Al, Jennifer, and all the staff at Al’s hideaway are very nice and friendly. The primitive site is great. Surrounded by trees with enough clearing for a few cars and tents. Tent stakes went in easily and stayed well.

We filled the fire ring with local deadfall wood. It burns quickly so stock up on plenty to last the night. Consider bringing a hatchet or saw to cut bigger pieces.

There is some road noise and you can definitely hear sounds from the pavilion, but with a little music of your own those sounds are not noticeable.

You should know that Al’s mostly caters to cabin and RV campers. There are a couple of cool teepees you can rent as well. There’s a pool and hot showers.

Overall it was ok, but was kept awake by incessant dog barking. Maybe I was dreaming but I thought I heard a donkey braying and maybe geese?

Al and Jennifer's place was really relaxing. Al gave us a grand tour and was a truly unique character. A shame we only got to spend one night there. We had the pick of any campsite we wanted and it was totally private. Exactly the Texas experience we were looking for!

My husband and I wanted to get away for a weekend to get the camping experience in Texas. Al allowed us to be in a secluded area because we asked for it and everyone was generally kind. It was a good getaway for sure, however if you’re expecting to swim in a river/lake or have the camping experience then this is more of a “glamping” situation. (There is lake Medina about 20 min away but it’s honestly not that great of an experience unless you have a jet ski or boat.)
Also - just be aware that people stay out in the main area till 11:30 pm most nights talking very loudly and screaming/singing. It didn’t bother us much however if that’s annoying to you be aware of it! They said they have a “swimming area” but in reality it’s a small pool you’d find in a backyard and it was pretty much packed all day so we didn’t have much to do during the hot summer day.

All in all it was a good experience and would probably go again when it’s not in the middle of summer, but would just rent out a cabin instead to at least have some AC!

Nice hosts, awesome site! We wish we had more days to stay here. We slept well and were sad to leave after just one night without being able to explore everything that the campground had to offer.

My friend and I had a girls camping weekend at Al’s Hideaway and we had a great time!. I haven’t camped since I was a kid so this was a great place to reacquaint myself with it all. The property is beautiful and the people are friendly. We were able to primitive tent camp but still had access to amenities if needed. The pavilion/kitchen/pool/shower area was a nice place to cool off and chit chat with others. The new office/camp store was a lifesaver when I needed to get more ice. My German Shepherd, Charlie, even made some new friends. I really appreciated being able to bring him with me everywhere on the property and he really appreciated the yummy treats he was given. I am definitely coming back with my son as soon as I can.
