Camping in North Texas
When most out-of-staters think of Texas, they will think of sand and desert and barren lands. This, however, is simply not the case. Yes, Texas does have desert and sand, but there are also wooded areas and plenty of sites to go camping, especially in the north of the state. With multiple locations throughout north Texas, you will be able to find just about any kind of camping facility to match your needs.

Eisenhower State Park

The Eisenhower State Park has over 423 acres and sits on the border between Texas and Oklahoma. With nearby lakes and views to die for, this is one of the best camping locations in the state. You can take a boat out on the water to go fishing or hike and mountain bike on the surrounding trails, which were used to transport goods in the early 1800s.
