Visitors will enjoy a self-guided driving tour through the land where the former president was born and buried, plus his 717-acre ranch, you won't have to walk your feet off to see this state park. The park is home to the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm. The farm is a working farm that lets visitors step back in time and experience life on a German farmstead in the early 1900's. Throughout the park, visitors will find evidence from three cultures: Native American, Spanish and German. The Native Americans lived in the Hill Country, then the Spanish conquistadors, and in the early 1800s German immigrants settled there. Park visitors will also be able to picnic, fish, swim, and see Texas longhorn cattle. And note that there are two visitors centers, about 14 miles apart. The first is the National Park Visitor Center, run by the park service, and another operated by LBJ State Park and Historic Site near the ranch.

What a hidden and mostly undiscovered jewel! As a former history teacher, and child of the 60's, I have always wanted to visit the Texas Whitehouse. My family and I spent a very relaxed afternoon touring the ranch. Yes, it is off the beaten path, but well worth a visit. Even my children who normally dislike history enjoyed our time... More

This historic site and the Texas White House was a very interesting way to spend an afternoon. It's free to enter the national park,you just have to stop at the visitors' centre and get a permit for your car. You can then go and visit a farm that has stayed as it would have been in the 1920s. Volunteers show... More

We took our kids here for a history adventure and boy do you sure get that it is a low price for the tour and you get to also tour the White House of Texas they have telephones that have actual recordings from LBJ to other esteemed historical figures. This is something every parent should take their children to.

Loved seeing the Texas White House. We did the Jr Ranger Program and learned so much about Lyndon and his amazing wife Ladybird. We were extremely impressed by the functioning runway and ranch. A wonderful place to visit to visit with your family.

Just driving the hill country decided to visit. Didn't expect to be really impressed with all the history and knowledge of the tour guide at the Texas White House. Lots of history. Original artifacts and collection displayed thru out the tour. Left me with the desire to read and learn more about this president. It took me back to different... More

Our tour guide peter was well informed. Surprised the only cost was $3.00 each for the House tour. We will differently return next time we are in the area.

Beautiful property. The film about LBJ was excellent and I enjoyed the fact that LBJ was part of the narration. The ranch and river was so serene. Worth the stop. I would estimate you need 2-3 hours here.

So many things to do in this park and it is a little unknown Gem. The actual park itself is across the river but you have to check in and get a pass first. Did I say the pass is free. Take a look at the airstrip LBJ used to come in on Air Force One, his house and lots... More
