State Parks: Thanksgiving in Parks

Bastrop State Park

This is Passport to Texas

Some of my fondest thanksgiving memories were those I spent with family and friends in state parks. Make some holiday memories of your own this year. Our state Park Guide, Bryan Frasier tells us how.

54— Thanksgiving is traditionally one of the most popular and busiest times in our state park system. We encourage people to plan their family outings in a state park; we have so many group facilities you can rent and have your get together and your Thanksgiving meal in a state park. But also, we have a tendency to really enjoy that Thanksgiving turkey, so get out the next day and hike. See the beauty, the changing colors here in Texas, and walk around and use some energy and burn off that Thanksgiving meal. So, get outside and enjoy some time outdoors this Thanksgiving holiday. And if you’re going to, I also encourage people that if they’re going to be camping to make some advance reservations. It is a popular time. It is great weather. People historically have time off for the holidays — so make those camping and overnight reservations as early as you can to come out and enjoy state parks at Thanksgiving.

Thanks, Bryan.
