Site 10 - Secluded Tent Camping
Woody was such a welcoming host with a great campsite that included a community outdoor kitchen, restrooms and showers, and on Saturdays he has a little craft beer bar and live music of which he brews his own beers and plays with various musicians. Such a warming and amazing character! We only got to stay for one night but we are very excited to come back and spend and entire weekend!!

Site 7 The sunset view site
We stay here regularly and it’s always such a treat! They think of everything, each site is private, and it really feels like you’re out in the middle of nowhere with all the amenities you need at your fingertips. Highly recommend!

Site 8 large spread out site
Fantastic place near Lost Maples
Awesome spot, super relaxing and plenty of space for privacy. The place has everything it needs as far as amenities, as well as an outdoor kitchen and hangout area. Woody is a super friendly dude. We went on a camp & hike trip intending to visit Lost Maples and Garner. Lost Maples is incredible, but unfortunately we didn't get to Garner due to the possibility of hail. However, we found out that Woody's place is a brewery, so we were able to spend a bit of the evening hanging out and chatting over a beer before heading back home.

Site 7 The sunset view site
Love this place. Great location
Great large campsite areas to yourself so private. Good facilities with fridge hot shower and clean toilet whilst remaining rustic and characterful in communal area. Woody brewing shed and bar is something else. We love it. Sadly Woody normally only serves beer at weekend and we were unaware of this and disappointed. This campsite is very close to the Frio river and beautiful Garner state park. We had great long daytrip there and loved the trails and swimming. Would recommend particularly weekends if you partake in home brew !!

UTOPIA
Last weekend, my friends and I had the pleasure of staying at Seco Ridge Campgrounds, and it turned out to be a fantastic getaway! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Woody, the host, who was exceptionally welcoming and hospitable. His friendliness set a positive tone for the weekend. Despite some rain, our spirits weren’t dampened. In fact, the rain made the live music sessions even more memorable, as everyone gathered under the shelter, creating a cozy and communal atmosphere. The bands were amazing, playing a variety of genres that had something for everyone. One of the highlights was the locally brewed beer available at the campsite. It was a great way to taste the local flavors and enjoy some truly unique brews that you wouldn’t find in your average store. The conversations with other campers, coupled with good beer and great music, made for an engaging and joyful environment. Overall, Seco Ridge Campgrounds provided a perfect blend of nature, entertainment, and hospitality. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great camping experience with a bit of a twist. We’ll definitely be back for more of their live music weekends!

Site 6 The sunrise view site
This was a nice change of pace from camping at regular state parks. It was only 20 minutes away from Lost Maples and Garner State Park. Campsites were spaced very far apart. The outdoor kitchen came in handy throughout our stay. The host and his wife were really wonderful people to talk to and I enjoyed hearing some of their story. Woody is a brewer and setup a great little nano brewery with a cozy hangout area right next to their Bunkhaus. Every Saturday, locals from town gather and play music and drink beers. Woody has a good singing voice too! We stayed at camp site #6 where we got to watch sunrise just by opening the window in our tent. I’d highly recommend trying this place out. Especially since the state parks away seem to be completely booked most weekends!
