This site offers a picnic table, a fire pit, a small camp grill and access to a shared, covered BBQ. The site is spacious with room to park a van or pitch a couple good sized tents. We are just 10 miles outside of Bandera so we offer the peace & quiet of the country. We DO NOT allow guests to have visitors so if you want to share your experience with your friends or family they need to book their own site. We are a family friendly campground so if you are looking for a place to get wild and party, keep looking. If you are looking for a place to get away, relax and enjoy the river then keep reading! Our tent sites are primitive and do not have power or water at the site. We offer a communal kitchen area for the two riverside sites. The kitchen is equipped with outlets, USB plug-ins, a sink, and a water hose. Feel free to charge your phones or plug in your Keurig. We do not allow extension cords to be ran to the campsites so bring your battery powered fans! If you want more privacy you are welcome to rent both riverside sites. We offer river access for floating, paddling, swimming or fishing. We do not offer a boat launch so if your water toy is on a trailer leave that at home! We have a bathhouse with a flush toilet, sink and a hot shower. It’s a hike up the paved drive but it’s better than the alternative! We do not have trash service so you are required to take your trash with you when you leave. This site will accommodate 6 people, 2 pets and up to 3 tents. Please don’t ask if you can bring more people or pets, the answer is no. We include 1 vehicle with the site and you may bring a 2nd vehicle for a $10 charge. The extra vehicle needs to be parked in our overflow parking. Motorcycles and trailers (no matter how small) are NOT allowed. We can not accommodate them so do not bring them.  

Boulderdash Cabin & RV Park is located on 4.8 acres with serene views on the Medina River. Be aware that river levels vary widely. Sometimes we have a lake, sometimes a river, and sometimes a stream. Check for recent photos on our FB page or on Google to get an idea of the river levels. Even when the river is low we have a great swimming hole so bring your chairs, hats, sunscreen and shades. Come spend a weekend or longer at our little slice of paradise. Remember to invite your friends or family to stay at one of our other 3 rustic tent sites, 3 RV sites, the cabin, or our retro RV “Stella” so they can enjoy some downtime too! Bandera is just 20 minutes away and there is always something going on. It offers some great restaurants, a museum, several shops and best of all, Cowboys! If you like to hike the Hill Country State Natural Area boasts 40 miles of trails and is just a short drive away. If you are into horses there are a few local businesses that offer horseback riding. Come on down y'all, play in the river and enjoy the views!

This space is beautiful! Loved having corn to feed the regular deer visitors. The hosts were friendly and responsive. I’d definitely stay here again.

We absolutely loved this spot!! We stayed down at site 2 along what would normally have been the water line, but with the drought we’ve been having there was very little water (which we expected). That said, even with no water we still enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, since the temps were mild and the breeze was plentiful. Enjoyed hiking the dry riverbed at sunset. Stars were plentiful at night, with very little light to interfere.

The communal kitchen space was a real perk, we had running water only steps away from camp. We tend to be fairly self-sufficient so we never used any of the other amenities (bathroom/shower), but it was nice to know they were there if needed. Loved all the solar lights scattered about the property! Firewood is sold on property which is a real convenience. Really enjoyed the complimentary deer corn and birdseed, saw a good many deer wandering around, and 4 ducks that seem like permanent residents.

We can’t wait to come back when the river is full, this spot will be even more amazing with plentiful water to swim in. We’ll be back for sure!!

This camp site is very well maintained and super convenient. There is toilet and hot shower and they are super clean.

All camp areas can access water and electricity, which made it a lot easier.

The view next to river is also very night during sunset. The only missing part is there isn’t that much water in the river during Oct.

We couldn’t have asked for a better first camping experience! The hosts were great and checked on us both nights! River was low making it perfect wading height for my toddler. Even my 16 year old dog had a good time! If you want an outdoor experience with great amenities like fire pits, showers, bathrooms, and an on-site necessity store with ice and wood, this is the place! We will definitely come back and hopefully when the river is higher!

We had a fantastic time at Boulderdash. The views were great and so was the site. We rented both of the lower tent sites and had 5 kids, 3 dogs, and 4 adults. Everyone stayed busy tending to the fire, swimming in the river, throwing rocks, and lounging in hammocks. It was also nice having outdoor sinks, power, string lights, and access to a nice bathroom up the road. Lastly, the owners were super friendly and accommodating.
