Hot in Texas

This is our first summer with our motor home. We live in the DFW area and want to know where we could go while it's HOT. I still work, so we are looking for a 2 or 3 day trips. Any suggestions would be great.

thanks mark

Don't come to South Texas right now. Look at how hot it is.

Ruidoso, NM is the closest area with high enough elevation to get some relief from the heat. We're heading there late next week.

I second New Mexico. Several areas there with enough elevation to get you out of the heat. There's Ruidoso in the Southeast and Red River (up by Taos) in the North. We just spent 2 months in NM and the higher elevations are lovely.

Yep, must be REAL hot in the "BIG" state of Texas...there are lots of 'em up here in 'North Texas' to escape the heat down south. What part of Texas, you ask?....Fairbanks! Bob

I'm sorry that I can not help you with 3 day trips. I'm a Gulf Coast Texan, and for the past couple months we have been in the north. This week in Michigan. It is 10 p.m. right now in Muskegon with temperature at 66 degrees. I hear it might make it to 80 this weekend.

Sorry! Retire!

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I'm thinking nothing in New Mexico is a 2-3 day trip for someone in the DFW area. You will need more time to enjoy our high country, to make it worthwile. I live in Albuquerque and Ruidoso is 4 hours away as is southern Colorado. I just wish it would rain, I can't breathe with half the state on fire! Btw it's been 100 here for the last week.

I'm afraid you are out of luck. We live a bit north of you...closest place is NM or CO.

We live in DFW and have been camping for years. You are not going to avoid the heat on a 3 day weekend, but there are some great state and COE parks in the area. Our favorite is Daingerfield in the piney woods. They have been closed for a year for a facelift and just opened this weekend.

Another is Whitney State Park down near Waco. There's Mineral Wells and Hickory Creek COE park. All of them have great lakes to sit in all day.

Have fun!

I agree with mrschwarz, those parks are great. You also have Cedar Hill SP near Cedar Hill, and Tawakoni SP on the lake near Wills Point, Tyler SP is further east. There is a great COE park west of Ennis called Waxahachie Creek Park. Besides it's not really HOT here in TX untill you turn on the cold water and it's the same temperature as the hot water

I park near Austin Texas and it takes me a day to just get out of the state. Our only viable option is to get to water and get in it. So many great lakes and rivers to choose from..........besides, summer only lasts 8 months here........... ...........ronspradley
