TPW TV Small Lakes Big Fun

This is Passport to Texas

Summertime is the perfect time to head to a state park. And this month the Texas Parks and Wildlife PBS TV series brings them to you. Series Producer Don Cash.

A couple of the state parks that we’re going to feature in July on the PBS television program are Bonham State Park and Lake Arrowhead State Park. Both of these are pretty small parks; they’re within easy access to the Dallas Fort Worth area. Bonham has a very small lake…

One of the things people like is the size of the lake being 65 acres. They can get out in their canoes, kayaks in a kind of relaxing atmosphere that you just can’t get at larger parks.

Lake Arrowhead has a lake that’s 16-hundred acres.

The strong pull here is fishing. It’s one of the premier crappie lakes in Texas.

They’re both great places for fishing, paddling, and hiking. And we do have quite a number of state parks within easy access to metropolitan areas.

So, it’s a quick getaway where people can get away from the rat race of the big city and come out here and recharge their batteries.

If you don’t catch the PBS show in July, you can always go to our YouTube site, and we have videos of just about every state park; so, YouTube is a great place to go look at these, too.

Visit, where you can view a variety of videos about the great Texas outdoors.

That’s our show for today… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti
