Precinct 4’s Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve is an 80-acre property featuring Marshall Lake ─ which spans approximately 40 acres ─ a staff building, paved roads, two fishing piers, parking lots, restroom facilities, 1.7 miles of paved trails, and a canoe launch.

The canoe launch is available to non-motorized boats only during regular park hours. Trails are open to pedestrians and bicyclists, so please be cautious and courteous to all patrons. Leashed pets are welcome, and pet waste clean-up stations are located along the trail. Visitors may not disturb, alter, remove, litter, or damage any plants or natural aspect in the park.

Youth Camping
The campground is available for private reservations to scout groups and other nonprofit youth-type service organizations only. Facilities include a large fire ring, two barbeque grills, and a covered pavilion. Restrooms, showers, water fountains, a water spigot, and electrical outlets are near the camping area. The campground is spacious and adjacent to a sand volleyball court. To make a reservation, contact Precinct 4’s Parks Reservationist at 281-353-4196 or

Fishing is allowed at Marshall Lake with a Texas Parks & Wildlife Department fishing license. For more information about fishing at Precinct 4 parks and to view the rules and regulations, please click here.

The preserve was donated to Precinct 4 in January 2009 after Kickerillo Companies and Mischer Investments acquired it from Hewlett-Packard to create The Vintage, a community in northwest Harris County. Ultimately, the property will connect with the 100 Acre Wood Preserve on the opposite side of Highway 249 and become part of the Cypress Creek Greenway trail system, which connects hundreds of acres of parks along Cypress Creek.
