TPWD State park Website

This is Passport to Texas

Begin your state park adventure before you set foot out the door. Our State park Guide, Bryan Frazier, tells you how.

60—The state parks website and electronic media can really serve a purpose and help folks out – not just in providing information on the website. You can make your reservation in advance online. You can sign up for e-newsletters that will give you information about that. You can visit individual state park pages online that have all sorts of information from programs to activities to events. And those things are updated frequently; and we’ve put some new content on there recently with better maps, interactive features… And there’s also the social media component. On Facebook you can see the photos, get updates on events. Our Twitter account: you can specialize whatever you want to receive; everything from bass fishing to state parks. Our Instagram account where you can view photos of state parks and also post your own. You can go to YouTube and see the videos that are helpful and informative. It really is something that can save you time in the long run, and you can start your journey even before you take your journey.

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.
