One thing about South Texas is that all the oil field guys will be down there.

Thanks! I'm actually getting ideas now, but our trip is 2015 (ish). Would it be better to head there in April than October? Or will Winter Texans still be there?

You should be able to find a place around the area. Consider the options of all the CG's around SA for say 30-40 miles. Some are half way between SA and Austin. You get to go tour both areas. New Braunfels, Canyon Lake and other areas are full of CG's

Find one that has good reviews for you. We have stayed at Hill Country RV park twice now and would go back again. Nice hall, indoor swimmin' hole, and easy access.

Happy trails.

We have been to Texas, several times and have settled on the Rockport area as our "winter Texan" home. Never have made it to the RGV because we got as far as Rockport and fell in love with the place.

We have never been made to feel so welcome as we do, anytime we get to Texas. The weather is great, the people are friendly and the cost of living is less than most places.

Texans know how to do a BBQ and the Mexican food is second to none. Can't wait to go again!!
