Camping In Texas And More

Camping is as much a part of Texas tradition as the state itself. Outside of the huge metropolitan locations lies an array of state parks and open terrain just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. And since you can go camping almost any time during the year, you have no excuse for leaving the sleeping bag stuffed in your spare room .

Over seventy state parks are found in the state, so there’s definitely one nearby. Set out with the family for a relaxing weekend at the campsite. Complete the cliché with a bonfire and a day of fishing with the little ones, and if things go well you can cook the fish you caught for supper that night.
