    Lake Brownwood and Colorado Bend SP are also good. Seminole Canyon is also pretty unique. Angelina Forest was also cool, I kinda stumbled on the old lumber mill not knowing it was there. Thought I was in the Blair Witch Project. That would be terrifying to go to at night. Also can’t beat the coast. Stayed at Mustang Island SP once around New Years and I had the whole beach to myself. South Padre Island was too crowded and trashy on the beach the same time of year.

    inks lake state park

    0:33 state as big as Texas offers a diverse nothing everything is privately owned which I support but don’t lie cause Texas don’t have any besides a total of 12 throughout the entire state which costs hundreds of dollars for travelers and RV’ers. The only benefit to stopping anywhere in Texas is paying out of pocket to enjoy Texas. Claiming they “built” this state, nope. Y’all robbed it from the Indians. Hence why Texas is forever cursed with its heat and millions of back to back problems that go along with it. Oh I’ll just start with heat and drought. Texas can go F itself

    No Garner State Park or Colorado Bend State Park? Great video and would love to see you revisit this 🙂

    Enchanted Rock scared the heck out of me. As we were falling asleep after our campfire we heard a blood curdling scream that could not be explained. I woke up to a pack of coyotes laughing and then later again to the howls of something that sounded bigger. After we recapped the next morning to our park ranger of last night events he confirmed that the parks known for the supernatural. I need to come back and visit before it warms up again lol.

    I would add dinosaur valley state park.

  8. Dysfunctional Veteran on September 6, 2021 at 4:30 pm

    Yea great places to camp for long periods but the first time you slingshot a squirrel
    Bot do they get pissed off😁

  9. Jerod D on September 6, 2021 at 4:33 pm

    They just had to throw in the billion years comment didn’t they.. sigh

  10. astranine on September 6, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    I have been to all three and they are all great places to camp.  Big Bend has many nice trails to hike, my personal favorite is "The Window"  Palo Duro is a large hole in the ground and would be hard to find if it weren’t for the signs.  Enchanted Rock is easy to find and has some really cool trails which go down in and between some rather large boulders. I would like to have seen at least one eastern Texas camping spot make the list, though.

  11. Yvonne Aguilar on September 6, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    Didn’t care for any of these places . I live in the desert . Don’t need to see anymore rocks, dirt and tumble weeds . Give places with trees, water and greenery . What horribly ugly places they chose .

  12. Rather B Fishing on September 6, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    I miss Texas Best!

  13. Marcos Paulo on September 6, 2021 at 4:36 pm

  14. Sunny Burrito on September 6, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    Man I miss Texas…

  15. TYREE JOSEY on September 6, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    I LUV TEXAS

  16. John Wells on September 6, 2021 at 4:42 pm

    Although these parks are beautiful, they’re were so many more than that could have been on this list.

  17. monteleone1010 on September 6, 2021 at 4:44 pm

    Went to Texas to spend 3 weeks there a few years back= I LLLLLOVE Texas!!!

  18. DeltaAlphaNovember Lawler on September 6, 2021 at 4:45 pm

    Elizabeth Warren the bit bull? She is the pesky Chihuahua that runs when we stomp our feet to show to him/her they are a little dog. Bye the way I love dogs.

  19. D Si on September 6, 2021 at 4:45 pm

    I’m from Texas. They didn’t have any camping in east Texas. TCR has got to mainstream and commercial the show sucks

  20. M G on September 6, 2021 at 4:49 pm

    Garner St. Park is badass

  21. The DadVenture Channel on September 6, 2021 at 4:50 pm

    wondering how freaking hot it is right now in big bend? like 120!! so hot

  22. Joel Bondurant on September 6, 2021 at 4:51 pm

    3 minutes on camping in Texas is 3 minutes too much. Camping in Texas is like having dinner at 7-11.

  23. Mariano Mojica on September 6, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    Sooo…. as a homegrown Texan what do I like the most freedom to Bear arm and a good burger check out this Texas Freedom shirt here https://www.bonfire.com/texas-pride-t-shirt/

  24. Alan Roger Barrett on September 6, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    I’m in Texas right now, and backpacking around the world!
    Can’t wait to see some of these places.

  25. ITGeekMonkeys on September 6, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    If you want a forested escape, Davey Crockett National Forest is beautiful.

  26. Charles Steel on September 6, 2021 at 4:56 pm

    @ITGeekMonkeys  as a native of Texas’ piney woods region I was annoyed by how treeless all three sites chosen here were. LOL. Don’t get me wrong, they are gorgeous in their own way. I guess I’m a true East Texan rather than West Texan though because when I think of camping I think of being in the forest. 

  27. JJ on September 6, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    1BILLION YEARS OLD! Wow!

  28. S V on September 6, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    Enchanted Rock should not be #1

  29. Johnny MaC on September 6, 2021 at 4:58 pm

    Davey Crockett national park

  30. Joseph DuPont on September 6, 2021 at 5:03 pm

    Just don’t screw around with the Mexican border areas you get yourself killed you should warn people about that this is serious business

  31. mukwah1111 on September 6, 2021 at 5:04 pm

    Magnificent countryside & views. It must be cold. I can see your breath. I can’t vote for Texas best camp sites from Canada. I did zip in and out of San Antonio one day a few years back but that was the extent of my Texas experience. Wish I had been able to stay longer & see more. Thanks for another great vid.

  32. Cody Mcgonagill on September 6, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    You better bring some cold cuts if you’re headed to Palo Duro Canyon no campfires no barbecue grills and most of the time open flames of any kind propane white gas none of it

  33. Native Texan Outdoors on September 6, 2021 at 5:06 pm

    Who cooks marshmallows over duraflame log😂

  34. Rather B Fishing on September 6, 2021 at 5:06 pm

    I miss the old TV show. Thanks for saving the old shows.

  35. Bipolar Spock on September 6, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    Hmmmm i think i would wait till winter time in texas, to go camping.

  36. Kathy Fann on September 6, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    Want to stay warm in winter

  37. Yvonne Bledsoe on September 6, 2021 at 5:08 pm

    Big Bend is too far from east Texas/ don’t go to Palo Duro in the summer – too hot! fall, winter, spring is best. What about Garner St. Park? Inks Lake St. Park and many more!

  38. Fazenda recanto Feliz ! SLS on September 6, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    Muito legal mesmo esse vídeo

  39. el pinche nariz on September 6, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    Territorio originalmete mexicano

  40. azzkicker1337 on September 6, 2021 at 5:11 pm

    I’ve seen Enchanted Rock listed as #1 in a few of these Texas Best episodes and while pretty, I think there are far better places to CAMP. I can’t believe Garner wasn’t on the list.

  41. Glenn Z on September 6, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    I’ve camped at palo Duro several times. Beautiful park, but I’ve never once been there when a campfire was allowed, and the park rangers weren’t the friendliest bunch. Weather conditions can be a crap-shoot, too. I’ve experienced everything from cool and dry, to scorching hot, to armageddon storm — sometimes all in one weekend.

  42. Kathy Fann on September 6, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    In Brownsville TX

  43. Ryan Payne on September 6, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    So happy that I watched this

  44. patrick geffon on September 6, 2021 at 5:17 pm
