Nice park on a small lake. We stayed in 50A, water site, though they have full hook-up sites available. There are lots of trees, so can be difficult to maneuver with a big rig. We are 39ft. The campground hosts are friendly and helpful, the sites are spacious, somewhat level, with fire pit and picnic table. Prairie loop where we were are all back-in sites. We had a good bit of rain during our stay but noticed most sites were dry with no flooding. There are trails, bike paths, fishing and a small nature center. Grocery store and restaurants are 7 mi away. We had a pleasant stay. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We love Huntsville State Park. Not fancy but lots of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, fishing, and swimming. In April there are very few campers and plenty of space and privacy. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Huntsville is closely for shopping and barbecue joints.

We stayed in Raven Hill loop with full hookups at site #16. The sites are very spacious. Ours opened to a wooded common area with large picnic table, fire pit, and plenty of room for the kids to run, play, and ride their bikes along the paved loop. We had a great view of the small but pretty lake.

Yes, the sites in our loop were quite unlevel but it was no big deal for us to use some leveling blocks.

There are numerous excellent hiking trails of various lengths and difficulty. This is an outstanding biking park---either mountain biking along the trails or biking along the hilly park roads.

Shopping and restaurants in Huntsville are only 10 mi away in case you need them.

We got 2 channels via OTA antenna and had a mix of LTE and 4g cell service from AT&T.

We would certainly return to this beautiful park! We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped in site 143 with 50A electric and water at Huntsville State Park near Huntsville, TX in the Prairie Branch Loop in December 2016. Beautiful private site with lakeview. Pad was short for our 37' 5th wheel but parked diagonally across site and it worked great. The sites in Raven Hill Loop with full hook-ups are pull throughs and crowded. The other water/electric loop, Coloneh Camping Area, have many sites that are unlevel front to back. Might be tough for motor homes. Beautiful park. Will definitely return.

We stayed here for a week. We had a lot of fun hiking, swimming and playing at the playground. Unfortunately we were there when they had some type of foliage growing on the beach. We were still able to swim but it was kind weird. We went geocaching/hiking and the trails were clearly marked. My only complaint is that a lot of the RV sites are on such an angle and it was hard to pick one that wasn't. Oh well the fun outweighed the slide in the motorhome. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Motorhome.

Raven hill (sewer) section very nice but it took us over 3 sets of lynx blocks to get level. Other sections (no sewer) are more level. This is still one of our all time favorite parks due to the lake, park size, site size, amenities (horseback riding, canoe rental) and hiking trails. Also, firewood was 2 sticks/$1. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice park that is shaded and grassy. It was a pleasant experience. Well marked and groomed hiking trails that are also used by bicyclists. Busy on the weekend but, there were few campers during the week. Easy to get into and out of park from the highway. Would definitely stay there again. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Short drive from I-45. Good paved roads & shade trees. We got a fairly level, paved pull-thru site with full hookups near Lake Raven. Plenty of room for our 38' RV. $35 includes $25 camping fee, plus $5 admission fee per person. We enjoyed our stay, and would stay again when in the area.

Great park, pretty tight turns throughout. Sites are a little snug, but the scenery makes up for it. ATT Cell Service OK, not many OTA channels for TV. There are a lot of trees, but I did see folks with satellite setups so I am pretty sure you can get a signal. Price was with full hook ups. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Motorhome.

Large park right off the interstate but very peaceful. It was a cold, wet afternoon when we stopped so we didn't get to explore much of the park, but we had a great pull through site with patio, picnic area, and a view of the lake through the trees. We would camp here again. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Motorhome.

On a mid-week overnight stay in January, there were few sites occupied. Many of the sites are very short and obviously not level. Some did not look correctable. Our initial site was far too short for a 30 foot motorhome plus car, and the staff readily changed us to a site we preferred. Each site is paved and includes a concrete picnic table. I did not see any pull-through sites or sewer hookups but may have missed them. The rate shown does not include the $5 per person per day entry charge; our $70 annual pass pays for itself very quickly by waiving the daily entry charge and including camping discounts. The camping area is nicely shaded by well spaced tall pines. The showers are very private with free plentiful water. There was NO TV reception on our antenna, but Verizon wireless worked well, as did Tracfone cell service. The park was on a boil water notice during our stay. We only stayed one night on our way south, but enjoyed the place and would stop in again. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Motorhome.

Good place for an overnight if you are traveling through the area. Showers were like an oven as they had no ventilation. They where sort of clean but not unusable; same with toilet area. I cannot evaluate the park amenities but they seemed adequate. Most sites seemed large and accommodating with shade cover. Gets lots of usage by locals. No over air TV reception; good cell and broadband coverage. One good thing, I was issued a State of Texas Veterans Pass which waived the usage fee. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice, quiet park during the week. It gets crowded and noisy on the weekends. We camped here the week after Easter and there was a lot of litter in some of the camping areas. The staff was doing their best to get the place cleaned up. The restrooms and showers were pretty messy on Sunday, but were clean by Monday afternoon. Wi-Fi service was iffy. We were in site #36 which was too far from the antenna for reliable service. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very shady park. Overall it was OK, but there was not a level site in the campground. Like most state parks this one could stand more maintenance and cleaning in the restroom areas. Good location, not a bad stop over place. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here several times and had a wonderful time. However, staying here during a holiday was disastrous! "Day Campers" are allowed to use the park which caused extreme over crowding. These "Day Campers" littered the park, swimming water, and bathrooms. We felt sorry for the staff who had to clean the park facilities after these people left each day, only to have to start all over again each evening. Almost all of these individuals spoke Spanish only. We were outraged at the number of them that they had to let in. It wasn't fair that we paid $30.00 a night to camp and they were coming in with car loads for $12.00 a day. We couldn't go swimming or use the picnic areas because there was standing room only and they littered the grounds with trash. State parks should be able to limit the amount of people so that the paying campers can still use the facilities that they planned to use for their vacation. They even left dirty diapers in the floor of the showers. It was disgusting! "No pride, No shame." We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Travel Trailer.
