middle of week camping trip to Lake Bob Sandlin state park. Great park we had the whole camping loop to ourself Weds and Thrusday. The slot we were in was about 20 yards from the lake with a nice path right down to the lake to go fishing. Very quiet could not even hear any road noise most of the time. Lots of old growth trees give plenty of shade and all the privacy you could wish. Good hiking trails, park was very well maintained, fishing at the lake and they also have a small trout pond for the kids to fish at. Lots of wild life had deer come within 20 ft of the camper while going to the lake for water. will post pictures later.

Caldwell is a pretty nic zoo for a town the size of Tyler.

Just north of the state park a few miles is a tiger refuge place.
Worth the time. Very well done.

If you make it down to the Hill Country, Inks Lake State Park is really nice.

But get reservations in advance! It is the second most popular park in Texas, after Garner. If you do go to Inks, be sure to stop at nearby Longhorn Caverns State Park, too! (And keep an eye to the left of the road for the big castle on the way to the caverns. Seriously)

Yes, reservations are a must at Inks but it is a really nice park and pretty lake (constant level). Very pretty area and lots of spacious sights with many of them backing up to the lake. I personally haven't visited Longhorn Caverns....I need to do that.

Caprock Canyon State Park. huge park with several hiking trails, a small lake for swimming or fishing, lots of wild life for viewing including a herd of wild southern plains Bison.

We arrived Monday with the temps near 100, and very windy with gusts up to 30 miles. Monday night Tuesday morning rain heavy to light lasted till around 9am. Cool temp around 66 never got above the mid 90's The bison herd came right down to the lake within a few feet of the road. Afternoon hike along the canyon rim saw a small herd of mule dear grazing on the canyon wall.

Big prairie dog colony never the rest/shower rooms lots of fun to watch.

Tuesday night Wed. morning more rain light this time lasting till 10 or so. again temp mid 60s in the morning to mid 80s .

Temp rest of week never got over the low 90's managed to hike three of the trails and clime to the top of the canyon rim, great view.

Monday thru Weds only a couple of other campers in the park, Thursday the park started to fill for the fourth but never felt crowned.
