Following a drought that has hung over much of Texas since 2010, the entire state has seen significant rainfall during May 2015. In fact, many counties are seeing record rainfall for May. The upside is that all of the water is recharging our aquifers and filling our lakes. The downside is the destruction that is accompanying the flooding. Our hearts go out to everyone who has lost loved ones, pets and property to the storms.

Among the affected areas are many of our state parks, corps of engineer parks, and a few rv parks. Some of these have been significantly impacted, others face only very minor challenges. We have been monitoring their statuses via social media, and have decided to make one list here. Hopefully, this will make it easy for everyone to keep track.

To our knowledge, these are the parks that have been impacted in some way. Please visit the parks' websites directly for current updates and details. Texas Parks and Wildlife has also set up a page on their website showing the current status of all of the state parks. If you would like to assist in the recovery of the damaged parks, please contact the park or their Friends' group.
