Texas RV parks open up to Houston evacuees

The Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) has identified 41 campgrounds and RV parks with space available for Hurricane Harvey evacuees, including parks in Houston and Galveston.

“Texas park owners have opened their hearts and their parks. They are receiving countless evacuees and helping them while the storm passes and the cleanup begins. It will be a long process but together we will get through it,” said Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of TACO.

Schaeffer encourages hurricane evacuees to check and to locate Texas parks that are far enough away from the coast to escape the brunt of the storm.

Forty-one Texas campgrounds and RV parks already have told TACO they have space available for evacuees. However, people should call the parks in advance to reserve a site. They include:

One of the reasons we have our RV is in case of an emergency just like the one playing out in Texas. God bless all those unfortunate who are living through times tough enough that some of us find it hard to imagine. Those who have RVs are blessed that there are compassionate owners of campgrounds willing to help.

Virgil’s comment is despicable! Shame on him.
My heart and prayers goes out to all those suffering due to the affects of Harvey. We have family and friends who have lost everything in their homes. It will take them months, if not years, to recover.

Lets see what kind of a disaster they leave behind, IF they even leave.

Really, Virgil? I’m tempted to delete your comment, but would be interested to see what our mostly compassionate readers have to say in response. You’d better hope that you never have to go through what all those poor folks in the Texas area are going through. Karma, dude. —Diane at
