We camped in site 32 at Stephen F Austin State Park in March 2015. 30A electric, water and sewer at all the RV sites. Generous sites. Well maintained older facility. Great hiking trails. Many species of birds. Best sites for privacy and afternoon shade on outside of loop on east or north sides. We would stay here again. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

San Felipe historical site nearby is worth visiting. Closest Walmart and restaurants in Sealy 7 miles away.

Very nice state park with nice sites. This one even has sewer. However, the men's room was filthy, the one commode stall was closed and out of order. Outdated restroom facilities. Nice trails and beautiful setting. We would return. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Motorhome.

Large pull thru sites. Good 18 hole Golf course by entrance gate. Great park staff. Texas State parks have all been great to stay in during our 2 months in Texas. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

After driving in the traffic nightmare of the Katy Freeway, we were glad to get to our campsite at this lovely state park. There are numerous camp sites, but only sites 1-40 have full hookups, but only 30 amps. Sites 1-40 are also all pull through. Other sites have water only, and others are tent only. The campgrounds are vast, and forested with open meadows under the trees, making for a lot of shade. Each of the pull-through sites had a picnic table with a mowed area like some type of yard and patio, really unique. Lots of hiking and biking opportunities. Tons of deer. Rich in bird life. Hawks literally picking squirrels out of trees at our campsite. Purchasing a Texas State Parks Pass costs $70, but all future daily entrance fees are waived, and you get four second night 50% discounts, a good value. Staff was friendly. Trucks on I-10 some three miles distant could barely be heard, but were not annoying. Trains can also be heard from nearby Sealy. We bicycled out of the park, past a nice golf course, to visit the San Felipe State Historic Site. Museum was really nice and informative. For supplies, I would suggest a locally owned grocery store in Sealy called Bills. Great produce, meats, and Latino foods. Relaxing place, and we would camp here again. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground. $22 for full hookups and nice sized lots. We had a church outing here during our camping trip. Lots of room for the kids to run and play. This is a great park so close to Houston. The sites are level and they do a good job keeping the restrooms clean. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Only stayed 1 night but wish we could of stayed longer. Park is only a couple of miles north of I-10 and easy to find. Check in was easy, they have a huge TV on the wall with a map of the park on the screen that shows you what sites are available and which are not and then you pick the site you want, pretty cool. The big trailer loop are all pull through sites, inside and outside sites with a large grassy area in the middle. Our site was fairly level, 30 amp was good, voltage on both legs was 120 and steady, water pressure was good, sewer hookup was standard threaded PVC. Each site has a huge yard with picnic table and fire pit. There are several TV stations available over the air, Verizon signal was good. Lots of hiking trails, there's a golf course right there plus lot's of historical stuff as well. Yes, we will be back. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

No Wi-Fi except at office and we didn’t try it. Antenna TV worked fine. Lots of nature paths so great if you want to walk in the woods. Lot of trees and big RV spots. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

One of the more unique layouts.  A big loop with drive-through sites, each with full hook- ups and a grassy area the size of my back yard! We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Motorhome.

Breath-taking park. Large sites, spaced far apart around a large meadow where deer congregate at daybreak. Short walk to the Brazos river where I thought of wagon trains coming through 150 years ago. We have AT&T phones and air card for the laptop and had no problem with service. Staff are friendly and kind. It's so lovely here we stayed over an extra night. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Motorhome.

We like state parks. This one has sewers, unusual for state parks. Would rate it even higher if it had 50 amp power. Great trails for walking and geocaching. Only problem we had was that they shut the park down for three days of deer herd thinning by hunters and cut our visit short by a day even though we had an on-line reservation. We did get a one day refund. We did not pay the daily $5/person entrance fee because we had an annual Texas parks pass or the park would have been more expensive. We would definitely come here again although probably not in hot months. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Motorhome.

Large level sites, all pull through, a little maneuvering w/ big rig do to location of trees and stumps. 30 amp service with sewer. Paved roads and sites. Each site has large grass area with fire pit and picnic table. Dog friendly with many hiking paths. Verizon voice and data excellent. Very good over the air TV reception. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 6 nights in site 1, which was a pull through, full-hook up 30 amp site. Picnic tables and fire ring are at each site. Beware of the wood they sell as it is very green and nearly impossible to light without a map gas torch. Lots of trees, but not so much that you can't utilize satellite and with our antenna, we got 47 channels out of Houston. The campground hosts were not a picnic; however, they were not mean either. I think they just had no happiness in their lives. We got good connectivity with Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. This park has nice walking trails and is well kept. The best part of the park were the deer, bunnies and butterflies everywhere. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful entrance to park down a farm road about 3 miles from I-10. Clean campsites are all loop asphalt with concrete pad picnic table, lantern post, and fire ring. Camp hosts very helpful and visible every few hours. Wood and ice for sale. Several hiking and bike trails. We were here in early February with 45-55 degree weather at night and cold rain. Yes, will camp here again. Great experience. We camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here one night while driving from Texas to Florida. Park is 2-3 miles from I-10. Check-in was quick and the clerk was very friendly. Adequate space between campers, not elbow-to-elbow like many others. Shaded campsites but open enough to receive satellite signal. Bathrooms are older but were clean. Make sure you keep a flashlight handy if out after dark because there are no street lights. Nice trails for hiking or walking the dog. Overall, very nice stay. We would definitely stop here again.
