Here are a few websites to help find that perfect campsite, give you ideas, or make life on the road easier!
The State of Texas operates hundreds of beautiful state parks with camping throughout the state. Usually start parks provide the true “camping” experience with RV parks situated in forests, or along rivers and lakes. Some state parks offer full RV hookups (water/electricity/sewer) and are some of the least expensive options. State parks have Junior Ranger programs for the kids, along with hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, and many other camping activities!
This website includes all the federal parks operated by the National Park Service, National Forest Service, and the US Army Corps of Engineers. These campgrounds offer many of the same features as the Texas state parks, and range from primitive sites (no hookups) to full RV hookup sites with paved pull-through sites. You will be surprised how many of these National RV parks are located throughout Texas. National Park Service parks also have a Jr Ranger program and the kids can earn cool badges for participation.

Boondockers Welcome is a nationwide network of private property owners who allow RVs to stay overnight on their property for free. You can search for only locations that offer electricity and look for 30 or 50amp hookups if you want to run A/C. Depending on your travel plans the low cost of an annual membership here can pay back big time in free places to stay as you travel. DO remember if you are traveling during the summer you want to search only locations that offer RV electric hookups (and there are plenty of them).
