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 couple restaurants, a pub 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.

The property is beautiful and our host was as accommodating as she could be, despite our roll of the dice in weather. Will definitely be returning to experience this amazing place in good weather. If all of our guest had vehicles that could handle a muddy road we would have been better suited to stay. The host was very understanding and nice. Also, the ranch dog was a ray of sunshine on our rainy trip and rode out the storm as long as we did. Thanks Bjorn !

Lowgear was exactly as described! This rural area is quiet and dark, the river is gorgeous, the birds and flowers were everywhere, and the sites are well-spaced. Logan and co. were so generous in showing us their animals and talking about their farm and the area. We had a great time. Thanks!!

It was overall a great experience. There’s lots to explore on the land. I personally felt like it should be a little more maintained for the purpose of business.

Great spot quiet
Nice peaceful quiet spot next to a river with no other campers nearby compared to state parks. Easy river access, pet friendly, with a view of horses.
