Huntsville State Park is a CCC built state park, about 65 miles north of Houston, and it offers something for everyone who visits. Our family of 5 (6 if you count the dog, which we do) has visited many state parks and campgrounds across this great state. Though we love all of them in different ways, Huntsville State Park holds a special place in our hearts. Tucked away in the Sam Houston National Forest, it is an emerald-colored gem of a park.
If you want to combine a trip to pick fresh flowers and exploring a State Park, this is your itinerary for a family road trip. Pilot Point is conveniently located approximately 2.5 hours north of Waco, and about 1 hour & 15 minutes north of DFW. It makes a fun, easy day trip with kids & provides some beautiful photo opportunities.
Most people have heard of the Grand Canyon. However, the second largest canyon in the United States lies in the heart of the Texas Panhandle. It's called The Palo Duro Canyon. It's just five hours from our home in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
