our first overnight outing was at a party about 10 miles down the road from the house. a couple hundred people, about 8 rvs, a big dining tent, and a reggae band! lotsa fun! oh yeah, pouring rain all night. mud everywhere. kinda like woodstock without the pot.

We have a motto with motorcycles. It's not what you ride, it's that you ride. And although it is ultimately more rewarding, at least to me, if I travel a longer distance to have a great camping experience but it's not necessary. And a regular short trip is better than an occasional distant one.

We have a campig beach close to home; we can stay on the beach all night if we're patrons of the campground. There are nice large firepits on the sand, and pleasant breakers at the waters edge. I've used this palce for years at a relativel modest cost. Unfortunately the Governor sharply raised prices a couple of years ago. I've reduced my frequency ever so slightly. But it is too grand a place to miss completely.

For several years now we have parked for a month at a CG that is only an hour away from home. I can stop in any night, but usually stay home Mon to Thursday nights, DW and DD stay at the CG Fri to Thurs, come home one day. It is a nice getaway.

We are looking at doing that this summer to give the kids a change in scenery. We are looking at one about 30 min from house and would be great because I can ride Motorcycle out to the CG.

We regularly camp within 1 hrs drive from home. We have a several state parks that are within 45 miles from home. We purchased our TT in Nov. and to be honest we just love camping no matter how far it is.Our last trip was a getaway without the kiddos to a KOA that was only 15 miles form home, had a blast. As long as your having fun and making memories who cares how long it takes to get there. Enjoy!

I am glad I am not the only "Goofy" one.


Looking forward to hitting this park in the near future.


Did I mention that it is only $15 per night?

Buy the state park yearly pass and you don't pay "day use fee" on top of camp fee.also when you reserve a site at a Tx State Park you are only reserving a slot and not a specific camp site.Why we prefer the Corps of Engeers parks.

I plan a early spring camping/fishing trip every year a couple towns over.... I'm pulling in the campground in about 30 minutes and casting out my first line in about 1 1/2 hrs!

Sorry for the typos, I am probably posting from a not so smart SmartPhone !
