Free Camping in Sam Houston National Forest

One of the more popular hunters camps in Sam Houston National Forest, this campground comes with a porta-potty and a trash can, although ironically, it has more trash on the ground than those that do not come with trash cans. It's also one of the smaller hunters camps in the forest.

Shell Oil Road Hunters Camp

Nestled deep within the forest, this small campground delivers a more deep dive into the wildlife habitat for hunting enthusiasts. You still have your pick of full shade sites and full size sites, but you’ll find yourself competing more for a site. As long as you arrive during the week, and not on the weekend, you should have no problem. Although during hunting season, you’ll probably not ever find an open site.

In our experience, there was a lot of trash laying around, but it’s not much of a problem to fill up a trash bag of garbage, especially if you plan to stay a week or more. But if you’re here outside of hunting season, it’s actually a quiet and peaceful place to camp.
