Comments: We knew that there were not many miles to be had at Longhorn Cavern State Park going in, which turned out to be true. However, the interpretive guide, ample shade and an interesting formation here and there more than kept us interested. We'll be back in the dog days of summer to tour the cave when the constant sub 70 degree temperatures will be a welcome change. This is one of the only free hikes you'll find in a state park!

"This book will be in great demand by travelers, park visitors, and aficionados of Texas landscapes." -- James Wright Steely, Director of National Register Programs, Texas Historical Commission Whether you enjoy looking at scenic landscapes, touring historical sites, camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, swimming, boating, horseback riding, rock climbing, or almost any other outdoor recreation, there's a state park in Texas where you can pursue your pleasure. From the Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley, the Pineywoods to the Big Bend, some 125 state parks offer you a natural escape from fast-lane living. This book is the only official and complete guide to the state parks of Texas. Loaded with accurate, up-to-date information from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it describes the attractions of each park and gives details-- including a locator map-- about camping and lodging facilities, types of recreation offered, and addresses and phone numbers for more information. To assist you in planning trips, the parks are grouped into seven geographic regions-- Big Bend Country, Gulf Coast, Hill Country, Panhandle Plains, Pineywoods, Prairies and Lakes, and the South Texas Plains. With gorgeous color photographs and an inviting text, Laurence Parent depicts the natural features and attractions of each region. So if you want to watch the sunset over Enchanted Rock, fish in the surf on the beach at Galveston, or listen for a ghostly bugle among the ruins of Fort Lancaster, let this book be your complete guide. Don't take a trip in Texas without it.
