We welcome you to come enjoy the beautiful outdoors and dark sky on a scenic 110 acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country. This Canvas Bell Tent is in a shady grove of mature Live Oak trees with a gorgeous hillside views and a view of the Blanco River valley. You will need to provide your own bedding. The canvas bell tent has a 12' diameter and is over 8' tall at the center.  Ideal for a couple but easily suitable for four guests.  This campsite is secluded and private making it the ideal place to unwind after a stressful week.  Our property is conveniently located in Blanco, Texas less that 50 miles from either San Antonio or Austin and in the heart of the Texas wine country.  You will enjoy miles of hiking and biking trails, scenic hilltop views, solitude, beautiful spring fed creek, bold sunrises and sunsets, and a brilliant night sky on this property. We have numerous old growth hardwood trees including Live Oaks, Spanish Oaks, Elm, Escarpment Cherry, Black walnut, and Ashe Juniper (cedar) one of which has the largest circumference in Texas. We have a wide selection of native and migratory wildlife that calls this place home including white tail deer, wild turkeys, foxes, bobcats, jack rabbits, road runners, seasonal songbirds and butterflies. We are just minutes away from Blanco State Park and a short drive to Pedernales Falls or Guadalupe River State Parks.

Beautiful location with an amazing sunset! We loved the convenience of the bell tent and short distance to the Blanco river. We absolutely loved hiking exploring around the property. The whole place is so serene. And the hosts were great. Get the jam!

Sunset Hill Bell Tent was fantastic - we didn’t even use or need the tent, as we brought a little pop-up of sorts, but we rented the spot for the solitude, views, and to use the awesome deck and Adirondack chairs as a living room. We had our three dogs in tow and enjoyed walking on trails on the property.

The time and effort and care put into building these sites was evident at every turn - we were thoroughly impressed and feel lucky we’re only an hour and change away in Austin.

Bonus: Real Ale Brewery is within striking distance of the property!

Peace & quiet, views, r&r - we will be back!

Bill’s land was gorgeous! Amazing sunsets, beautiful hiking trails and close to Pedernales State Park. The bell tent was perfect for my husband and our two crazy heelers.

3 Dry Wells Ranch is a perfect camping spot, and I look forward to returning! Communication with Bill was clear and convenient. I met him at the main house, and he quickly showed me to the Sunset Bell tent. The tent is incredibly spacious (with short-carpet floor), views are gorgeous, and the hammock swing is a great touch! The property is very convenient to Blanco State Park, downtown Blanco, and Johnson City. I was in Blanco for a bike ride so my time at 3 Dry Wells Ranch was brief, but I'll be returning soon for a camping-focused stay!

This was our second trip to 3 Dry Wells Ranch, and we loved it even more! The sunsets never disappoint here!

We fit two couples and a pup in the tent easily with plenty of room. The weather in Blanco is beautiful at this time of the year. We were tempted to swim at the nearby Blanco State Park.
