We always enjoy our stay at Cagle. In this last visit at the end of November, there were very few people in the campsite. It was nice and quiet. We enjoyed kayaking from the bridge at the Stubblefield campground. While kayaking from the boat ramp at Cagle, I saw two juvenile bald eagles. We have seen other bald eagles during... More

Beautiful Park, small and lots of trees, and large spots. We do RV camping. They have everything you need for a relaxing stay!

Nothing touches my soul more than nature and there is plenty of it here. A beautiful place to picnic and enjoy the day. I didn't stay long, but I'd love to go back and find out more about the areas inside the forest.

My friend and I (in our 30s) spent a few hours hiking the Lonestar trail, a covered forest hike that had views of Lake Conroe for parts of the hike. To manage expectations, this was a nice hike (for this area), but you are not going to see a grand finale at the end (i.e. Waterfall, overlook, ridges, etc). The... More

Lake Stubblefield Campground is a wonderful place to go tent camping. Most of the sites are large and separated from each other by trees and brush. Restrooms and showers were very clean. One of the best fishing places in the area.

The Cagle campground offers 47 sites with electric (up to 50 amp), water and sewer hookups organized into two loops. The sites have good separation and all have reasonably level hard surface pads. Facilities included restrooms with flush toilets, sinks and hot showers. The showers are push button auto shut-off . To me this is would normally be a negative.... More

I enjoyed my hike, but I would consider pants. After seeing some of the other reviews, I was on the lookout for poison ivy and found quite a bit. The trail I walked was pretty covered, so it did take some attention not to walk through it.

I've lived in Texas for 20yrs, hiked the Lonestar trail in Huntsville state park (well maintained trails) several times. I drove 3.5 hrs to Double Lake Park to camp, hike a section of the trial w/my dog that we have never done. We started at Double Lake and headed west to trail head #11 @ 2025. The trail was over...

We loved our RVing trip to the Am Houston national Forest. We stayed in Cagle campgrounds and they were so clean and well done. The grass was mowed and the restrooms were clean. It was just an overall great experience and we will definitely stay there again. We also enjoyed going into Huntsville and exploring!!!!

We were looking for a fun weekend outing and wanted to be outdoors. This was the perfect destination. Several miles of marked trails that were fairly easy to navigate. The trails were well kept and the mosquitoes were at a minimum. Enjoyed a picnic lunch at a table by the lake! Wear your hiking shoes and be sure to hydrate.
