Get into low gear and enjoy the slow pace and peace of our little working farm on the edge of the hill country. Low Gear Farmstead's 75 acres border the lovely San Saba River, providing campers the opportunity to swim, wade, fish and paddle. Farm animals including dairy goats, chickens, and horses inhabit the property, but wildlife such as deer, wild turkey, ringtail, fox and armadillo is also abundant. Bird watchers will be delighted at the diversity of birds, especially in spring. Don't forget to look up at night as our dark skies provide excellent stargazing on clear nights and a very visible Milky Way. We limit the number of campsites and spread them out so that campers may enjoy privacy and seclusion. Campsites are provided with compost toilets and most sites also have a fire ring. 4WD is not required unless we have had heavy rains, otherwise most vehicles, except very low clearance ones, do fine. The nearest town, Menard, is about a 12 minute drive from the property and has a grocery store, gas stations, a few restaurants restaurants and a bakery. Lovers of history might enjoy visiting the Presidio de San Saba, about 20 minutes from the farm, as well as the historic Pioneers Rest Cemetery in town. Low Gear Farmstead is a safe, welcoming space for queers and POC.

Amazing!
This was an awesome trip, super remote, private, and peaceful. One of the camp dogs (bjorn) stayed with us the whole time and relaxed, great dog super cool to have him around. We rented the canoe and took it out for a trip and was a very nice experience. Could not recommend this place more!

Clean Campsite and Friendly Staff!!
Just returned from a two day visit to Low Gear Farmstead. Logan, the property owner, was communicative throughout the booking process as well as our day of arrival. Marshall, the property handyman, greeted us at the gate and lead us to our extremely clean and well kept campsite. We set up camp and realized we forgot our kitchen utensils back home. A quick text to Logan solved our problem as she was prepared for issues like these and let us borrow some camp kitchen gear for our stay. Jenn, a temp staff member, greeted us at camp on our last day and took my 4 year old son to feed the goats and chickens onsite. She even taught him how to milk them. 10/10 on our stay and we will most definitely be back and share our experience with friends and family. Thank you, Low Gear Farmstead!!

Beautiful property, the best most well behaved ranch dog known as Bjorn. He made the campsite a gem.
