7 Glorious Campgrounds In Texas Where No Reservation Is Required
Camping season is fully underway, and it can get pretty pricey sometimes depending on where you’re staying. It’s always nice to save some money whenever possible, so here are seven awesome campgrounds in Texas that are completely free and require no reservations. Some are right by the beach while others reside more inland, but they all have one thing in common: enough space to accommodate whoever shows up. This means no stressing or planning ahead. If you happen to be in the area come nighttime, feel free to stop by knowing there’s room for one more. Is there anything better than that?

Some of the best campgrounds in Texas can be found in our state and national parks. These campgrounds are typically the most well-kept and feature more amenities than their less-traveled counterparts. If you’re looking for electricity hookups, running water, and bathroom facilities, definitely consider camping at a more popular spot.
Are you allowed to camp in state parks?
Yes, camping in most state parks is allowed and encouraged! Before planning a trip, simply head to the park’s page on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department website and double-check to make sure you can camp there.
What are some of the things I need to take on a camping trip?
Of course, you’ll need all the basics such as your tent or RV, a first aid kit, water, sleeping bag, air mattress, and cooler. Here in Texas, a strong insect repellent and sunscreen are obligatory as well, during the warmer months.
