Texans for State Parks members include a diverse set of interests (campers, hikers, birders, bicyclists, rock climbers, equestrians, RV owners, swimmers, and canoeists to name a few) with a common concern for the well being of the state park system. TfSP’s goals include providing a united, statewide voice for users of state parks and related groups regarding state park system issues, and working in partnership with those groups and individuals interested in the future of the Texas State Park System. Texans for State Parks works to keep members informed about issues affecting the state park system in order to give them an opportunity to get involved and make a difference. TfSP, with E-news, a web page, and an annual members’ conference, forwards information about actions being considered by the legislature, Parks and Wildlife Commission and others in order that people have an opportunity to comment and affect the outcome of the proposed actions.

  • Provide a united, state-wide voice for users of state parks and related groups on park matters of shared concerns.
  • Serve as an information resource for interested persons on state park matters.
  • Educate park users, legislators and the general public about state park matters.
