Ha! This old Texas boy moved your thread to the Central USA section. We have East Texas and West Texas and Central Texas ---- but "most" of the state is in the Central Time Zone.


No chastisement here, however, since you didn't recommend a campground I frequent!

Parkside Riverview was the very first campground we went to after we bought our first RV back in 2005. It was awesome then. Glad to see it is still doing well. Here is a picture of our setup...backed right up to the river, though we had to walk down the road a bit to get to it. It was a beautiful site. We really do want to get back there one day.

Yes we are! The only problem is apparently we were lied /misinformed when watching Western Cowboy TV Shows as a Kid? The Fourms claims the "Wild Wild West "as we all knew it is located in the "Central USA"! Youroo! !

Lol.

I grew up in Nebraska. Imagine my surprise, when I found out Ohio Indiana and Illinois, were the Midwest. I always considered them the back porch of the East coast.
The “West” started at the Rockies.

As far as camping in Texas, Pedernales Falls by Johnson City, is a pretty place. We spent 3 days there on our way back from NM a couple of years ago. W/E on site. The bathrooms were decent. There’s a dump station on the way out. Nice hiking trails.

I think historically, it is. So much about the west pre 1900, began at its banks. I never got east of the mighty Miss, until well into my 20’s

A simple question why? Do you move statements in California a lot bigger state to northern , central and southern, my guess is NO. Is it the time zones? I think Texas has one only Central.

If you look at the sub-forums, the ones for the US are divided up into three sections that roughly mirror our time zones, with Pacific and Mountain being combined into one. Texas happens to be listed in the Central.

We could have a sub-forum for each state or for each section of each state, but that would get way too confusing.

Actually Texas has 2 time zones. The vast majority of the state (all but two counties) is in the central time zone, however, just west of Van Horn you enter the mountain time zone.

We use to make this trip from North Texas to El Paso when my son was stationed at Fort Bliss. We camped a lot at Hueco Tanks SP and also at Franklin Mountain SP.

It is!

One of the most diverse if not ‘the’ most diverse states in the US.

Came in on 84 from Clovis NM yesterday. Spent the night at Brownwood Lake State Park(a nice place BTW). Waltzed across Texas today, and we’re in the Piney Woods near Jasper.

Isn't waltzing across Texas some kinda of Cowboy Song? Everyone becomes a cowboy or girl, (before I get sued) happens when you cross the state line?

"... there are thirteen states that are divided into two time zones." --- including Indiana.

It’s an acquired taste.
I’ve driven a lot of miles in Texas over the years. I worked a job in the Midland/ Odessa area one summer a lot of years ago.
I have family north of Houston, although they’re transplants and stick out a bit in the crowd.
Where I grew up in Nebraska, I was further west then most of Texas.
I’ve always liked the western part of the state more.
Leaving the D/FW area at night and cresting Ranger Hill on 20, always seemed like I was leaving the rest of the world behind.
My wife and I got Married in Corpus Christi, and had a short Honeymoon in Port Aransas. We stayed at the Tarpon Inn. An old place with lots of history.

There's a old saying in Texas that "Fort worth is where the west begins and Dallas is where the East peters out"
