Howdy and welcome David!

I've not spent much time in TX but enjoyed the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area north of Amarillo. This is more of a dry camping type place than a resort with full hookups.

Welcome, David, to IRV2. Log onto "RV Park Reviews" and select any city in Texas. You will get a lot of information there, along with other RV'ers opinions of the camps.

That's a pretty broad question, but I live in the Texas Hill Country. It is especially nice this time of year. Some of our State Parks have facilities to accommodate MH's. The sites are usually much larger with some separation and privacy. If you narrow the search a little, you can get more specific answers.

Welcome to the forum. We had a lot of flooding this year and it damaged some of the state parks pretty badly. Be sure to call ahead as some of them won't be repaired for a while. That probably goes for the private campgrounds as well.

Hello and welcome!!

One of our favorite parks is Garner State Park, Southwest of San Antonio. The park is on the Frio river, has nice spaces for large motorhomes, clean facilities. Wildlife is abundant there too. Our favorite time to camp there is in the fall. School is in and it's not crowded.. There lots of private rv parks all over the state that are really nice!!

Good luck!!

We like the Galvestion area (Jamaica Beach) and the Corpus Christi area (Port Aransas + Pioneer RV Park). We have friends that like the Brownsville Tx area and the surrounding towns. I agree with checking RVPARKREVIEWS.COM for additional information.

Spent a three nights this summer at the Riverbend RV Park Riverbend RV Park & Campground | Luling, TX in Luling, Texas. It wasn't fancy but a nice clean place. If you like Texas Barbecue Luling is at the beginning of the Texas Barbecue trail. City Market in Luling is one BBQ place to stop at and then you are only 20 miles to Lockhart where you have Smitty's Market , Black's Barbecue and Kreuz Market all have great Texas BBQ. Also you are 50 miles to San Antonio or Austin. We took a quick run to San Antonio for a day trip.

Congrats on achieving this new chapter in your life. Texas has a wide variety of terrain, eco systems, foliage, tourist attractions, history, and other points of interest. As others have posted, if you provide more detail as to what your interests are such as preferred climate, beach, forest, or lakes & rivers, etc. some of the locals will share their favorite spots. Be safe, have fun, and enjoy your travels.
