Lake Palestine

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Take your camera (and your kids) to a State Park




It's either spring break this week, or next week for kids across the state. Here is an idea to get everyone outside and have a great time. Pick up your camera and visit a state park. Texas State Parks offer plenty of opportunities for amazing photographs and outdoor family fun. Whether you capture the look on your child's face after he or she catches their first fish, a magnificent sunset over a 1930's-era cabin, or a surprise encounter with wildlife, you're sure to bring home treasured photographs -- and memories. Check out the state parks near you (//www.tpwd.state.tx.us/state-parks/nearby/all-parks/). Find out "where the wild things are"...like foxes, woodpeckers, prairie dogs, or use a Texas Wildlife Trail Map (www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild/wildlife/wildlife-trails/). Enter your best photos in the Texas State Parks Photo Contest, March 1 - April 15, 2014. Winners in each category will have their photos featured in Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine and each receive a high-performance video camera, the HERO3+ Silver Edition GoPro®, (a $300 value), from Whole Earth Provision Co. The three contest categories are: 1) Photos by kids 17 and younger, 2) Photos by Adults 18+, and 3) Instagram photos. Photo: LBJ State Park Credit: TPWD
