Camping

Camping is ranked as one of America's favorite outdoor activities. Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday and relax among nature. Brackenridge Recreation Complex is the home of two parks, Brackenridge Park and Campground and Texana Park and Campground, both of which are situated on beautiful Lake Texana. Guests are able to use the amenities at either park during their stay.

Brackenridge Park and Campground

Brackenridge Park and Campground includes 134 campsites. Most are nestled among the many beautiful oak and pecan trees. Portions of the campground are in a wagon wheel design that we refer to as circles. Two circles make a set of circles with four sets of circles in the campground to choose your site from, all of which are full hook-ups. Additional full hook-up and partial hook-up sites are located along the campground road in open and wooded areas. Sixteen pull-through sites are also available.

Texana Park and Campground

Texana Park and Campground includes 141 campsites. With full-hook up, partial hook-up, and tent campsites available throughout the campground, guests are sure to find the perfect place to camp, relax and enjoy their getaway. Pick between a campsite located directly on the Lake Texana cove, or tucked away surrounded by beautiful oak trees.
