Advice on campsites; From Calif-Texas

We will be taking our Fying Cloud 27FB on our first major trip starting around the second week in April. We will be leaving Oakland CA, heading for Austin Texas.

We have a couple of stops already planned along the way, but would appreciate some camping/rv resort suggestions for certain areas. We tend to like full hook ups, although we would consider a scenic campground if access was fairly reasonable.

We would appreciate suggestions for the following areas (plus or minus 25 miles):
Barstow CA
Boulder City NV
Benson/Tombstone AZ
Las Cruces NM
Fort Stockton TX
Fredricksburg TX

Thank you! Mary D.

We just came back from a short trip to Goliad, TX which is going to be "Kinda" on your way. Drop down a bit when you reach San Antonio. We stayed 3 nights at the State Park there and it was wonderful. Full hookups are available and there is an extremely old mission (originally built in 1722, then moved a couple times to get to Goliad) with self guided tours and very knowledgeable Rangers that can answer about anything you hit them with. 1/4 mile away down an easy trail walk is the Fort at Goliad. Another excellent tour. And for those that do not know, The fort at Goliad was the next stop for Santa Anna after defeating the Alamo. The defenders of that fort suffered a different,yet similar fate. Beautiful park with trails and history and in Texas terms, it is "close" to Fredericksburg. (-:

You might give a look-see here:

WARNING - this site can get you addicted to looking at all kinds of neat, new places to explore!

Use the drop down menu in the upper, RH corner of the map to get many other versions of the map, sat images, topos, etc...

You can zoom in on a particular campsite, then look at it from above in the sat or topo views...

Happy exploring...

In Las Cruces, NM, I highly recommend Hacienda RV Resort. Very nice staff and very clean resort with nicely landscaped sites.

The KOA in Fredericksburg, TX gets many positive reviews ... but I have never stayed there.

Just outside of Benson is Karchner Caverns State park with full hook-ups. If you have an I-Phone the App "Campwhere" is great for finding that special spot. We use it often.

We stay at Lady Bird Johnson municipal park when in Fredericksburg. Not fancy but neat and clean at a good price.

Garner State Park is "near" Fredericksburg and is very nice. The state parks in Texas are affordable and pretty nice in general, so check along your route for any Texas state park and it would be tough to go wrong.

Check out Rockhound State Park near Demming, NM (near Las Cruces). Nice campground, away from the city. It's desert camping, so it'll be hot in a month or two.

Also, make sure to check out the geodes at the rock shop about a mile or so from the entrance. Good prices and lots of stories from the two old geezers that live there. Look for the solar panels next to the road.
