How do I get there????
This RV Park is 7.3 miles South from Hwy 199 and 2.7 miles East from U.S, 281. The park is approximately:
50 miles Northwest of Ft. Worth, (pop. BIG)
60 miles Northwest of Granbury, (pop. ? ) www.granbury.org/
46 miles East of Graham, pop. (9,000) www.grahamtxchamber.com/
16 miles Northwest of Mineral Wells, (pop.16, 946)
18 miles South of Jacksboro (pop.4570)
34 miles Northwest of Weatherford (pop. 20,150)
What can I expect????
We are planning seminars, interest sessions, potluck meals, wine tasting, a bonfire, door prizes, 50/50 drawing, free time to take in area attractions and restaurants, and, of course, an egg parade to show off our eggs.
We are asking anyone who would like to bring a door prize to please do so. It will be fun to have a door prize drawing on Thursday evening. It can be anything from something handmade, an RV item, or something that represents your state.
Plan to experience Weatherford’s First Monday Trade Days(34 miles from Mitchell’s RV Park), which is held the weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) before the first Monday of every month. Come early enough to attend Weatherford’s First Monday Trade Days the weekend preceding our rally.
Graham has a large city square full of shops offering one-of-a-kind items and antiques. The Wildcatter Steakhouse & Blowout Saloon www.wildcatterranch.com/
(7 miles from Graham), 6062 Hwy 16 South, looks to be a fun and interesting place to eat. Reservations required: (940) 549-3555. Open Wednesday through Saturday, and Sunday for lunch (closing at 2:00PM).
Granbury “Where Texas History Lives” is a definitely a place to visit. Many of the buildings on the historic square are registered historic landmarks. The square is famous for its shops, and neat places to eat. It is going to be easy to spend a whole “free” afternoon in Granbury and have a nice dinner before returning to the RV Park.
Mineral Wells is just 16 miles from the RV Park and is where we can get our Super Wal-Mart “fix”.
We sincerely hope that you all will make every effort to attend the Bluebonnet Casita
Rally, April 5-9, 2006. We are looking for volunteers. Please feel free to email us and tell us what your talent is or what you feel comfortable volunteering to do. Opportunities for volunteering include (but is not limited to) making name tags, musical instruments, bringing some small tasting cups for the wine tasting, something to put in the registration
packet, and/or a door prize, etc. We look forward to seeing you there!! Stay tuned for further announcements and Tentative Agenda.
If you would like to arrive early, there will be a Kite flying festival the weekend before our event, April 1st and 2nd. Our special rates will apply for early arrival or late departures. The kite event will have admission fees, but they will be waived for those registered. A web page is being created for this world class event, and we will post the url when it is available.
Another feature of Mitchell's RV Resort is free wi-fi throughout the park!
We want to emphasize that everyone is welcome!
