Fall Foilage

Hola amigos! I live in South Texas, which has no seasons. I want to experience the royal splender of the fall foilage. I need suggestions on places to camp within 1000 miles or so of Corpus Christi to see the changing colors of the leaves. I travel with my puppy so I don't require fancy RV resorts. I do prefer hookups because I don't have a generator. Thanks!

There is not much in the way of fall foilage within 1,000 miles of Corpus Christi. You could try AK or MO in late October.

A bit further that you want to go , Try Michigan,s West side of the state or the UP for fall colors. Cant be beat. Thats where we are headed , leaving from Florida in about a month. Will hang out for 3 weeks or so and then start a treck back south.

I'll put a plug in for Branson Mo in the fall. There is a lot to see and do there. If you enjoy the shows that is a plus. Silver Dollar City was always nice. I haven't been to Silver Dollar City in years, but we go to Branson one to two times a year and will be going back in late Oct.
Anytime from early Oct. until early Nov should be a good time.
There are lots of camp grounds around Branson, and Hotel and Motels are reasonable priced.

Thanks for the suggestions to see the fall colors. I have travelled as far as the Northeast corner of Oklahoma and believe I can make it to Missouri. Branson sounds interesting and perhaps I can catch some shows. I am really interested though in the landscape and freshwater fishing. Rock on!

There's very little that's more scenic than Northern Arkansas in the fall. The White River is home to world record rainbow and brown trout. Greers Ferry Lake, about 35 miles north of my house, is home to the world record walleye. Branson is nice enough.......but you don't have to go to Branson to see the Ozarks. Arkansas has Beaver Lake, Bull Shoals Lake, Norfork Lake, rivers for fishing, rivers for kayaks, creeks, and about a billion camp sites. To get there from Texas, you can take the backroads north from Texarkana and see Lake Ouachita, Degray, Greeson, Dierks, DeQueen, and Queen Wilhelmena state park on the way, or stop and mine for free diamonds!!!.......through the Ouachita Mountains headed to the Ozarks.

Thanks for the offer but I can't drive to Michigan. But perhaps I can take a Greyhound and pitch a tent in your yard, and see a Michigan college football game with you.
