    Yoakum County Park near Denver City has electric and water at each site, plus a dump station! All for free! Beautiful area with pond, trees, and a golf course. I have a video on it on my YouTube channel: Poodle Professor. Also Willow Oak Recreational area on Toledo Bend is free until further notice. Has a boat ramp, running water, and pit toilets. Really beautiful.

    If you are driving up to Colorado and need a spot just before you hit New Mexico, try Thompson Grove in Rita Blanca Grasslands.

    The Amarillo travel visitor center is the best place to sleep 😴 when your at the half way point to Colorado! Restrooms are so clean, & close to the highway but not too much noise.

    Great info! We are slowly heading that way. Your app / website is my first point of research!

    I have a 40 ft motorhome and it is set up to go 2 weeks with no hook-up, every thing is 12 volt with 1800 watts of solar so we do not like rv parks Big Bend is just a wast of space they need more places to just park for the night boondock what little spots they do have is all full JUST A BIG WASTE OF OUR PARK and $10 a night is not bad

    Watching this from Big Woods. That kinda cracked me up but yes, it’s a lovely spot.

  15. Colette Coe on September 22, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    Made it to Boone Park πŸ’š

  16. Robert Hubbard on September 22, 2022 at 5:06 pm

    Was just at Big Bend. Back country permit was $10 per night, not $10 for up to 14 days. Camping was allowed only in designated areas that required reservations.

  17. PrecisionT on September 22, 2022 at 5:10 pm

    Why didn’t you mention how many days people can camp on Padre Island? Or did you?

  18. Summer Stardust on September 22, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    Texas easy to drive across because of the many free roadside campsites on the backroads.
