Your guide to Lake Houston

All About Lake Houston

In a serene spot where the San Jacinto River meets Caney Creek, Lake Houston was created nearly 70 years ago as a water supply for the Texas city that bears its name. It’s now home to Lake Houston Wilderness Park, whose 5,000 acres of surrounding forest serve as an open door to natural beauty for Houstonians. Located just 15 miles from downtown Houston, the heavily forested area offers 20 miles of pathways and routes that beckon mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners, and horseback riders from all over the city. Anglers head to the 18-square-mile reservoir to try their luck at hooking white crappie, largemouth bass, and catfish. And you’ll find several launch spots available for kayaking or boating.

Photographers will enjoy capturing the wild, natural surroundings and perhaps some of the resident deer and birds. The lake is a protected waterfowl sanctuary, in fact, encouraging several species of water birds to make their homes in the area. Lake Houston lies in a central location between several thriving neighborhoods and towns, such as Kingwood, Summerwood, and Atascocita. The area has a growing craft ale scene, with microbreweries, taprooms, street food, and arcade games.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Lake Houston?

The climate of the Houston area is hot and humid throughout most of the year, relieved only by short, mild winters. If you visit between June and September, you’ll be met with hot Gulf Coast weather. If you’re hoping to spend much of your time outdoors as you visit lakes near Houston with cabins, consider spring, when the local wildlife emerges and the bluebonnets blossom. You can also witness the vibrant autumnal colors on the hiking trails in fall. If you book your Lake Houston vacation rental in October, you’ll discover pumpkin patches in the area. Several nearby towns also host harvest festivals and Halloween celebrations.

What are the top things to do in Lake Houston?

Kayaking at Spring Creek

You can rent a kayak (or bring your own) and launch it at Pundt Park in Spring Creek, 20 miles northwest of Lake Houston. Over the course of several hours, you’ll follow the flow down San Jacinto River and onto the lake. The canopies of green trees offer a sheltered route, and the gentle streams are suitable for all levels of kayakers. You can even picnic afterward on the lakeside.

Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens

Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens are just off the lake, with nearly 400 acres of lush greenery to explore. Expert botanists and horticulturalists cultivate a wide range of species in the gardens, from tropicals to herbs, bamboo, cypress, and ferns. There’s a walking trail, as well as ponds, plazas, and a remembrance area. The botanic gardens also have excellent facilities for picnics and barbecues, so be sure to pack your lunch.

San Jacinto Trail Loop

San Jacinto Trail Loop passes through swamplands, across grassy paths, and along dirt trails in the Dwight D. Eisenhower Park at the south end of the lake. Deer and hawks live in the area, and alligators are known to make an appearance — so stay vigilant. Ample parking is available, so you can just turn up and follow the signs.
