Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

If you’re looking for a state park to visit this fall, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Television show is here to help. Series producer, Don Cash.

So, November, we’re hitting a state park every week like we always do. One of the state parks is Lockhart State Park just south of Austin. They’ve even got a nine-hole golf course there that’s great.

We’re going to go to Purtis Creek State Park near Athens, Texas. And, it’s famous for fishing, but they’ve also got a very nice paddling tour.

We’re going to go to Choke Canyon State Park. It’s about halfway between San Antonio and Corpus Christi.

(bird call) You can view the birds. You catch the fish (there we go), and you can relax and just enjoy nature at its best.

The last state park we go to in November is Copper Breaks State Park, and it’s pretty close to the Red River up in North Texas, just up near Quanah, Texas. They’ve got part of the Texas longhorn herd there.

We do a program on Friday and Saturday called Meet the Longhorns. There’s two of them that will eat out of your hand, and one will even offer to give you a big kiss. Now, this isn’t just any cow slobber you’re going to get on you. This is authentic Texas state longhorn slobber. That felt weird.

Fall is a great time to get out to a state park in Texas. And, I hope everybody gets out there and enjoys it like I do.

So do I, Don. We have a list of stations that air the series at
