Best Texas State Parks for Families

Best Texas State Parks for Families

Your little ones can walk in the footsteps of their favorite giant dinosaurs in Texas' state parks. Dinosaur footprints, horseback rides and canoeing down the glittering Frio River are just a few of the state's favorite family attractions:

  • 1. Garner State Park

    Since the forties, families have been jiving to the sound of jukeboxes at Garner State Park. Cool off from the dancing and the Texan sunshine with a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Frio River. Almost 2,000 acres of Hill Country landscapes are threaded by this glimmering river, which you can float blissfully along on a tube, paddle down in a canoe, or fish in. Trails ribbon the park, and picnic areas are plentiful.

  • 2. Fort Richardson State Park and Historic Site

    Kids are enthralled by the historic attractions at Fort Richardson. Visit a powder magazine which was used to store gun powder, an antique bakery, and an officer's quarters. After your visit, go horseback riding or fish for catfish, bass, and trout. The Lost Creek Trailway runs for ten 10 mi. of leafy splendor, forming a haven for cyclists, horse riders, and hikers alike. Military re-enactments and barbecue cook-offs are common in the park during the summer months.

  • 3. Dinosaur Valley State Park

    Walk in the gargantuan footsteps of dinosaurs at one of Texas' most exciting state parks for children. Sure, you can horse ride, swim in the river, and enjoy watching the wildlife on more than a hundred acres in this parkland. But the greatest attraction is the dinosaur prints in the bed of the Paluxy River.

A total of 13 mi. of trails ribbon through the park.
