Golden Gate Canyon SP is absolutely gorgeous! We loved the experience at the park, the trails are great and the views are wonderful. The drive up can be a bit breathtaking, but it can be done!
Pace Bend was the backdrop to many Dad and kiddo camping trips! Tent, kayak and you're ready to go. Back to nature, still close to civilization!
Caprock Canyons provides an excellent opportunity to see Bison wandering about pretty freely! There are also plenty of prairie dogs to keep you amused. I love the way each campsite is shielded from the others by space and natural trees and scrub.
We only stayed one night, but we are so glad we did! Beautiful canyons, many opportunities to climb, bike and swim.
Palo Duro Canyon is just amazing! We have been 3 times, as it is one of our stopping points on our Texas and Colorado trek. Seeing the canyon is such a treat! Be sure to ask about the best spots to take pictures at sunset.
If you go in the Summer, expect it to be HOT, and always have water with you. The drive down to the campsites has lots of switchbacks, but we have successfully navigated it with our RV in tow. MANY opportunities for hiking, climbing, biking and just walking around. The rock formations are just wonderful, and if you are a photographer, you will love this park.
The Texas Show is a MUST- at least once in your life!!
This family friendly campground sits on the banks of the Llano River, with several spots for swimming, floating and fishing. The bird life is abundant and there are easy trails through the beautiful tall trees. This Texas State Park is very well maintained.
