On the mid-November day Jimmy and I pulled into the RV campground around 4 p.m., black clouds were thickening overhead, winds were blowing hard and, according to the local NPR station, there was an 80-percent chance of thunderstorms. Knowing the kind of weather that can roll through these parts, we wanted to hunker down before ‘anything’ broke loose.
Cost is $35/night with full hookups, and blessed hot showers. WiFi is free.
Then we noticed all the people. It seems this park–because of its municipal golf course and proximity to historic Fredericksburg, the Texas Hill Country, Lyndon B. Johnson’s family ranch, and Austin–is a place that attracts a full influx of Winter Texans (Snowbirds). Cost–Monthly $420 (available September 1-March 31 only). Call (830) 997-7521 for details.
