Nestled on the banks of the Brazos River, Stephen F. Austin State Park provides the opportunity to get up close to nature. Located just 30 minutes from the outskirts of Houston, this quiet and peaceful park is a nice escape from the busy city life. Come out for just a day and enjoy the many hiking and biking trails, the picnic area, or spend the night, with a choice of four types of campsites. The park also offers group facilities, for day or overnight use. Activities include picnicking, camping, fishing, hiking, biking, birdwatching, and geocaching.
