General Information

Description - Just an hour north of Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, lies a natural paradise.
Stubblefield Lake Recreation Area in the Sam Houston National Forest is for those who need to
escape to a refuge of peace and solitude.

Stubblefield was built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Open year-round, Stubblefield offers some great outdoor experiences, including camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking and picnicking.

Visitors can choose from 30 campsites to park their gear, kick back and relax. Each can
accommodate tent-oriented campers or those with recreation vehicles of up to 20 feet. Nestled in
groves of pine and hardwoods, the sites have tent pads, picnic tables, barbecue grills and lantern
posts. Drinking water, showers and toilet facilities are also available, as is a large picnic shelter.

Home to a variety of fish including largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish, Stubblefield Lake is a fisherman's dream. The calm waters of the oxbow lake invite canoeists, and just five miles downstream lies Lake Conroe, surrounded by marinas, stores and visitor amenities.

If you want a little exercise, hike the 1.1-mile Stubblefield Interpretive Trail. It meanders through awide variety of terrain, including bottomlands and ridgetops. The trail also takes you past several seismic holes, remnants of oil exploration since the 1923s. And, if you want a longer trek, there's a nearby access to the Lone Star Hiking Trail which offers an opportunity to see the "back country" of Southeast Texas.
