Whether you’ve got a deluxe camper with a queen-sized bed, satellite TV and – the works, – or just a bedroll and a soft rock, camping in Texas is an excellent idea. There’s such great variety in this supersized state that you can enjoy experiences from the rugged feel of west Texas to the soft breezes along the beach. Just bring your sense of adventure.
When someone says “Take a hike, buddy!” around here, please don’t take it the wrong way. Texans are polite, hospitable folks. It’s likely a simple reminder of the endless natural diversity you can explore while getting fresh air and exercise. Mountain biking is extremely popular as well, with many paths (and non-paths) in all levels of difficulty.
There’s water everywhere in Texas. If you want to go with the flow, there are 80,000 miles of scenic rivers and streams of every shape and size here. So the chances to paddle your way to fun and relaxation are nearly endless. Of course, if you’re a fisherman, this is one of the best places to visit. Texas has over 100 major lakes loaded with big ol’ lunker bass, plus hundreds of miles of coastal shoreline and bays full of fish just waiting for your next cast.
