New to Texas but not to camping, so we made the short drive up to Oaklahoma to Beavers Bend State Park for a 3 Day 2 night get away.
I have got to say its beautiful there and was one of the best camping experiences I have had.A lot to do and see, some things such as canoeing we had to skip as the water was ice cold.After making a pit stop at Academy for some nice sleeping bags the 40 Deg. Nights weren't bad at all.
Nothing like no electronics, food cooked over a camp fire and good time with family.

Here are a few pics.

There were quite a few RV spots.The people across from us actually had a small RV/van. We just looked for a grassy area because the tent was 14x10 vs most 12x12 tent pads and it just dosent fit well.

Any good suggestions for a nice place to camp in TX? This was roughly a 3 hr drive. Not to far but it might be nice to find somthing closer aswell.

I have camped at Pedernales Falls State Park, McKinney Falls, and Bastrop State Park. Also, Austin's City Park on Lake Travis. But that was years ago. All nice, but nothing as scenic as Beaver Bend. Might be some camp grounds on the Guadalupe River, near New Braunfels. You might try Garner State Park on the Frio River during the off season, if there is an off season. It was pretty crowded when I was there.

There are some smaller Parks in the Luling, Lockhart, Gonzales area that are pretty nice. I'm thinking one was Palmetto State Park.

Don't know where you are but check out Lake Somerville - less than 2 hours from Austin...

I'm in Mckinney, thanks for the suggestions fellas I will check them out tomorrow. We went out to Beavers thinking the cold nights would keep some away but it was packed! I probably won't go again untill spring time. Being just below 40 at night was a little cold lol.
