The winter weather in Texas can seem like paradise for those who live in the northern parts of the country. With typical daytime highs in the 70’s and 80’s, plenty of sunshine and not a snow tire to be found for hundreds of miles, the Texas Hill Country attracts “Winter Texans” looking to escape harsh winters and enjoy the culture of our great state. One of the best places for these winter visitors to land is at Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts with locations in Kerrville and Canyon Lake, Texas.

On the surface, one might expect a park such as Jellystone Park to be only for children. With kid activities daily and playgrounds galore, kids indeed love Jellystone Park, but we’ll let you in on a little secret: Adults love Jellystone Park, too. And, with winter being a quieter time of year in the parks, there are discounted monthly rates for Winter Texans for both RV sites and cabins.

Jellystone Parks are famous for their well-maintained grounds, and clean and comfortable stations. With large, pull-thru sites available, and concrete pads, Jellystone Park takes the guesswork out of traveling via RV–whether you’re a seasoned RV’er or a newly-retired novice. If camping isn’t your thing, Jellystone Parks have beautifully-appointed cabins available that will feel like your home away from home.
