The Smart Camper’s Voice / Entry 21
Keeping up with our series on great places to camp per state, we will take you to the second biggest state in the US. As always we bring our readers three great places to setup camp although with this state we will consider doing a second part. We are clearly talking about Texas, The Lone Star State. With an extension of 268,820 square miles, it just shies to Alaska in it’s vast size. A great deal of American history has taken place in Texas from El Alamo and Davy Crockett to the final battle of the Civil War which was fought near Brownsville.
That is the motto of Texas and anybody who visits will testify that it is true. Texans are kind and friendly people always open to conversation and comradely. Following are three great locations to camp in Texas.
Big Bend National Park: Far away in West Texas lies Big Bend. A true testament to the pass of time due to it’s sea fossils and dinosaur bones. The National Park Service operates three developed front country campgrounds with almost 200 campsites for which you will need a lot of time to fully explore. From bird watching to fishing, the to do list is quite extensive in Big Bend.
Lake O’ The Pines: A true dream for any recreational fisher. With about 18.700 acres of water it is safe to say that the fishing is good. Surrounded by amazing pine forests, Lake O’ The Pines is also home to boating, camping, bird watching and much more.
