We prefer more isolated areas and just want to do some hiking, sightseeing, relaxing and maybe some fishing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

There is a state park on Galveston Island - west off of the Termini San Luis Pass Rd. - they have some unique bird watching and of course fishing. There is a lot to see on Galveston Island as well, Moody Gardens, Moody Mansion, on the east side the fish market. There is a lot of bicycle riding - if you have your own bikes - very enjoyable scenery of the ocean and Island life. Galveston Island is in better shape now than any time I can recall in my past 55 years. My wife and I enjoy taking the top off and touring the island by jeep. I recommend it to anyone who wants a different view. Try Willie Gs off of Wharf Rd for a great seafood or steak meal. Could go on and on but take it slow and easy really enjoy your stay. State park will require reservations but there are several other RV parks that have even better accommodations on the island.

We spent a couple of weeks last March staying in Texas state parks (mostly in central and West TX). We had a great time. We were glad we planned ahead and made reservations in advance. Pretty much the entire state has spring break and and the parks were sometimes full. Advance reservations can be a good idea.

I will 2nd on the Rio Grande Valley. We travel 2 months in the winter but always stop in the valley for some time. Many RV parks to choose from, activities, fresh fruit/vegetables, inexpensive, warmer,etc. The local Hispanic population is welcoming to the Midwesterners that have a huge effect on the economy there.
