    Can anyone quickly recommend any NON-TX State Parks within 200 miles of the Dallas area? Long story short but we were planning to go to OK to camp but weather looks bad so we are trying to stay closer to home but all the SPs are booked up.

    Is Rusk available? That is the Texas State Railroad park, former state park but now private.

    if you are in the DFW area, check out the Army Corp Engingeer parks at both Navarro Mills and Lake Whitney. sites without electric are usually available, even at the last minute.
