TACO Unveils Top Camping Destinations Across Texas and South-Central Oklahoma

As summer ushers in a wealth of outdoor recreational opportunities, the Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) is encouraging camping aficionados to explore the diverse and picturesque landscapes across Texas and south-central Oklahoma. 

Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of TACO, highlighted the array of opportunities for summertime fun, which range from activities like fishing to more adrenaline-pumping ones such as river tubing.

One destination recommended by TACO is By the Lake RV Park, nestled between Dallas and Oklahoma City. 

This family-run park allows visitors to immerse themselves in nature, offering an extensive range of amenities that include nature trails, a playground for kids, a dedicated area for pets, and a scenic fishing pond. The park also boasts a swimming pool for those hot summer days.

Fredericksburg RV Park in Fredericksburg features all pull-through sites, a modern clubhouse featuring a kitchen, a big screen TV, and a recreational room, along with a well-equipped gym and a picturesque koi pond.

For water lovers, Lakeshore RV Resort in Garland is a coveted destination. The park, which is situated on the shores of the stunning Lake Ray Hubbard, offers 184 sites, including 70 pull-through campsites, an activity building equipped with computer and workout rooms, a barbecue area, and a beach-style swimming pool for soaking in the summer sun.

In the vibrant town of San Marcos, Pecan Park Riverside RV Park is located on a scenic bluff overlooking the San Marcos River. Known for its river tubing experiences, the park also features nature trails and spacious RV sites shaded by mature pecan trees. Visitors can enjoy the indoor swimming pool and hot tub, a children’s playground, and a library area for a more relaxed day.

For those seeking a bit of luxury, the San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort in Highlands is a prime choice. With over 300 concrete RV sites, some of which offer river views and private spas, this park caters to the upscale camper. Other amenities include luxury rental accommodations, a riverfront clubhouse, and ample parking for boats and trailers.

The Summer Breeze USA Resort in Katy caters to both adventure and relaxation. Boasting a tropical village-themed water park, a Texas-sized covered hot tub, and a bark park for four-legged friends, the resort is a popular destination for families.

For the nature-inclined, The Vineyards Campground and Cabins in Grapevine sits on 52 acres of a mostly wooded, scenic area around Grapevine Lake. Kayak and bicycle rentals are available for those wanting to explore the park’s surroundings.

Lastly, the Woodland Lakes RV Park in Conroe provides a natural haven for those looking for a more tranquil getaway. The park can accommodate large RVs and offers an exercise room and several ponds that are home to a diverse array of wildlife.

While this comprehensive list of camping destinations offers a wide range of experiences for campers, it also highlights the richness of private campground offerings. 

For private campground owners and operators, the diverse amenities and unique selling points each park offers underscore the importance of innovation and creativity in attracting a broad spectrum of campers. 

This extensive and varied list of campgrounds underscores the opportunity for operators to tailor their offerings to the specific needs and interests of a diverse range of campers, from families to solo adventurers, further enhancing the appeal of private campgrounds and their contribution to local economies and tourism industries.
