Join us for a settler/pioneer themed day at the park. We will feature four different programs starting at 9:00am that cover how people lived and worked in the pioneer era.

Join us for our first Pioneer and Settler day here at Lake Livingston State Park. Programs will focus on the lives of the pioneers who explored and settled here in Texas. 

Programs include:

Fire is Living History

9:00am at the park Archery Range

Learn about primitive fire starting methods such as the bow-drill and flint and steel. Rangers will cover fire safety, fire as a survival tool, and demonstrate various primitive methods.

Corn-Husk Buddies

10:30am at the park Archery Range

Learn how to make a corn-husk buddy in this special pioneer themed craft-ivity for kids and adults.

Products of the Pine Tree

1:30pm at the park Archery Range

Watch as Rangers make and discuss the products produced from the pine tree such as pitch, tar, turpentine, and rosin using mostly historical methods in this educational program.

Campfire Cooking

3:00pm at the park Archery Range

Watch as rangers use a Dutch oven to make some of our favorite meals from Texas History. These meals are the same settlers and civil war soldiers ate during the 18th/19th century. We will demonstrate how to cook them and share samples. Bring a chair, utensils, and plate.
