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.

Ft. Griffin between Albany and Throckmorton is nice and isn't too far.
