RV Picklers: Wide, open spaces

From the bloggers at RV Picklers.

We drove 377 miles west today. We broke the 330 rule (i.e. drive no more than 330 miles or no later than 3:30 in the afternoon), but there aren’t a whole lot of choices once you leave San Antonio on I-10.  We did see a billboard advertising caverns in Sonora, but we blinked and missed the town.

Our destination for this one night is Balmorhea State Park. Balmorhea, just 7 miles off I-10 on Rte 17,  proudly announces a population of 496.  Towns of this size are so foreign to me.  I can’t imagine what it must be like to grow up here.  Who do you date?  But I digress.

This is a very small state park, and it’s reviews on RVParkReview are always very good.  We thought we would be paying $17 for a 30/50amp, water pull through sight with cable. (Cable?  In a state park?  Who knew?) In fact, unless you have a Texas State Park pass ($70/annually) you are charged an additional $7 per person.  But even at $31, this is not a bad deal.

First it is quiet! I guess 496 people don’t make a lot of noise.  Second, it is barren yet beautiful.  The Davis Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop to this oasis in the brush.
