The Cactus Campers is now an FMCA chapter.  We were formed as a Good Sam Club in 1975.  We are now the FMCA Cactus Campers.    We welcome travel trailers, 5th Wheels, Class A’s, B’s and C’s.  We have members 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 meet the first full weekend of each month Thursday to Sunday but check our rally schedule for changes.  The Thursday has to be in the month to count as the first weekend.  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 September of 2024 our 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 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 on Thursday or Friday morning.  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 morning, 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). We also occasionally play Card Bingo and Left-Right-Center.  Meals are decided by the rally hosts and may be a combination of eating out, host-provided meals, potluck, heavy hors d’oeuvres or group grilling.  We usually do a shrimp boil at the coast and our Christmas dinner is either catered or at a nice local restaurant.


We hope you will come visit us at one of our future rallies and join in the fun.  On your first visit, there is no rally fee or 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.
