20 Amazing State Parks In Texas That Will Blow You Away

With more than 90 state parks to explore, we have plenty of nature spots to get lost in when we just want to get away from it all. Some of the most traveled state parks are right here in Texas, and I don’t blame people for coming long distances to witness the beauty of the Lone Star State for themselves. From the mighty red rocks near Amarillo to the pineywoods of East Texas, here are what we consider to be some of the most amazing state parks in Texas.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
