Wimberley Dark Night Sky Camp
8 sites · RVs, Tents5 acres · Wimberley, TXOnce Cook Ranch, this over grazed land is being revitalized. Located in unicorporated Hays co., in the center of the county, and north of Wimberley.
Now an organic and pesticide free garden, our home is surrounded by Texas Hill Country wilderness that we know our guests will enjoy. Family guests park at the top of the property, in self contained campers. Amazing night sky views and wake up to incredible nature. Tents may camp almost anywhere.
Primitive camping in our wildlife sanctuary, on the ledge of our hill side, away from the hives. A game fence protects our guests from wildlife, and our recapped and graded hard packed limestone road base driveways lead you up to sites to choose from. Under the stars, under some oaks, or under some junipers, at the barn... all have great privacy. Tent campers can also camp anywhere around the barn, in the field meadow in front of the barn or in the trees next to the barn stables door.
Extremely quiet, peaceful and wild, your view of Wimberley valley, and a visit to Jacobs Well Nature Preserve on Mount Sharp Road will make this stop worth it, as we are only an 8 min slow drive to Jacobs Well Preserve. Welcome to our Bee and Berries Farm.
Additionally you can take advantage of local wineries, distilleries, farms, historical centers, parks and activities listed below.
At the Blanco Hays county lines, visit the Blue Barn flower farm if coming in from the west.
Week days you can get some local produce at Dirt Candy farm, and Thursdays there is a farm market in the afternoon at 12 and Winter's Mill Parkway.

Situated along a one-mile stretch of the spring-fed Blanco River, the small but mighty Blanco State Park is very family-friendly, offering the spectacular Falls Dam, nature trails, fishing, tubing, kayaking, and deep water for a good, refreshing swim. The stocked river is teeming with largemouth and Guadalupe bass, catfish, sunfish, and rainbow trout, and can be an excellent place for beginning anglers (you can even borrow equipment for free).
Swimming at holes, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, and birding are a few of the quintessential outdoor Texan activities visitors enjoy most at Pedernales State Park, located near the area of Texas Hill Country where former President Lyndon B. Johnson grew up. Next to the famed Pedernales River, the park is an hour west of Austin, an hour east of Fredericksburg, and about 20 minutes from downtown Johnson City. Wineries and distilleries are a short drive away in nearby Dripping Springs and Stonewall.
No dogs allowed at the camp. Endangered birds are at the top of the property, and our farm cat is scared of dogs, hens and rooster may be endangered.
