trip ideas.... for December

OK...need some ideas....and with this many campers I'm sure you all have been everywhere. Ill have 6 days in December... I live in DFW and want to go somewhere scenic...and drive up to 8hrs away... So far Carlsbad Caverns is coming to the top of the list.. Wanted Big Bend but that is just too far to lose 2 days driving time. Mountains would be nice but I know I would need to go more that 8hrs to see any.


- partial to full hookups
- 30' TT access
- pet friendly
- if only water at site/ generator allowed??

Thanks in advance for any ideas.....

Big Bend is only 75 miles farther from Dallas; 570 miles vs. 495 to Carlsbad Caverns. Having visited both parks numerous times, I personally prefer Big Bend due to its vast diversity, however both are worth the drive.

Most answers depend on what you want to do at your destination. Big Bend is great for hiking and driving to the sights in and around. Very remote. But if you have small kids you might be looking for something all together different. Do check out Texas state parks, they are often full of things to do and see. I always like Garner State park in the winter. The old section down by the Frio river is beautiful. Best of luck.

Did you see the Marfa lights? My son and I went there about 20 years ago and saw them. Just love west Texas. I even love the drive thru all that nothing just to get there.

I think how many lights you see has to do with how many wobbly pops you have.....

But the Star Party at the observatory was great.

At Sul Ross in Alpine, they have a really nice museum of the local area history. And the Fort is good as well. And the State Park at Balmorhea is good.
