  1. Default private land, public camping

    Where can you camp on private land that offer public camping? I want to start one of these places. I am in north Texas, is this a bad idea?

    Default a contradiction

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    If you want to camp on Private lands then your only option is is a private campground. Anything else would be called trespassing, and you're likely to be woken up by a Sheriff or a pissed off land-owner.

    Your other options for camping would be public lands - such as state parks, national forests, etc. Once again, you can't just camp anywhere here. You either need to be in a designated campground or in some national forests, "dispersed camping" where there is no designated site and everything is pack in/pack out, but even there you have to check to see where it is allowed and what the rules and restrictions are.

  3. Default

    I have the land in north Texas, I want to make some places for people to stay and camp for, say, a week at a time. Would this be a good idea, or would anyone like this sort of thing? The land has fishing ponds.

    So basically you want to open a campground?

    That's really way beyond the scope of this forum, and I think you're going to have to go elsewhere to get the advice you are looking for.

    I'm sure people would like this sort of thing (many people enjoy camping), but we don't offer business advice on this forum.
