Fantastic SoTX Camping
Outstanding place to camp. Clean, peaceful, and beautiful. Directions and communication were top notch, and hosts were super nice and helpful. Would stay there again and again when in the area.

Yes, still a TX Paradise
This was our second time here - au naturel, primitive, spacious, away from the city is just the best camping and put us in sync with mother nature. Davinia and her family are great to communicate with and very welcoming. We will surely be back, thank you very much!

Primitive camping at its best!
This is our new favorite camping spot! The site we stayed at was nice. The area was big with plenty of shade. The river was the best part. Plenty of water to swim, kayak or float around. We are already planning our next trip. Hopefully soon! Also, the host were great and replied back very fast with any questions.

Perfect for off-grid / seclusion
Nice spot for off grid / secluded style camping. Did not get to choose our spot but that would not keep me from recommending. We had roughly a 30-40 yard hike through brush / sand (cleared a trail from overgrowth) to get to the water. But unlike other areas this place has a really deep part of the Guadalupe River so it was flowing nicely enough to keep it fresh and shoulder deep in some spot. Actual camp site was very shaded, had trash can, fire ring, and nice table right on top of an embankment giving a nice view of the river. I think ours was site #3. Nice hosts. Very private area. We hiked roughly 1/4 mile up river to float back down to our site. Also plenty of fish.

We had such an incredible stay! Savanah and Davinia were awesome hosts and made us feel very welcome. The campsite was in order and absolutely perfect for us. It was very private; we did not see any other campers during our stay. The river was great for swimming and keeping cool. We highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be back.

Truly a TX Paradise!
We just had a most wonderful holiday weekend! My husband and I grew up in TX and are very experienced outdoor enthusiasts - this is a gem spot on the Guadalupe River, especially if you are into primitive camping which is exactly our style. This is nature at its best with great wildlife viewing, and the beautiful Guadalupe to swim and relax by. There was barely any road noise or other campers compared to being at a TX state or county park, we were stunned by the natural state and seclusion of the place. The campsite is well thought out and cared for - the hosts were very kind and communicative. How generous of them to let campers access this amazing land to connect with nature! Thank you so much, we will be back for sure.

Father’s Day Weekend Getaway
Our site was amazing. It was a little drive back to help seclude you even more. Standing on the ridge you can see down to the Guadalupe River! There was even a path down to it. We pitched a tent and it was like home. There was a barrel for trash (bring your own liner), a picnic table, several little stakes to hang things from, along with a small pit that had a grate. And a rake and shovel were provided for any additional assistance clearing the campground. Excellent spot with tons of trees. It wasn’t always shaded but that was okay! It was perfect for hanging out clothes from a dip in the river. Bring your own rope. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for a weekend getaway. And if you forgot something, no worries, there is an ice house and a Dollar General right up the way! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Naturally beautiful primitive camping with the entire river front to ourselves. Davinia checked in multiple times with tips before the stay. Wood and a fire pit were provided along with a picnic table, fish cleaning station, and super clean land. Kayaks were easy to pull down to the river and paddle around, even with the moving water, and fishing was good…just make sure your line weight is strong. Just to say, I wasn’t ready to go home after this weekend!

This is our second visit and it was as amazing as the first! We always enjoy site 1 and the amazing shade and breeze at camp. We can’t wait to return for another relaxing couple days in nature.

Could not ask for more, awesome
The host were awesome, there was a wind storm later that week and they worked really hard to get the campsite ready for us. They brought us right down to the site and made sure that we had everything we needed. Had a wonderful time, lots of shade, and lots of flat ground to camp. Little walk down to the water, River was nice and cool a wonderful spot to swim. Would highly recommend camping here, the site is nice and secluded. Great fire ring and cooking setup.

Absolutely perfect… if you are looking for a beautiful place to get in touch with nature, I highly recommended visiting this Hipcamp. The host are very friendly and lead you to your campsite, then you are left to enjoy their little slice of heaven! The views of the river from camp are so calming, the site is very well kept, the tree canopy kept out the harsh June sun and the breeze off the water felt so nice. (Just in case you need to know, the canopy is tall enough to fit a roof top tent under easily) We had a blast playing in the river with our kids, it brought back wonderful childhood memories of me with my parents on the river in New Braunfels, minus having to share it with all of the other crazy tubers! This place in absolutely perfect in my book and I very much look forward to going back soon!

Private, secluded w/ river access!
Beautiful property. Very secluded and private!! Campsite is under the trees with a picnic table, trash barrel and fire pit with a moveable grate over it. Plenty of space. To the right of the campsite there is a sandy pathway down the the water with a rocky beach. It was great to be able to go hang out in the after on a hot Texas day and take the east walk back up to the campsite. If you have cots or something off the ground you could easily camp on the rocky beach on the water (suggest the upstream-side of the beach, it’s larger and way less critters/flies than the downstream side). It’s part of the Guadalupe but it’s so far downstream from the mainstream Guadalupe that you will not see anyone floating down, so even the river part of the site is secluded and private. The site is on a cattle ranch, although you are instructed not to pet them it is fun to drive through the site and check them out, almost like a mini safari ride 😂. We loved it, we will be back for sure!! Thank you!!

Multiple campers with pets
We absolutely loved the private camping experience. We enjoyed a private sand bar and swam in the river. The amenities were awesome and the fire pits were above and beyond awesome. Loved the grill on top and it was well used. We can’t wait to come back.

Perfect Weekend
This has been one of our favorite camping spots to date. We have two dogs that enjoy being out in nature, but also prefer being away from other people/dogs. This camping spot provided our dogs with plenty of land to explore, and we never had to worry about running into other guests or dogs (cows, maybe - but that was expected!) The campsite was well maintained, had a lovely fire pit and easy access to the refreshing Guadalupe River. We also had the entire sandbank to ourselves which was amazing. Host was easy and friendly to communicate with. I would highly recommend visiting this place. We can’t wait to come back!!

Peaceful Camp with Riverside Beach
We were the only campers on the site this weekend, and it felt like our own little slice of heaven! Roaming cattle and lots of wildlife make this a fun adventure. Having the river/beach just down the way is like having the best of both worlds in one place. We will absolutely return!

Best Primitive Campsite Ever
Best camping I’ve ever experienced! From the warm welcome to the private campsite on the river to the perfect weather to the full moon rising on the skyline, it was a perfect, relaxing, and refreshing weekend away. VERY private and VERY primitive which is exactly what we were after. If that’s you too, you need to camp here.
