Help Rebuild Stephen F Austin State Park

Great News! SFA State Park reopened to the public in March 2017. Some repairs continue. Please watch the video on our Stephen F Austin State Park blog post for more information.

In April 2016, Stephen F Austin State Park (also known by some as "SFA State Park") was temporarily closed due to flooding. Just as the park was scheduled to reopen, it was hit by another, much more devastating flood. The 2016 Memorial Weekend Flood submerged the entire park under 5-7 feet of water. In this video, we share with you some of the images taken of the park as the water levels began to recede, as well as some of the damage left behind, and what you can do to help rebuild the Park!
