Welcome to the Cibolo Gardens Nature Preserve! Just 22 miles from downtown San Antonio, not far off of US 281, our educational homestead is an excellent place to camp. We’ve transformed 45 acres of what was once an active rock quarry just 15 years ago, into a healthy, regenerative, green space as well as an event and training venue. Our venue is nestled in the middle of the rapidly growing suburban landscape around us in north San Antonio. We purchased the property five years ago from good friends who had already started the mission of revitalizing the land. Today, 39 of the acres are in “preservation” status, which means that we are letting the natural micro-ecosystems that have developed from what remained of the quarrying activities 15 years ago to develop on their own. We hope to always keep this acreage in that status for generations to enjoy. The remaining 6 acres is wooded, where we live, have gardens, farm animals and where we interface equitably with our environment. Feel free to simply relax in the shade of the persimmon and juniper trees. Or, to add some activity to your stay, hike the varying terrain on our 45 acres, hunt for fossils in the dry creek bed, break out your tree / plant id books, or watch the wildlife (even if it’s just the chickens).  Refresh by taking a dip in the above ground pool, or wash off in the outdoor cob shower.  [Please be advised that besides campers, we also host homesteading, wilderness survival and herbal medicine classes on our site.  So, you might have company, but you'll definitely have room for privacy. ]  If you want to explore more Hill Country, nearby attractions for outdoor fun include the Guadalupe River State Park (16mi), Guadalupe Canoe Livery where you can rent tubes and kayaks on the river (16 mi) or Natural Bridge Cavern (17mi).

Wonderful place
This is one of the best camping spots I’ve been to in a long time where it actually feels like camping. meaning there is no huge lodge that makes you feel like you’re at band camp, just you and your surroundings . Everything is set up so that nature can show its true beauty… My wife and son(1yo) had so much fun 10/10 would recommend!!!

Five stars! Camping on David’s land was fantastic. The presence of dogs on the property added to the charm, and the outdoor kitchen made cooking a delight. With great amenities and surrounded by peaceful nature, it was the perfect escape.

Great site, great host!
This was a great experience! Lots of nice amenities like a camp kitchen, shower, electric power for charging battery packs in central areas, very nice tent site locations. David was a terrific host, very friendly and knowledgeable, he showed us around the site and was present to give information about the campground and the area. We highly recommend it and will certainly stay there again if/when we are in the area.

David was very accommodating especially for a first time camper. The land is beautiful with an awesome backstory, and I’m definitely coming back again.

Our host David was very nice showing us around the property when we arrived. We had no problem finding the campground using his directions. Convenient to San Antonio I would recommend his place to my friends.
