We are headed to Kerrville, Texas, is there any must do things in that area? I have narrowed our choices for parks down to a few in the area, but I really like the looks of Kerrville-Schreiner.

What attractions should we not miss when we are there? We are going in November I think. Thanks for all the input.

There is a great Nimitz museum in Fredricksburg - not typical museum at all and a great place to visit. Some good wineries around Fredricksburg.....If you have never seen bats leaving a cave at dawn or returning at dusk - there is an old RR tunnel there that the state wildlife folks hold a tour at where you can watch them leave and it is a real experience...There is about a million of them and they all come out at once and form a funnel and take their different paths. Downtown Fredricksburg is a nice place to visit too...We stayed at Ladybird Johnson RV park there.

A lot to do in that area of Texas. You will enjoy Kerrville-Schreiner park the times we stayed it was state owned. One thing you can find in Kerrville is a Gibson Discount Store. We always go to it when ever in the area a must for us. Even if you take road trips arount the area of Hunt is just neat drive.

Good choice on a place to stay. We really like the park. The sites near the river can be a bit noisy due to traffic. But the sites in the Deer Field loop are very nice.
In addition to seeing Fredericksburg:
- It is a bit of a drive, 2 hrs, but the Caverns of Sonora are very interesting. By far the best cave decorations of any we have been to.
- If you are up for a hike. Enchanted Rock SP north of Fredericksburg is well worth the effort.

Also you will be about 1 hour from downtown San Antonio. If you have not seen the Alamo and river walk it's worth a visit.

Have fun.

Bandera (cowboy capital of the world) is good for a day trip. A number of things to do there.
Bandera
And the loop from Kerrville to Bandera to Medina to Vanderpool and back to Kerrville is very pretty. Some of it country you would not expect to see in Texas.
Agree the Nimitz is worth a visit especially if you have any interest in the 2nd world war. Great exhibits and collections of that era.
According to their web site, the Old Tunnel bat viewing is only available May thru Oct. I guess they migrate during the winter.
Just a note. Deer season opens Sat. Nov. 7. There will be thousands of hunters descending on the whole hill country area. Don't know how that may affect availability of camping sites.

I agree with taking the road to Bandera. On the way you'll pass Camp Verde with its old general store worth a stop. Also, in Kerrville there is a restaurant, whose name escapes me, but it is mainly a fish place, but with the typical chicken-fried steak, that is on a hill overlooking the Guadalupe River that is good food and even better view. From there head east about 20 miles or so to Boerne for shopping, antiquing, just looking in the shops. Beautiful little town.

You may want to stop at Lukenbach, just to say you were there!

MichDoc beat me to it!! I second Luckenbach - "where everybody is somebody"! You can then say you hung out with Willie and the boys!

LBJ Ranch and state park is nice as well as Johnson City.

Fredricksburg already mentioned, especially if you want to try the hill country wine.

Was in the hill country 3 years ago and it was great. Going back again within the next several months.

One word of caution - if and when they have heavy rains roll through, be sure to HEED the road closed signs! Flash flooding can and does occur in the hill country and they are serious when they put those signs out. One night had to get into SA to pick my sister up at the airport. Took us 2 hours because of the closed roads. Next morning found out that a couple was swept away in their car and were drowned on one of the closed roads that we had to turn around at. If you ignore the signs, automatic $500 fine and you pay the rescue bill!

How could I forget Bandera - the self-proclaimed "cowboy capital of the world!"

It's a beautiful area and can hardly wait to get back.

Enjoy your time there.
