Find more programs and important information on the Texas Parks & Wildlife event calendar. Always remember to reserve your day pass in advance! Many parks reach capacity on weekends and without a reservation you will not be able to enter the park. 

Visit parks often? Invest in a Texas State Parks Pass! Not only will it waive your entrance fees, but you’ll get camping coupons and discounts on Park Store items! At only $70, they pay for themselves in just a few visits.
