    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.
