My wife and I were at the Fredericksburg KOA camp last week. It's about six miles east of Fredericksburg and only about four miles from Lukenbach. It's about 60 miles from San Antonio. We've also stayed at Top of Hill in Boerne which is nice and has a good view of the area. It's about 35 miles west of SA. Kerriville is nice, but not too close to SA. Junction is further west of Kerrville, but the KOA camp is right on the banks of the Llano River. Most people make it further south in winter to the Rio Grande Valley; seldom freezes down here and South Padre Island is a great place in winter (not too crowded). Tons of RV parks down here.

Texas Parks

The state parks in Texas are great values for Airstreaming. We try to hit them whenever we are traveling. Almost all of them have good restrooms with showers, large camp sites with tables and covers, fire rings etc. Electric and water. There are many to choose from across the San Antonio Austin region.

You missed Guadalupe River SP, which is a lot closer to San Antonio since they were looking for something near SA. Guadalupe River is a big park and is reasonably close to New Braunfels, also, with its German culture.

There are parks in Johnson City which give easy access to the LBJ birthplace and LBJ ranch. The big house at the LBJ ranch is now open for tours. Fredericksburg, with German culture, is an easy drive. That area is worth a couple of nights on the way.

Also, at that time of year, I would stay no further north than about Georgetown. I have had frozen hoses overnight in late February in the Austin area. The San Antonio area gets more influence from the Gulf of Mexico and usually the night time lows are a bit less severe.

Our favorite campground in the San Antonio area is located on Canyon Lake, north of San Antonio. It is a COE campground named Potters Creek Campground. I think it has about 150 spaces, only full on holiday weekends during the summer. W&E hookups, dump. Very nicely cared for campground with lots of wildlife. About $9/nt with Senior Pass or Golden Age. Fantastic place right on the lake.

Just stayed four nights at the KOA in San Antonio. Perfect location to visit all the sights downtown. It's only an 10 minute drive to the Alamo. It's clean and secure! In Blanco try Blanco Settlement. Have a great trip!

2 of the BEST State parks are near San Antonio- Garner State Park, which is lovely in the fall, and has nightly juke box dancing!! and Inks Lake, also pretty in the fall, and has a super swimming hole!
