San Antonio to Lajitas Texas

We're headed from San Antonio. to Maverick RV Park in Lajitias, Texas soon.

Any comments on using I-10 or US 90 appreciated. Time nor mileage is much of an issue for us.

I-10/67/118 via Fort Stockton/Alpine is 472 miles.


90 to Marathon & 385 is 437 miles.


We enjoy the 90 drive rather than an interstate.

Hwy 90 always gets my vote! It's a good ride and not nearly as boring as 10.

If time is not a factor, 90 for sure. There's no route faster than I-10, nor as boring. I will be headed up I-10 in a few weeks. Time is a factor for me.

We are leaving on 3/10 to do the same and we are using I-10 to Fort Stockton. I have used Hwy 90 and there is a lot to see but I think 10 is easer! But it is worth going to see everything. We like the RV park in Fort Stockton. Has a restaurant inside the park and they are very nice.

Will be taking that route next month coming from San Antonio, but stopping at Del Rio before arriving at Big Bend area, so 90 for us...

Most definitely Hwy 90 thru Del Rio. If you have time you can stop at Seminole Canyon State Park. Guided walk down to the Pecos River and see the early Indian petroglyphs. Has to be dry for the guided tour. Then on to Langtry for Judge Roy Bean's Law West of the Pecos. Then to Marathon or Alpine to drop south to Big Bend and Lajitas. Both Marathon and Alpine and Big Bend have sights to see. Enjoy.

We were just at Maverick in February and came up to 90 from Eagle Pass and then over to Alpine and south. As a side note, they have a brand new campground at the Lucky Eagle casino in Eagle Pass. It's pretty nice and only $15 a night. We returned north through Alpine and up to Stockton and then east on I 10. Actually we enjoyed going different routes and both are an easy drive.

X2 on Stockton RV Park. Our overnight site was a little dusty as we were next to the road, but breakfast at the little cafe was superb!!

Doesn't mean you have to go 80 mph .... We will be going to Maverick from Marble Falls, TX to Fort Stockton and then down. I-10 most of the way.

We just took 90...what a spectacular drive. Took 173 from Kerrville to 90. Nobody on the road, road is decent and spectacular views. Not to mention the sites once down here!

We just did the I-10 route from Spicewood. We did a little different route this trip and stopped at the Caverns of Sonora. All I can say is "magnificent". If you like caverns and are up for a 1-1/2 mile trek, with 150' decline and gain in elevation, then you will be pleased. It's considered by some experts to be the most beautiful and intricate cave in the world. The guide was very knowledgeable. The RV park has water and 50A, and is adequate, but tight. I advise a week night.
