Spring Creek Park is a county park that has only eight sites, and they are full hookups. And they are totally FREE. We only have a cell phone for emergency use, so we didn’t call them but instead filled out their online reservation form.
Half way there, we stopped for a rest and internet and found that they had responded saying there was no availablity for tonight. We figured that we want to avoid the metro Houston area, so we would head to the park anyhow and just see what it was like.
We drove 208 miles (333 kms) and arrived at the park around 3:15pm. There was one empty site. The signs say no setting up until you check with a ranger, so we went for a walk with Whiskey to try to find one. We figured that even if we couldn’t park in a site that maybe they would let us dry camp somewhere.
Couldn’t find a ranger, so we went back to Sherman and decided to at least put Sherman into the site and empty the holding tanks and fill up with fresh water. After all, the sites are free. Eventually a ranger came by and I went and asked about using the vacant site despite the fact that we had been told they were full. He went and checked, and said that we were fine for the one night. So not sure if they had a cancellation or what. Anyhow, that’s where we parked for the night.
Full hookups (even has a 50A outlet) for FREE.
Just for fun, I tried our Mexican TelCel intenet stick. Sure enough, it picked up a roaming signal from AT&T but it said that it wanted something like $46 for 5 days use. Yes, it was definitely dollars, not pesos!
Does anybody have any suggestions for the best cellular internet stick that is pay-as-you-go?
