Casinos to the east and San Antonio out west. Or how about Garner State Park in Concan. 9 hours to the white sand beaches of Destin. I wish I had time off.

How far do you want to go? Maybe Garner State Park?? Haven't been that way in a while. Maybe Dinosaur Park in Glen Rose?? Cooler weather would be good for "walking with the Dinosaurs".

Any particular direction you want to head towards? If you don't want to drive too far...... We have several great state parks over here in the north central and northeast Louisiana area.....as well as a very nice parish park.

1. My favorite park. We're camping there this weekend. If you geocache, there are 23 located here alone:

2. Claiborne is good too, just don't get one of the double pull-thru sites

http://www.crt.state.la.us/parks/ilakeclai.aspx

3. Lincoln Parish Park is nice, with full hookups including sewer. It is close to town, and has nationally recognized mtn bike trails if you like that.

Also, are you looking for area things to do, or plan to stay near the camper to just relax?

Thanks for all the responses... Up until two weeks ago my wife was in the hospital for 90 days with 47 in ICU.... So - we're just looking for a place that won't take hrs to get there (more than 8-10hrs); we love woods, lakes, rivers, etc... Just somewhere we can sit out with our dogs and chill... Maybe sit around a fire at night....

Wherever you decide to go, you should make reservations soon. Thanksgiving week books early everywhere! Where are you in East Texas?
