All Texas state parks do charge a per person fee, but it is not always $7. Some are as low as $2. Combine that with a camping fee of around $20 for a total of $24 per day for 2 people, and that will still beat most private parks.
Here is the website for Texas State Parks. Generally, $4.00 per person a day. BUT, if you intend to use the park system frequently, purchase the Texas State Park pass for $70.00 a year. You will recover the $70.00 in a short period of time and have the remainder of the year to save additional fee's. "Do the math"! Four coupons for one day of half price on a campsite and NO entrance fee's throughout your stay, whether camping or not! The coupons are usable only for the second night of camping and one coupon per visit. TPWD: Campsites
