Mother Neff State Park

1 of 6
A Legacy for Texans
Along a scenic stretch of the Leon River southwest of Waco lies Mother Neff State Park, one of Texas’ earliest state parks. Isabella Neff donated the original six acres for the park in 1921. Since then, many folks have discovered what Mother Neff knew:  this is a very special place.
Things to Do
Come to the river to relax! You can hike, picnic, camp, fish, geocache and observe nature. Rent one of our three picnic pavilions for your next reunion. Learn more about the park and its history at our Visitors Center (opening Jan. 23, 2015).
Camping: Our new camping loop has 20 sites with water, sewer and 50/30-amp hookups. Or choose one of 15 tent sites (with water nearby) near the Leon River.
