Reviews for Fort Parker State Park

over a year ago

Named after a famous group of settlers, a central Texas park sports two lakes and the ghosts of a long-gone county seat. – The Setting
This park commemorates an early settler fort. In the 1830s, Comanche Indians captured Cynthia Ann Parker, and while in captivity she bore a son who would become a great Comanche chief. Lake Springfield and Fort Parker Lake both provide recreation for visitors.

The Facility
Facilities include restrooms with and without showers; picnic sites; a group picnic pavilion; campsites with water and electricity; four winterized screened shelters; a group camp with barracks and a dining hall, a fishing pier, a boat ramp, fish-cleaning facilities, a trailer dump station and playing fields.
