First long trip

Planning our first long trip in December. Heading out to see our son in Round Rock, Texas. Looking for suggestions for campgrounds from the seasoned campers.

We always try state and Federal campgrounds. I'm not sure if where you are coming from so they might not be open that time of the year. Have you gotten you senior access card yet from the federal govt yet. -well worth it

How do you obtain a senior access card from the federal government?

Get them a many national parks. List attached.

You can buy a Senior Pass in person from a participating Federal recreation site or office. See Site Locations that issue the Senior Pass.
You can buy a Senior Pass via mail order from USGS. Mail-order applicants must submit a completed application, proof of residency and age, the $20.00 ($10.00 fee for the Senior Pass, and an additional document processing fee ($10) to obtain a pass through the mail. Once the application package is received the documentation will be verified and a pass, with the pass owner's name pre-printed on it, will be issued to the applicant.

I also suggest checking out the Corps of Engineers Parks. They usually don't have sewer hook-ups, but you can stay, with the National Senior Pass referred to above, for 14 days at half-price (usually about $9). Texas has some awesome ones!

Also, if you can stay weekly or even monthly, campground rates are cheaper. Ask. We have stayed 5 days at the weekly rate for less than the daily rate for 5 days, so you have the option of leaving early. Check the RV parks reviewing forums for some insight into the parks.
