Here is the park website:
Hours & Locations

What to bring is really up to you. My son and I slept in the bed of my M35 in March, cooked our own meals and used the rest room/shower on site. Drive a car, throw up a tent and run to town for meals if you want. "town" by the way is Bryan/College Station. Home to Texas A&M (WHOOP!) and just about any store you might think you need. Figure 3-5 miles depending on what you are looking for.

Can I get a littel help on a Hwy or an address or FM road or some way to find where to go? I ahve never been there so I ahve no idea where in Bryan/Colege Station is is. I can find the town but where do I go from there? I am not 100% sure I can come but plan to bring wife two boys and self. But ther way I'll pay my part to support the cause so it will be there when I can come. I'll drive the M820/M813 4 door clone and the M109 if I have it finnished as a camper. I have a military command tent I'll bring if I can make it if it is wanted. I also have a 30kw gen with Quiet kit that can come if it would be useful. I will know if I can make it sometime around Sept 1st-15th but at the moment it looks good.

Amarillo, TX to Unknown road - Google Maps

Google directions from Amarillo.

West side of Texas 47, just north of W. Villa Maria Rd.

Entrance is at the cross over. You can see the camphouse and some of the trails in the satellite photos.

I want to see how close to the Brazos (that is the river there right ?) we can get without getting really stuck !

I will do my best to make it with my M35A2. My work situation has gotten more steady in the last few weeks, so that shouldn't be an issue. I will definitely be looking forward to it.

bambambam22, we had plenty of people last time and more than enough people have already signed up to ensure that this will keep happening every 6 months or so. Feel free to bring anything you can/want. We realize people's work schedules change so letting me know sometime in September will be plenty early enough.

We don't get to go all the way to the Brazos. Close, but not all the way.

From Amarillo, take 287 to Ft. Worth. I-35W South to Waco. Hwy 6 South to FM2818. Then, Villa Maria West to TX47. Turn North on the feeder and at the first cross over, drive up to the gate. Figure 8 hours in a normal vehicle and a whole lot more in a military truck.

If I can arrange work and the like, more importantly, will the truck be ready in 3 months?

The whole of August is too hot for me to work outside that's for sure. I've got at least one seriously unbalanced tire and no idea how to figure out which one it is. They are 16.00x20's on goodyear split-ring rims, big heavy stuff.

I've thought about putting it on jackstands and running it to see which tire is wobbly, but that does not seem very safe.

Who knows what they are doing and can check these things for balance in Dallas? Pitches like a mule at 20-30MPH. heck I'd pay good money for that to be fixed!

OPCOM, I have talked to the local (Bryan) Goodyear/Wingfoot dealership and they have been very helpful, plus I know they have guys that can come to you to do a lot of the work. If you can't get the truck ready, feel free to come on down anyways to meet up with us and hang out.

Mudstone, so far you are the only one coming from OK, but you may be able to meet up in the Dallas/Ft Worth area with the two guys coming from Amarillo and anyone coming from DFW area.
