Pinto Mountains State Park has been a long-anticipated project for both TPWF
and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). In a major victory for state
park advocates, the Texas Legislature recently appropriated $12.5 million to
develop the newest jewel in the state park system. TPWF has committed to raise up
to an additional $10 million in support of this incredible state park. Palo
Pinto Mountains State Park is located on 4,421 acres of scenic, undeveloped
land approximately 75 miles west of Fort Worth and 75 miles east of Abilene.
The new state park will provide a wonderful setting for hiking, mountain
biking, camping, horseback riding, fishing, and stargazing. It will serve as a
premier outdoor destination for the DFW Metroplex and is expected to evenutally attract
75,000 visitors annually. TPWF is committed to the success of this landmark
conservation and recreation project.

help ensure that Palo Pinto Mountains State Park becomes a first-class outdoor
recreation destination for all Texans to enjoy.
