Bonham State Park, Purtis Creek State Park and Lake Tawakoni State Park are ALL very family friendly!
Just a short drive out East!
Life's better outside...

Lake Mineral Wells State Park is great also.
We are blessed in Texas with great state parks!

The best state parks near dfw we have found are glen rose, mineral wells and cleburne. They all just have a very limited number of campsites. Joe Pool used to be a good state park as well but the flood a couple of years ago took its toll. A good portion of it is still closed and they are clearing a lot of the ceaders now to restore the grasslands.

The parks at Pine Creek Lake north of Garvin, OK are really nice. Also, McGee Creek Lake between Antlers and Atoka, OK is a nice one. Both of these are very scenic with large campsites on the water, and they don't run radar in them like in Texas. You have to get out of Texas to find the best state and Corp of Engineer parks. The best are in Arkansas but probably too far for you.

The TP&W parks app is nice but I wish you could book a camp site on it. I do like that you can filter the parks down to what you're looking for in a camp site (water and electricity) and what your looking to do (fishing, hiking, equestrian trails, etc). They even have park maps on there.

Tyler State park and get one of the premium water front sites. Offers good fishing and trail to walk around the lake.

Rusk state park, pedernales falls state park, Tyler, both Ray Roberts and Eisenhower state parks have been the most family friendly I have been to. We just got back from a west Texas trip where we hit Caprock canyon, palo duro canyon and coppers breaks state parks. All 3 are very scenic but not much to do but hike. Caprock was great for wildlife.

Mineral Wells Park has been mentioned and I was there this year and was looking to make plans to go back. Noticed there is a park nearby where you can hunt for fossells also if you are in to that kind of thing. Me and then wife and kids and grandkids are planning on heading that way pretty soon now that we have cooler weather.
