Travel from NE Ohio to Texas

Will be leaving NE Ohio 12-24 or later depends on the weather.

Have mapped out areas of interest but can not make any reservations for campgrounds as we can not be certain of dates. Weather will dictate that.

Either we travel through Louisville Ky, Memphis, Little Rock then into Dallas, Auston, College Station, San Antonio then into Big Bend Np.

Or travel due south to catch I-10 into Texas.

From there not sure but considering traveling southern New Mexico and Arizona.

Most stays would be a few days max 5 days. Looking for suggestions as to campgrounds and must things to do.

There are tons of things to see and do in San Antonio. The old missions, including the Alamo. are interesting. There is the riverwalk, SeaWorld. Fiesta Texas. Nice golf courses and the zoo ain't to bad. Weather is usually nice that time of year, 60s and 70s.

Another option is to get on the Natchez Trace Parkway around Nashville. It's a much more pleasant drive. There are 3 free campgrounds (no hookups) on the parkway and a couple state parks along the way. You can take it down to I20 and stop at Vicksburg NMP along the way or go all the way to Natchez where you can stay overnight at the visitors center with free water, electric, and dump station.

I just took that route in reverse last month returning from Big Bend.
