I am looking for a good place to take my young boys camping/fishing during Spring Break.
I would need it to be inexpensive (HS teacher), and about 1-1.5 hours from Ft. Worth.

LBJ grasslands is close and cheap. Been awhile but from what I remember you can tent camp for free in designated areas. They have a number of small lakes and ponds that are decent fishing, lots of trails and nice country for hiking also.
