Ten Great Places to Go RV Camping in Texas

There’s no doubt about it — RV camping fans love the Lone Star State!

There are many great places to go RV camping in Texas!

Here are ten great reasons to pack up the RV and take a family vacation to Texas: 

  1. RV Camping to Abilene – This north Texas town played a big part in frontier days, and it offers visitors the chance to experience the Lone Star State during the days of cowboys and cattle drives. Be sure to visit Frontier Texas, where multimedia experiences will teach your kids about the people and places that contributed to the development of Texas.

  2. Austin for RVers – Looking for an urban destination with plenty of place to play outdoors? Go no further than Austin, where a string of lakes along the Colorado River march right into the middle of town. Fish, camp and hike at Lake Austin, Lake Travis or any of the four other lakes within easy driving distance of the city.

  3. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area – A pink granite dome in the heart of Texas? That’s right — Enchanted Rock State Natural Area boasts a four-hundred foot granite dome that’s perfect for hiking and rock climbing. A day use area, this park doesn’t have RV camping facilities, but nearby facilities such as Fredericksburg RV Park offer comfortable camping.

  4. Galveston Family RV Vacation – With fantastically fun places like Moody Gardens waiting to entertain your family, it’s time for an RV road trip to Galveston. Don’t miss the Battleship TEXAS, the Seaport Museum and the great RV campground at Galveston Island State Park.

  5. Goliad State Park and Historic Sites – Park your RV at this state park northwest of Corpus Christi and then immerse yourself in Texas history. Ruins of an 18th century mission, the birthplace of General Zaragoza and the Mission Espiritu Santo State Historic Site are just three of the fascinating places to visit near the Victorian town of Goliad.

  6. Lake Mineral Wells State Park – In an area once known for its healing mineral waters, this state park is popular with hikers, bikers and equestrians, thanks to a scenic twenty mile trailway. Just forty five minutes from downtown Fort Worth, the park welcomes RV campers with full-service campsites and nice amenities.

  7. Port Isabel – Right across the Queen Isabella Causeway from Padre Island, the city of Port Isabel is an historic treasure. Port Isabel Lighthouse can be explored and photographed to your heart’s content, and the Treasures of the Gulf Museum and Port Isabel Historic Museum are a short walk away.

  8. San Antonio for RV Campers – The City of San Antonio, TX is filled with cultural, historic and just plain fun attractions for the entire family. Why not park your RV at one of the many area campgrounds and then spend your vacation enjoying the city’s Paseo del Rio Riverwalk, historic treasures like The Alamo and a walk on the wild side at the San Antonio Zoo?

  9. Seminole Canyon State Historic Park – An incredibly rugged setting near the US/Mexico border is home to some of the best preserved pictographs in the world. Take a guided tour into the canyon to explore ancient cave art, and take advantage of convenient RV camping on-site.

  10. Toledo Bend Reservoir/Lake Sam Rayburn – Two top bass fishing lakes sit side-by-side on the Texas/Louisiana border. Toledo Bend Reservoir is surrounded by the unspoiled beauty of the Sabine National Forest and Lake Sam Rayburn cuts right through the middle of Angelina National Forest. If you’re looking for a spot to make an extended fishing and RV camping trip to Texas, these two lakes fill the bill!
