Camping near Laredo guide

Hugging the border of Mexico, Laredo is a crossroads on the banks of the Rio Grande. The historic trade town is teeming with Mexican and Spanish colonial vibes. There's no better place to enjoy the unique flavor of Southwest Texas—and the surrounding lakes and plains.

When it comes to setting up camp, Lake Casa Blanca International State Park is a popular choice. Explore miles of hiking trails on the shores of an ancient lake on the Rio Grande Plains. Fossils, jackrabbits, and Texas horned lizards are familiar sights. You might even see a javelina (similar to a wild pig)—be sure to keep your distance.

Want to enjoy the water? Rent fishing gear from the park, and head to the pier to cast a line for bass and crappie. Lake Casa Blanca is also a prime spot for water skiing. You can launch from the boat ramp, but remember to BYOB (bring your own boat).

Even more outdoor adventure awaits at Falcon State Park, roughly an hour and a half drive south. Here you can enjoy hiking trails plus boating and fishing on Lake Falcon. The park's campsites have partial and full hookups, and furry friends are welcome at the campground.

For more camping options in Laredo, check out the host of RV parks, bungalows, and ranches. Wherever you lay your head, you're never far from the historic sites of Laredo. If you have some extra time, step into Mexico, or ride the Rancho Morelos Mountain Bike trail.

Laredo has beautiful camping weather year round, but summer is probably the best time to enjoy the lakes. The sun can get harsh, so don't forget to pack sunscreen and plenty of water. If you plan on fishing, swing by a local sporting goods store to get your state fishing license.
