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.

Good Luck in finding a park.

There is not a whole lot between Choke Canyon and San Antonio, except maybe Calaveras or Elmendorf lakes. You didn't give a town where you were located or what route you would be traveling.

We'll probably be coming down I35 from Dallas area but could split off before San Antonio if needed..East or west if it doesn't make it too much out of the way for the kids.

Palmetto shows all booked, but Garner SP had a few sites still open today. I may go ahead and book one of them for the time being and cancel if I must.

You might take a look a Lake Braunig RV Resort on the SE side of San Antonio. Never been there, but have seen some good reports.

Otherwise, I might suggest the Rockport/Fulton area. West of Hiway 77(south of SA) is super crowded with oil field personnel. RV site are at a premium in that area.

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.
