A spot by a crackling fire. A stick. A bag of marshmallows, a box of graham crackers, a few bars of Hershey’s chocolate. Nothing ever tasted as good as a s’more consumed the right way, with friends or family and a ghost story or two, the air filled with the half-comforting, half-scary sounds of frogs, cicadas, and mysterious snapping branches, reminding campers that they’re on an adventure. And as the fire dies down and bodies tired after a day of hiking, swimming, canoeing, or horseback riding—depending—settle into their sleeping bags and tents for the night, a familiar kind of peace descends. Trips like these are, after all, a Texan rite of passage, thanks to the Lone Star State’s 95 state parks and countless other options for communing with the great outdoors. Whatever your experience level—whether you’re just getting your feet wet with this camping thing, you don’t mind hiking up the side of a mountain with your gear, or you’re more of a glamper—there’s a trip for you. And maybe one for your dog, too.
