Spotlight on Texas - Our Ultimate global camping guide

This month we are kicking off our guide to camping all around the world. Places we have been to and some of our amazing community members also. We are taking suggestions for the Winter guide now also. Get in touch. We are kicking off the series shining a light on the wildest of states, Texas. Tips, tricks and places - a simple 2 minute read to tell you all you need to know. And don't forget your Crua tent.

At the end of the month, we will share this in a handy to use guide to store wherever you need it.


One place that is always high on a camper's bucket list is the beautiful state of Texas. It is a part of the United States that holds a special allure. This draw might come from the sheer size and vastness of the state. It might have been kindled by old cowboy westerns and picturing the many breathtaking scenes. In many ways, Texas represents all we love about the outdoors. The diversity, the wildlife, the mountains, the winding rivers, and vibrant woodlands.

5 things to consider when camping in Texas during the Summer

  • The summer months bring huge numbers of vacationers to the Lone Star State so be sure to book your campsite well in advance
  • Water sports and water activities become even more prevalent in the summer
  • Rain is rare but the climate can be unpredictable all the same
  • Temperatures during the three months consistently sit in around the 90F mark
  • It is particularly dry out West and tends to cool down considerably at night. Out East tends to be significantly more humid with very little respite.

5 tips for surviving the Texas heat

  • Stay Hydrated - Make sure you have access to plenty of water and stay hydrated. If you are heading off on an afternoon of hiking, be extra careful. The heat combined with exercise means that the typical 5-8 glasses per person might not be enough.
  • Set Up Camp In Shaded Areas - An obvious one but extremely important nonetheless. If you are out in the sun all day, you want to be sure you get a break at day’s end.
  • Do Your Housekeeping Duties Early - Temperatures are highest in the middle of the day so plan ahead. Get all your daily chores such as chopping wood and filling up water supplies out of the way early.
  • Be Prepared - Most importantly, be prepared. If you are going out in the sun make sure you carry sunscreen, sunglasses, insect repellent and even a light jacket to contend with the unpredictable changes.
  • Insulate - Insulation works not only in the cold to help keep you warm but also in the heat to help keep you cool. This is why Crua’s range of insulated tents are truly all-season products.
