About Texas Camping

Nothing thrills the heart of a true explorer like the stunning diversity of outdoor adventure that awaits in the state of Texas! From the beauty of the Gulf Coast to the High Plains, Texas offers terrain that varies between mountains, woodlands, rolling hills, semi-arid plains and high desert. With more than 78 state parks and numerous wildlife areas, historic sites and natural attractions, Texas truly has something for everyone.

Insiders know that camping in Texas is much more than just hanging out around the campfire. In a state that boasts everything is bigger, natural features as well as wildlife areas are vast and rich, begging the weary traveler to indulge in all the sights and experiences this type of diversity provides. The variety of parks, campgrounds and backcountry offers the full range of adventure for those looking to ‘rough it’ all the way to those who choose to enjoy nature with a few more comforts.

South Central Texas is a prime area of the state to explore. Known far and wide as the Hill Country, it is so named for its rolling hills and woodlands. Famous for its excellent wineries, historic small towns and natural beauty, the Hill Country also boasts a unique offering for campers known as Enchanted Rock State Park.

Enchanted Rock is a large pink granite dome that rises 425 feet above the surrounding terrain and is the largest granite monadock in the United States. Indians, Spaniards and early settlers all had stories of magical, spiritual or unexplained happenings around the rock which gave the feature its name. These days, one of the most intriguing sights is at night, after a rain. The wet dome seems to glitter in the moonlight and while regarded as a simple play of light on the granite, the effect adds to both the mystery and enchantment of the area.

Another intriguing site in the Hill Country is Jacob’s Well, a short 78 miles southeast from Enchanted Rock State Park. Fed by a natural artesian spring, Jacob’s Well consists of a large pool connected to a vast underground cavern system that sprawls more than 4300 feet. The spring is connected to the Trinity Aquifer and emits thousands of gallons of water each day where visitors can enjoy the cool 68 degree water. Jacob’s Well is a popular and welcome retreat from the famous Texas heat!

Texas is the second largest state and for some, camping in Texas can, and does, turn into a life-long pursuit. With so many hidden gems, and areas to explore, it could take decades to experience it all. The Dyrt has you covered though!

Nice park, nice employees

This is an older park. That being said the sites are well spaced, the employees are very nice, and the park is lined with trees.

Nice Family Atmosphere

This is a quiet place. There's about 10 full hook up, level, pull through sites. Pretty surroundings. Kyle and Sarah keep it clean and family friendly. There's a laundry room. No Bathhouse. They're building a pond, which will be lovely once it's done in 2022. There are small houses nearby. …

Beautiful Views of Canyon Lake

We stayed here to disconnect, meaning no WiFi, cable, or septic.  It was nice not to have WiFi and cable but not having septic limits my stay to 4 days.  We have a 42’ 5th wheel so driving to the dump station during out is not ideal but also not a deal breaker.

Beautiful but the sites are close together.

Nice Park with little room between sites

The park it’s self is nice and clean.  Staff for the most part is friendly and nice.  The pool is a hopping place over summer break and on the weekends when it’s warm.  RV sites are tight in the daily/weekly sites and parking your 40+ foot rig and tow vehicle in the spot are probably not happening.…

Building a new campground

Lots of full time military/GS/maintenance employees. Sites are backwards with all hookups on door side. Occasionally loud with jet noise when winds are from the N (underneath the downwind). New park is currently in the planning phase.

Amazing RV park and campground!!!

Roads make it easy to get around and get into your site. Most pads are concrete, very clean well kept campground. View of lake is wonderful, peaceful and huge spaces. Lots of places for kids to play or ride bikes. Several bathroom shower houses, nice beach. Great At&t signal to work lake side.

Mostly Permanent Residence

Not sure about the first two reviews on the RV park.  For one thing you cannot boat into this park nor is it on a lake.  It is located on Highway 67 west of Glen Rose.  It's basically a long term full time residential park.

Cleburne SP is one of our go to locations south of the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.  Very nice spring fed lake with lots of hiking trails and fishing spots.   Poplar Point Loop has full hookups with some having lake front access.   North Creek Loop also has full hookups.   Electric and Water only…
