This is Passport to Texas

If you love the Texas outdoors, you may wish to keep a copy of the Texas State Park Guide in your glove box.

13- I recommend picking one up and keeping it in your car or RV. There’s an index in the back. You can basically search by each activity of facility that you’re interested in, and easily find which parks meet your needs.

Thomas Wilhelm, with state parks, says they’re available at parks, TXDOT Travel centers, and many Chambers of Commerce.

18- There’s information on some of the local wildlife. There’s a section with maps for each major city, so it shows which parks are nearby. There’s a suggested packing list. There’s a whole section on softer accommodations [not tent camping], so which parks have cabins, screen shelters, yurts. That sort of thing.

Before school starts, head to a Texas State Park. And with a State Park Guide in hand, you’re ready for anything.

23- You know, a lot of times what people imagine a state park may offer is just the tip of the iceberg. You may not realize all of the other facilities and accommodations that even the park you go to all of the time may have. So, this makes it really easy to see exactly what a park offers. Plus, it’s pretty to look at. There are pictures of each park. And you really get a good feel of what makes each park unique. Just get out there and visit. We’d love to have you.
