Tejas Park has a group tent camp area that offers a picnic table, lantern stand, and ground fire ring. Water is available at a central location in the park and vault restrooms are nearby. This site is ideal for groups such as Boy Scouts who wish to utilize primitive camping,but still be close to a water source. It is located in an open field directly behind Tejas Camp. Vehicles cannot access the group site directly, campers will carry their equipement from their vehicles/parking lot to the site.
