Lake Texana State Park is a state park in Texas, United States and is located in Jackson County, halfway between Houston and Corpus Christi on Lake Texana.

The park was acquired by a 50-year lease agreement with the United States Bureau of Reclamation/Lavaca-Navidad River Authority in 1977. The park opened in September 1981.

The majority of the park consists of mixed oak and pecan woodlands. White-tailed deer, squirrels, rabbits, nine-banded Armadillos, and raccoons are numerous. There are occasional bobcat and wild turkey sightings. American alligators are also found in the park.
