2015 Discover Texas Tour

We are planning a trip to Texas this coming winter (Feb. - Apr.), our 2015 Discover Texas tour. We will be driving a 39' Newmar DSDP with towed vehicle. We are from MN and will be driving S (of course), most likely to SW TX and then tour the rest of the grand State. We like to stay in State or National parks when possible.

We are seeking any recommendations of parks (State, Nat'l, County, private etc.) in the state, along with favorite places and sites.

Thanks and safe travels to ALL!

There is a bit of a thread already started on a similar subject you might want to join in there. Hope you find our home state as diverse, friendly and grand as we do.

Drive safely-Steve

Buy the TX state park pass for $70. It will give you free admission to all the state parks and 4, 1/2 price camping for the second night. TX has a lot of very nice ST Parks.

Big Bend National Park.
Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
Both are quite amazing and not to be missed.

Having lived in Texas for over 25 years we finally made it to the Palo Duro canyon state park. What an absolutely amazing place! Camping on the canyon floor is an experience and the state is doing an exceptional job keeping the place great for hikers, bikers, campers, equestrians. I was very, very impressed

visit the town of Fredericksburg, Tx. Great shopping, craft beers, winery, and the Museum of the Second World War in the Pacific. They have an outdoor reenactment including flame throwers! Nice campground on the outskirts of town. You would be about 60 miles from Austin, near LBJ ranch, etc ENJOY

X 2 on the Texas park pass. You can go on line and make reservations which in many cases is advisable. Many very nice state parks and if you don't already have one get the Sr pass for the natl. parks.....if eligible. We also like some of the corps of engineer lake campgrounds and so far no problems with a 40'.

If you are planning on spending any time in the DFW metro area, Cedar Hill State Park would probably be your best choice for a state park.

galveston Island state park (bay or ocean side)
NASA at the Johnson space center, reserve now for the level 9 tour....it will knock your socks off
its 90.00 per person but well worth the 6 hours and free meal



schulenburg texas has the painted churches...go to schulenburg chamber of commerce for maps and guided tours of you want one.
most of these churches are from the late 1800's,
take a whole day to see them all

over near fredricksburg...visit boerne for some great german food at the little gretel restaurant
