Camping across Texas
#1
Need help finding places to camp as I am going through Texas. Campgrounds, state parks, safe boondocking...whatever your experiences have been

We stopped in for a night at Tho­mpson Grove Picnic Site. Was just us there. Small place, couple picnic tables and vault toilets. About 15 miles from Texline, Tx. Stars were awesome because its quite isolated. In the morning 3 dogs came around, they were friendly enough.

I second Freecampsites.net. Most Walmarts and other big box stores are good too. We also stay overnight at the small rest area/picnic table stops along state roads. They don't have anything but tables and trash cans. I think you can stay for 24 hours.

Freecamsites.net is a great go to
Also, forum members who aren't on the road may offer accommodation
I'm stationary, and I have a spot in the yard members could use, if you were in the Garwood area and wanted more than an overnight, neighborhood is run down and probably looks unsafe, but I've had no problems aside from one pesky woman in the area who has since moved
Columbus Walmart / HEB (where I work) allows overnight parking, and I see some vehicles there for more than one night

Many of the rest areas off the freeways are safe, with 24 hour security, for overnighting.

I'd like to give myself a few negative ratings, because I am such a big meanie. The forum won't allow it. Feel free!

Magnolia Beach near Port Lavaca if your near the Gulf. Its SE of San Antone about an hour. You can drive right on the beach as its all hard packed seashells & boondock camp right next to the water. Free! on the beach No permit needed & no time limit. No one ever messes with you. Pik is my rig when I spent a week there first of December on my way to the desert.

Also campendium.com

When contemplating Texas state parks, keep in mind that in addition to the camping fee there's a park entry fee for each day you're there. If you plan on using their parks a lot, it's worth it to get an annual pass.

The best places to camp in Texas are in Louisiana and New Mexico.
