A little over 40 miles north of Dallas lies the historic town of Princeton, TX. When the town was first founded, the Wilson brothers who owned the property were informed that their surname was already in use by another town. This allowed them to choose the name of a local promoter in town named Prince Dowlin, hence the name Princeton. Even more impressive from a historical standpoint is the fact that during World War II, German POWs were kept nearby on farming contracts. This allowed them to exchange their time and efforts for outdoor living instead of being kept in a prison cell.

Princeton sits north of Lavon Lake, a popular destination for water recreation. The city is near many big cities, so when you rent an RV here, you can also get involved in some urban explorations. Although it's mostly a farm community, there's no end to the variety of landscapes found in and around Princeton. A trip here will satisfy any outdoor enthusiast, so book an RV in Princeton and head on down.
