Amistad National Recreation Area

This is the place to go if you want to camp in true solitude. This reservoir has shores in both the USA and Mexico so bring your passport if you plan on paddling across the border. With more than 65,000 surface acres Amistad is a haven for fishermen and water sports enthusiasts, but come night time the place is empty. Pitch your tent anywhere along the 547 miles of shoreline and enjoy complete isolation.
