Come for the day. Stay for the stars!!! Bring yourself, your family and your friends too experience what our family has been sharing together for the last four generations. Sit underneath our giant 600+ year old Live Oaks and imagine all the settlers and Native Americans who stopped in the shade here along the banks of The Colorado River. We have 140 acres of land to explore. Old pecan orchards, cattle pens, open fields, giant trees and half a mile of the Colorado River to access. While visiting you can expect to see and experience native flora and wildlife. Don't forget your binoculars! People enjoy flying kites, picnicking, camping, hiking, nature study, radio controlled devices, rock hounding (surface hunting only, no digging allowed), fishing, kayaking, swimming or wading in the water( depth of water varies and may drop off without warning, rocks are also underwater and not visible at all times), observing ranch work, riding bicycles or hoverboards, feeding our cattle and goats (only our special "cookies" or approved foods please), walking their leashed pets, collecting firewood to burn, sitting around our communal fire pit and stargazing while checking out the visible Milky Way. Escanaba Bend is a fully operating and working cattle ranch. We raise our livestock kindly from birth thru end of life, with the goal of producing happy, healthy and natural beef cattle. We are sure you'll find something here that'll make your heart smile. We look forward to hosting and meeting you soon! -Sara and Family ******YOUR STANDARD CHECK-IN MUST HAPPEN NO LATER THAN 8PM.

Beautiful location!! This is my first time using HipCamp and staying somewhere that wasn’t a state park here in Texas. It was an awesome first experience!! The host was polite and the camp site was very easy to get to! Beautiful Oak trees and the Colorado river, what more could you ask for?!

We really enjoyed two nights camping on Sara's land. The farm animals, open space, and beautiful night skies were a hit with the kiddos, there's plenty of space between sites, the people of the farm are very friendly. Thanks for hosting Sara!

Wonderful Host
This was an awesome place. Sara and her family were very welcoming. It is an operating ranch so enjoyed the cows, goats and other animals. Was very nice and quiet. Thank you very much.

Bucolic Adventure
I loved tent camping on Sara's land. It exemplifies the word "bucolic" in every sense: rolling green pastures, farm animals, starry nights, little to no noise beyond the occasional cow moo. We stayed underneath a huge old oak tree with a lot of shade, not far from the Porta-Potty. There is access to water, and wi-fi if you can figure out the password. Sara is very accommodating, and lives on site to see to your needs. Although we chose to set up in a pasture, there are also other sites to choose from. Also, we were within 15 miles or so to 2 small town, both of which had all the amenities of civilization.
