We are moving to either Austin or San Antonio in about a month. We will be staying in an RV to be more mobile until we decide which area is to our liking. We are from Redding CA (far northern CA) and spend alot of time on a very huge Shasta Lake. We were in Austin a few years ago and it felt a little to much like CA, but very beautiful. I love lake Travis. Is there another lake that is comparable to Travis in San Antonio? And how far is Canyon lake from work, town, ect.
Also would like to know about flooding and flood insurance in Texas. We live on a creek here and only pay about $360.00 a year.
One more question-is there any hill country in San Antonio. When I visited Austin, I really loved Leander and areas around Travis lake, but prob don't want to be to far from town. I like a nice fifteen to twenty min drive to work.
Thanks so much for any info.

Yup, there is Hill Country in SA, the north side gets into the Hill Country. For an RV park in the area (Boerne actually) stay at Alamo Fiesta RV park. Nice park, there is Blazing Star over by Sea World if you more stuff and that part of town. Leander has Sunshine RV park when you are over here...(mom is full time RVer)

Canyon Lake is about 45 minutes from northeast San Antonio. The big hold-up heading there if you take 281 is all the annoying stoplights.

You can get to Canyon Lake via Nacogoches(FM 2522) to FM 3009, Right on 46, then to FM 2722. This makes sense especially if you live NE SA and prefer a more scenic, less traveled route.
