Texas State Parks

State parks need you to visit, now more than ever.

Visiting Texas State Parks with your family and friends is one of the most important ways you can help keep them open. Entrance and usage fees, overnight fees and state parks pass sales all go directly to fund park operations.

Texas State Parks are unique and beautiful places. From rugged mountains in far West Texas, to the legendary canyons of the Panhandle and countless miles of shoreline along our lakes, rivers, and beaches – they offer a wide variety of outdoor recreation while also conserving these natural and cultural resources for future generations. They're also affordable and family-friendly. In fact, children 12 and under get in free. So why not plan your next visit today?
