Camping in the Lone Star State offers thousands of trails to explore, gorgeous sunsets to enjoy, and countless stars to gaze at by the campfire.

If you fancy heading out into the rugged Texas wilderness, these four campsites are outfitted with a classic Tentrr setup – a platform, Tentrr CampBox, and loo box – if you so choose. Get some dust on those spurs and head out to these amazing campsites.

1. Wampus Cat

Enjoy wineries, wildlife, fishing, or horseback riding when you camp at Wampus Cat, which has been in the same family for eight generations. Hike to the remains of a German settlers’ wall, built in the 1860s, or the ruins of an old 1840s homestead.

If you’re observant and very lucky, you may catch sight of the elusive Axis deer or even the Luckenbach Sasquatch. This site is primitive and located in a fenced-in area of seven acres. While there, you may spot armadillo, bobcats, ringtails, or even the occasional mountain lion.

2. Rio Bravo Ranch

When you think of camping in the Texas desert, this is the campsite you invariably imagine – dusty wide open spaces spotted with cacti, backed by distant mountains. The wilderness around Rio Bravo Ranch, a family-owned camp, has been enjoyed by the same family for generations.

Camp on the ”backside”, an austerely beautiful and ruggedly empty area. It is only you, your companions, the incredible sunsets and sunrises, and a star-studded night sky. During the days, hike to the riparian area of Rio Bravo Ranch across the Alamito Creek.

This is as primitive as primitive gets, so be prepared to bring everything in and take everything back out, and there’s room for four campers.

3. Lake Cisco Campground

Only an hour and a half from Fort Worth, this lakeside campground is a perfect escape from the city. Admire star-strewn skies from your campsite at night, and during the day, hike, fish, swim, and explore the nearby rock caves as well.

Bring your RVs, large groups, and your furry companions to escape the hustle and bustle in this secluded Tentrr site next to Lake Cisco. This site is primitive, with a strict bring-in, bring-out policy, and there are no toilets or showers.

4. Texas Treehouse Swings Camp

Not only can you camp at this campsite, which is close to Lake Jackson, but you can swing at it as well. On this sugar plantation in Texas, you can find swings on many of the majestic oaks in the area, fun for both adults and kids.

Visit the scary old dead tree, the beach 20 minutes away where you can drive up to the water, or find the secret swing in the forest. This campsite offers multiple areas, from campers to tent sites and everything in-between, making it great for larger family get-togethers.

Free firewood, a nearby porta-potty, and multiple activity opportunities makes this a prime Texas camping destination.

Last Word

These four campsites in Texas have it all, from starry desert nights to lakeside getaways. Whether you’re looking for a weekend escape from the city or a perfect spot for a family reunion, you can find it at a Tentrr site in Texas.
