From Kevin

On this weeks episode you guys asked what we thought of state vs private parks. I’m in the Dfw area in Texas and we have a state park about 45min to an hour from me that while it's a good park with trails and some rock climbing, it's not very well kept to entice people to wanna come back and bring more people. Cost is about $25 per vehicle per day.

The private park we visit is about a 3 hour drive from and is great. The do a membership program that goes back into the park. Adding lodging, bathrooms, showers, and most recently full RV hookups. Again mix of trails and rock crawling. Entrance prices vary on day to day and camping, but are on par with the state park. They also do clean up weekends where you wheel for free but help clear trails and pick up trash around the park.
