State Park Getaway: Falcon State Park

This is Passport to Texas

This week’s state park getaway takes us to Falcon Lake State Park, where fishing for bass tops a long list of recreational opportunities. Bryan Frazier is our guide.

Falcon state park—this time of year—is really one of the premier bass fishing destinations in the United States. It’s one of the first ones to be an indicator of the bass fishing season, if you will, as a lot of bass fishermen can note.

And, where it is, right there on the international border…it is a great destination, not just for the fishing…there’s also great birding….you get the subtropical species coming up from Mexico, and then a lot of the winter residents there…the wildlife you’re going to see is great at Falcon State Park.

You’ve got this native habitat of the south Texas brush country, which is really what the habitat of the lake is…one of the reasons it’s such good fishing. But, it’s just this beautiful south Texas scrub brush.

There’s a butterfly garden there that the volunteers helped build. You’ve got great camping, you’ve got some enclosed shelters there that are air conditioned. So, Falcon State Park, this time of year especially—but really all year—a great place by yourself, friends, family, check out Falcon State Park.
