After the Texas Rally in March we plan on heading down to the Rio Grande Valley for a month or so. Am unfamiliar with the area so would appreciate any campground recommendations, places not to miss, etc. There are so many campgrounds to choose from I hope some of you have had some personal positive experience with some of them. Thanks in advance for your help! I'm already tired of snow, come on March!!

Russ, are you thinking of Big Bend NP? I guess I'm just not sure what is considered Rio Grande Valley.

The Rio Grande Valley is deep South Texas. I would recommend searching rv.net and the Escapees forum for good information from snowbirds that stay in that area. Pack heat in case you have any cartel trouble.....

I just read this on RV Net. Here is the link to the article. Based on this man's opinion it sounds pretty safe right now. http://rvnewsservice.com/?p=489



looking forward to meeting you in Kerville

Thanks, all, for the tips. Got me doing research and excited enough that I'm leaving tomorrow on a "scouting trip" to South Texas in advance of our longer trip in March. Two weeks probably ought to do it...wait... it's starting to snow...maybe three weeks. I'm going solo and Joyce is resigned to the shoveling chores. Also looking forward to meeting y'all at the Texas Rally. Cheers!
