Where to go! Where to go!

My DW and I are wanting to take our dogs, and go somewhere nice and secluded for a week in the spring or early summer. We want to travel about 500-600 miles from Midland Texas. Maybe out in the woods somewhere at a National Park or something similar. Just a nice peaceful outing. Boondocking or hook ups, either one.
Any suggestions?

We very much enjoyed our visit to Palo Duro State Park, TX. Not sure of the distance.

Its not that far, but there are a number of great state parks in the hill country around Kerrville and Fredricksburg. Guadalupe, Lost Maples and Pedernales just to name a few. Camp Huaco Springs near New Braunfels is not a state park but it is right on the Guadalupe river.

Ruidoso is a nice place that time of year.

If you are traveling with dogs you should check the rules at National Parks before you book there. The NPS is not particularly dog friendly. Many of the National Parks do not allow dogs, even leashed, on trails in the park. The Texas State Park system has so many choices it shouldn't be too hard to find someplace to go.

Santa Fe. Black Canyon. About 8500 or so feet. Lovely in the summer. Nice hiking trail right from the park. Great for dogs. Another series of longer trails across the street. Water, dump station. Town is only about 15 minutes yet at the park, you are in ponderosa pine.

Yes, that is a great destination, though I expect it is under a foot of snow this morning. The only drawback is that I had to drive the 40' MH through the two lane streets of old Santa Fe to get to the highway up to the park. It is amazing to go from the desert to the pine forest in only 15 miles. We stayed at the Hyde state park.

If it is within your driving distance try Petit Jean Mountain State Park in Arkansas. It has miles of really scenic hiking trails. It is in the Ozark Mountains and the drive to the Park is very pretty. It has cell phone service but Arkansas State Parks do not have wifi available. They have a lodge about a mile from the park that you can go to the lobby and have free use of wifi there. The Park seems to be pretty popular with people from Texas I see a lot of Texas license plates there when I go. The park is the oldest park in Arkansas but they have done a great job of updating the facility and keeping it up. If you are going there in the spring or summer make sure to get a reservation early it is a very popular park.
