Lost Maples State Park

I have never been to Lost Maples State Park, Texas.

I will be travelling from I-37 from Corpus Christi and would like to know the best route. I was thinking about about: (choice #1) - to Hondo,TX, west on US90, then 187 North to Hwy 337, then NE to LM State Park. I would be driving a 35 foot motorhome towing a Honda. Or would it be best to: (choice #2)- travel through Hondo, go west to HWY 127 then north to Leaky and then Hwy 337 east to LM State Park. Or is there a better route and can I handle these roads with my 35 foot motorhome towing a Honda Accord?

Is there a campground at LM State Park or one nearby that will handle my rig for about 3 days? Can I drive my rig into park to campground, unhook and drive my toad?

Thanks ....................

Iím from the San Antonio area and head up that way quite a bit. Nice roads for biking. Your route is probably a good eliminating most of the steep hills and twisty roads. If you donít mind steep grades, the highway 16 to Bandera then on to Medina then up the 337 to the 187. The 337 is a nice scenic road but up and down and twisty. BTW if youíre into motorcycles a great museum close to the park.

RR 337 is a beautiful drive, but not for a 35' MoHo and dinghy. You will do much better to come up from Sabinal on RR 187 through Utopia. RR 337 is a bit winding. last time we were through there with a TT it was only a 21' TT. Cafe in Utopia makes great buttermilk pie and old fashion chocolate sodas.

The cold is usually first two weeks in November.

It is also a state park and you can make reservations through the state site.

INFO on the park.

HERE is a map of the park.

Thanks for the help on the Lost Maples Park. Is it mostly for hiking?
The problem with this Park, we are in our 60's and cannot do a lot of heavy hiking?

90% of LM State Park can only be seen by hiking, but it has a short trail and a long trail. I am 63, not really physically fit, we were there a couple of years ago and didn't have any problem with the short trail. This time of the year you may not be able to get reservations. We stayed at Garner State Park which is a hugh SP and about 30-40 minutes from LM. While we enjoyed our time we spent hiking at LM we enjoyed our time at Garner SP a lot more. It has a great river (stream) running though it and lots of beautiful trees that had great fall colors. See my photos at: 2008-11-15 - Garner and Lost Maples State Parks - ronniesphotos' Photos
