You can launch basically free all over the state of Texas. Just pay $70 for an annual state park pass. I know, it doesn't sound free, but it sure is handy. I have used mine so much they are paying me to launch now!!

Ummm....NO.
State Park Pass is only good for State Parks not for all bodies of water in the state. There's 89 state parks and not all have a lake.
