East Texans can now head to Big Tex Campgrounds in Wheeler, Texas, for camping and outdoor adventures. The new park, owned by Josh and Kaylee Pace, opened earlier this month, according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.
The campgrounds currently offers 17 sites with spacious, shaded, monthly RV spots and an additional 17 more opening over the next several months, according to Kaylee Pace.
Pace said this is just the beginning of what she hopes will be a full outdoor adventure for the whole family.
“This upcoming year we will be building a five-acre swimming pond with a jumping deck, slide and rope swing with a sandy beach,” she said. “We will also be building our 30 additional covered spots with storage for our long-term guests in the back 15 acres of the park.
“In the future, we plan on adding teepees, cabins and Safari Style tents along the swimming pond, as well as primitive camping spots in the woods along the creek,” Pace added. “Once we are fully open we will be offering people the ability to camp like its 1985 again; among trees and nature, the way they want — whether that is in a cabin, in a tent or in a camper.”
