Palo Pinto Mountains State Park
1915 FM 2372
Strawn , TX

We have a unique opportunity to hike and camp at an undeveloped new state park near Strawn Texas. This is truly primitive camping as there are no facilities, no water and no bathrooms. We will be the only people camping as the park is not open to the public yet. We will meet near the park entrance on Saturday morning. We will set up camp and go for a 3 or 4 mile hike. You will need to bring your own camping gear, water, food and cooking supplies. Please contact the trip leader Carla Egyed if you are interested in joining us at cegyed@sbcglobal.net. An RSVP on Facebook does not mean you are signed up for the trip, you must contact the leader first in order to be signed up.
