This was our third time at Grapevine Springs Retreat. The property was as beautiful as always. The drive to the campsite is no joke but well worth it - and actually kinda fun. My favorite part of Grapevine is the fact that Wilson only rents to one group at a time.

This was the best camping adventure our little family has been on together! Our daughters normally groan at the idea of camping, but they told us they wanted to go camping again as soon as we got home from this trip. Our SUV almost couldn't handle the ranch road, but it was worth it. Thank you Wilson!

Wow! What an amazing time we had! We were there to celebrate my birthday and I can't think of a better place to have spent our time together. The property is incredible! the site is very secluded and we felt like we were the only people on earth out there. The site has several places to set up tents and our group was pretty big and everyone was able to find a place where they were not on top of each other. There was so much to do that the kids didn't ask for electronics one time! Like the listing says, you will need a truck or SUV but our friends small SUVs made it but did scrape bottom quite a bit. Wilson was an amazing host. He answered our many questions faster than any other host I have ever stayed with and went out of his way to help us back to the site in multiple groups. It will be hard to find another place to camp after this.

We love this place- our second time here was just as great as the first. Wilson is a welcoming and laid-back host and the site is perfection. We’ll definitely be back!

This is a fantastic site. Accessible only by a rig with high clearance, there are great hammock trees, no humans within miles, no road noise- truly remote but with some great amenities! We loved it here and will definitely be back with friends. The host, Wilson, was great and came by to check on us and share some information about the property. The swimming hole was great and there is a fresh spring close by. Just amazing!

It was like having an entire country to explore ourselves. We walked for hours searching the land for animals. We saw over 50 animals including wild hogs, deer, etc.. I would highly recommend it to adventurous seeking people!
