We like Kerrville for short trips, might find an openeing there! Its alot of fun getting a new RV and setting it up and learning about all the bells and whistles!
Great tips on Matagorda Bay and Kerrville. Thanks much; I wrote 'em down... So much to see; now to just get away and do it!!

Yeah, that's one thing you'll find out as you try to get out more. On holiday weekends, state parks fill up way in advance. I don't know why, but it's crazy. Especially if you want full hook-ups.

Speaking of state parks, you should also try to hit Garner State Park sometime. The Frio River is beautiful out there. And the bat cave at Concan is an awesome sight with the Mexican Freetail Bats all coming out at sunset.

Another great location added to the list on the list. Thanks Ed.

Haven't been out there in more than 20 years... Wonder if I can still swing off that rope into the Frio without someone having to jump in to bail the ole guy out?

We camped at Kerrville a couple of weeks ago and had a blast. We got there on a Wednesday and had the whole park to ourselves for a couple days! So peaceful and deer everywhere.

We do love Garner! The river is beautiful there. We went 2 years ago and had a great time. Have any of yall been to Shiner? There are RV spots in the city park there that have electric and water. There is also a dump station. Not very many people know about it and weve been the only people there when weve gone. There are alot of historical places around there and then theres the brewery tour you can do.

Another added to the list! That's not all that far from us and it seems like it could be a nice weekend getaway...

Appears the key is to take advantage of weekdays... We're about 45 minutes from Fredricksburg and hope to put in there sometime next month.

Then maybe over to Kerrville/Comfort to see how the 3:15 rear does on the big hills before we consider the mountains next year...

DW and I love Fredericksburg and try to go there as often as we can. That's another nice thing about Kerrville is that you're only 30 minutes away from Frederickburg and Bandera. Anyway, good luck and good camping!
