Texas Hill Country RV Resorts

The wife and I are planning an early April long weekend outing to the Texas Hill Country for the annual "Wine & Wildflowers Journey" among Hill Country wineries (our wine cooler is getting very empty!). Our "go to" RV resorts in the Hill Country are Buckhorn Lake RV Resort in Kerrville, TX and Sunset Point RV Park in Marble Falls, TX.

However for our April outing, we're considering doing something new and staying at one of these relatively new RV resorts:

1) Old River Road RV Resort south of Kerrville --> https://www.oldriverroadrvresort.com/

2) Open Air RV Resort near Spicewood, TX --> https://www.openairrv.com/communities/spicewood/

Have any forum members stayed at the Old River Road or Open Air RV Resorts? If "yes" what is your opinion of these RV resorts?

Thanks for the help!

Mike you are doing something wrong. My wife does not let her wine stock get that low!!!!!
As we speak, we left Lake Conroe yesterday and now are in Medina Lakes (Thousand Trails Park) today. She plans on Fredericksburg on Saturday to resupply her stock.
Which wineries do you recommend there?

My wife's favorite wines are semi-sweets and sweets while I enjoy dry reds. We can satisfy our desires at these wineries near Fredericksburg:

- Grape Creek Vineyards on Hwy 290 - our favorite!!
- Becker Vineyards - good wine plus the wife re-stocks her lavender soaps (lavender is grown next to the vineyards)
- Fiesta Winery - fun place with mostly sweet wines for the wife
- Slate Mill Wine Collective - small & start-up wineries under one roof - some great small production wines
- William-Chris Vineyards

Presume you will drive from Medina Lake to Fredericksburg (?). If yes, these wineries along the way are very much worth visiting:
- Singing Waters Vineyards near Comfort, TX
- Kerrville Hills Winery on north side of Kerrville, TX

The Texas Wine Trail website has more information about each of these wineries --> https://texaswinetrail.com/

Enjoy the many great wines the Hill Country has to offer!

Lynell and I attended a DRV Rally at Old River Road RV Resort when we still had our Fiver. We spent a couple of weeks there and enjoyed it. The staff was great and they have an indoor meeting room that is very nice and also an indoor pool in the same building as the meeting room. Safe Travels.

Thanks for the info for the area. I've got reservations for the area the end of March. Just a few days to meet up with the kids from Houston. Didn't have a plan or a clue what to do, that may be changing thanks to everyone here.

We will be coming from Wright Patman Lake area. Anything I should know to avoid for the drive. It will be a one day long drive, so I'd like to avoid as many surprises as possible.

We go to the Hill Country every April to meet friends and ride motorcycles. Old River Road is our favorite, especially the newer section. Long full concrete pull thrus, and plenty of space between sites.
They rent golf carts that you can take down to the river and they have cabins which works well for us as some of our friends don't RV.

Mike, we went yesterday up there. We ate at Western Edge there on West Main. The food was very good and nice place. Then we hit a half dozen wineries. We started at The Das Peach Haus was our first stop. Steph found she really liked the Fiesta Winery place the best.

Yesterday, we went up there, we seen a new RV park east of Fredericksburg on 290. It is Arch Ray, nice looking park from the road but we did not go in to look.

the Hill Country is a good visit. I dont think any of those "wineries" actually make wine from the grapes they grow there. they never used to, maybe things have changed. the few patches of grapes are mostly for the tourists to see, but they do produce some good wines. and are fun to visit. we have property by Spicewood Vineyards and those folks are really nice. quite a ways from the actual hill country but a nice area to visit. Eat at Opies. Garrison brothers makes some nice but pricey whiskey but it is a cool place to visit and you could drop by Luckenbach.

I have always wanted to do a Rv trip to Texas.
This looks like a great destination.
Thank you for the postings.
Im thinking a spring or fall trip, not summer or winter.

This week here the high Thursday was around 36, overnight lows:
Wednesday night 33 cloud cover helped with the heat
Thursday night 26 beautiful clear starry night
Friday when we went it was high around 55, clear blue skies.
