Sponsoring Program: LBJ State Park & Historic Site (includes Sauer Beckmann Living History Farm)
Live and work in the beautiful Texas Hill Country! LBJ State Park and Historic Site is located in Stonewall, Texas, about halfway between Johnson City and Fredericksburg on HWY290. We are a day-use only park with no overnight camping. The park is home to the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm, a swimming pool, part of the Texas Longhorn herd, a bison herd, historic cabins from the 1800s, and 2.5 miles of nature trails. We are located across the Pedernales River from the LBJ Ranch.
Park Hosts can assist in various areas of our operation.
