Texas Campgrounds

Last Summer we went camping down at Padre Island National Seashore. I wasn’t sure if this was something that we would enjoy, so I didn’t go all out on our camping gear. We found out that not only James and I loved camping, but so did the girls! As we are starting to plan our family trips for this year, I started to look for campgrounds near and far. Today I am sharing with you our bucket list of campgrounds that we want to start visiting. Head over to the State parks website by clicking on any of the titles below! As we visit each of these sites, I will be updating the images to our own. Currently, the images are from the Parks websites.

Caddo Lake

Out in East Texas, you will find Caddo Lake State Park. This park is great for paddling the bayous that are lined with Bald cypress trees draped in Spanish moss.

Cedar Hill

Just minutes from Downtown Dallas is a little oasis in the big city.


Spring fed lake and trails through the forest in the Texas Hill Country!

Davis Mountains

I can not wait to see the night sky like those in the photos from Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Dinosaur Valley

Where Dinosaurs Roamed! Play in the water and track dinosaur tracks at this state park.

Enchanted Rock

With a little bit of hiking, you can camp out at Enchanted Rock near Fredericksburg Texas


Right off of the Frio River, you can swim or hike. Why not take an inner tube down the river and relax at your campsite!

Kickapoo Cavern

How would you like to see the evening bat flight? Head into the wild caves on a $10.00 per person tour on Saturdays and explore underground.


Mustang Island 

Five Miles of beachfront camping.

Palo Duro Canyon

Another location with beautiful night skies. Up in the Texas Panhandle, you can explore the canyon by foot, biking, horse or even car.

10 Awesome Texas Campgrounds to get you closer to nature. From Caddo Lake to Palo Duro there is a camping spot for you and your family. These are just a few of what is on our Texas Camping Trip Bucket List.
