Texas campgrounds are open again


Restrictions on camping that had been in place here in Texas are over, and Texas Kampgrounds of America, Inc. (KOA) says that 26 of its campgrounds are now open to camping.

There will be some guidelines if you go. You will have to wear a wristband. And social distancing guidelines will be in place, too.

“Locations are adhering to guidelines and recommendations from local health organizations and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while providing an easy, affordable way to get away from it all whether you travel in an RV or prefer a Deluxe Cabin with a private bathroom,” according to the KOA press release. “In addition, KOA has worked to provide tools for their campground locations to aid in best serving guests in light of COVID-19.”

According to the press release, research performed by KOA found that more than 40 percent of campers still want to take planned camping trips, 47 percent were going to replace other trips with camping and 29 percent plan to make camping their first trip when restrictions are lessened.

“Our locally owned and operated campgrounds are excited and ready to do what they do best, share the great outdoors with everyone,” KOA CEO and President Toby O’Rourke stated in a press release. “We’re working diligently with all our locations to put the proper protocols in place to ensure the welfare of our staff and our campers.”
