Castroville, TX is a sleepy little town just west of San Antonio on Highway 10. It calls itself "The Little Alsace" of Texas. A mixture of old southwest with a French heritage makes the buildings in Castroville a unique place to visit. You can pick up or download a historic walking tour of 50 homes build in the 1800's and wander the streets. There are many events planned in this community every year - fun, fun, fun!
We stayed at the Castroville Regional Park which is located on 126 pecan and cypress tree shaded acres and outlined by the pristine Medina River. They don't take reservations, but they DO take Passport America! The fees are $35 per night normally but you can stay a month for about $300 per month - including electricity! The park ranger is on site and will get you settled. CHECK IT OUT HERE!
It's a great place for a picnic or hike. It's also a great place to fish or just relax and enjoy nature. There is a one mile track around the park and mom and dad used it to try to wear me out....it didn't work.
That night we had a terrible storm. The weather alerts said tornadoes were in the area!!! Luckily none came near, but the lightening was beautiful!
My brother Buddy was very frightened by the loud thunder and lightening, but I slept through most of it. Mom says I will be a great traveling dog..as soon as I get house-trained...whatever that means...
Joining Passport America lets you camp for 50% at some campgrounds, some nights. Be sure to check the limitations at each park. Some will only let you stay one day and some will let you stay 7 at the Passport America rate.
