The 2022 RV Travel & Camping Guide to Texas is being provided to consumers at RV shows, visitors’ bureaus and campgrounds in Texas and across the country by the Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO).
Brian Schaeffer, the association’s executive director and CEO, said this year’s theme is Texas’s diversity.
“We take you region by region to show you the variety of things to see and do and experience across the great state of Texas,” Schaeffer said.
In addition to museums, festivals and scenic natural attractions in each region of Texas, the guide includes listings of more than 400 campgrounds, RV parks and resorts, complete with locator maps, listings of park amenities, websites and contact information for each park. The directory also features a Texas Saver Card, which provides 10% discounts at participating parks.
Although TACO has seen a 25% increase in visitors to its travel planning website at TexasCampgrounds.com, which includes a mobile friendly version of its 2022 RV Travel & Camping Guide to Texas, the association continues to print 250,000 copies of the guide each year because they remain in high demand.
“Printed campground directories are faster and easier to use than online directories,” Schaeffer said. “People hang on to our printed directories and use them again and again to plan their trips because they’re packed with ideas on fun things to see and do in every region of Texas.”
The 2022 RV Travel & Camping Guide to Texas is distributed at many RV shows across Texas, including the Houston RV Show, scheduled for Feb. 9-12, and the Austin RV Expo, scheduled for Feb. 17-20. Anderson’s Brochure Distribution Service will distribute the guide at 25 other RV shows across the country.
“Our biggest sources of distribution are the Texas Information Centers, the points of entry into Texas,” Schaeffer said.
The guide is supported by advertising from prominent campgrounds, RV resorts and RV dealers in Texas such as PPL Motorhomes, the largest RV consignment dealer in the country, and Platinum Cottages, a prominent park model RV manufacturer.
