State Park Getaway–Canoeing & Kayaking

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

This is a Passport to Texas State Park Getaway

With summer on the way, lots of us are thinking about ways to get out on the water. Bryan Frazier, our State Park guide, says parks offer plenty of opportunities for water-borne fun and learning.

One of the great things about being in Texas is the warm weather that we have, and then the water recreations that goes along with it. It’s just something that people look forward to every year—as being able to get out onto the water.

And in state parks we have some guided tours for canoers and kayakers that gives people an educational and entertaining experience to not just get out and paddle around, but to have a guided tour and show them some of the native wildlife and the fish that are there and the features and the landmarks and things—so you get this up close and personal experience.

These are introductory programs…these are at a lot of parks statewide… from what we have at the Devil’s Waterhole at Inks Lake State Park…to the lake Somerville canoe tours…to what we have at Caddo Lake…and several others across the state.

So, it’s something that families can do, or groups can do…and it’s something that we’re proud to do… and a great experience for folks to get out on the water this summer.

Thanks, Bryan!
