Overview

This up-to-date guidebook is just the ticket for campers, hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, birdwatchers, nature photographers, and folks who just like to enjoy the outdoors. It offers all the details to every state and national park, recreation area, national forest, and historical park in Texas. Where appropriate, maps are provided to identify specific campsites within the larger parks, and "at a glance" charts provide a quick and easy way to determine the extent of such amenities as showers, flush toilets, electricity, etc. The unique features of each park or campground are described, as well as the recreation available, be it boating or bird watching. Whether it's for a Saturday getaway or a two-week vacation, this handy book is a great guide to outdoor fun in Texas.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The most massive state in the continental United States has a plethora of travel destinations in natural settings, and they are too numerous to cover completely in a skinny magazine-style visitor's guide. Miller's robust book shares details on every one of Texas's state and national parks, recreation areas, national forests and historical parks. Miller describes 183 parks, giving information on each one's location, offices, facilities, main attractions and history. While some entries skimp on details (e.g., the listing for one particular lake park doesn't offer a specific address), others are quite in-depth, with bits of trivia on the people the parks were named after and how many species of birds can be found there. The book concludes with a chapter on national historical and day-use parks without camping facilities, and includes helpful appendixes on parks that offer group facilities, and bicycle and horse trails.
