The State Park at Caddo Lake?

The State Park at Caddo Lake?

Caddo Lake exemplifies classic East Texas landscape, complete with Spanish moss-dripping bald cypress trees and a maze of bayous, ponds, phrazle and swamps. Anglers from all over the globe flock to the park because it is home to more than 70 different fish species. There is also a boat ramp and fishing pier for your convenience. There are over 50 miles of paddling paths in the vicinity, which you may explore by renting a canoe or kayak, or bringing your own. There is a wide variety of fauna in this area, including alligators.

Seminole Canyon has been frequented by humans for at least 12,000 years, but the most significant cultural legacy was left by a population that settled there some 7,000 years ago. Pictographs were painted by these foragers at almost two hundred different places in the Lower Pecos River Country's rock shelters. Pictograph hunting is only one of many activities available to tourists in this area.

Visit Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas, and go back in time. Dinosaurs inhabited this region about 113 million years ago, when a sea was constantly receding and advancing. The riverbed has retained fossilized tracks and claw marks, perhaps from sauropods and theropods. The tracks are covered by mud and water for the better part of the year, but may be seen during dry spells or at the end of summer when the water level is low. There are twenty miles of paths for hikers and bikers, and the Paluxy River is a kayaker's dream.

Longhorn Cavern State Park, home to the cave of the same name, is a must-see attraction less than 90 minutes outside of Austin. Legend has it that criminal Sam Bass stashed $2 million in the cave, and Anglo immigrants collected bat guano there to produce gunpowder during the Civil War. Tours of caves may be arranged.
