What’s better than the Superbowl ?!? . . .

. . . Being at Dallas (AT&T) Stadium on Thanksgiving Day to watch the Dallas Cowboys play the Washington Redskins – that’s what !!!  At least it is if you’re life-long Dallas Cowboys Fans like we are.

We have been Dallas Cowboys fans since the 70’s in large part due to our nomad childhoods.  Both our dads were in the U.S. Air Force, and we moved around quite a bit growing up.  In the 70’s the Dallas Cowboys rose to prominence as “America’s Team”, and since we didn’t really have a stationary home town, it felt only natural to cheer for America’s Team.  This year, we spent much of October and November in Texas, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to soak up some Cowboys legend and excitement.

pecan haven rv campground

Pecan Haven RV Campground; Caldwell, TX Campground Review

Pecan Haven RV Campground is an excellent alternative to the plethora of tailgating campgrounds around College Station. We needed to be in the Bryan-College Station area for 3 weeks for business and were grateful to find this campground.  Most campgrounds in the vicinity are geared for Texas A&M tailgaters and are basically just parking lots with hook ups — which is fine if you’re having a tailgate party and just in town for a night or two.  However, with staying for three weeks, we were looking for a place that was more cozy.

Ole Towne Cotton Gin

Ole Towne Cotton Gin; Quanah, TX Campground Review

Ole Towne Cotton Gin is a great little campground.  It’s an independent campground located between Wichita Falls and Amarillo.  It’s set on the site of an old historic cotton gin with much of the building and equipment restored and on display.  We stayed here for just a couple of days on our way to NomadFEST.   The best thing about this campground is it’s where we met new friends who were also going to NomadFEST — Phil and Stacy Farley of You, Me and the RV; and Chris and Donna Clark of Runaway with the Clarks.

Thousand Trails Bay Landing

Thousand Trails Bay Landing; Bridgeport, TX Campground Review

Thousand Trails Bay Landing was our third Thousand Trails campground, and we’re definitely feeling comfortable and settling in to the routine of Thousand Trails campsites.  Bay Landing Campground is situated about midway between Dallas and Wichita Falls.  While the entrance to the park is right on US-380 and adjacent to the municipal airport, the sites are all grouped around a cove of Lake Bridgeport at least four miles down a partially paved road.   This separation creates a good amount of buffer from road noise, and the airplane noise is minimal and not very frequent.

Thousand Trails Lake Texoma

Thousand Trails Lake Texoma; Gordonsville, TX Campground Review

Thousand Trails Lake Texoma was our first campground stay in the state of Texas 🙂 and our second Thousand Trails stay.  Lake Texoma is actually a widening of the Red River and, as the name suggests, is on the border between Texas and Oklahoma directly between Dallas and Oklahoma City.  The campground is situated on the south side of the lake, and you can access the lake directly from the campground.  We had a good time exploring around the shore of the lake on some of the moderately rough unpaved roads in the Jeep.
