East Texas is home to piney woods, bayous and plenty of RV parks and resorts. From Tyler to Nacogdoches, to Houston and Beaumont, visitors can experience unparalleled natural beauty, small town charm and a little Louisiana inspired flare.
Texas travelers can find many East Texas parks along I-45. Many people make the scenic drive traveling from Dallas to Houston and vice versa. Veer off the path a bit to visit the Sam Houston National Forest, Lake Conroe, or some adventurous zip lining near Athens, Texas.
Travel northwest from Houston on US-59 and you’ll pass through Lufkin, Nacogdoches, and Marshall. Make a stop in Carthage for the Texas Music Hall of Fame or go fishing and canoeing at Caddo Lake State Park, straddling the Texas-Louisiana border near Karnack. Don’t miss local festivals like Jacksonville’s Tomato Festival, Naples’ Watermelon Festival or the Nacogdoches Blueberry Festival.
Small and large East Texas towns offer a step back in time, with old fashioned charm, new conveniences, natural beauty and plenty of places to park your RV and discover the local attractions. Use the Texas Campgrounds Find A Park feature to plan your East Texas adventure today!
