I would find it challenging to put it away any time during the year. But I can understand where it must be necessary where the weather just doesn't permit camping.

We're right down I-35 from you guys in Temple. Our '71 Sovereign is actually in our workshop in Salado. You guys will have to come see our project sometime.
We're only 45 minutes south of you in Georgetown. We would definitely enjoy seeing your '71 Sovereign. Our first Airstream was a 1967 Tradewind International ... I still miss that Airstream. I'm sure your Airstream is beautiful and I would love to see it.

Lockhart State Park is a beautiful little park. We camped there this summer and had a great time at the pool. We checked availability for Thanksgiving but we waited too late ... it was fully booked with reservations.

Well, maybe the months will pass quickly between now and March. It's probably a good thing we don't have to put ours away for months ... because knowing myself as I do ... I'd be out spending money on things for the Airstream in preparation for the upcoming camping season and tinkering with it ... which probably wouldn't be good on my pocket book.

Where else "around" Garner would you recommend?

I was also out this weekend--camping at the Texas Renaissance Festival. Front blew through Friday night and rest of the weekend was cold, misty and wet. But we had a great time.

For us, where else around Garner then becomes more dependent on the time of the year (activities quickly become limited by the weather because most activities in that part of the state involve floating rivers). There are several nice privately owned campgrounds very near Garner State Park. In fact, we've never been successful getting reservations at Garner State Park so we have always ended up in privately owned campgrounds when we visit that area.

Other favorite destinations in the central/southwest Texas area include:

Canyon of the Eages
Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park

Palmetto State Park
Palmetto State Park — Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

Inks Lake State Park
Inks Lake State Park — Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

Bastrop State Park
Bastrop State Park — Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

Pedernales State Park
Pedernales Falls State Park — Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

Blanco State Park

That always sounds like a fun event. Do they allow generators into the camping area?

Check out Kerrville City Park. It started out as a State Park. Full-Hookups, Pull Through, By Guadalupe River or West Side (Deer Field Loop), (830) 257-5392. Near H.E.B. and Wall-Mart. Be sure to check out Buzzie's B.B.Q. and Cracker Barrel for Breakfast.

I never knew that park existed. Thanks for sharing the information. It looks like a great place to go. Thanks again.

We do Garner in the off season there are some great hiking trails there and geocaching. Week before thanksgiving and between Xmas and new years not crowded at all. Will be there this year after Xmas there are still open sites. The key to Texas state parks are to reserve early.
A lot of the parks are closed for a few days at a time for game management during hunting season. No camping allowed even if you are hunting there.
