Enjoy quiet and solitude while watching the sun rise over Raven Lake. Enjoy panoramic views of the lake and surrounding woods from the fishing pier.
Huntsville State Park's 250 acre Raven Lake is a perfect spot for catching a sunrise. Watch for Egrets along the shoreline while enjoying the solitude of the early morning hour. Hang out on the fishing pier and take in the views while watching the sun crest over the surrounding woods. Be sure to grab your camera and tripod for some great shots!
Beginning at the entrance to Huntsville State Park, head towards Raven Lake and the Coloneh camping area in the campground. There is a fishing pier right on the shore of the lake that has great vantage points for the sunrise and the lake. Parking is available in front of the pier.
For an added bonus, snag a campsite along the lake for fantastic views of the sun coming up over the lake right from your tent! For more info on camping here, check out Camp at Huntsville State Park.

We set off from Austin to Big Bend, a 7 hour drive with no stops. Some advice had wizened us to the idea of staying in a state park along the way.
Boomerang Float in Santa Elena Canyon
Texas / Santa Elena Canyon Parking Area
With a small group of people, canoes and kayaks, and one vehicle the boomerang trip (paddling against the current, then floating back downstream) up Santa Elena Canyon is the best option for floating.
