Hidalgo Falls Hideaway

11 sites · Tents13 acres · Navasota, TX
The 13-acre park at Hidalgo Falls is owned by the Texas Rivers Protection Association. It is located on the Brazos River about eight miles from Navasota.TRPA ownership of this property guarantees access to this popular and unique river resource. For whitewater paddlers, it offers a class II rapid with numerous surfing waves, holes, eddy lines and play spots. For flatwater paddlers, it provides a convenient and secure access point for float trips along a very historic stretch of the Brazos as well as a place to learn swiftwater techniques and rescue skills. In the four miles downstream from the rapid archaeologists have unearthed mastodon bones from the riverbank, and the remains of  an early 20th century lock and dam system still loom large in the river. All of this is just upstream from Washington on the Brazos State Park, birthplace of the republic of Texas. Stephen F. Austin is said to have crossed the river often at Hidalgo Falls. It is also said that you could tell if you had a knowledgeable riverboat captain if he could get his boat upstream of the rapid and back down before the river level dropped stranding the boat upriver near Millican or Port Sullivan.The fast moving water and play features of the rapid are rarities in this part of the state. During the year volunteer fire departments in the region use the falls for training firefighters in swiftwater rescue.A 2 mile hike and bike trail are being worked on now and will soon open. Volunteers are always welcome!

Firefly Ranch

5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents22 acres · Bleiblerville, TX
The property borders a small creek and has abundant trees, and wildlife. Beautiful views from every vantage with a high field on one half of the property and a low bottom land near the creek where there are many options for a relaxing, private stay. Chose big sky or a more secluded spot. Incredible wildflowers on display in the spring. The property is not bordered by close neighbors or dense housing, just more land so sunsets and rises are wonderful and open. Low ambient light pollution at night means the stars are very bright (and so are the fireflies)! If tent camping, please do not bring glass containers, also you must pack out all garbage and waste.

Sandhill Farms Tent Camping

1 site · RV13 acres · Hearne, TX
Learn more about this land:Come enjoy the serenity of central Texas where the loudest noises are the coyotes in the distance, the cicadas at night, the occasional donkey or cow calling their friends. We have over 30 fruit trees started and amazing areas to watch the sunset from our hill over the river bottom, the birds, or a few deer (if the weather is right and you are quiet enough). We also have true Texas Longhorns, probably the biggest/longest horns you have ever seen (they come from prize stock) but are gentle enough for you to hand feed (only allowed with help of hosts for your safety).

Colorado River Camping

12 sites · RVs, TentsSmithville , TX
The land has been mainly used by ranchers. It is a simple small getaway. Kirtley used to be a thriving city but once they took the post office away, they attached it to Smithville. Luckily, it hasn't lost its quaint nature. There is a stretch of river property that is normally inaccessible to the general public, but you can access it here where it still lives in its pristine nature. If you look for it you can also find a lot of petrified wood. Learn more about this land:This listing is best for people who want to fish, kayak or Canoe on the river.  Please read all this information to the bottom of the page.  Note that this is primitive camping ( if you don't know what that means look it up). so no toilets, no drinking water. There is trash service. Walmart sells Reliance double doodie bags with bio gel for restroom solutions.  If you want to be right on the river bank, the island is the best place for you to camp. (up stream). You would need to bring a kayak or canoe to access the islands. I have kayaks (3) for rent. I do also rent the house on the property with showers and toilets but you must make prior arrangements.   You can pitch your tent on the property (it is fenced in to keep wildlife out an it is not directly on the riverbank). You do have access to the river.  The river access is not a beach. The camp site is not directly on the river but very close.  2 minute walk to the river. This place is best for people who want to be on the river fishing, kayaking or canoeing.   I have three kayaks to rent if needed.  No refunds on kayaks or on rain days.  The river levels changes constantly and so does the weather.  Bring water tubes, kayaks or canoes. There is an island that you can explore or spend time on if you kayak a short distance up stream. Wear a life vest for your safety and water shoes. If you want to spend the day on an island beach you must bring or rent a kayak, You can put kayaks in up stream and end up at the property if you have a way to transport the kayaks. I have 3 Kayaks to rent 35 each if needed for the day.  Also bring a shade tent, a hat and sunscreen in the summer.  A headlamp is recommended. Check in before it gets dark. Sometimes the grass is a bit long when it has rained a lot and it can not be mowed unless the ground is dry.  Please do not leave glass or trash cans n the field. Everyone who stays must pay the fee.  I have someone checking on the property and the vehicles on the property.  Please be respectful to others camping and do not go onto other people's private property.  Let me know when you are close to the property and when you leave.  I require a picture of you removing your trash so that you do not get charged for leaving trash.  The river is so beautiful and very much not commercialized.   The area you are entering is not accessible to the general public because it is all private property.
