New Dock

This new boating, fishing, swimming dock is located near the south picnic shelter in Lost Island Huston Park. We hope visitors enjoy this new addition!

Campground Construction

Lost Island Huston Park Campground will be closed due to construction as of August 3, 2015. Check back as dates are tentative.

New Viewing Binoculars

Lost Island-Huston Park has a new addition – viewing binoculars. They overlook the marsh near the boat ramp. Be sure to take a closer look at the scenery next time you visit!

Newly Constructed Lakeside Stairways

Next time you are boating, be sure to check out the newly constructed stone stairways by the shoreline south of the Nature Center.
