Who We Are Anchor 3


The Cactus Campers is an FMCA Chapter.   We were formed as a Good Sam club in 1975.  We have members around Central Texas.  We have members from as far-flung as Kerrville and Copperas Cove.  Most of our members are retired or "near retired" and range in age from the 50's to 70+.    We typically meet the first full weekend of each month Thursday to Sunday but check our rally schedule for changes. Many rigs come in on Wednesday.  We don't meet in June, July or August due to the Texas heat and summer travel plans our members have.


We generally go to parks within 150 miles of San Antonio.  Once or twice a year we will do a longer trip if enough of the membership is interested.  Places we have been include Pine Mountain, Georgia for the Azalea festival and the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.  In 2024 our September rally will be at the Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma.


Places around the area we have held rallies include Aransas Pass, Victoria, Conroe, Rockport, Ingram, Bandera, Port Lavaca, New Braunfels, Fredericksburg, Onalaska, etc.  We try to go to parks that have interesting places nearby to visit and shop or have an event going on.  Our Wagon Master is always finding new parks to try.  The monthly meeting is a regular time to get the rig out and exercise it in the company of friends.  


We have a few members that play golf on Thursday or Friday mornings of the rally weekend at a course near the rally park.   We have a "Breakfast Club" that goes out to eat.  We are not too structured and let people decide what is fun for them.  We just want everyone to relax, visit, and have a good time.
We have a social hour each day with snacks and beverages followed by games and visiting.  A full breakfast is provided on Saturday morning with a brief business meeting thereafter.  Sunday, we have a light breakfast after which we head for home.  We spend time visiting, shopping, eating and playing card games like Jokers or dominos (42 and Mexican Train).  Meals are decided by the rally hosts and may be a combination of host-provided meals, eating out, potluck or group grilling.  We usually do a shrimp boil at the coast and our Christmas dinner is typically catered or at a nice restaurant. 


We hope you will come visit us at one of our future rallies and join in the fun.  On your first visit, you are our guests and there is no rally fee/food fee.  If you like us and what we do, you can apply for membership at the second rally you attend. The annual dues are $20.    The rally/food fee is typically $40 a couple/$20 per person at each rally and will be charged starting with the second rally.  Eating out and special events are the responsibility of each individual.  You must be a current member of the national organization to join.
