Resaca De La Palma State Park

Map This Site!

Part of the network of World Birding Centers, Texas' newest state park is not a state park in the traditional sense. Resaca de la Palma caters to bird watchers, butterfly enthusiasts and other nature lovers who seek an up-close view of wildlife in a natural setting. The park includes a restored resaca (an ancient coil of a river bed once filled by Rio Grande floodwaters), marshes, dense thorn-scrub, and mature palm and ebony forests. There are four observation decks, a picnic area, visitor center, interpretation hall and numerous trails, some of which are handicapped accessible. There are more than 8 miles of dirt hiking trails, including a half-mile trail that is compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act, and a paved 3. 5-mile loop traveled by a tram that makes two stops.

Admission Adults $4.00, Seniors $2, Children (under 12) - Free
