RV Park Texas Travel Tips for the Newbie from Mill Creek Ranch Resort

RV Park TX | MIll Creek Ranch Resort

If you’ve just bought an RV, we know you have visions of the open road, seeing the country, and all with your happy family right there with you in the ‘ol camper. And while it’s called “camping,” no tent setup is required at your favorite RV Park Texas, you don’t have to sleep on the ground, no carrying everything you need in a backpack that’s bigger than your oldest child, and going to the bathroom doesn’t require a shovel. You couldn’t be more excited.

However, there are a few rookie mistakes people make when taking their first few trips that can turn your fun family vacation into something that you need a vacation from. Here are a few tips for the newbies. Just because we’ve made these mistakes doesn’t mean you have to.

Plan your route ahead of time: Planning your route ahead of time and spending just a few minutes with google maps before you leave can help save you time on the road and help keep you from getting lost. Research which RV park Texas you’d like to stay at and book ahead; some of the really popular parks do fill up and it’s no fun to scramble for another place to go, especially if you already had a setback and get in late.

Time: It’s incredibly important to keep in mind that this is a vacation, not a race to the finish. Don’t schedule 7-8-9 hour drives, at least not for your maiden voyage, because seasoned RVers know that there can always be hangups along the way that will have you setting up camp in the dark, with no staff to help you orient yourself. Maybe you forgot something and need to stop at Wal-mart, then there’s always unexpected traffic, unexpected weather, unexpected “uh oh, where’s the dog?” Keep your driving days to 4-5 hours. Stop and take pictures along way, stop for a picnic or enjoy more time at the RV park Texas once you get there.

Become familiar with your equipment: This tip can really have an article all on its own. Make sure you know your RV, inside and out and this includes knowing how to drive it (this seems obvious, but you’d be surprised). It’s probably even worth the annoyance to give it a spin in the rain before embarking on your first road trip.

Be careful, have fun, and don’t forget to visit us at the best RV park Texas has, Mill Creek Ranch Resort.

Try These Recipes For an Unforgettable Texas RV Park Thanksgiving

Texas RV Park | Mill Creek Ranch ResortHere at the Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we want you to be able to celebrate your holiday season with as much gusto as possible, whether you’re staying in one of our cabins or a great RV site her at the best Texas RV park. This year again, we help take some of the weight off of your Thanksgiving demands.  Join us for a potluck dinner,  Mill Creek will supply Turkey and Ham for everyone’s meal, while you get to bring and share all of your great side dishes with the other guests. If you don’t want to have a public Thanksgiving, then we’ve got you covered with some great ideas for how you can cook your own meal, even from the comfort of your RV.

Turkey is the great entree of choice for our American holidays. You may be daunted to attempt roasting this giant fowl, but have no fear, turkeys have been cooked in much worse situations than a crock pot before. In fact, RV Cooking Show offers this unique way to roast your bird with the least amount of time or effort possible in a clean trashcan. For those less adventurous, RV Free Wheelin’ offers this simple and slow cooked dutch oven option. Either recipe is tantalizing and simple, which is the perfect combination for outdoors cooking.

You are probably aware that the biggest concern with cooking outdoors is keeping the recipes simple, the clean-up minimal, and the food tasty. A few tips should give you confidence in your ability to be a camp chef. Like remembering to pack spices for your trip. Salt and pepper are obviously useful and easy to pack. Other spices may take a little forethought. Try to plan out your meals in advance so you know what you need to cook, then you can simply measure out your spices in advance. Keeping the measured amounts in sandwich baggies or ziplock bags is a great way to keep them handy and easy to pack.

“But Thanksgiving is supposed to be a huge feast,” you may be saying. “How can we keep the dishes to a minimum?” One of the best ways is to consolidate your dishes. For example, making sweet potatoes in a dutch oven is just as easy as setting the pot over hot coals for an hour or so, checking to make sure they are soft. You can add twice the Thanksgiving spirit to this dish by adding in cranberries to give the meal that special dose of tartness. Using some of the spices you packed with you, like nutmeg, cinnamon, or maple sugar. Get creative, and try out some new ideas or recipes. With a  little gumption, you may find that Thanksgiving in a Texas RV park is your favorite way to enjoy the holiday.
