Camping is a shared hobby among people who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. We usually camp on weekends within a few hours of Austin, although we occasionally go on extended trips to destinations outside Central Texas. We camp at state parks, state natural areas (less developed than parks), national parks, and some private parks (Krause Springs for example). Our group comprises singles, couples, and families, of all ages, and of all camping experience levels. Types of trips can range from car camping with water and electricity to primitive canoe or backpacking trips.
We use the message board for all communication rather than an email list. If you get the urge to pitch a tent and there's nothing on the calendar, you can plan unofficial trips with other members. You can ask questions and share advice. You can even share your favorite camp recipe, post a public non-commercial announcement, and sell or trade gear. Most importantly, we use the forum to plan our events and make sure you understand our group policies.
If you have a great idea for a camping trip, please post use the suggestion link to let us know. If there is interest, we will make concrete plans and post the event on the calendar so people can RSVP.
