Stephen F. Austin State Park is located in San Felipe, Austin County, west of Houston on the Brazos River. 12 acres (4.9 ha) of the park are set aside as the San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site to honor the area's past.

The town was burned on March 2, 1836, to prevent it from falling into the hands of the advancing Mexican Army during the Texas Revolution. The park is a productive birdwatching location. Habitat is typical East Texas riparian, upland areas are mostly pecan trees, while river bottom areas are dominated by cottonwoods and hackberry. The park offers camping, a picnic area, hiking trails and a public golf course.
