Spring Is Tent Camping Time

Spring is the time to haul out the camping gear and start planning trips to your favorite camping destinations. Whether it’s off to the mountains, finding a spot in the national forests of the Piney Woods, or maybe even the seashore, Texas has lots of camping sites to offer.

A couple camping tips to keep in mind. State parks offer the option of having electric and water hookups at campsites. Restrooms usually have hot showers. National parks are a little more rugged. Tent sites are more primitive, seldom having water and electric, and no hot showers. In some parks there may be limited RV hookups.

This year we plan to visit two national park sites…North Padre National Seashore, and Big Bend National Park. Watch for articles and pictures I’ll post after those trips.
