Picnicking in State Parks

Texas State Parks offer picnic tables for your outdoor dining pleasure in some of the most beautiful places in the state. Where will you picnic—near a river, lake, cave, canyon or beach?

Whether you relax on a blanket, sit at a picnic table or cook outdoors on an open grill — food just tastes better outside! Find a park near you and start planning your picnic! You can even put on a Texas-sized picnic in a group pavilion. To reserve a picnic pavilion or area, call (512) 389-8900. And please remember to keep your parks beautiful by following the Leave No Trace principles.
