Sparrow Bend River Retreat is a beautiful 8 acre multi-site vacation rental property with camping, RV sites and 2 vacation homes. With a private 300yard stretch of the crystal-clear, spring fed MEDINA RIVER your party will spend the day exploring its majestic cliffs and coves, paddling/floating the river (tubes and kayaks for rent), splashing in the shallows, playing yard games on the lawn or sunbathing on a massive bolder. Enjoy a delicious and memorable dinner in Lakehills (15min), Bandera (20min) or Boerne (25min). Or stay in and grill out over the fire, or at the provided grill. Camp sites each have a customized picnic table for you convenience. Spend you evening sharing laughs around the provided firepit as you take in the dazzling canopy of stars. (Firewood available for sale) Our family has always dreamed of hosting a place for families and friends to come enjoy nature however we would have never dreamed of finding a property as unique and beautiful as this. A lake when the water is high, a beautiful river when the waters low. All crowned by a majestic limestone bluff, complete with boulders, coves and endless room for adventures. This land was once a part of a wagon trail along the river and, if you're lucky, you can still find arrowheads along the paths. The property is gated with a high privacy fence along the neighboring borders for security.

Beautiful and peaceful spot! Hard to find pet friendly camping with water around here without a ton of people, this was absolutely perfect for me and my pups. Very relaxing - would definitely stay again.

Forest 2
Relaxing, comfortable and fun camp
Forest 2 was the best camping ground in my opinion. It was private, surrounded by trees, and close enough to the amenities and parking lot to make the stay even more comfortable. The river was a short walk down hill and it was beautiful. Lots of boulders to climb and splash around.

Nice place!
This is a beautiful place! The summer heat was a bit crazy but that has nothing to do with the site. It was pretty peaceful, other than being able to hear the shower doors banging when the wind would take them randomly. However the showers and AC restrooms were amazing! The River was nice and everyone had a good time. Will definitely be staying again!
