    September 28Winter is approaching. I'm in central Texas. Which state parks in the US are great for winter visits in December, January, and February?

        Mark Ford Wed at 12:29 PM Ric, From Houston south the Texas winters are mild. Last year I was in the Panhandle and nearly froze to death!

      Mark Ford Wed at 12:27 PM Any of the South Texas State Parks are a safe bet. It gets cool during the winter but seldom cold. Every now and again we will have an overnight freeze, but not often. This winter I will be volunteering at Lake Corpus Christi State Park.

    September 28This weekend I am at Purtis Creek State Park about 70 miles East of Dallas. It is a heavily wooded park with plenty of shade. Verizon cell service is bad but AT&T works well. Spaces are well apart from each other with trees in between.

    September 25This week I am at Cedar Hill State Park. Great location on Joe Pool lake right between Dallas and Fort Worth. The park is scruffy and a bit run down but they are right in the middle of a 14 million dollar rehab.

        Mark Ford September 25 Hillary, Because of the location this park seems to get more day use people than campers. During the summer it is plenty busy. I stay here often because I have friends in Grand Prarie and Fort Worth.

      Mark Ford September 21 I hope you get to make many of them (state parks). Usually cheaper and as nice as KOA.

      Franbva September 18 I find most state parks do have electric, so I get some potable water when I enter and dump when I leave. Works for me.

    September 17In June I stopped overnight at this Arkansas State Park. The fishing lake is the draw. The campground had only 3 RV sites and 4 tent sites. Sorry I don't have pictures but Lake Kathryn, Crater of Diamonds, and Crowleys Ridge are my favorite State Parks in Arkansas.

    September 14This weekend was spent at Oasis State Park near Portales, New Mexico. This is one of the nicest state parks you will ever visit. Sites are well spaced, level and hard gravel with some paved. Each has a covered picnic table. There is even a covered playgro...  more
