If you live in the Texas area and you want to plan a fun summer or spring trip with your family, we strongly recommend that you check out Lake Ray Roberts State Park. It is one of the best places we have visited in the past few years. You may assume that it is like a typical state park and you will not have a lot of fun, but we have been there and have to say that it is incredibly maintained. The whole area is a ton of fun and you will have plenty of things to do for a whole weekend.
For instance, they have a great camping site where you can spend time with the whole family. Between camping, fishing, boating and other activities, you will never be bored. It is a safe camping site where the whole family can have fun. You can go for a day or spend the night, depending on how much you love being outdoors! The one recommendation we would make is to take a cooler with you. If you have a cooler full of ice and drinks, you will have a much better time in the Texas heat!
If you are hoping to find fun things to do during the summer, a camping trip should be up on your list. It is not only a great way to bond with the whole family, but it is also a lot of physical activity. Instead of sitting around and playing video games all summer, your kids will get to enjoy themselves outdoors and run around for hours! You can tell stories by the campfire and do all the things that you would have wanted if you got to take this trip with your kids.
Other Fun Activities
Aside from camping, you can also check out some other sites in the area. There are so many great spots that you can visit. For instance, you can check out hiking trails that are in the nearby area. Perhaps you can do that on your first day before you set up camp. Or you could think of the hike as your last adventure before you head home! In either case, you will have a great time.
Just make sure you find a gas station nearby where you can stock up on ice and some cold drinks for your cooler. Even if you have the cooler with you in the car, it is nice to be able to quickly grab those drinks when you are done with the hike.
There is also a fun water park in the area. We had a wonderful time at the water park with our kids. It is a whole lot of fun for the whole family. Between the rides and the events they have going on, you can spend a whole day at the water park and not get bored. We certainly were not bored there for a second!
Texas is full of great areas to visit if you love the outdoors. But we do believe that Lake Ray Roberts State Park is up there as being among the best. We have never been to that area and had a bad experience. You will certainly have a lot of fun, especially if you prepare adequately.
Make a list of all the gear and accessories you will need on your trip. Make sure you have enough clothes, bug spray, portable chargers and other gear. Ensure you have the right shoes for hiking or walking around outdoors for hours. The right gear can make any trip a lot more enjoyable!
