Book 12+ Acres for Group Glamping

1 site · Lodging13 acres · Pleasanton, TX
My husband and I fell in love with this property the moment that we turned "Right" after entering the access gate. There were cows and a very protective Bull. The owner took the cows away after the sale, but he left us with beautiful Mesquite and Spanish Oak and endless possibilities....We want to share this beauty with our guests. Because there are burr grass here and mesquite thorns, we built decks for some of our Glamping Tents. You have a choice of bringing your own gear and setting up on the ground or renting one of our Fully Dressed Glamping Tents that are situated on Decks. We also re-purposed our little rustic cabin and turned it into two luxury bathrooms and a separate fully functioning kitchen. The beauty of our space, is you can bring a group of your Family and Friends and enjoy Secluded Private Camping! 20 miles away you have Choke Canyon State Park. You might think fishing and boating rule at this Texas state park. You'd be right. Cast your line from the shore or a boat to catch largemouth bass and catfish. Pick from hundreds of secluded inlets or coves to find your perfect fishing spot. Return to your campsite at sunset for a hearty dinner of fish filets and hushpuppies. Be aware that fish aren't the only creatures in the water. This lake marks the farthest west that American alligators live in their natural habitat. Don't worry too much, because alligators usually avoid humans and stay away from boats. Pack your binoculars, because birding is popular here. Head to the South Shore unit for special birdwatching trails that wind around the park. Listen for bird calls as they talk to each other or to you. Songbirds and migratory birds make homes near the reservoir. Learn more about this land: Private Camping on over 12 Acres. We will provide Five Tents for either Semi-Primitive camping or Tent Glamping. Beautiful 5 Meter Bell Tent on a deck is available for the Guest that makes the reservation and that Guest will be responsible for all other camp guests.

Camping near Three Rivers guide

Overview

Equidistant from San Antonio and Corpus Christi, Three Rivers has both coast and city within easy reach. There are plenty of good reasons to stay local, though, most notably the Choke Canyon State Park, where camping comes with lake views. Set sail along the Choke Canyon Reservoir or cool off with a swim, try your luck fishing for largemouth bass and catfish, or explore the bird trails where Green Jay and Harris’s Hawk are common sightings. The town’s namesake rivers—Atascosa, Frio, and Nueces—are also bird-watching hotspots and dotted with RV parks and riverfront campgrounds.  

Where to go

South San Antonio

San Antonio, with its bustling River Walk and UNESCO-listed Alamo, is just an hour north of Three Rivers. Campers can check into an RV park close to downtown, but more scenic options lie south of town. Pitch your tent by Calaveras Lake or Braunig Lake, and catch some catfish to cook over a lakeside campfire.  

Hill Country

The rugged peaks and lakes that hem in San Antonio’s northern boundaries mark your arrival in Texas Hill County. Adventurers should head to the Guadalupe River State Park, where river tubing and mountain biking are the activities of choice, while the Government Canyon State Natural Area has walk-in tent campsites surrounded by wilderness. To the east, the Hill Country State Natural Area has trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding, as well as backcountry camping. 

South Coast

The sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico lie just an hour’s drive south of Three Rivers. RV parks and beachside campgrounds pepper the coast around Corpus Christi, where you can fish, kayak, or enjoy water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. There’s camping right on the beach at Mustang Island State Park, while the Padre Island National Seashore is the place to hike through the dunes and spot dolphins and sea turtles along the coast.

When to go

Texan summers are hot and humid, so leave the tent at home and opt for an air-conditioned RV instead. Better yet, plan your camping trip for spring, fall, or winter, when the weather is better suited to outdoor activities. Choke Canyon State Park is busiest during the spring and fall migrations—this is the best time to work through your bird checklist, but campsites can fill up quickly, so book ahead. 

Know before you go

  • There are no direct public transport links to Three Rivers from San Antonio or Corpus Christi. You’ll need your own transportation to get around. 
  • Three Rivers has a selection of shops where you can purchase groceries, camping gear, and fishing supplies. Pick up everything you need in town before heading out to Choke Canyon. 
  • Most Texas state parks require reservations for both day passes and campgrounds, and fishing permits are often required.
