This South Texas State Park Is A Hidden Gem Perfect For Adventuring

Underappreciating a state park is the last thing you want to do this summer. There are too many hidden gems within them to ignore! Some state parks are more common destinations than others, but that just means more room for you to move around and explore. Choke Canyon State Park in Calliham, Texas is one of these places and the perfect spot to camp out this summer!

Camping is just as fun as it was when we were kids, trust us! Modern day technology has arguably made it even better, with advanced plumbing and all. Whether you're camping with a significant other or with your friends, sitting around a campfire (yes, even on the hot summer nights) will leave you with the best memories. State parks are made for telling ghost stories! 

Choke Canyon is right on South Shore, which is perfect for boating and fishing! While you're packing up your sleeping bag, make sure to grab your favorite bikini as well. Boat pics for your Instagram don't come around often, and when the sun sets on Choke Canyon you'll definitely want that in your background. Or just simply to enjoy with your eyes.

If you haven't heard of geocaching before, well now you have. It's one of the most entertaining activities that involves exploring the outdoors and stumbling upon hidden treasures other people have left behind. Choke Canyon is known for this! Who knows what you'll find, it's kind of like Pokemon Go only you're "caching"... instead of catching, ha-ha. 

Choke Canyon is the perfect place to bring your friends or special someone this summer, and just far enough off the grid to really escape the rest of the world.
