Spring Break, TRIP,.. Need help Again.

You guys/gals have been so helpful on helping us plan our trips. Last trip was a recommended stay at Queen Willahemia State Park in Arkansas. Never would have known about it if it wasn't for a member here. It was awesome.

Thank-you.

Advice on our Spring Break, Mid-March is needed. Our son is a senior this year and probably his last go around with MOM and Dad. Do not want to spend a day driving to a location. Like to keep it around 8 hours or less. We Love State Parks. Don't care much for RV parks. We are planning on spending close to a week. We stayed at Buffalo Point S.P. last spring Break and had a lot of fun hiking and the views were nice also. But we are open to any and all suggestions.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

Thank-you

Shane

Sorry, I didn't know the difference. Didn't mean to offend.

I thought your post was in Jest.

Sorry again,

Shane

Hi Shane,

You might want to check out DeGray Lake State Park, also in Arkansas. There are many things to do in addition to camping, including (in season) bald eagle spotting boat tours. The eagles mostly winter there, so I don't know how many are still in the area during spring break. I have been on a tour on Thanksgiving.

Another consideration would be Mount Magazine State Park, beautiful views and good hiking, but not as much to do. I grew up in the area, but it was a much smaller National Park facility then.

There are other state parks with camping as well, but Wilhelmina, DeGray, and Magazine are the crown jewels of the Arkansas State Park System.

What about Big Bend National Park? It's the least visited national park, but it is gorgeous - right on the Rio Grande.

The best sites are those that only offer boondocking - no facilities. But we spent a week there several Thanksgivings ago with the kids - awesome!

Big Bend is enormously busy during the spring break period.

I've come to a dead end......I'm looking for the Perfect campsite. I have had a blast on all the places I've been,...but since we will be leaving during the end of winter.Mid-March..because of son's spring break, the trees won't be in bloom and almost no leaves. So I'm looking for a VIEW. I thought I saw a place on the internet RV park/state park with a site that you back-up to and has an awesome view.SECLUDED....With Hook ups...water and electric. I'm thinking it is in New Mexico. Which is still quite a drive

Maybe I was dreaming.

thanks,
Shane

A lot of people enjoy the adventure of this state park.

Not a long drive it is on our list of things to do but we have not made it there yet.

Diamond Mines - Crater of Diamonds State Park

What about heading west? Head west, not on highways through Roswell towards San Antonio, NM - lunch/dinner at the Owl Cafe for green chili cheeseburgers, head further west towards wherever... absolutely gorgeous territory.
