We live in DFW and I use mt TT for both recreation and business and Texas Parks are always first on our list of places to stay. One of the reasons is security, you can't get in without talking to a ranger and they lock the gate every night. There are hosts dotted throughout the park. We've never had an issue at a state park.
P.S. If you don't have a Park Pass look into getting one.
+1 on the Texas State Parks being great places to stay. But, not all of them have gates. The ones nearest the metroplex do, but the ones in the country typically don't. Basically, there are gates installed where gates are needed.
