Paddling in State Parks

Paddling in State Parks

This is Passport to Texas

Canoeing, kayaking and pedal boating in state parks has never been easier. Our state park guide, Bryan Frazier, has details.

60—Lots of the state parks we have rent them, and you can certainly bring your own. And we’re talking about in lakes, along the Texas coastline, rivers, streams, ponds that we have in our state park systems. They’re great ways to see the wildlife, they’re great family activities. They’re good ways for exercise when you’re out there paddling. And it’s just another way to see and enjoy the water that maybe you otherwise wouldn’t. And state parks are just great places for access, whether you’re bringing your own and unloading it there, or you’re renting it from one of our friendly and professional park staff. We encourage people to check out the paddling trails that are available; it’s just a great trip. You even can do a picnic – paddle out to some island out on the lake; it’s just a really unique way to see the water and enjoy the water –provides also a different slant on access for fishing. Whatever you’re on the water for, canoeing and kayaking and pedal boats are a different way to see it and enjoy it.

Thanks Bryan

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet, supporting outdoor recreation in Texas; because there’s life to be done.
