Mission Tejas State Park
By Dana Goolsby
Houston County- East Texas is full of amazing history and natural beauty. Mission Tejas State Park fully encompasses both the rich history of East Texas and the natural wonder and beauty of the Pineywoods and affords visitors the chance to experience both to the fullest extent. Mission Tejas State Park is a 363.5-acre park nestled in Houston County, 21 miles northeast of Crockett. The park was constructed in 1935 and acquired in 1957 by Legislative Act from the Texas Forest Service, at which time it was open to the public.

Each year people come from near and far to Gilmer, Texas to celebrate the yam! The 78th Annual East Texas Yamboree Festival will kick off October 16-17.
