Texas GeoCampers

@

Brazos Bend State Park

 

We are a group of geocachers who hold regular events touring the great State Parks of Texas!  Our group will camp in a different Texas State Park several times a year.  For this event, we will be camping inside of Brazos Bend State Park, and we have reserved a full service campsite for the weekend.  Depending on the month there will be activities and ranger-led events, allowing us to experience all that Texas has to offer!  This Geocampers event is planned for the weekend of June 1st, however some camping geocachers will begin arriving on the 31st of May to take full advantage of the weekend's camping and caching opportunities! You don't have to camp to attend, but camping is highly encouraged!

Group Camp Info

*PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PARK!* We have the camp reserved, and we will collect the camping fees.  You may register with us HERE for $25 per family for two days of camping (Friday and Saturday). Parking is available nearby. This is a primitive style camping with no electricity. Please pack accordingly. There is running water and a comfort station at the site. Hammock campers, there will be plenty of trees available for you, just bring your equipment.

NOTE:
Please log a "Will Attend" letting us know how many are attending. If you are planning to camp with us, please include how many are in your group. If you have any other questions, feel free to email us at texasgeocampers@gmail.com.

 If you would rather camp on your own that doesn't mean you can't join in the fun.   See this HERE for more camping information and more information on how to make those reservations. This may be tough as reservations to this park are extremly difficult to come by.  You may have better luck at a nearby RV park.  

You will need the normal expected camping gear, folding chairs, food, beverages, flashlights, and other items you require. There is a $6 gate fee per person if you don't have a park pass to enter any State Park. Thanks for your participation and assisting us support our great Texas State Parks and Historic Sites through camping and geocaching.​ Be sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter You can also get the most information on and register for all of our upcoming and planned events at  our website!
