Riverbed Primitive Camp
My girlfriend and I camped near the river bed and enjoyed the views, the animals, and exploring the property. The camp is about 45 minutes from enchanted rock, which we hiked for a day, and also 30 minutes from Llano where we picked up supplies and swam in the river. All around we had a great weekend, and Maggi, Tim, and Noah are excellent hosts! Thanks again!

Hill country at its best
Upon entering I was greeted by the host. They were very familiar with the land and after describing the kind of site I was looking for they guided me to a perfect spot. This land is in the heart of the Texas hill country so you are surround by stunning geography and wildlife. It is a dream camp for hunters or those looking for adventure on an ATV. I’m looking forward to returning.

Basically Family
We had an incredible time with Maggi and crew at the ranch. The land was beautiful, plenty of camping spots and room to spread out, great hike up to the plateau with tremendous views. Everyone was helpful and working hard to put on a great event. It was all that and more! The campfire gatherings and music each night really were the icing on the cake. Extremely welcoming and inclusive, we felt right at home immediately. Had no idea we'd travel all the way from Portland, Oregon and I find family in rural Texas.

Eclipse camp
We came out to camp for the eclipse. All of the staff and volunteers were super friendly and very helpful. The Porta potties were very clean. There was firewood, laying all around for you to use. Maggi the Ranch owner and camp host was amazing. She is very friendly, kind and knowledgeable about the land. You can basically do whatever you want as long a you have respect for the land and animals. I would definitely recommend enjoying this magical place.
