Our Organization & The Park

McKinney Falls State Park, located at 5808 McKinney Falls Parkway in South East Austin, was acquired and opened to the public in 1976 thanks to a private donation. Named after Thomas F. McKinney, who settled in Texas in the early 1820's and was one of Stephen F. Austin's first 300 colonists. The park is the ideal setting to camp, hike, mountain bike, swim in Onion Creek, and enjoy being outside.

Wildlife to be observed and photographed includes white-tailed deer, raccoons, armadillos, squirrels, and numerous birds and reptiles. Park facilities include screened shelters with bunk beds; campsites with water and electricity; picnic sites; paved and unpaved hiking/biking trails; an interpretive hiking trail, an interpretive center with an exhibit room and audiovisual room, and much more.

The Friends of McKinney Falls State Park are committed to preserving and furthering the natural and cultural beauty of McKinney Falls State Park while encouraging the positive experiences within the park for future generations.
