Looking for a park 3-4 hours from DFW

Been looking for a couple weeks now for a park to take the kids on spring break. Only want to go no more than 4 hours from DFW. Looked at everything from San Antonio to Oklahoma and Arkansas. Just want something in the woods with lots of shade and full hookups. I know that's a lot to ask but I am sure they are out there. Any advice??

While visiting our son in 2009 in San Antonio, he took us to Paradise Canyon in Rio Medina which is about 4.5 hours from you. It's a great place for the kids to swim and a beautiful area. Their web site says rv's are welcome and I do remember seeing some there when we went. Here is a picture I found and a link to some more.

Left out some info....might be a little too cold for swimming in early March. Fishing would be cool if its like a stocked pond or something. Kids really get a kick out of that the couple times we have done it. Additionally we are not looking to really get out and do a lot of things. More just relaxing and getting to know our new RV on the maiden voyage.

Central Texas parks

Big Chief in Burnet is nice park with good fishing. Inks Lake State Park is also good. Check out Valley of the Eagles while there.

Well if you want warm weather your going to have to come down to the Rio Grande Valley lots here 70* to 80* close to South Padre Island but its about 7 to 8 hours but worth the trip. Check with Weslaco Chamber of Commerce for RV parks

I found that some of the Texas State Parks actually have some pull thru full hookup sites. They call the "FULL HOOK-UP PREMIUM". Dangerfield State Park down in the East Texas woods.
