Our DD & family live in RGV & we're in N. TX. Austin is about 1/2 way for us both. I'm thinking about meeting them over Easter weekend but they will only have 3 days & we'll have 4,so I'm looking for a place south of San Antonio...somee place that would cut off 1 1/2 hrs for them. Choke Canyon SP is only about 3 hours from them but 7 from us. Can anyone share something between Choke Canyon and San Antonio?
For Easter weekend, I would suggest Palmetto State Park...directly east of San Antonio. Neither one of you would have to travel into San Antonio. Really nice, clean, safe, scenic State Park. For DD's family, they are looking at an additional 100 miles from Three Rivers, TX/ Choke Canyon SP to Palmetto SP.

Have you looked into Goliad SP, it has lots of history. The park has FHU in one area with lots of trees for shade and pull-throughs. Choke Canyon we only stayed one night as a stop over before heading down to south Texas 5 yrs ago. Choke Canyon is a nice park with W/E hookups, not many trees and I do remember picking sticker burrs out of the dogs paws.
You might want to start calling some of these parks. Remember the OIL FIELD workers have invaded South of San Antonio. They have filled
up just about every RV Park. Some cities south of San Antonio that had no RV Parks now have several.
You might want to try Lockhart State Park. That is if you can not get into some park south of San Antonio.
I'd check with Choke Canyon; I saw they were doing a controlled burn to clear brush. We were there in January, 2011 and the brush was so think you couldn't see much. On our first trip in December, 2007 the park teemed with wildlife and birds. I got some great photos because the brush hadn't gotten out of control.
