How to Use This Directory First, consult the map at right to find the Region Number of the area you want to visit in Texas. Each section begins with an introduction to the region. To find a campground, refer to the Region Maps with their locations (and listing numbers) pinpointed. Or, if you know the name of the park, find its listing number using the table on the page opposite the map. Each section is ordered by listing number. Every member campground has its own listing with a description and a unique Finder Map that will lead you to the park entrance. Be sure to check under the “Services & Facilities” heading at the bottom of each listing to see if the park offers any or all of the following: Pull-Thrus, Wi-Fi, Cable TV, Cabins, Swimming Pool, LP Gas, Recreation Hall, Tent Camping. The stars next to park names in the directory have to do with using the Texas Saver Card (complete details below). Red stars H indicate campgrounds offering a 10% discount off daily rates. Check out the Big Pull-Out Map in the center of this Guide. Use the Glossary to find your favorite Campground — then use the coordinates provided to locate their city on the Big Pull-Out Map — and continue on the TACO trail! Use the FREE Texas Saver Card (included with this directory) to SAVE $$$ on Camp Site Fees.

West Texas It is fitting that West Texas is Region 1, because it’s first in Texas history. Three major archaeological sites are among the six National Historic Landmarks in this region, giving visitors a glimpse of the lives of the earliest Texans. Others recall the days of frontier settlements and cattle drives romanticized in a thousand Western movies.

T ador/TxDO

Michael Am

First excavated in 1939, the Lubbock Lake Site has yielded plentiful evidence of ancient people and extinct animals from several digs in the 336-acre preserve. Visitors can tour the site and even watch live archaeological digs.

Texas Timeline People migrate into what is now Texas, leaving artifacts and bones of horses, mammoths, giant armadillos, giant shortfaced bears, and more.

c. 11000-8000 BC

Corn farmers settle near modern-day Presidio, on what is believed to be the oldest continuously cultivated farmland in Texas.

c. 4000 BC

c. 1400 BC

People in the lower Pecos River area leave distinctive rock art painted on cave walls and other rock surfaces.

1 AD - 1500 Native American population of Texas steadily grows. Major tribes at the time of first contact with Europeans include Karankawa, Caddo, Apache, Comanche, Wichita, Coahuiltecan, Neches, and Tonkawa.

Begun in 1877, the J.A. Ranch grew to over 1.3 million acres with a herd of over 100,000 cattle at its peak in 1883. It is still owned today by descendants of the original founder, John Adair.

Michael A. Murphy/TxDOT

Fort Davis was founded in 1854, one of a string of forts throughout the Southwest with the purpose of protecting emigrants, mail coaches, and freight wagons, and to control the activities of the Comanche and Apache tribes.

Fort Amarillo RV Resort It’s time to wrangle up those little calves of yours and head on down to the hootenanny at Fort Amarillo RV Resort. We’re 30 miles outside of Palo Duro Canyon State Park, often referred to as the Grand Canyon of Texas, and it’s a sight you won’t want to miss out on.

Home of the Road Runner Cafe & BBQ

There’s so much to see and do around the canyon, and the views are absolutely breathtaking. At the canyon, you’ll find the perfect trails for hiking, biking, and walking, and ideal spots for camping. The outdoor musical drama Texas is a perennial favorite. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, see the canyon on horseback. Historical and natural programs are offered for the curious adventurer to learn more about the park’s wildlife and the different lives the canyon has seen over the years.

Open daily for breakfast & supper in season

North Texas North Texas boasts eight National Historic Landmarks, and a number of other important attractions and gatherings that continue to leave their mark on the state. From the buildings constructed in Dallas to commemorate the Texas Centennial, to frontier forts and fabulous flower festivals, this region of Texas has charms enough for history buffs of all varieties. The Hall of State is just one of several striking examples of Art Deco architecture in Dallas’ Fair Park. The grand entrance features the sculpture “Tejas Warrior” who (despite the title) wields an arrow-less bow to symbolize peace.

Henry Miller wrote, “One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.” A traveler’s journey is far more important than the destination, though the destination is never half bad. The greatest memories that you and your family will cherish can be found on the road. Camping is an American tradition and favorite pastime, whether you sleep in a tent on the ground or in a cozy RV.

Take a Stroll Through Texas History in Houston

Where getting away feels like coming home

The Houston area is home to the last of the battleships to participate in World War I and II. The San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site was the first memorial museum in the U.S. in 1948, and offers visitors a unique look at history. On the same year of the anniversary of Texas independence, the battleship Texas was presented to the state of Texas to be commissioned as a flagship of the Texas Navy. Currently, the battleship is anchored in La Porte. You can take a self-guided tour of the battleship, climbing 60 feet above water to the flying bridge or plunging 20 feet below water to the engine room. You’ll see restored sleeping quarters, guns, medical facilities and more.

The park also includes the San Jacinto Battleground Monument.

The Museum offers an enthralling experience for all ages, telling the story of the Pacific Theater battles of WWII. Visit the flagship of the Museum complex, the Admiral Nimitz Museum. This building was first famous as the old Nimitz Steamboat Hotel. Now it houses exhibits on the life of Fredericksburg’s most favorite son. The George H.W. Bush Gallery exhibitions convey the shock of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in a respectful and authentic way with media-rich presentations and testimonials. The six-acre, three-museum complex offers an impressive collection of memorabilia and learning experiences. In addition, the Japanese Garden of Peace offers a tranquil oasis for reflection.

South Texas Coast Significant historical events in the South Texas Coast region include LaSalle’s shipwreck and subsequent attempt at French colonization, the establishment of Spanish settlements, important clashes in three wars, the establishment of Texas’ biggest ranch, and the retirement of one of the most celebrated ships of World War II. Historic monuments and museums commemorate many of these and other sites of interest, and may be seen as part of a visit to this sunny corner of the Lone Star State.

The area of South Texas near Brownsville has been the scene of several famous battles. In the Battle of Palo Alto, U.S. forces blunted a Mexican attack on Fort Texas, and routed them in the Battle of Resaca de la Palma the next day. Nineteen years later, in the Battle of Palmito Ranch, Confederate forces repulsed an attempted Union march on Brownsville. It was the last engagement of the Civil War.

Texas Timeline (continued) Moody Gardens opens in Galveston. This non-profit attraction uses nature to educate visitors about conservation and wildlife.

A Park with Rich History Pioneers James and Frances Hatch purchased 100 acres of land in the nineteenth century, which would one day become the historical Hatch RV Park. The founding family raised twelve children and farmed the 100-acre lot in Corpus Christi, producing fresh vegetables for the Trading Post. After selling half of the property, the remaining acres were divided among the twelve children, and Hatch’s daughter Rhonda began the trailer park business on her share of the property. Eventually, the property passed on to her twin brother Raymond. Today, Hatch RV Park is a premium park in Corpus Christi offering RV lots and a duplex. The park still sits on the original Frances Hatch homestead, and the current manager is the fourth generation running the park. For more information about Hatch RV Park, visit www.hatchrv.com.
