    Kinda bringing back a thread from the dead here, but maybe I can get some feedback. Looking for a car camping spot to hit up on Saturday after a business trip to Austin. Looking for something between Austin and FTW, preferably farther south.

    My GF isn't much into camping but wants to go try it because she knows it's important to me. So for her sake bathrooms are important and hopefully some fun stuff to see/do while spending the day there Saturday. For me, I want trees to hang from so I can check out my rig. I've only hung in it one night in a backyard.

    McKinney is looking promising. Also looking at Enchanted Rock. Anything else I need to think about?

    By the way, my gf will be in my tent and I'll be in the hammock if all goes as planned.

    I've hung at McKinney falls in the primitive area. Water was at the sites and a decent bathroom just up the hill. All had areas for at least two hammocks

    Take a look at Lake Mineral Wells State Park. Variety of Camping styles, primitive to full blown RV Friendly. Went there a few times as a ground-hound, but if I recall plenty of hanging possibilities.
