Went to an early Thanksgiving in Lawton, OK. While down there I camped for 4 days at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Very good weather and a lot of Turkeys in the campground.

Hi:SFDavis... I really dislike it when there are a lot of "Turkeys" in the campground. Specially after they have a few beers and sit around the campfire and start to sing!!! Alf

Thanksgiving weekend camping on the Idaho side of Hells Canyon. Looking over the Snake River/Brownlee Reservoir to the hills across river, which are Oregon. Beautiful and peaceful getaway.

Lovely spot, south shore of Bastrop Lake. Lots of ducks quacking away.

I did a lot of training at Camp Swift through the years not too far from Lake Bastrop. Let me know how it is for camping. We are gradually checking out state parks and other campgrounds within a 3-4 hour drive from Houston. We visited McKinney Falls SP near Austin last month and got our “fix” at the original Chuys.

It's nice here John. The park is operated by the LCRA, which is the same outfit that runs Matagorda Bay Nature Park on the gulf coast. In fact, LCRA runs several parks along the Lower Colorado, from the Hill Country to the gulf. Their parks are well run with good facilities, and about the same price or slightly less than the State Parks.

This particular park was not affected by the fire like Bastrop State Park was. That park was essentially destroyed, and although they are working to recover, without the loblolly pines, it just isn't the same.

Great fishing here by all accounts as well. I picked the right time because there are very few campers and it is very quiet.

Thanks! Good to know. LCRA operates a number of parks along the Colorado. We will check it out. We have Goliad SP on the list for January provided the weather cooperates. Embarrassed to say as a Texan but I have never been to Goliad and I am looking forward to it.

Yes, Goliad and the Alamo are kind of prerequisites. Alot of Texans don't know that more Texians were killed in the Goliad massacre than at the battle of the Alamo - although instead of dying in battle they were just lined up and shot.

This Texan does. . I’m a bit of a history buff. Even fewer Texans have heard of the “Runaway Scrape”. Just never made it to Goliad. Looking forward to it in January. Thanks.
