Set alongside onion creek in East Austin, this park has a beautiful hiking and camping spots- and it doesn’t stop there. Camp at one of the 80 some campsites and fish an afternoon away.
Just 30 minutes south from Houston, this little over 2,000 acres) park offers its visitors sun, sand and lots of fun. Great for a day trip or a nights stay. Campsite are right on the water or on the bay side. RV parking available as well as water/showers. Sites also include tables, grills, and they even have cabins to rent if you were looking for that option
In the shadow of elephant mountain and under the west Texas desert sky is this beautiful wildlife management area. Hunting, hiking, camping and self guided driving tour are all available. Sites are primitive but have picnic table, sunshade, and fire rings.
On a much needed vacation, we went out for a few day hikes out here and it did not disappoint!!! Amazing rainforest views and hikes that wind through the beautiful landscape that is Puerto Rico. I would 100% advise anyone going to the area to check it out. Bring a good mount of water some snacks and make a full day of it!￼ be careful, trails can get a little slippery after some rain.
Beautiful spot for hiking and overnight camping. Set by the river there are bathrooms as well as parking spots available. Very nice get away from the city scene
Camping, swimming, climbing, grilling. You name it. They probably have it. Great spot to throw up the hammock and hang out for the day or stay the night. Affordable, pleasant and clean. Love the state parks and this one on the lake doesn’t disappoint. Swim and boat at your own risk
Tucked away in Marfa, el cosmico is an excellent retreat from the city. With traditional bring your own tent spaces to Safari tents, yurts and old-school RVs. They have a space for what you are yearning for. Check in and guest house complete with a shop and indoor showers sit at the front over looking the campsite and hot tubs. The hot coffee in the morning was very much welcomed before we set out to see the town and surrounding are exhibits that are all close by. I would definitely recommend. We stayed in a safari tent complete with a wonderful bed, side tables, lamp fan and power.
The state park offers two styles of camp sites. Primitive and ones with a little more pizzazz.
Primitive sights are right on the beach. Water is located along the beach and restrooms and rinse off showers are 50 yards away from the sites more towards the main headquarters. Full restrooms are closer to headquarters
Sites with power; Picnic tables Grills Water 50amp hookup Shade shelter Bathroom and showers closer by.
The sites with power are behind the sand dunes. Fires unless in the grill are NOT allowed. For a campfire, go down on the beach.
Beautiful beaches, some of the clearest water you will find in Texas. Head towards the state park for quieter crowds. Swim at your own risk! State park down the road offers tables, grills, water hook ups, showers and restrooms. Trash cans are available along the beach.
I remember going here as a kid and going back some 20 years later the park doesn’t disappoint. With a new pavilion that hosts multiple picnic tables great for an afternoon lunch after visiting the track sites or swimming in the river. At the time that I visited camping still wasn’t open yet but there is tent camping sights set back from the main parking area. The property has multiple grills, picnic tables and even a pavilion that you can rent out with an outdoor fireplace that overlooks the river.
Set on the lake, muleshoe recreation area is run by the LCRA. Clean camp sights dotted a long the lake offer access to the water. With 10 miles of hacking/biking trails that are mostly under tree cover, the park offers a nice amount of day hiking. There is a water access point as well as 1 outdoor shower up by the main gate. Fire wood can also be purchased here. (Grills and fire rings at camp sights.). Very friendly staff.
