Fishing with Dad on Father's Day

Fishing with Dad on Father’s Day

This is Passport to Texas

Few people on our gift giving lists are harder to buy for than our fathers. Most men don’t want friends and family to make a big fuss over them on special days – but we’re going to do it anyway, Dad. So get used to it.

On Father’s Day – June 19 — show Dad what he means to you by giving him the gift of the great Texas outdoors.

How do you do that? You could buy him a Texas State Parks Pass (which is really like a gift for the whole family); it allows Dad unlimited access to all state parks for a year, discounts on camping, as well as discounts at state parks stores.

You could take Dad on a picnic at a state park or natural area. We have suggestions for creating a memorable picnicking experience – including recipes to try out — at

If your dad likes to get out on his own for some quiet time with nature – because let’s face it, you can be a handful – and doesn’t already have a limited use permit from Parks and Wildlife, getting him one gives him access to a million acres of public land in Texas, where he can hike, mountain bike, watch wildlife, fish, and in some cases do a little primitive camping.

Texas is a big state that offers a wide range of recreational opportunities. Doesn’t your dad deserve Texas?
