(music)>>IF LIVING LIFE IS ABOUT ADVENTURES, ADD CAMPING TO YOUR BUCKET LIST. WHETHER YOU STAY IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED CABIN OR CAMP IN A TENT, SLEEPING IN NATURE IS AN EXPERIENCE YOU WON’T FORGET. TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR OUTDOOR ADVENTURE, HERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW. TEXAS OFFERS ALL TYPES OF SCENERY, FROM MOUNTAINS TO FORESTS TO MILES OF OPEN COAST. YOU CAN EXPLORE ALL OUR STATE HAS TO OFFER ON THE TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE WEBSITE. ONCE YOU’VE DECIDED WHERE TO GO, YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION JUST LIKE YOU WOULD AT A HOTEL.>>PARK RESERVATIONS, THIS IS WILLIE, HOW MAY I HELP YOU?>>YOU CAN DO THIS BY PHONE OR EMAIL OR THROUGH OUR WEBSITE. WHILE YOU CAN’T RESERVE A SPECIFIC CAMPSITE, YOU CAN PUT IN A REQUEST FOR A PARTICULAR TYPE, LIKE A WATER OR ELECTRIC CAMPSITE. A RESERVATION WILL ENSURE YOU HAVE A SPOT BUT CAMPSITES ARE ASSIGNED ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. ON YOUR DAY OF ARRIVAL, YOU’LL CHECK IN AT THE PARK HEADQUARTERS TO GET YOUR SPOT. POPULAR PARKS ARE OFTEN RESERVED MONTHS IN ADVANCE SO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY.>>I GOT MY WINDSHIELD PASS RIGHT HERE.>>NOW LET’S TALK TENTS. THEY COME IN ALL MAKES, MODELS AND SIZES. YOUR LOCAL SPORTING GOODS STORE CAN HELP YOU PICK ONE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU. ONCE YOU’RE AT YOUR SITE, YOU’RE READY TO SET UP CAMP. FIRST, LOOK FOR THE TENT PAD OR FLATTENED AREA WHERE YOU CAN SET UP YOUR TENT. NEXT, CHECK THE AREA AND CLEAR AWAY ANY STICKS, ROCKS OR OTHER OBJECTS THAT COULD POKE YOU. DECIDE WHERE YOU WANT TO ORIENT YOUR DOOR. DO YOU WANT TO CATCH A BREEZE OR FACE AWAY FROM THE WIND? AND MAKE SURE YOU GIVE YOURSELF A LITTLE PRIVACY. NEVER BRING GAS-POWERED STOVES OR LANTERNS INSIDE YOUR TENT, BATTERY-POWERED ITEMS ONLY. REMEMBER, STATE PARKS ARE HOME TO A VARIETY OF WILDLIFE. KEEP ALL FOOD OUT OF YOUR TENT AND PACKED SECURELY SO AS NOT TO ATTRACT ANIMALS. IF YOU THINK YOU’D LIKE TO TRY CAMPING BUT AREN’T READY TO GO IT ALONE, COME TO ONE OUR TEXAS OUTDOOR FAMILY WORKSHOPS. WE PROVIDE THE GEAR AND WE’LL SHOW YOU HOW TO USE IT. AND WE’LL INTRODUCE YOU TO FUN STATE PARK ACTIVITIES LIKE KAYAKING AND GEOCACHING. GO TO THE TEXAS OUTDOOR FAMILY WEBSITE TO FIND A WORKSHOP NEAR YOU.

  1. Hi. It's just different strokes for different folks. No need to knock them. We all like the outdoors and maybe can't and are quite happy with their own experiences. Try and keep an open mind and just appreciate that we are all happy with our own experiences.

  2. Camping why do I need a reservation and then not be able to choose where I go, I don't do that , and yes I do appreciate the wildlife they taste nice once cooked on the barbecue !

  3. Yea right. Limit 8 persons per site. So the boy scouts book hundreds of sites and stay in one site. Then the park sites are 3/4 empty. Thank you, another dumb azz government agency. Don't believe? See for yourself.
