The sky is large and beautiful. The land is true country, with small structures and lots of oaks and openness. Mostly dark at night, especially at the back of the property. Star-gazing! Occasionally can hear vehicles on country highways, but it’s far away not close and only occasional. Wi-Fi is solid, good enough to work remote if you must. Host is very helpful, including steering us to a good vet when one of our pups got sick. Excellent location for day-tripping into small towns and/or Austin and/or San Antonio.

Beautiful, open pasture with thoughtful campsite touches! Dot's spot was one of our favorite sites in Texas! Sweeping views, beautiful trees, lovely facilities and friendly hosts. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We'll be back!

Great RV Spot!
This was a prime location right in the center of Wimberly, San Marcos, and New Braunfels. The hosts were extremely friendly and we would absolutely stay here again in the future. RV hookups are at the very back of the spots so make sure to bring extra long hoses.

Dot's... is the Spot:)
Dorothy, her husband, and their 2 pups greeted us and were very kind when we arrived and we felt super welcome! They showed us to our tent spot and all the amenities. Even offered french press coffee in the morning. Saw lots of wildlife like bison, foxes, deer, and cows!!! The stars were out of this world y'all. Highly recommend Dot's Spot.

Dorothy’s LAND IS INCREDIBLY AWESOM
I really enjoyed my time at Dorothy’s Land! It is an AMAZING space for tent or RV camping! It is very quiet and serene. They have great toilets, fire pits, Kayaks, and an outdoor shower available for use. The HOSTS are SO AWESOME! VERY FRIENDLY and ACCOMODATING! I LOVE LOVE LOVE! YOU WILL TOO! You are welcome to bring your BEASTS - you must control your dogs! I can't recommend this land ENOUGH. YOU WILL LOVE IT!

GreAt camp spot!
We initially booked the rv spot for tent camping so we could hookup our fan, but once Dorothy showed us the tent spot, we were sold! I’m the evening, the longhorns walked up to the neighboring fence. At night, we left the top off and just gazed at stars. What an amazing view.

This site was great! Nice and quiet, plenty of room for RV sites and camping. Close enough to canyon lake, tubing or wimberly. Dot was helpful with info and parking!

We had a lovely stay here! It was very peaceful. Clean toilet. Great for stargazing! Got to see some longhorns. Nice breeze in our tent so we weren't hot at night. And no mosquitos! Dorothy was very welcoming and helpful with our requests. Would stay here again!

Peaceful!
This was a most peaceful camp spot with all the hookups! Only 3 campers on the property. Nice and quiet with lovely breezes through the trees. We even saw a bald eagle when walking through the property!

The most accommodating experience!
Oh my goodness I was just blown away with Dorothy’s hospitality. I’ve always camped at state parks so everything is on the camper. Dorothy knew I would possibly have a friend meet me so she had chairs waiting for me. When I left and came back later there was a cute box of things to make s’mores, she set the fire pit up with everything needed, I had a gallon of water to use for whatever. I will definitely be going back. Everything was clean and not having power or running water wasn’t even an issue. That was my first time camping without amenities but Dorothy made it so inviting.

A little slice of Heaven.
We could not have found a better place. From the moment we arrived we were treated like we knew them forever. We had a welcome bucket at the site. It had first aid kit, water, citronella candle, bug spray etc. The RV sites and tent sites are exceptionally clean. The view is breath taking, the stars at night are romance and enticing. We saw deer, wild turkey, longhorns, humming birds. We got a tour of the property and it was so perfect. You are positioned perfectly to visit San Marcos, New Braunfles, Drippings Springs, Wimberly, Blanco, Canyon Lake and Krause. Gruene. It was perfect.

Dorothy's land was just perfect! This is the second time we've visited. There was firewood, kindling, and smores waiting for us when we arrived. Dot and Reza are the warmest guests - always happy to help with anything we needed.

Camp in peace but close to town
Dot and Reza were wonderful hosts. They made getting settled easy. Camp is in its own area, under shade trees with hookups. Att signal was great. Camp is close to a handful of small towns, plenty to do and see in every direction.

Attentive host, perfect location.
Dorothy was a super attentive host. The sport for our RV was quiet, spacious, shaded and had everything we needed. Cell signal was great for me to attend several meetings via Zoom with full video without a problem. Distance to Wimberly was about 15 minutes, as was the distance to Lake Canyon. Awesome spot!!

We loved staying on Dot’s beautiful land. My partner, our two dogs and I stayed in our 17ft camper here. Such a quiet peaceful spot to enjoy your time in the Canyon Lake area. Close to all the cool nearby spots (Wimberly, Historic Gruene, San Marcos, etc.) Wonderful sunsets, sunrises, and deer watching right from your campsite. There are 6 spots for campers and they all have plenty of room and shade. The tent sites also looked great in a nice big open field. To top it all off Dot is awesome. She was super helpful during our stay and was so kind to check in on us and give us suggestions of things to do. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to come back soon!

Comfortable Camping ⛺️
I only wish I could give Dot’s Spot 6 stars! Great location, not too far off the highway for easy access. Far enough away to relax. Camp sites are great- individual fire pits and benches, area access to a composting toilet and a flushing toilet, and the camp site is well kept and cleared. And, of course, friendly and helpful hosts.

Our group loved this expansive patch of land. We were able to camp while still have the amenities of a nearby restroom. Our dogs loved it and so did we.

Nice, relaxing camp spot!
I loved tent camping on Dorothy's land! The spot was big and private. She was very hospitable and clear with directions. I recommend this place for someone looking to get away to a quiet spot to relax.

Relaxing and beautiful!
This was a great place to stay and get away from it all! Though the tent sites weren’t full you could see they were spaced far apart. There were beautiful trees to camp under or put up a hammock, the sky was clear and beautiful at night! We enjoyed the community campfire pit, it was big and had chairs placed already around it, also if you didn’t build too big of a fire you can sit on the rocks that make up the ring! Dot and R were very kind and helpful, they gave us ideas for fishing locations! We will definitely be coming back to camp!

I don’t even want to leave this review because I don’t want it to be booked next time I go. All kidding aside, this place is amazing, Dot and Rez were awesome. The title of this property describes it perfectly with no exaggeration. If you’re headed this direction give it a try …just don’t take my spot!

Definitely peaceful, loved it.
Dot was a wonderful host. We were greeted at the full hookups site with some wild flowers on a picnic table and supplies to build a fire and protect us from bugs. You are backed up along a fence and there are 5 rv spots. It wasn't super spacious, but it was beautiful and quiet. We were quite happy. If you want to go grab a bite check out Triforks or Milagros. Finally, my sister and her family rented a rv spot next to us but my niece got a fever. They got a rapid covid test and waited for her fever to drop, then joined us. Dot was very accommodating to their last minute changes. Thanks for the relaxing time!
