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.

Will stay again
The Forest 1 camp site was a very chill spot. Enough space between you and everyone else. BYO everything to ensure a successful stay. Communication with the hosts was very easy.

Right on
Good spot, river was nice. My only thing is that the campsites are pretty close to each other so you don’t have a lot of privacy and can hear everything the other site is saying. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay and would go back! Thanks Sparrow Bend

Nice campground but lots of barking
The site was okay, not as much privacy as expected at slot 2. The river was good and met some good company. But, the neighbors had an actual dog kennel outside and we got barely any sleep. We slept to the sounds of barking.

Awesome camp site. Amenities like the toilet were a bonus. View at the river was great! Definitely recommend.
