2024 total eclipse
In the path of the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse.
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).

Great spot for our 3 month old baby to experience her first camping trip. Lots of great amenities, beautiful sunsets and peaceful energy. Everything was also very clean and well taken care of, thanks David!

TWO THUMBS UP!!
David our host was very laid back and extremely accommodating. The provisions provided (field kitchen, hot shower, compost toilet) was a great resource while still giving you the feeling of ruffing it. I would highly recommend. The only concern is the large amount of dead foliage is an increase fire Hazzard. (Mother Nature's fault not David's!)

I had a great time here. David was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the campsite and the amenities. It would've taken me a few days to make use of everything there was to offer. The fossil tour was fun and interesting and I left with a unique souvenir of my trip.

Unique renatured quarry stay
Campsites are nicely spread around so you have some privacy. Some sites have table/chairs and some do not. Most are walk in from parking. The outdoor kitchen was great for us; we made dinner and breakfast there. Really appreciated that we didn’t have to bring all our own kitchen equipment! We were two adults and we really enjoyed the fossil tour - so fun finding them and being able to take a few home. We also did a little hiking around the quarry and enjoyed visited the pigs. David was super helpful and his dogs are sweet. I’d definitely go back!
