Texas Parks & Wildlife
How can you escape the dog days of summer? Why not join thousands of Texans who take their families swimming in a Texas State Park to beat the heat — while enjoying a fun, healthy activity in the outdoors?
Keep cool this summer and have fun with your family! Go paddling in a state park or along a designated Texas Paddling Trail.
Fishing in a Texas State Park or local Neighborhood Fishin’ lake stocked with fish is fun, affordable and a great way for family and friends to be together in nature.
Whether you relax on a blanket, sit at a picnic table or cook outdoors on an open grill — food just tastes better outside!
April is a great time to get outdoors with your family, and birding is an activity that the whole family can enjoy — even while hiking, biking or picnicking.
Visiting a state park offers plenty of opportunities for amazing photographs and outdoor family fun.
This month, take your family biking in a Texas State Park! Ride together along shaded creeks, limestone bluffs and stream beds while pedaling through prairies, deserts, fields or forests.
This month, take your family hiking! You can try a night hike, a nature hike, an easy hike along a tree-shaded river, or a hike back in time.
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.
Camping is a great way to connect with nature and your loved ones. Whether it’s stargazing, s’mores and stories around the campfire or encounters with night owls, crickets and other wildlife, you’ll be sure to bond over your experiences.
Make history this month at Texas State Parks. From rock art sites to historic structures, missions, military frontier forts or pioneer farms, history is better outside!
Go on a treasure hunt the whole family can enjoy — geocaching! Geocaching takes your child’s love for technology into the great outdoors.
