In Colorado and Utah there are numerous dispersed camping areas run by the Forest Service and BLM. These are areas without designated campsites, but have a designated area for camping. Some of the nicer ones have a vault toilet or Port-a-Potty, and a water spigot (seasonal) somewhere in the area. I have never heard of any of these having reservations, just first come-first served until the limit is reached.

On-line research will bring up most of these.

You boondocks in Texas this time of year to better pick a site with shade. Cuz it's gonna be hot. Colorado or New Mexico in the mountains would be more comfortable boondocking. IMO

Texas IS NOT a boon docking state in July and August UNLESS you plan on running a generator 24/7..... Temps of high 90's with index of 105+ and add to that really high humidity can make for miserable camping - even in the shade....

That sounds down right cool compared to Death Valley National Park.

Magnolia Beach has boondocking next to the water. Free hot showers. Packed sand makes for solid ground to drive on.
