Move Base to Leakey, and ride the best parts of the Hill Country.

Millions of alternatives... enjoy.

Now if you could just make me some reservations I would be all done.

We stayed at a little dune area around carlsbad once, it was only 10 bucks a night I think. Was looking into the llano state park, looks like a nice place to camp, not stacked like chordwood with some trees around. Will have to do more research this weekend and see if I can get it tied down.

Thanks a lot everyone, you have been a huge help. Keep the suggestions coming.

Got the map. Is there any free dispersed camping around kerrville or fredericksburg, just in case the state parks dont work out. Dog does not do real well in populated areas, barks a lot. Those areas seem to be well centered. Has anyone ever been to the llano state park?

Llano State Park is very nice. I really like Garner State Park. There is a private RV Park right across the river from Garner State Park. Great area. Great Roads to explore. You will like that area alot. Enjoy. Should have no problem finding a place this time of year. Also lots of nice RV Parks around Kerrville. TX. Along Hwy. 39 around Hunt,Tx also nice places. That is also a great riding road along the River.

I was actually looking at either llano or garner. Looked into some of the parks around kerrville, most of them stack you so close to the other rv.s that you are practically connected. We are used to dispersed camping in colorado where you cant hardly see anyone else. I just hope we can keep the mutt quiet so we dont get kicked out.

Lokks like most of the state parks are going to be full or very near full. Might have to look for other options.

Theres not much public land in the hill country where you can just pitch a tent and let your dog bark. The state parks are your best bet and they have pricy entrance fees, more than most other states. Colorado Bend State Park east of San Saba is well off the beaten bath and is a good park for exploring caves, trails and waterfalls. All the roads in the park are gravel which help keep away the crowds. There is a small store at Bend which is near the entrance to the park.

A while back there was someone on Two Wheeled Texans who offered free camping space on his land near Uvalde. Uvalde is a nice area and is the southern gateway to the hill country and is on the southern route from San Antonio to Big Bend. Someone here might know who I'm speaking of? Go to the TWT forum and ask around. Nice city campground in Castroville on the river also.

Dang, you guys here in texas really need water. Would love to see that hill country with all the rivers full. Perfect weather so far just the right temp. Just cant believe so many empty rivers.
