Anyone have an update on Fairfield? The lease expires in October as the property was put up for sale. Just wondering if anyone has any news or if it'll be closed beginning in October.

According to the TP&W web site, they will be having doe and spike draw hunts at Fairfield in January 2021, so I would say that the park is going to remain open.

I just can't believe TP&W would just give up land at Fairfield.. It is nice camp grounds and great land.. Just does not make sense..

The question is, will the new owners of the property renew the lease at a price TP&W can pay.

Not gonna happen. Especially in this environment. This State, like every other in the nation, is about to face a budget disaster of epic proportions. One like most of us have never seen.

Give it up? Its not theirs to give, they are leasing it from Vistra energy. I think most state parks are leases, people just don't realize this.

And TPWD has been suffering huge budget shortfalls for a long time before I even knew what Covid meant.
