Unwrap the Wild ® with a Texas State Parks Pass

DALLAS-For the second year, Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF) is offering a special gift idea for the holiday season: A Texas State Parks Pass. A Texas State Parks Pass provides 365 days of free access to more than 90 state parks and 100 percent of the proceeds directly support state parks.

Starting in early November, you can order the pass online at for $65, saving $5 off the regular price. Visit between Nov. 3 and Dec. 19 to take advantage of this special gift offer. Recipients will be mailed a certificate that they can redeem at any Texas State Park. They’ll have a whole year from the date they redeem their certificate to use their state parks pass to receive waived entry for themselves and all the guests in their vehicle.

Alongside this special state parks pass offer, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is offering state parks gift cards and limited edition holiday ornaments which will be available starting in November. Your family can also enjoy more than 60 holiday-themed events this season at state parks across Texas.

Share your love for Texas this holiday season!
