A History with Texas Parks
Submitted by Lauren Staley
My husband and I first camped in a state park in 1978, Lake Whitney State Park. Since then we have camped in or visited 43 Texas State Parks. Texas is such a large and wonderful state with many great parks, from the forests of the East to the deserts of the West. Every park has something unique to offer. After retiring we began park hosting and since 2003 have volunteered at our first and favorite park, Lake Whitney. The volunteer work is fun and it is nice to give something back to a place that has given us so many years of enjoyment.
