Just like last year, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is honoring veterans and active military by waiving admission to all of Texas’ state parks this Sunday.

Although camping and other activity fees still apply, if you’ve been looking for a chance to hike and one less excuse not to get out there and actually do it, Sunday is your day! 

There are dozens of state parks across Texas, and many within driving distance of Austin. Check out a full map of Texas state parks here, and peek a few of the sites they offer below:


Had to bandit camp in Old Mexico to get this view. Worth it.

Survived tarantulas and rock climbing so I guess it was a #sundayfunday

Mountains, coastland, hills, canyon, forest. There really isn’t a state park Texas misses. See you Sunday!
