Sam Houston National Forest, Texas

We haven’t posted in a few days because we were camped at Cagle Recreation Area in the National Forests and Grasslands of Texas. This is a great place for fishermen! We camped within view of Lake Conroe, just 45 minutes north of Houston. But, no wifi and limited cell service, hence no blog reports till now.

Cagle has a boat ramp, hiking trails, and 47 full service camp sites nestled among the pine trees of the national forest. Campsites with water and electricity cost $20 per night. The place was completely filled with campers on the weekend, so we were happy we had made reservations. For those of you towing Bass Boats, many sites have parking room for both boat and tent or RV/ trailer.


We camped there Saturday through Monday and enjoyed lots of bird watching and hiking. Yesterday we got up early and managed to be on the road headed for San Angelo, Texas by 6:00 a.m. It was a good thing we travelled early, as the wind kicked up in the afternoon, and our vehicle has a high profile and tends to not travel well in a cross wind!
