In the northeast corner of Texas, just south of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, is the town of Coolidge. Surrounded by lakes and open grasslands, Coolidge is a quintessential small Texas town. You can explore the main street (in this case, Bell Street), head out to a nearby lake, and head into the big city all in one day. No matter what you are hoping to get out of your North Texas adventure, you are sure to find it when you rent an RV in Coolidge.
When you book an RV in Limestone County, you open up a world just waiting to be explored. Whether you’re looking to catch some sun or catch some fish, you are sure to enjoy your North Texas adventure.
Just a short drive south of Coolidge is the Fort Parker State Park in Mexia. With several different trail options leading you through the forest and a marked out kayak/canoe trail leading you through the lake and Navasota River, there is so much to explore in this hidden gem of a park. You can hike along the dramatic, classic Texas limestone bluffs, get a relatively close view of a blue heron nesting ground, and also visit a cemetery of the earliest settlers to Limestone County. You can also take advantage of plenty of fishing options, as well as swimming locations if you’d rather just spend some time enjoying the lake.
On the southern edge of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area is the Cedar Hill State Park in Cedar Hill. At this park, you can see three Texas environments blur into one: the limestone hills of the Hill Country, the prairie land of North Texas, and the lush woods of East Texas. If you enjoy biking, you can head out on the DORBA Trail, a challenging trail designed for hikers and bikers that covers the entire southern third of the park. You can do three, eight, or 12 miles of this trail and treat yourself to stunning views of Joe Pool Lake as well as feel yourself zoom through the trees and grasslands.
Named after the famed war hero himself, the Davy Crockett National Forest near Lufkin makes for a wonderful day trip with the Coolidge campervan rental. This towering pine forest is the classic East Texas wilderness destination. At roughly 160,000 acres of land, Davy Crockett beckons wilderness explorers to head out on the miles upon miles of trails, including the 20-mile Four C National Recreation Trail. You can also enjoy Ratcliff Lake and get yourself a kayak or canoe and explore the tranquil lake from the water.

Just south of town is the Confederate Reunion Grounds. This park was once used by Confederate soldiers and their families as a meeting place after the Civil War, as a way to stay connected and continue to support each other while the South recovered. Today, you can see a cannon from the Civil War and a few historic buildings. Re-enactors occasionally stage events or educational performances to teach locals and visitors about the Civil War.
If you have a need for speed, then head to the Prairie Hill Dragway. You can watch souped-up cars race against each other or even put your tires to the pavement yourself. Sometimes you can even meet the racers and learn about what they do to prepare their cars.
Traveling to Texas in the summer? Head over to BSR Cable Park near Waco to beat that infamous Texas heat. Here, you can relax in the lazy river, challenge yourself to some surfing in the wave pool, or head down the giant waterslide that launches you into the air before landing you in the pool.
