We're a five acre piece of an historic Texas ranch in Southwest San Antonio, just 20-minutes from downtown, sitting along the Medina River. Come for the day or stay the night for some primitive camping. We've got plenty of room for tents, roof-top-tent setups or car/van dry-camping. We’re currently in the building/restoring process, but we’ll have some electrical, drinking water, fire pits, plenty of shade, compost toilets, water in the river, and plenty of good vibes.  Old Herrera Ranch has been in our family since the early 1800's and holds a lot history. A couple of our old buildings, the "jacals", are dated from around the 1830-40's. You'll also see the old "Dance Hall" which is great for hanging out or even some cover if it rains. They say that Santa Anna's army, invading from Mexico, may have crossed through our area on their way to the Alamo. This may be because our part of the river includes some of the more shallow areas of the Medina River. For more information, feel free to take a look at our page on the San Antonio Conservation Society's website https://farmandranch.omeka.net/exhibits/show/blasherreraranch We use Hipcamp to help maintain, preserve, and restore the land my family loves so deeply. We're excited to share it with you and see what all we'll be able to do. Thank you in advance for your support! Coming soon: picnic tables, benches, outdoor cooking area, South Texas Jungle Gym, Pink Elephant Cantina (BYOB), and more!We're a five acre piece of a historic Texas ranch in Southwest San Antonio, just 20-minutes from downtown, sitting along the beautiful Medina River.

This place is short from magical! we have the pleasure of having it all to ourselves due to how things panned out with the schedule and we have never had the peace like we had here! Highly recommend looking up the history of the place and taking a walk to the river every morning. The flowers and butterflies are abundant and you’ll find something new everytime.

Nice little spot. Had a little issue with the other tenants not having their dogs on a leash but that’s not anything Dax’s did. He was an awesome host and made sure we had what we needed. Really enjoyed the river and the eclipse. Thank you Dax for being a great host. We will definitely be back.

Slice of paradise
Old Herrera Ranch is a great place to camp. The host, Dax, is very friendly and proud of this piece of paradise that’s been in his family so long. Very peaceful and beautiful. The small beach down at the river has huge cypress trees and is gorgeous. You will also find the old cantina , dance hall and jacals very interesting. Don’t miss out!
