Well, I wish you'd posted last week instead. We'd have invited you to join us (the Heart of Texas Camping Unit) just a few miles from you, at LBJ National Grasslands near Decatur. It's all boondocking, but it's a great place to camp and we had a fine weekend.

Fort Richardson in Jacksboro (already recommended above) is a nice little park and quite close to you, it would be good for a "shakedown cruise" weekend where you're close enough to home and civilization to easily sort out any problems you might encounter.

The City of Hico has a nice little municipal park with some full-hookup sites (and some water+electric sites) that's close to the town but still quiet, unless you happened to be there on a weekend when our unit was camping there.

Dinosaur Valley State Park by Glen Rose is a nice park.

I've stayed in several of the places recommended by others above as well, and wouldn't argue about those recommendations.

One thing to remember is that while you'll encounter a day or three that are too cold for fun camping (with the occasional ice storm), overall what passes for Winter down here is ideal camping season in Texas! If you're trailer is by your house, you can just plug in and keep the furnace going on the occasional cold night, or you can get good and winterizing and de-winterizing quickly. It's June through most of September when it's miserable to camp around here!

Camping in north Texas

As others have mentioned, the Texas State Park system is exceptional. Two of my favorites are Davis Mountains SP and Hueco Tanks SP. Davis Mountains is very near the small town of Fort Davis which is a sweet little place with restaurants, a public library and very nice folks. Hueco Tanks is a "Bouldering" destination so, depending on when you are there, you can run into lots of young athletes. I found them to be polite, quiet and interesting. Neither place is one of the RV Resorts or burdened by lots of camper activities. Both are conducive to biking and hiking.

one of our favorites has always been, Dinosaur Valley in Glen Rose. Granbury is close by and you'll have a blast on the square. Don't let cold weather slow you down, in fact you may find you are a winter camper.

It is a little tow for you.. but we found the COE park in Salado, TX is pretty nice. Parking spots not on top each other... room for kids to romp... a lake... some natural wildlife... and great sunrise, sunset, etc..

Peace and Blessings..
