If you said they are both located right off of I-10 and have very nice RV Parks you’d be right. They are both small towns, (Ft. Stockton, pop. 8,535 and Junction, pop. 2618) but their convenience to the major east/west freeway makes them a popular stopping point for the traveling community.
On our second night out, we stayed at Fort Stockton RV Park in Fort Stockton and the next night we were in the Junction North Llano River RV Park. They have very large spots…which was a welcome change…beautiful park-like surroundings, and nice amenities. Even had biscuits and gravy for breakfast in Ft. Stockton…I guess our diet starts later. I also enjoyed sitting in the gazebo on our site in Junction while I got some necessary work done. Great atmosphere for creativity!
They also have another thing in common and that is wind. A sign at the check in desk said “no the wind is not always this strong…some times it’s worse!” and I believe them.
Now we’re parked in Port Aransas, TX. The population here is 3480 and it is the only established town on Mustang Island. According to Wikipedia, “It is located north of Padre Island and is one of the longest barrier islands along the Texas coast. Corpus Christi Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, the Lydia Ann Ship Channel and the Corpus Christi Ship Channel make up the surrounding waters.” We’ve heard it referred to as paradise and we’re really looking forward to some R&R.
Moving took a lot out of us physically and emotionally so we’re ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the environment. We’ll be here for a month and then head north again.
Stay tuned and we’ll fill you in on our adventures on Mustang Island!
