We travel Omaha to Rockport, Tx. Agree with others Capital City KOA in Topeka, Ks are nice people and accomodating. There are 2 routes to the CG. From the I335 Toll Gate to I470 West go West to the light on Burlingame Road. Go South on Burlingame Road 1 mile to the top of the hill (church on right). Take a left onto a gravel road (should be a CG sign at the intersection). Go 1/4 mile East and CG is on the right. Gravel road can be rutty and sloppy when wet. The other route from the same light on Burlingame Road go left or South under I470 overpass and take first left onto Hiway 75 South. Go South about 1 1/2 miles to the first exit which I believe is 57th St Exit. Go left on 57th St and take the next left or North after the Hiway 75 Northbound ramp. Go North past the Home Depot Distribution Facility then past a bakery on the left to a dead end. Turn left go a short distance over I335 then CG is on left. This second route is all paved.

We stayed at the Ponca City, Ok RV Park last year. Nice place & owners. It's about 10 miles or so East of I35 but it's halfway between Omaha & Waco. We were trying to stay 1 day ahead of the bad weather so a 2 day trip got us to Waco.

When we stay at the Topeka KOA, we like our next stop to be at Murray State Park about 10 miles South of Ardmore, Ok. At the Murray State Park Exit on I35 go East 2 or 3 miles to a deadend. Turn left or North and go 2 or 3 miles to Elephant Rock entrance take a right go past guard shack and take first left which will take you down into the RV Park and the Marina. Full hookups, lots of evergreen trees. A camphost will come around the next morning and collect.

The Waco I35 RV Park is good. It has built up fast the last couple of years. Rock sites and roads but busy place with lots of sites. Complementary breakfast in AM. Take the Elm Mott, Tx Exit for this.

One year we were trying to get ahead of bad weather and found ourselves driving a little too late at night. We were on I35W North of Ft Worth and took an Exit at Argyle, Tx. At the end of the off ramp was Paradise Liqour and RV Park. RV Park had cement pads & full hookups. It was a gift to these tired eyes. It was at the intersection of I35W and FM407.

Enjoy your journey.

Whutfles mentioned Paradise Liquor and RV Park in post #21 above...it is just north of Texas Motor Speedway, and Northlake Rv Park is just east of the race track. It goes without saying - but when there is a race at the Speedway - both of those are campgrounds full!

I agree with you that RVParky appears to be a very helpful app. It's the first app that I've found that warns of low clearance. I haven't figured out how to always make the map display the low clearance warnings. When I add a trip from A to B and then add a stop between A & B, I don't always see the low clearance warnings. I don't know if it is a speed of processing thing where I have to wait to see it or if it's got something to do with pinching the map larger or smaller?

We stay at OK city east KOA nice campground far from highway noise.
I take 35W and 820 around Fort Worth. I also take 77 south at Waco. Would need to see how to hook up to where you are going.

How much time does taking 820W add to your trip thru Ft Worth? Does it make that trip thru Ft Worth easier and does it take longer if you are going that route during the day?

We stay at Drifter's Resort between Rockport and Aransas Pass.

Going thru Ft Worth mid day I would look at google maps traffic view shortly before entering the area and see how I-35W looks thru the downtown area. If not showing red (meaning traffic slow down), then I would simply continue on I-35W rather than taking the longer route around 820. Even if the red were only a short distance, I would still go thru. There has been a major reconstruction of I-35W thru the north side of Ft Worth. But last I read it was 97% complete. And that was 2-3 months ago.

It adds about 8 minutes per GPS.

and major construction 97% complete??!!? On I35 Really? Maybe on the current project, but I am sure they will find another section to slow us down.

Ih35 fort worth

I have not been thru Fort Worth since April but I always experience a few delays heading south, generally starting at Alliance Parkway (Hwy 170) all the way to IH30 downtown but it simply moves slowly. I have never seen it as a parking lot creeping along at 2 mph. Even with the slow moving traffic for 15 miles or so I never took 820 around Fort Worth. By the time you get to 820 you are halfway thru the construction and slow traffic...so might as well continue south on IH35...only a few more miles to go. It’s clear sailing once you pass downtown.

LOL I'll try that next time. But with my luck it will be a parking lot the whole way.

That is only for the section thru north Ft Worth. The other major area of current construction is from about 10 miles south of Waco down thru Temple. Or if on I-35E, from several miles from south of Dallas thru Waxahachie. Those are still far from complete.

Have been driving I-35 from DFW to Georgetown several times a year for 50 yrs. Due to on going construction I-35 has gotten incredibly better, especially over the last 10 yrs. Much of that has been completely rebuilt with added lanes.
