Sam Houston National Forest

AKA: 208 OHV Trailhead, Kelly's Pond Campground, 233 Trailhead, 234 Trailhead, Northwest Trailhead, Lake Conroe

Summary


This popular area actually consists of two separate trail systems located on the western and eastern sides of northern Lake Conroe. The Sam Houston National Forest has about 85 miles of designated multiple-use trails that is a mix of hardpack and sand, mud and several creek crossings. Camping with direct trail access can be found at Kelly's Pond Campground, which has eight sites, each with a picnic table, fire ring and lantern post. The campground is located in the center of a flat, grassy field, so there is plenty of turn around room for large trailers. There is no fee charged for camping but a permit is required if using the trails.
