We just checked out McKinney Falls SP below Austin. BEAUTIFUL trails and creek side hiking. Sites were large and nice with room for tent as well. 9-21 had 50amp and the rest had 30amp with full hookups. Nice bathrooms and showers. There are plenty of things to do in the area. $24 a night. We have a 32 fifth wheel and they said the sites only fit 30 but we easily could fit in most of the sites if we unhooked. I think they were referring to coaches over 30 feet. We were about 2 hours south in San Antonio at the world skeet shooting Championship and just drove up to McKinney to Check it out for future. You can swim and play in the waterfalls there which was a bonus in the Texas heat.

We live about 20 miles from Tyler SP. Great park, nice sites, lake, hiking biking trails. First Saturday of every month, a group of Dutch oven cookers come and
Serve lunch to any and all.

Hmm, think well need to add this to our "not far from home trips" that we like to take on a long weekend. Especially like the Dutch Oven night, sounds like a couple of "vacation pounds" just waiting to happen.

I agree coderider. I spent a lot of time in my late teens in the Tyler area and really like it. Especially the Lake Palestine area. Tyler SP has been on our list and we'll get to it eventually. Maybe sooner now that we see the Dutch Oven night! And if the first Saturday of the month also coincides with the first Monday, you can head over to Canton and walk off the Dutch Oven affects at Trade Days there.

This is straying from the subject a little but I have a question. Is this Huntsville State Park near the infamous Huntsville prison in TX?

One and the same, yessir Hob. However, the prison is up the road a few miles (about 10 or so). The prison is on the north side of Huntsville, and the park is on the south side. And you have Big Sam (statue of Sam Houston) to watch over you as well.

The reason I said infamous is because the people in this silly state (IL) don't believe in killing those that deserve it.

Lunch works too. An opportunity to real end with new friends is always a great time.
