Huntsville State Park lies in the piney woods of the Sam Houston National Forest, near the western edge of the Southern Pine Belt. The heavily-wooded park, dominated by loblolly and shortleaf pines typical of the East Texas Pine Belt, provides attractive camping and picnic areas and encloses the 210-acre Lake Raven. Lake Raven, fed by three major creeks, offers fishing for crappie, perch, catfish, and bass. Hiking trails have been constructed so that wildlife and birds can be observed in a natural setting.
Lake Raven, fed by three major creeks, offers fishing for crappie, perch, catfish, and bass. Hiking trails have been constructed so that wildlife and birds can be observed in a natural setting. White-tailed deer, raccoon, opossum, armadillo, migratory waterfowl, and fox squirrel are just a few of the creatures that may be discovered in their natural environment. Occasionally, alligators may be observed in the lake.
The park features screened shelters, a screened group picnic pavilion and recreation hall, trailer dump station, restrooms with and without showers, Texas State Park Store, fishing piers, boat rental, boat launching, ramps, hiking, and mountain bike trails.
