Best Winter Camping Sites in Texas

Finding the right camping site to take your Wildwood Travel Trailer isn’t easy when Texas has so many great choices. From the sandy shores to national parks, travelers have quite the decision to make. Here are some of the best winter camping sites in Texas recommended by us at Hanner RV Supercenter to make selecting your destination a little easier.

  • Colorado Bend State Park

Located 90 minutes from Austin, Texas, Colorado Bend State Park is home to some of the area’s most scenic rock formations and fun-filled biking trails. A 65-foot waterfall flows all year round.

  • Big Bend National Park

There are numerous reasons that Big Bend National Park is one of the most visited parks in the country. For starters, it runs along the Rio Grande River, making it the perfect spot for kayaking and canoeing. There are even canyons and valleys to hike through.

  • Canyon Lake RV Park

Located on the shoreline upstream of the Guadalupe River, the Canyon Lake RV Resort provides quick access to several famous Texas attractions. Attend the Texas Butterfly Festival or stop by the Gladys Porter Zoo to make memories you won’t soon forget.

  • Palo Duro Canyon State Park

Travelers who want to spend time in the great outdoors need look no further than Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The park features horseback riding through canyons, exploring caves, and hiking and biking opportunities.

  • Padre Island National Seashore

Located on the Gulf Coast, Padre National Sea Shore offers plenty of opportunities for water sports. The water is warm year-round, so don’t be afraid to jump in!

How to RV Across Texas

 

Here at Hanner RV Supercenter, we know that the best way to see the country is cruising in your RV, but you don’t have to travel far from home for a great road trip. Here are some great suggestions on how to RV across Texas.

  • Jacob’s Well. Located right between Austin and San Antonio is the spectacular Jacob’s Well near Wimberly. The park is free to enter; however, if you want to swim in the clear waters, you need to make a reservation online.
  • BBQ Road Trip. If you love to travel and you love food, combine both for a spectacular trip. This road trip starts at Snow’s BBQ in Lexington and also has stops at Louie Mueller Barbecue, Taylor Café, and Southside Market.

Tour Texas Hill Country. Take a tour through Texas Hills Country to see cowboys, spring-fed rivers, and beautiful countryside. This trip starts in San Antonio and heads through Bandera, Fredericksburg, and the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, before it eventually ends at the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers.

If you are ready to start your Texas adventures, come visit us at Hanner RV Supercenter and we will help you find the ideal camper trailer or motorized RV to make your travelling dreams come true.

Dallas RV Museum

RVs are the American go-to for spending a weekend at a campsite or touring the country. The recreational vehicles have been around since the Ford Model T hit roadways, but modern models barely resemble those of the past, like those at the Dallas RV museum.

Located at the Jack Sisemore Traveland dealership in Amarillo, the RV museum is open to the public and offers a look at dozens of restored trailers and motor homes. It all started when the Sisemores began trading and restoring unusual models when sales were slow.

The collection includes an iconic 1941 Westcraft trailer that was previously owned by a World War II defense worker. Inside is displayed a picture of the USS Sigourney emblazoned with the signatures of 17 presidents.

A 1937 Kozy Camp, one of the first-ever tent trailers, is available to the public as well, and a 1976 Argosy trailer offers a look at how camping was done back then—Coleman gas stove, picnic table, and all.

Arguably the most popular attraction in the Dallas RV museum isn’t even called an RV, but a passenger bus. The 1948 Flxible passenger bus played the title role in the movie RV, starring Robin Williams.

We here at Hanner RV Supercenter are happy to see visitors of all ages excited to learn more about the history of RVs!
