What is a friends group?
Friends Groups are independent non-profit partner organizations created by people just like you.
The mission of the Friends of McKinney Falls State Park is to serve as responsible stewards of the cultural and natural resources, support educational programs, and foster an inclusive environment for present and future generations. We will do this by giving our time, our talent, and our financial support to McKinney Falls State Park.
We envision an urban green space that supports an interactive experience and inspires people to develop a lifelong appreciation and respect for nature and the legacy of Texas history.
McKinney Falls is 13 miles away from the state capital. With nearly nine miles of trails, 81 campsites, and six cabins, there's never a dull moment! View our gallery or check out the latest park programs.
Now let's WORK
We work shoulder to shoulder with Park Staff to decide what projects have the highest priorities as well as how best to achieve those goals. Sign up to become a friends group member today.
