Please confirm your stay by web or email, no calls. Just email us and stop on by. Check in during OPEN saloon hours only (check Facebook for most up to date hours of Bankersmith TX). Very casual. Guests can enjoy this Texas Original with concerts, festivals most Saturdays (google The Best of Texas Festivals) or even just by stopping by for live music (played Wed-Sun), GREAT FOOD and a cold drink. The Saloon and Restaurant is open Wed-Sun (Cowboy Church on Sundays)! Campers are of course allowed to bring in food or drink on the campgrounds but it may be easier to enjoy the food from Bankersmith’s Restaurant and Full Bar literally across the street!

Porky Thursdays with fresh off the pit Ribs and BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches. A Dance Hall, Ghost Sightings and whole lot more (even Fried Bull Testicles)!

Porta John in field of camp site as well. Again, no need to call us. Just email us and stop on by.Welcome Home! Farm rules: You are in Texas. Fences and Gates are God's way of saying, 'Respect Private Property'. You do not want to go over, under, through one of our fences without our permission or open a gate without our explicit permission. EVER. Do not enter animal pens or put your hand or arms through fences. Do NOT allow dogs to go in, or to bark at animals. We have animals on the other side of these fences that will kill both man and beast. We keep our gates locked for everyone's safety. Never open a gate without a certified employee. (Petting through the fence is NOT allowed!) Do not feed anything to our furry friends. We welcome ya'll like family, but that means respecting our property and animals like they are your own. Be smart and courteous and keep all gates locked and everyone stays happy.If there is anything that would make your stay more comfortable please feel free to ask for Bobby or Kayla at the Saloon. We'd put our numbers here so ya'll could text but HipCamp does not allow it. We are here to serve!Please remember that check out is at 12 PM. If you need longer just inform us! Population: you {for the duration of your stay} PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Maintaining 85 acres etc is NOT cheap. Plus, the added admin of bookings, cancellations, folks on property is an expense of time and $. THE ONLY THING WE ASK: If you have a good time here PLEASE leave a review and a few photos on YELP AND GOOGLE for GRAPETOWN VINEYARD or BANKERSMITH TX. The reviews on this site, here, are great, but they do little to get the word out to our larger audience. Just check in with us. Closed Mon-Tue. Contact the Host by email for information and reservations. Safari Wine Tours and Farm Tours available on site. We have a great gift shop in the Bankersmith Dance Hall and Saloon. We also have festivals and concerts most Saturdays. The restaurant and bar at Bankersmith is open 5 days a week!

3 Dry Wells Ranch

6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents110 acres · Blanco, TX
We welcome you to come enjoy the beautiful outdoors and dark sky on a scenic 110 acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country. Our family has lived and cared for this unique property since 1976 and we are still here today. We are conveniently located in Blanco, Texas less that 50 miles from either San Antonio or Austin and in the heart of the Texas wine country. Our campsites are next to a spring feed tributary creek which flows year around feeding into the Blanco River just a few miles away or hillside with amazing views of the river valley. You will enjoy the babbling creek, miles of hiking and biking trails, cooling off in the creek, scenic hilltop views, solitude, bold sunrises and sunsets, and a brilliant night sky. We have numerous old growth hardwood trees including Live Oaks, Spanish oaks, Elm, Escarpment Cherry, Black walnut, and Ashe Juniper (cedar) one of which has the largest circumference in Texas. We have a wide selection of native and migratory wildlife that calls this place home including white tail deer, wild turkeys, foxes, bobcats, jack rabbits, road runners, seasonal songbirds and butterflies. We are just minutes away from Blanco State Park and a short drive to Pedernales Falls or Guadalupe River State Park. Note due to an extreme drought in the greater area this year that the spring fed creek and local rivers are currently not flowing. Pray for rain.

Camping in Hill Country guide

Overview

Take most of your expectations about camping in Texas and throw them out the window as you head toward Hill Country. The landscapes, small towns, and culture give this scenic region of central Texas a flavor all its own. Some of the best camping in the state can be found amid the scenery on public lands, in RV parks, and at glamping rentals. Located northwest of Austin and San Antonio, Texas Hill Country incorporates a unique landscape of rollicking hills, colorful fields of bluebonnets, and rippling rivers. Discover the German heritage of the regional setters—which is overlaid with a Texas twang.

Where to go

Eastern & Northern Hill Country

If your camping trip through Texas Hill Country has time for an urban stop, put Austin on your list. The state capital marches to the beat of its own drum with the proud motto “Keep Austin Weird.” This marks the eastern edge of Hill Country. Close to town, McKinney Falls State Park is a must see, notable as a popular swimming hole. Pedernales Falls State Park offers views of the Pedernales River and a tumbling waterfall and over 20 miles of trails for mountain biking. Inks Lake State Park offers recreation on land and water. Colorado Bend State Park provides miles of trails and views of a 70-foot waterfall.

Central Hill Country

Central Hill Country centers around San Antonio and areas north. San Antonio is worth a visit, with the Alamo National Historic Landmark and the River Walk being popular stops. Head out to the smaller towns of Fredericksburg and Boerne to find wineries, live music, and unique personalities. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is one of the most popular stops in Hill Country, renowned for the massive granite dome focal point. Climb to the top to take in the views. It offers tent camping and books well in advance. For easy access for tubing the Guadalupe River, check out Guadalupe River State Park, which has four miles of riverfront. Camping sites are available for both tents and RVs with hookups.

Western Hill Country

Western Hill Country gets farther from the urban centers. Bandera and Kerrville are small towns in the region. Located on the Frio River, Garner State Park is one of Hill Country’s most popular camping spots, with hiking trails and swimming holes.
