Waterwood is a subdivision in the town of Huntsville, Texas in the east-central part of the state. It's nestled in a heavily forested area adjacent to Lake Livingston. Waterwood offers a quiet country setting with a golf course and high quality homes. The town of Huntsville, which is home to Waterwood, had a population of 38,548 as of the 2010 census. Huntsville is about 70 miles north of Houston and is home to Sam Houston State University. Waterwood's major draw is it's proximity to Lake Livingston, which is the second largest lake in Texas. The lake is 2.5 miles long and has a surface area of 83,000 acres. More than 450 miles of shoreline extends into San Jacinto, Polk, Walker, and Trinity Counties. Things to do include swimming, fishing, boating, sailing, jet skiing, camping, picnicking, hiking, biking and simply relaxing at lakeside, enjoying the views. The lake is nicknamed "Water Wonderland," and the surrounding lush Piney Woods Region is truly a nature lover's dream. For those who enjoy camping, parks at Lake Livingston offer over 5,000 campsites and 100 boat launching ramps. You'll also find some excellent restaurants and lodging facilities located around the lake in nearby communities.

Waterwood Weather & Climate

The North Texas Piney Woods Region lies in a humid subtropical climate zone. This region in eastern Texas receives more rainfall than any other region in the state. More than 60 inches annually of rain falls in the far eastern portion. This is due to the Gulf of Mexico currents that carry humid air to the region. While coastal sections see the most cloudy days statewide, northern sections see the most sunny days. This area is prone to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, generally in the springtime. The heat of summer is intensified by high humidity. During winter and spring along the immediate coast, temperatures are kept cool by relatively cool Gulf waters. In late winter and early spring, dense fog, called advection fog, can form when warm air moves over the cool shelf waters. The region is also vulnerable to hurricanes, although plenty of warning is generally given for these types of storms.
