Known as the "Heart of Texas," Waco is a hub of craft distilleries, rustic shops, and rolling central Texas landscapes. Outdoor recreation waits around every corner—especially on the lakes and rivers. What do you expect when nearly 12 percent of the city is covered by water? Waco has no shortage of fully equipped RV parks that put you at the forefront of local outdoor fun. Try SUP boarding on the Brazos and Bosque Rivers, or hike the cedar trails of 400-acre Cameron Park. Good old Texas glamping is just as abundant. Enjoy a taste of Southern comfort in a cabin, farmhouse, or rail car. Ready to get out on the water? Nestled on the west side of town, Lake Waco is a 79,000-acre hub of local leisure. Have a blast swimming, boating, and fishing. (Catfish and crappie are notoriously easy to hook.) The lake also has four year-round public campgrounds with RV and tent camping. Airport Park is a favorite campground on the north shore while Midway Park hugs the east shore. Once you make camp in a lake-view site, launch your watercraft from the public boat ramps. Having trouble finding a campsite? Check out nearby Lake Whitney State Park. When camping in Waco, TX, get ready to brave some high temps. Summers here are scorching, and even winter days have been known to reach 90 F. Pack plenty of drinking water, and plan on spending your days on the cool lakes or Brazos River.
