Matagorda Bay is a neat beachside park, a fairly new park, really nice conrete sites, with lots of palm trees throughout the park. It's a LCRA park with a similar atmosphere as a nice State Park. The sites have both 30/50 amp electrical service, sewer connections and a picnic table. The park also has a really interesting Nature Center with exhibits, a small store, a canoe rental facility, a coin-operated laundry room and bathrooms with showers located conveniently right in the middle of the campground. The park is approximately a 10 minute drive south of Matagorda, TX. The small town has a couple of great seafood restaurants as well.

When we visited last year the beach was really clean with tons of great shells (if you're into collecting shells) and the water actually looked nice. The only word of caution is that there are rattlesnakes along the waterfront sites where the Colorado River feeds into the Gulf of Mexico. So watch where you walk along the river.

I would estimate it to be approximately a 4 - 5 hour drive south of the Dallas metroplex.

Tyler State Park. Book now if there are any lake side sites left. All spots in Lakview loop are great views. Will be to early to swim but wild life, bike trails, hiking trails, are great. Very relaxing and beautiful park.

City of Rocks SP in southern New Mexico is a neat place. Might be worth a look to see if it fits the profile.

Oliver Lee SP by Alamogordo is also nice with lots to do in the area.

I have made an executive decision.....We are heading out on the 13th of March and just going to wing it...then when we get tired of driving we will look for closet state park..If we like it we will stay...If not pack up and go to the next until time to come home...about a week.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Shane

That's the spirit! Sounds like an excellent plan to me.

Enjoy.
