When To See Fall Colors In Texas

August 31, 2019

What is there to do in Texas in the fall?

Autumn is a great time to go camping in Texas, especially in spots like the Big Bend National Park. Visit a fall festival, perhaps head to Barton Hill Farms for the day or experience the stunning Texas fall foliage at Lost Maples State Natural Area. Autumn is Renaissance Festival season, and there should be no missing fun football games in the crisp fall air.

Where can I see the best fall foliage in Texas?

There’s great fall foliage viewing all over Texas, but we would recommend visiting both state and national parks for the most intense viewing. Lost Maples State Natural Area, Daingerfield State Park and Garner State Park tend to be some of the most popular. 

Why should I visit Texas in the fall?

The weather in Texas is arguably the best during the autumn season, and it’s also when and where folks who are looking for beautiful hiking opportunities and temperate camping should indulge. Texas is a cost-effective place to vacation, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find kinder people. It’s a true gem, made even more beautiful by way of a natural explosion of fall colors.
