Lake Houston

Lake Houston is one the most beautiful reservoirs in the state and encompasses close to 5,000 acres of naturally wooded parkland, where overnight camping is available. Home to Dwight D Eisenhower Park, this quiet refuge is one of the few places in Texas that offers picturesque fall foliage, 12 miles of hike and bike trails, kayaking, equestrian trails and picnic areas. Residents are also just moments from the lake at Alexander Deussen Park, which also features trails, playground, multipurpose fields and picnic pavilions.

Along the waterfront, King’s Harbor offers shopping, restaurants, and entertainment all year, with Champagne Tuesdays at The Tasting Room, Yoga under the Stars at Lifetime Fitness, even live music on Sundays.
