RV Campsites in Texas

RV Campsites in Texas
Texas has more lakes than Minnesota and enough RV campsites to allow you take advantage of many of them. The most interesting thing is that only one of those lakes is natural and the rest are man-made. An RV trip trek through Texas provides excellent opportunities for rock climbing, hiking, biking and exploring the perhaps surprisingly diverse topography of this enormous state.

Austin Lone Star RV Resort

Those who want to take a break from roughing it to catch edgy music or just revel in the self-proclaimed weirdness of Austin would do well to make a stop at the Austin Lone Star RV Resort. Those who prefer to take advantage of Austin's more traditional stature as the state capitol are also in luck at this well-equipped campground that includes luxuries like hot tubs, a heated pool, Saturday night steak dinners and a $1 all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast from Friday through Sunday. Perhaps the best amenity offered here is Austin's vital bat population that keeps pests to a minimum. Recreation includes a swimming pool, volleyball and basketball courts and horseshoes.

Eisenhower State Park

Near Denison you can find 95 RV-only sites at Eisenhower State Park campground. Several of the sites are located in forested areas that provide shades, but this can be a very uncomfortable place to set up camp during the dog days of Texas summer. Other than July and August, however, this is a very nice place to spend a few days as recreation ranges from swimming and boating to hiking and mountain biking. Nearby you can find Lake Texoma and the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. A restaurant is located about three miles across the lake. The site also includes a rec hall and lighted fishing pier as well as a station for cleaning fish. Pets are allowed as long as you keep them on at least a 6-foot leash and you must clean up after them.
