Best Tent Camping: Tennessee, 2nd edition
Johnny Molloy


Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

In West Tennessee, you can explore the surprisingly hilly terrain of Big Hill Pond, on the Mississippi border, or the bluffs and riverine forests of Meeman-Shelby State Park. Middle Tennessee is the land of unique cedar glades where unusual plants and animals still thrive and where the water falls from the western Cumberland Plateau. This is also lake country, where reservoirs built to prevent disastrous flooding now are recreation destinations, such as Center Hill and Percy Priest Lake. East Tennessee has the highest of the high, including the crest of the Appalachians, where elevations in the Smoky Mountains exceed 6,000 feet. The campgrounds in the Cumberland Mountains offer rock bluffs overlooking gorges cut by water and time, and unique arches and caves. Within this book there are enough destinations to keep a tent camper busy for years, exploring the scenic natural beauty found within the Volunteer State.

Well-traveled outdoor writer and native Tennessean Johnny Molloy methodically set forth into his home state, searching for campgrounds to include in this new edition. Having camped the state for decades, Molloy, with over 50 outdoor guides to his credit, used his wealth of experience and scoured the entirety of Tennessee -- choosing only the most pristine campgrounds that included not only a great locale for tent campers but with fun outdoors activities nearby, most as close as your tent door.

Included in this book is a rating system for the Southern Appalachian’s 50 best tent campgrounds. Certain campground attributes -- beauty, site privacy, site spaciousness, quiet, security, and cleanliness/upkeep -- are ranked using a star system.

Best Tent Camping: Texas, 2nd edition
Wendel Withrow


From the High Plains of the Panhandle to the tropics of the south, Texas is great for car camping weekends.

In a modern world often dominated by big cities, big concrete, and little computer screens, Best Tent Camping: Texas by Wendel Withrow is not only a guidebook, but it's also an escape manual for all nature lovers who dare to dream of a different existence. This book will help the reader navigate the back roads of Texas to find those special locales that will give the overworked, overstressed city dweller 50 special places to recharge his or her head, heart, and soul.

This fully updated and now full color guidebook provides detailed campground maps, key information (such as facility details, fees, restrictions), driving directions, a rating system (subjective, of course), and, most importantly, firsthand information about which sites provide the best tent camping experience to avoid the R.V. scene as much as possible. To help make the perfect campground easy to find, the guide is divided into the major geographical areas of Texas and provides cross-referencing for parks that emphasize certain activities.

Traveling thousands of miles across the huge expanse of Texas, Wendel visited each campground to report up-to-date and accurate information for the next tent camper who is looking for that special place of solitude and comfort. Based on more than 30 years of following the little-known back roads of Texas, the individual park and site descriptions will give you a head start on where to put down those tent stakes for a night or a week (if you are lucky enough to really slow down the hectic pace that most of us seem forced to keep). The book also contains local history, local attractions, camping tips, and recommended reading material to enhance your knowledge of the area or expand your understanding of Texas's natural features.
