Dustin and Val have an awesome spot right on the river! We loved the shade structure with all the amenities we needed, and we also were happy that they had some kayaks available to rent! The river flowing by is absolutely gorgeous, and we had a blast exploring it via kayak. There is so much privacy and seclusion, and there were truly awesome views all around. This would be a perfect place for a group to get together and enjoy some quality time in nature!

Dustin’s property was easy to get to, close to many things in town, quiet, clean, and secluded. It was the perfect place for our group camping trip. Enough space for a few cars, tents, and extra space for yard games. You do need to bring your own water.

Our dogs loved being able to run around everywhere and taking them down the river on the kayaks to fish was a blast. It was very private and relaxing. Whatever we happened to forget or needed was just down the road in town. The best spot we have been to in a while. We will definitely want to come back again.

Dustin and Val’s property is amazing! It’s just minutes away from I-35, but you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Lush trees await you at the top of the property, and then you make your way down the hill into a riverfront valley. Very private with nice amenities like a fire pit, picnic table, shade structure, and solar lighting. We’ll be back!

The road into the campsite. Beautiful sunrise on the Blanco. Well built fire ring!

This spot was great! Private and secluded and was really lovely to kayak around and listen to the cicadas. Hammocks were a huge plus. Was also nice to spend the last day in San Marcos. Will definitely be back!

This spot is incredible! We had so much space to ourselves with the most perfect shade/picnic spot. Swimming completely alone in the river was beyond magical. The hosts are super responsive, and this place is pristine. Book it! You will absolutely love it!!!
