Texas Campgrounds is kicking off their Fall Tour today! The 2015 TACO Fall Tour enables guests to take a behind-the-scenes look of three highly successful parks on October 12, 2015. Each park will provide an in-depth tour of the facilities, review fact sheets on park operations and conduct a robust question and answer session.

“For the first time, we’ll be getting the perspective of a KOA, a Yogi Bear Jellystone Park and an independent operation all in one tour,” said Brian Schaeffer, CEO/Executive Director of TACO. “Attendees will receive a ton of valuable information all in one place.”

This unique look at park business models enables TACO clients to optimize procedures. The Fall Tour also includes profit-producing presentations on topics like planning and hosting successful activities, when to increase rates, how to maintain unique operations and how cabins and cottages can increase profitability.

The tour bus includes only 50 seats, so interested guests had to register beforehand. Whether you’re looking to hook up an RV, rent a cottage or pop a tent, Texas Campgrounds include parks that offer a variety of sites and campground experiences.

Thousand Trails is a corporately owned network of campgrounds across the U.S., with seven locations in Texas. All properties are located on lakes and rivers, which provide plenty of opportunity for family-friendly fun.

The name derives from the original owner in Washington who bought a piece of land and cut trails in it to ride his motorcycle. He added camping sites and the business grew, expanding to other states. Thousand Trails is a unique way to camp and save money doing it. If you’re an avid camper or RVer, check out their Annual Membership Pass.

Terry Munoz says the pass includes 30 days of free camping and nightly rates as low as $3.

Thousand Trails campgrounds attract Winter Texans and other snowbirds who love to escape the colder seasons. There is also a large population of families at their campgrounds, who seek to spend time in the outdoors and make memories on vacation. Every property features planned activities and abundant wildlife, so there is plenty to do and see.

If you haven’t already made reservations at a Texas RV Park, Campground or Resort for the winter, it’s time to start thinking about where you want to make your winter Texas home!

Head way down south to the Texas Valley, where the winter is mildest and the outdoor mountains and other scenery provides a beautifully tranquil place to park your rig for a while. Set up near Big Bend National Park for outdoor activities like hiking, birdwatching, scenic drives and stargazing. Or explore many other top-rated campgrounds in the Rio Grande Valley and surrounding areas by browsing through our South Texas region on TexasCampgrounds.net.

Central Texas is always another popular location for Snowbird camping. The Hill Country provides interesting scenery and changing autumn leaves on pecan trees, making pretty sites. And many parks take advantage of live, local music and Texas BBQ, hosting dinners and dances. Many parks also take bus trips into town, where residents can enjoy plenty of fall festivals going on in New Braunfels and Austin. Browse Central Texas RV Parks for a Hill Country winter getaway.

Or check out parks in the Houston area, where the natural beauty of East Texas Pines transitions well into the mild winter. There are plenty of activities in metro Houston, including football and basketball games, concerts, trade shows and more. And in the surrounding areas like Conroe and The Woodlands you can enjoy hiking, kayaking, golfing and more year-round.
