Bringing your family gathering outside this holiday season is easier than ever. That’s because 70 state parks throughout Texas offer group facilities, from dining and recreation halls to group bunkhouses and open-air pavillions. Or, if you were thinking of a smaller get-together, try a cabin or screened shelter. The DFW area has 19 state parks, so why not try something different this year by gathering family and friends for some outdoor holiday fun? To reserve cabins or group facilities, call 512-389-8900.
