Texas Outdoor Family Camping

website header Campout

Camping at a state park can be intimidating to someone who’s never camped before. The Texas Outdoor Family Program is a partnership with Texas State Parks that helps remove those barriers. This program is a one-night camping event to introduce families to camping, nature, and your Texas State Parks. The activities this program offers will enable you and your family to comfortably and safely enjoy your Texas State Parks and provide skills for a lifetime of rewarding outdoor experiences. We will provide you with a tent, cots and sleeping pads, a stove, pans, fuel, a lantern, and more! Families (up to 6 people) will need to provide their own food, personal items, and bedding. We have two campout sessions to choose from this spring! Families can only register for one campout per season.
