2024 total eclipse
In the path of the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse.
. Twisted Oaks is located on 20 acres of tree lined Texas Hill Country nestled in the heart of San Marcos. I've been here over 33 years. We have 10-15 campsites all named after the colors in a rainbow. We offer rentals of kayaks, coleman camp stoves, triple burner propane very large, mr buddy propane heaters jackery 1000 watt and bluetti 600 watt solar generators or a tent if this your first time. payment for extras can be cash or Venmo. If you have any special needs please feel free to contact me. thanks and hope to see you soon We sell seasoned oak and juniper hardwood. We are a small microbusiness and would really appreciate if you purchase wood here rather than at a large box store. It is your choice but just so you know you will get twice the wood for maybe half the price. We sell a large wheelbarrow load for $20 or half load for $10. Kindling is gratis. Please check the weather forecast before booking. Texas weather can change on a dime. Also if it is raining in Austin or San Antonio it may be bone dry here. We can not be responsible for the weather or your selection of gear. I prefer winter camping with a nice fire and a cup of coffee. We have invested in clothing and gear to withstand below freezing temps. When campers book we go through a routine to make sure all sites are ready for YOU. There are times were we have had to change or modify our plans to accommodate our "guests" . Changing dates will incur a small fee. Please be fair. Our cancellation policy is strict and it it set as such to protect campers and host alike. We set a high standard for our camp but this is to ensure that all campers will have a great experience. Pay attention to the rules. Using common sense is what we ask. Treat our property as you would have us treat your place...it's really that simple. Hope this does not scare you away. Read the reviews and you will see the common thread is that we are nice helpful folks. See you soon!

Amazing place to chill kick back and drink a few relax some of the best night's sleep of my life. John the owner is a super cool guy who will talk with you until the wheels fall off or leave you alone whichever y'all prefer. Super easy camping spaces where you can park your car and have your tent within 25 feet or less for glamping, or even more better super cooler spots that you can actually get the full carry your water and everything else u need iN roughneck camping experience. Planning on going back with friends and family on multiple trips for a night or two or even the four or five day weekend perfect location in between San Antonio and Austin the water AKA San Marcos River is a stone throws away. John has tubes kayaks all kinds of water adventure stuff for rent, even a golf cart to take you and your gear down to a private, acres away from anything human or City Life, full camping experience. Get there with at least an hour or two of daylight to find your perfect picturesque space and to meet with John and get the rundown, also you'll have time to set up camp properly. Definitely check out twisted oaks maybe I'll see you there! BAM
