The best kid-friendly camping adventures for Houston families

camping (Jill B. Jarvis)

My son is absolutely certain that we need to go camping… and I am absolutely sure I have no idea where to go around Houston. Fortunately I know a whole bunch of Houston parents that can recommend the best places to go around Houston.

Here are the places YOU recommended. Thank you! (And if you have a recommendation, let me know!)
