From the High Plains of the Panhandle to the tropics of the south, Texas is great for car camping weekends. In a modern world often dominated by big cities, big concrete, and little computer screens, Best Tent Camping: Texas by Wendel Withrow is not only a guidebook, but it's also an escape manual for all nature lovers who dare to dream of a different existence. This book will help the reader navigate the back roads of Texas to find those special locales that will give the overworked, overstressed city dweller 50 special places to recharge his or her head, heart, and soul. This fully updated and now full color guidebook provides detailed campground maps, key information (such as facility details, fees, restrictions), driving directions, a rating system (subjective, of course), and, most importantly, firsthand information about which sites provide the best tent camping experience to avoid the R.V. scene as much as possible. To help make the perfect campground easy to find, the guide is divided into the major geographical areas of Texas and provides cross-referencing for parks that emphasize certain activities. Traveling thousands of miles across the huge expanse of Texas, Wendel visited each campground to report up-to-date and accurate information for the next tent camper who is looking for that special place of solitude and comfort. Based on more than 30 years of following the little-known back roads of Texas, the individual park and site descriptions will give you a head start on where to put down those tent stakes for a night or a week (if you are lucky enough to really slow down the hectic pace that most of us seem forced to keep). The book also contains local history, local attractions, camping tips, and recommended reading material to enhance your knowledge of the area or expand your understanding of Texas's natural features.
