going to the hill country
« on: December 18, 2018, 10:58:17 AM »
I have a 25' Airstream to park before unloading the bike for 3-4 days of riding in the hill country area.  I am planning on a stop at COTA just to see it.  I'm wondering where the best camping with a hook up that's out away from large groups of people might be.  Thanks,
Wade

See my response on the other place about Walmart. They let truckers park there. And the additional details about security are that you can park in their back 40 (where no one parks) and come back to find a phalanx of cars parked inches away from you on all sides.

Not an RVer, so......

Heard good things about Schreiner Park in Kerrville

I've seen RV parks in Leakey, and probably all the towns had I paid attention. Tourists and deer hunters are a big deal in the area. Might contact the Chamber of Commerce of some of the towns.

Maybe Garner State park near Concan.

(edit)sorry missed the part about large groups, that probably lets Garner out. I know it would in the summer, not sure about winter.

Llano has a city park and an RV park


Away from things....check out Leakey, Camp Wood, Castell, etc

Glad to see some activity.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

We have never had what one could call a net positive experience staying at a walmart. Necessary evil only. We have probably done about 10 or so nights at various marts across the country. Each was Meh. Montana was the worst. 24 hours of lifted diesel trucks rolling smoke in and out of the lot and up the entrance ramp to the highway. Ugh.

Conversely, most state parks and all Natl forest, army corps of engineers and BLM land experiences have been positive.

We avoid anything called a family campground or RV Park.  <shudder>
