Thousands of 'Winter Texans' Head South

Fri Dec 30, 2016

Winter has definitely hit western Canada with a wallop, but campgrounds, RV parks and resorts from Dallas to the Rio Grande Valley are keeping busy as thousands of "Winter Texans" make their way into the Lone Star State from the US Midwest and western Canada.

“Our members are telling us the winter of 2017 is going to be a busy time for many Texas campgrounds,” Texas Association of Campground Owners Executive Director Brian Schaeffer says. “Some parks have already sold out their monthly sites, while others still have vacancy for the winter. So it’s good to check TexasCampgrounds.com and call the parks that interest you for details."

Texas has a wide range of public and private parks that provide everything from RV sites and rental accommodations to organized activities and entertainment, even in the middle of winter.
