Have you Glamped your Casita?  I have, and OH I love it!  :dncinban:   Exterior paint is next!

Now I need great destinations, so please share your recent destinations in Texas - oh and any modifications (with pictures) of your Casita.

How adorable! I envy those in the forum who can decorate, and those who can construct.
I hope to one day be one or the other.
Congrats on an amazing job!

I cannot figure out how to post photos on this site - anybody help? BUT just wanted to say I LOVE IT!!!! Keep it up! Hmmmm.... So many great places in TX. My favorite camping spot is Inks Lake State Park - hike the easy trail by the Devils Watering Hole and go UP the rocky cliff by there and see the most awesome trail views around - take a dip in the lake too. Make sure you go to Llano TX to Coopers BBQ as nice day trip - eat at the local park there on the river and enjoy the view. Another day trip from there is Enchanted Rock - hike to the top - bring water and lunch and enjoy the view from up top it is an easy climb and very well worth it. Pedernales Falls State Park is really nice to visit and have lunch right at the falls. A MUST see is Hamilton Pools in Dripping Springs TX. Hike down an easy path and enjoy a picnic you will not forget. Sooo many things in the hill country I love....

You've definitely made it your own. Love the marshmallow toasted sign. Did you make that up? Would make a great T-shirt.  I guess you don't plan on every selling your Casita. Might want to consider decals instead of paint on the outside surfaces.  Just a thought.

I loved the glamped up Casitas. I don't have mine yet but have big plans for her.  Keep up the good work.

 

I haven't been there but have heard Tyler State Park is a great place.

Here is a link to a lady's site that has done a lot of Glamping types mods to her Casita. Also the outside is the color of a free range chicken egg. As I recall it was painted that color prior to her purchase. She is also from Texas so maybe y'all can meet live sometime.

depending on location of you home base in Texas........most state parks are great places to camp. You posted a picture on the beach in Galveston. If you like the beach areas, one we enjoy is the Lower Colorado River Authorities Camp Ground at Matagorda Nature Park.

http://www.lcra.org/...ature-park.aspx

 

It sits right on the Colorado River as it dumps into the bay. There are Kayak trails in the park and they do rent equipment if you don't have your own. The nature center has programs they put on and you can tour the center. Off of 2031 the road leading to the park there is access to the beach via Beach Rd to Dunes Rd. People camp out on that beach. You have to purchase and annual pass as I recall it was somewhere around $10. 

 

Consider picking up the Texas Public Campgrounds Directory. I've found them at the Texas State Welcome Centers or at some local Convention & Visitors Bureaus in tourist towns. It will list all of the state, federal and local gov't facilities. COE campgrounds are great as well as some "jewels" that are city run parks.

pass along your travel experiences, were are always looking for new places to explore

 

Happy Travels!

The Frio River is best appreciated when tubing when it is 100+ degrees outside. I love the area around Concan, Garner State Park and Lost Maples SP. 

 

I'm envious! The crowds will be down now that the kids are in school

 

Enjoy the Glamp!! :D

Wally Z,  I found the phrase online, and made it my own on the chalkboard surface (vinyl) on the door.  Then I used a fixit spray to keep it from smudging. :)

THIS IS FABULOUS!  Great job!! :)  I am actually very familiar with Inks Lake State Park. I have a lake house up in that area.  You did mention a few things I haven't yet tried, but definitely will.  Coopers BBQ is YUMMY! :)

 

Thank you for sharing!
