In a modern world often dominated by big cities, big concrete, and little computer screens, The Best in Tent Camping: Texas is not only a guidebook, but 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 over-worked, over-stressed city dweller 50 special places to re-charge his head, heart, and soul. The book provides detailed campground maps, key information (such as facility details, fees, restrictions), driving directions, a rating system (subjective, of course), and most importantly, first-hand 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 which emphasize certain activities. Traveling thousands of miles across the huge expanse of Texas, the author visited each campground to report up-to-date and accurate information to 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 any camper the 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 most of us seem forced to keep. The book also contains local history, local attractions, camping tips, and recommended reading material to enhance knowledge of the area or expand an understanding of Texas's natural features.
