Most of the state parks surrounding San Antonio offer that. Here is a link:

Tons. Government Canyon State Natural Area and Hillcountry State Natural area are both HUGE, 30 minutes or less outside the city, with lots of trails. There's stuff closer in, too. Here's a link to a few:

I think they allow primitive camping only at Hillcountry, none at Govt Canyon.

Bumping an old thread...


Camping is available at Medina Lake, but through private grounds. $25 a night at Joe's, I think. Also available at Braunig and Calaveras - it's primitive, but there are plans to overhaul them both soon.

We just got back from Goose Island SP (3.5 hours south of here) and we're going back this weekend!

Default Choke Canyon :)

We just got back from a camping trip to Choke Canyon, and it was awesome! Jules07 and her DH went too, and 3 of their kids. We had a great time! The camp sites were big - there is a 75 acre lake, a 5 acre lake, and the reservoir itself. Caught my first "real" bass within walking distance of our campsite....

We had a bat in our pavilion, but he wasn't a problem. Lots of wildlife - deer, armadillos, a daily rabbit visitor, etc. S'posed to be gators around, but we didn't see any.


Here are two pics!

Some great hiking / biking trails within the city can be found at:
OP Schnaebel park on Bandera Rd.
McAllister Park near the airport
Friedrich Wildlife Center on 10 just north of 1604.

We went camping at Guadalupe River St Park this last weekend - it was very pretty with a few trails. I'd also recommend Gardner State Park, Inks Lake, and Lost Maples State Parks. We still haven't visited Government Canyon, but there's a pretty long network of trails there as well!

It looks like there were a couple of pop up trailers there. I may have to take mine and go there too. I hate having my pop up around those huge rv house type of motor homes. I feel like they are laughing at me.
