Named for a historic Texas town, Lake Texana is located in the coastal region along U.S. Route 59 about midway between Houston and Corpus Christi. Lake Texana State Park, first opened in May 1981, offers lake access and plenty of outdoor recreation. With the majority of focus on water related activity, the 575 acres of parkland's mix of pine, pecan and oaks, comes in at a distant second. This cooling tree canopy offers hikers and picnickers a bit of relief from the hot Texas sun. The park's deer, raccoons, a few bobcat and turkeys also rely of this forest habitat.
