I`ve always wanted to go there its just so far away . its almost 1100 miles round trip . I don`t want to put that many miles on my car . but I would love go there one day. Just too far way especially since I work during the week.

Big Bend has dark skies except when the moon is out. One place in the United States where vampire bats have been sighted, last I heard. Great diversity in birds, plants, mammals. Almost died there from dehydration in early June so many years ago.

I also used to live in Bee Cave, and it was pretty dark at night, especially in the canyons. It's closer, only 350mi round trip, but I will bet you somewheres in between is very dark for long stretches of highway. Conversely, you could befriend someone with a boat and head out into Galveston Bay. Nothing eats light like the open water at night. You may also find some nearby appropriately dark locations on this list.

I've only set foot in Houston a handful of times and never been to either area, but Addicks and Barker reservoirs look like they could offer relief from immediate streetlight glow and some long sightlines in places like this.

I see a small forest, 1.5 km wide, it looks like there are quite straight paths and I do not see any lighting in the photo from the area

I think it's fun there at night, although I can't say if you can walk there at night. Some of the photos show that the edge of the forest is fenced with wire

That is a nice forest for walking/hiking/horses.

FWIW, this page
says "Open year-round during daylight hours only."
