Ten More Trips Worth Gearing Up For

Even more camping suggestions, from El Paso’s Franklin Mountains to Caddo Lake in East Texas.

Guadalupe River

Whether you want to swim, kayak, fly-fish, or simply be part of the joyful throngs of tubers who crowd the river in the summertime, the Guadalupe is the place.

Navasota River

This river seems to have a little bit of everything—juniper trees reminiscent of the Hill Country, tall pine trees as in East Texas, and the dense hardwood bottoms one would expect to find in these parts.
