Located just over an hour away from San Antonio, Texas, Choke Canyon Reservoir is a popular spot for visitors even though it is relatively in the middle of nowhere. Spanning 26,000 acres, there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the waters. This reservoir is much more than just a water source for most of the Corpus Christi region, and it is a fantastic place to spend the day.
Located just fourteen miles away from the smaller town of Three Rivers and about 85 miles south of the bigger city of San Antonio, Choke Canyon Reservoir is a year-round destination for people that rent an RV in Live Oak County, and also wish to visit the nearby towns of George West and Kenedy.
Head to Choke Canyon Reservoir for some of the best bass fishing in the state, with the lake bringing in visitors from all over Texas and sometimes even further afield. Due to the fact that it is surrounded by a state park, the shores lack any major developments, which has helped it remain a relatively hidden gem in the world of big bass fishing. On recent years, the lake has been known to produce some 5-10 pound bass, and many people RV camp at Choke Canyon Reservoir to try their luck.
Choke Canyon Reservoir is also great for recreational boating thanks to the huge expanse of open water. The water near the southern shore day-use area is especially popular for boaters. Once you pass the shores and the dam and get out onto the open water a bit more, you'll find yourself out of the no-wake zone so you can really open your throttle and feel the wind in your hair, surrounded by the beautiful Texan countryside.
Surrounding the reservoir is Choke Canyon State Park, a great place to see a unique range of birds and wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for a range of animals such as raccoons, coyote, and Rio Grande turkey, and if you watch the shallows, you may be able to spot a few alligators. A range of birds heads to the area to make use of the expanse of open water, including the impressive Mexican Eagle. Be sure to pack some binoculars and sit quietly while camping at Choke Canyon Reservoir, as you never know what you might see.
As there is a state park around the shores of Choke Canyon Reservoir, it is hardly surprising that there is a popular state park RV campground in the park that is also used by those that want to explore the reservoir. The campground has a number of amenities, and overall is a well-serviced campground. There is a dining hall for when the weather is bad and sitting outside isn't an option, picnic pavilions, hot showers, a rangers station, and a dump station.
Calliham campground features two areas right on the shores of the Choke Canyon Reservoir, 40 of which come with electric hookups, so these are best suited to RVs. Another 18 of the sites have water hookups only. Each site comes with a picnic table and either a fire ring or an outdoor grill. The site sites are connected by a short hiking trail, and pets are welcome to enjoy RV camping at Choke Canyon Reservoir too.
Because Choke Canyon Reservoir is a little bit out the way, many people chose to combine their trip with the nearest big town, which is San Antonio. This is the place to head for all your shopping and dining needs, as it has a bustling downtown area full of places to eat, drink, and socialize. For those looking for a little culture, check out the San Antonio Museum of Art, full of incredible works of art, ideal for those looking for a culture fix when searching for a San Antonio camper rental.
It's hard to not fall in love with the San Antonio Zoo, whether an animal lover or not. The zoo welcomes more than a million visitors through its doors every year, all eager to take a look at the range of well cared for animals that call the zoo their home. Bear Corner is a favorite part of the zoo for many, while others enjoy heading to the Savanna and having an African experience. The zoo is a great family-friendly attraction in the region and will make a good day trip when camping at the lake.
For a fun-filled family day out, the water park of Hurricane Alley is quite close and is a very different sort of water experience than that of the lake. There is a range of slides to enjoy, such as those that are both 3 and six levels high, or for a more relaxed ride, the lazy river is also a big hit. For those with young children, Captain Kids Cove will keep them entertained for hours.
