thousandThis week’s interview features a conversation with Terry Munoz from Thousand Trails RV Resort. Thousand Trails is a corporately owned network of campgrounds across the U.S., with seven locations in Texas. All properties are located on lakes and rivers, which provide plenty of opportunity for family-friendly fun.

The name derives from the original owner in Washington who bought a piece of land and cut trails in it to ride his motorcycle. He added camping sites and the business grew, expanding to other states. Thousand Trails is a unique way to camp and save money doing it. If you’re an avid camper or RVer, check out their Annual Membership Pass. The pass requires an annual fee and gives you year-round camping access to any Thousand Trails property, as well as discounts on cabins, cottages and rentals. Terry Munoz says the pass includes 30 days of free camping and nightly rates as low as $3.

Thousand Trails campgrounds attract Winter Texans and other snowbirds who love to escape the colder seasons. There is also a large population of families at their campgrounds, who seek to spend time in the outdoors and make memories on vacation. Every property features planned activities and abundant wildlife, so there is plenty to do and see.

Texas Attractions: Willow City Loop

Posted on: March 14th, 2013 by admin No Comments

If the different types of landscapes in the state were to enter a beauty contest, undoubtedly two of the top contenders for the crown would be the majestic mountainous area of West Texas and the tall pine forests of East Texas. But perhaps the contestant that would be impossible to beat would be Willow City Loop, an amazing 13-mile stretch of road near Fredericksburg that will blow you away.

The surreal scenery through this unique geographical area features rugged terrain of hills and canyons, live oak trees and an abundance of wildlife. While it is beautiful any time of year, in the wildflower season of March and April it is a little piece of Heaven. A vast profusion of bluebonnets and other colorful blooms cover the meadows, creating an effect that is gorgeous beyond description.

Any visit to Texas Hill Country would not be complete without traveling this road. Moreover, the area is not only near Fredericksburg but is a drivable distance to New Braunfels, both of which are interesting towns to explore.

Texas Attractions: Fredericksburg

Posted on: December 28th, 2012 by admin No Comments

Deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country is Fredericksburg, a gem of a small town with a German heritage that remains very evident to this day. If you were to canvas the depth and breadth of our nation, it would be difficult to find a place where you can hear oom-pah music or a lively polka played by musicians who specialize in this area. Yet it can be occasionally enjoyed here and in other towns in the German section of Texas.

And the German influence isn’t confined to entertainment but is manifested in the food as well. Step into the Old German Bakery and get a whiff of the intoxicating aroma of fresh baked bread. Try one of the German pancakes, pastries or sausage rolls. Also, for lunch or dinner, the town offers several eateries that serve up authentic dishes from the old country.

In addition to music and food that has an old world influence, the town has St. Mary’s Catholic Church, a breathtakingly beautiful place of worship. Although it is small, it has a cathedral-like European old world feel.

To locate an RV park close to this town, click on the Fredericksburg page of our site.. Oakwood RV Park or Fredericksburg RV Park are two of several parks in the area. Or you could use the Find a Park tool on TexasCampgrounds.com. It is easy to make a reservation through our secure site.

Central Texas offers rolling hills, dynamic history

Posted on: April 14th, 2012 by Texas Campgrounds No Comments

Stephen F. Austin settled the land that includes his namesake, and the Texas state capitol city. The region’s beautiful natural scenery and historic sites draw people to the Hill Country every year to camp, swim, hike, eat and shop in the heart of Texas.

The springtime especially brings visitors to see the wildflowers that grow along Texas highways and fields. Whether you’re camping near Lake Travis, central Austin or closer to San Marcos, there is plenty to do both outdoors and inside.

Lake Travis and Lake Austin provide boating, kayaking, hiking, zip lining, cycling and more at the many parks by the lake. Visit the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center to get a glimpse of the area’s most beautiful plant life, and take a dinner cruise to see the bats come out from under Congress Bridge.

Visit the Domain, Round Rock or San Marcos outlets for shopping, in addition to various boutiques around town. And head to the Salt Lick in Dripping Springs for the best BBQ you’ll ever taste. For more urban dining, head downtown for sushi, Mexican, seafood, steak or any other gourmet food you can dream of.

Don’t forget to stop by the Texas state Capitol, the University of Texas tower and the Bob Bullock Museum to learn about Central Texas history. And take a drive through Mount Bonnell and stop at the Cover Park overlook for views to take your breath away.

When you’re ready to plan your visit to the beautiful and historic Hill Country, browse hundreds of Central Texas RV parks and resorts on our Find A Park feature on TexasCampgrounds.com. You won’t regret it, and you certainly won’t forget it!
