BLM land in Texas?

Is there a map that gives general information to these areas in Texas? 14 day stays and so forth?

We have some National Grasslands in Texas, but I've lived here all my life and have never heard of BLM land in Texas.
You might do a Google search on National Grasslands and see if that will accommodate you.

You might try the Allstays app. Use the filter for Texas, and Forest filter. It came up with 24. Not sure if that's what your looking for, but may be similar.

The Golden Age pass is $10 for life for folks 65 and over. It gives 1/2 rate at NP, NF, BLM, Bureau of Reclaimation etc. We have used it extensively

To my knowledge there is no BLM administered land in Texas. There are Corps of Engineers campsites and, as mentioned above, National Grasslands. Most of the land in Texas is private or state owned.

This article gives a great explanation as to why there are no federal lands in Texas (other than what the feds have purchased for military bases or what Texas has given to the feds, such as Big Bend NP).

There are several National Forest and of course Big Bend NP. Lots of COE parks. This says that there are 675K ac of Federal lands in Texas. From what I am reading, the pass is now just called the "Senior Pass".

I've been told that 94% of the land in Texas is privately owned. It doesn't look like BLM has a big footprint here.

Try 1.92% public lands (3.2 mil ac). #47 in the country only ahead of NE, IA, and KS. But we are #21 by volume.

I was playing with my Allstay app today, and noticed it did have a BLM filter on it. Did not notice it before, nothing showed up in Texas, lots west of Texas.
