Fort Richardson State Park

Because of my last-minute planning, there were not many campsites available in Texas when it was time for me to book our September camping trip. I found one at Fort Richardson State Park in Jacksboro, which isn’t far from us and is a park we’ve never been to, so I reserved a spot for two … Continue reading

Camping and Hiking at Robbers Cave

Texas state parks have stayed full during the last several months; at times it’s nearly impossible to get a camping reservation. The good thing is that it has forced me to go to new places. After researching the top ten camping and hiking spots in Oklahoma, my dad and son and I decided on Robbers … Continue reading

Neither of us had been there before. At the time, Texas was in the middle of one of the worst droughts since … Continue reading

A Trip to Caprock Canyons State Park

My 9-year-old camping buddy and I headed Northwest into the sparsely populated part of Texas two weekends ago. Every town we came to is a landmark of some sort. As we drove through Stamford, home of the largest amateur rodeo in Texas, the temperature dropped to 25, which is a tad cold for tent camping. In … Continue reading
