Just got stationed here in SA(FSH), would like to learn fishing to pass time on the weekends.

Don’t need to catch anything specific or a lot, just somewhere local cool and relaxing to spend time away from work.

Thanks!

Any quite Texas lakes to tan?

Looking for a quiet spot on a lake so my gf can tan with a little less clothes on without being bothered while I fish. Preferably closer to central Texas but just a quiet spot.

Camping destination recs? (HTX)

Hey everyone! Me and my boyfriend wanna go camping but now that it’s hot as heck, we need some destination ideas. I’m looking for a nice camping spot in a place that cools down at night. 2-3 hours from Houston would be ideal. Even better if it’s near a body of water or river :)

Thanks everyone!

Texas Nature Hidden Gems?

Hi guys does anyone know any nature”hidden gems “ in Texas near Austin/San Antonio. I live in Houston and love nature. I’m more so into blue/clear water places such as Pedernales Falls State Park and Garner State Park, but those places are really popular and require a payed entrance. I’ve seen people on YouTube and instagram visit beautiful preserved nature creeks, lakes, etc. No one ever gives the location of these places and i understand why, but I’m really intrigued by all of these unknown and lesser known nature spots. The narrows would be a good example of this^ I’d love if anyone can give me more information and details.

Best Secluded Camping Close to North Texas?

Hello! I'm looking to go on a solo camping trip within in the next few months and was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for the North Texas area, preferably around a body of water for swimming. The more secluded, the better, as I'll be a solo female and I feel safer with less people around who could spot that, for obvious reasons. I'm a very experienced camper and have stayed in some wonderful primitive spots, I've just never had the opportunity to do it alone and would like to start! I'm looking to not go further out than 5 hours from Denton if possible! I am already aware of the good Arkansas spots but I've been there many times now and would like a change of scenery! Thank you!

Wheelchair accessible trails in Texas

Due to a hip injury, I haven’t been able to hike for a while and in my search for ways to overcome that, I found a few websites that have tons of wheelchair accessible trails across the entire state. I thought it might be a helpful resource.

Fishing Amistad

My brother is going the trip of a lifetime to Texas, leaving the UK next week. He's trying to book a guided fishing day on Lake Amistad, but has had no luck.

Would you good people have any recommendations? We have gone through the suggestions that Google has thrown up, but nobody is available for the 19th May.

Game Warden. No Fishing License and Not Fishing, but Around Friends Who Are Fishing

If you go in a boat with family members or friends who are fishing, and the Game Warden shows up, can you be charged for fishing without a license if you are not fishing at all and just only there just for the ride and just only to watch them fish?

Summit Trail, Enchanted Rock SP, 20 Apr 24

Trailed opened up about 2 minutes before we got there. 2.6 miles roundtrip, 423 ft elevation gain. Despite the weather, it was cool, breezy, and beautiful.

Advice about Canyon, TX?

I'm traveling from DFW for a once in a lifetime trip to Canyon, TX. Arrive at 6:00 pm on day one, stay 2 nights, leave in the early afternoon of day 3. I am returning to my home state, and will probably not be this way again. My question is, should I buy tickets to one canyon, or both? I will be hiking, but my spouse will mostly be in the car. What can I see/ do in roughly 1.5 days?

Dispersed Camping Areas in North Texas

I moved here in 2019 from Virginia and have been super frustrated attempting to find anywhere to do what I would call "back country camping". It seems like this is referred to as dispersed camping, is that correct? If so what's the best resource to finding what state parks offer this? I have a few local places (Eisenhower State Park & Juniper Point) that have "primitive camping" spots, but finding any real information on them is next to impossible. I've got LBJ grasslands or Dinosaur Valley on my radar for a weekend trip before it gets too hot, so what's the deal with these as far as "primitive" or "dispersed" camping?

State park with Wi-Fi access.

Hello All. Is there a state park in lower Texas that would have WiFi access at the car camping spots ? I’d like to spend several weeks in a park and I work remotely. San Antonio/Hill country area, Austin as well. TIA.
