I just got back from a trip to Lone Star, Texas, and it was so beautiful.
I was looking forward to my first visit to this state park in almost a decade.
But my trip also left me with a couple of questions.
How much was it worth?
How long will I have to stay?
And why are the gates so close to my house?
When I asked those questions on Friday, I wasn’t the only one to have an answer.
I asked them at a conference called “Texas State Parks: An Insider’s Guide to the Land of the Rising Sun.”
I’m not a fan of crowds, and I can’t imagine anyone getting too excited about an outdoor adventure, but for some people it can be an important part of a trip.
I had been traveling around the state and was having fun.
But the Lone Stars had been so nice to me that I wasn, too.
“You don’t know the value of a night in the park until you spend a few nights,” said Jeff Anderson, a retired police officer who runs a travel and tourism blog.
The park, known for its wildflowers and waterfalls, is the third-largest in Texas.
It’s located on a highway near San Antonio and includes a state-owned golf course, a canoe and kayak launch, a rafting site, a camping site, and a water park with a splash pad and a slide.
The park’s website says it offers a “secluded, remote experience.”
There’s even a video tour.
As a visitor, the park is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week, and visitors can rent camping sites for $5.
Visitors can also rent out their cars and camp out in the backcountry, but that’s not an option for everyone.
If you decide to go to Lone Stars, be sure to read our guide to Texas state parks.
What to do in Texas state park: What to pack for a trip around the Lone LightsState parks are all different.
Here’s what to bring, how to use it, and what to avoid, depending on what you’re planning to do.
For a state park you can take a kayak, canoe, kayak-raft or kayak and paddle across the river to the beach, park or lake.
Here are some tips to make the most of your trip:Don’t take a car unless you have the money to afford it.
The Texas Department of Transportation says that a $25 car rental is the most expensive way to visit a state Park.
The average cost is $50 per day, so if you want to save money and get to the park as quickly as possible, go with a car.
But if you plan to stay overnight, don’t leave your car unattended, said Dan Peebles, a spokesman for the Texas Department for Transportation.
Bring enough food to feed yourself and your gear.
To get a good night’s sleep, you’ll need to have plenty of food and water, said Scott Miller, a former marine who runs the travel website Kayak Safari.
If you’re going to camp out, pack a few tent stakes and a sleeping pad.
There’s also a campsite at the park’s canoe launch.
Make sure your camping gear has enough water.
If it’s dry, it’ll take a while for it to freeze.
There are also plenty of restaurants and lodging options near the park.
For example, the Grand River Campground, a motel, offers a restaurant for $40 per night.
For more information, go to Kayak.com/GrandRiverCampground or call 713-838-0880.
The park’s visitor center is a good place to start.
Visit the Texas State Parks website and the LoneStarStatePark.com website, and you can find a map of park amenities, along with a number of other helpful resources.
