own bikes, watercraft, and horses). The park is a wilderness park and is heavily forested, so visitors need to be aware that wildlife in the park includes several species of snakes. Please remember that conditions on natural waterways change without warning, so keep safety in mind as you paddle the creeks.
