The Navasota River Ranch

14 sites · RVs, Tents600 acres · Navasota, TX
The Navasota River Ranch is a 600 ac parcel of land bounded by more than a mile of the Navasota River on its west side and two tributary creeks on its north and southeast sides. The river bottom is wild and untamed, while the rest is rolling hills reminiscent of the prairie that once greeted settlers. Nearby is Bryan-College Station home of Texas A&M University To the west on Hwy 105 is Washington on the Brazos State Park. This is the location where delegates gathered to hastily draw up a declaration of independence before joining the Runaway Scrape to avoid capture and execution by the advancing Mexican Army. Farther down the road is the famous Blue Bell creamery in Brenham. The tour and ice cream are well worth the trip. On the property are miles of Jeep trails excellent for off road and 4WD vehicles. Guests might prefer hiking along these trails or strike out on foot trails and game trails. Thanks to the hunters who have come for the deer and feral hogs over the years there are numerous observation structures for viewing wildlife up close, or just enjoying the solitude of the deep woods. Three ponds offer bass and perch fishing from the bank or bring your own boat. And then there is the Navasota River...

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!

The Dam Spot

2 sites · Tents3 acres · Somerville, TX
Welcome to The Dam Spot, named so for it's location close to the Lake Somerville dam and for the beaver dam on the property! It's right on highway TX-36 about halfway between Houston and Austin, close to Brenham and College Station, just south of Somerville, and within just a few minutes of Lake Somerville by car. Right now, our property is set up for primitive camping only. Bring all your own supplies. There are plenty of areas for you to pick from to set up camp. Don't forget to bring your boat, jet skis, or kayaks too so you can head out for a day on the lake! The road noise from the highway can be a bit annoying, but lively chatter with friends and family next to a crackling campfire drowns that out some. See if you can catch a glimpse of Buck working on his beaver dam near the southeast corner of the property, or explore along the creek to the natural tree root bridge to walk over to the other side of the creek. If you want to get away for a day trip, head south over to Brenham where you can tour the Blue Bell ice cream factory or go east to College Station to visit Texas A&M and catch a game at Kyle Field. Of course, Lake Somerville is just a few minutes away, so bring your boat, jet skis, or kayaks for a day out on the water. We recently purchased this property after "the year of which we do not speak" for our own family getaways close to the lake and we're super grateful for the opportunity to share it with you. Our place may not be perfect but we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks for checking out The Dam Spot!

Don't worry, it's about a mile to the nearest little country grocery store and restaurant called "Grand Pops". They serve up some great hamburgers and other home-style meals.

River, stream, or creek camping near College Station with fishing guide

Overview

In College Station, rural Texas beauty meshes with college town vibes—no wonder this is the state's pride and joy. Beyond the sprawling Texas A&M University, there are plenty of spots to experience the outdoors.

Cast a line on the Brazos River, cruise across rolling farmsteads, or hike along a sparkling lake. With more than 90 parks, Bryan College Station doesn't lack green space.

Ready to set up camp? State parks, private campgrounds, and RV parks give you plenty of camping options around Aggieland. Imagine pitching your tent on a ranch, farm, or private lakeshore for a taste of Texas' wide open spaces.

Speaking of open spaces, Lake Somerville State Park is a true local treasure. Cruise the 11,000-acre lake, or fish for largemouth bass and crappie. Onshore, you find 40 miles of trails for hiking and biking. You can also paddle Nails Creek or enjoy horseback riding along the Lake Somerville Trailway.

Somerville has both developed and rustic campsites, must of which are on the north shore's Birch Creek unit. Pro Tip: If you need to stay connected, head to the park office for free Wi-Fi.

Lake Bryan is another Brazos Valley oasis. Get stoked about boating, fishing, and paddling the lake (kayak and canoe rentals are a go!) Campsites here come equipped with tent pads, picnic tables, and outdoor grills.

With Texas A&M in its city limits, College Station is a popular destination during the fall football season. The tailgating is a blast, but the crowds can make nabbing a campsite tough. Luckily, this Texas gem boasts mild weather for great camping year round.
