See more pictures of Stephen F. Austin State Park here!

Stephen F. Austin State Park is located near Sealy , Texas.   According to the Official 2002 Texas State Travel Guide, Sealy is in is in the Prairies and Lakes region of Texas.  Sealy is about 30 miles west of the Houston city limits.  Houston is the Gulf Coast region. Sealy's weather is not all that different from Houston's weather. It seams like it rains all the time in Sealy and in Houston. The last time we were at Stephen F. Austin State Park, it rained. This time it rained. It just seems like it rains a lot in Sealy.

Both Linda and I like this park. Because of the rain, we haven't really explored the park. The area is flat. It would be good to ride bikes around it. The park is on the Brazos River. I haven't made it down to the river yet. The park has a golf course. You can't miss it on the way in.

We still haven't made it to the San Filipe State Historic Site. On the way into the park from Interstate 10, you will see signs directing you to the Historic Site.

The Texas State Parks web site has information about the park including a map.

Right and below is our campsite. Since we were just passing through Friday night, I didn't get all of our stuff out.

As we were leaving the park, we were attacked by a crustacean. I stopped, got out of the truck to take a picture and the little bugger came after me. He kept turning to face me and if I got close, he would start snapping his little claws.

This begs the question, why did the crawdad cross the road?
