Solitude and room to explore await you at Bluff Creek Wilderness Preserve on 67 acres near Paige, TX.  No house nearby, no small backyard, no dense campsites, just you, the gorgeous tall elms and oaks, the wildlife, and nearly 1 mile of clear, red-sandy creeks meandering through the property that run most of the year (except late summer).

There are only a few campsites scattered throughout the entire Preserve so you will truly feel secluded. This Shady Oaks camp site is nicely located at the woods edge, with the shade of tall live oaks around you and a nice view of the field to the north which allows the breeze to come in.  Parking is only a few steps away but also blocked by the trees to further the feeling of being out in nature and away from it all.

There is some solar lighting, a fire pit with a swivel grill for cooking, and a few chairs.  Down a little path there is also a dry composting toilet exclusively for this site.

NOTE: there WAS a pop-up gazebo at the site (you can see it in some of the pics of our previous campers) but we had to take it down.

Gathering firewood IS allowed, as long as it's dead and fallen.  Bring a saw!

When not hanging out at camp you can explore the 50 acres of woods, the 17 acres of grasslands, the larger Bluff Creek, and the smaller Tributary Creek.  Bring your kayak or canoe If you want to paddle down Bluff Creek, your telescope if you want to stargaze at the dark sky, your kite to catch the wind in the field, or your binoculars for birdwatching.

We had a great time. The campsite was very nice. FYI the gazebo (seen on pics.) is not there anymore. Andrea was very responsive and helpful when we had questions during our stay. We will be back, but next time we will pick a campsite we can park right next to.

What a great stay. We got to meet the hosts and they are amazing. Always accommodating to our every need and very nice couple who constantly are making sure we have what we need. Can’t wait to try the other campsite by the creek next time the creek has water in it. We will be back again.

First time primitive camping. We were actually the only ones in this campsite which we loved. 67 acres all to ourselves. The hosts Andrea/Dimitri were so helpful!! They made sure we were accommodated properly . We got there and everything was touched up for us before arriving. The new composting toilet setup was nice too, we truly appreciated all the instructions we printed for us step by step for the stay. The gazebo also worked great during the night for a nice relaxing time with the solar energy patio lights in there. We were able to roam around the whole property and that was nice. Overall and So I won’t go on and on we will be returning maybe later on when it’s not as hot but then again is Texas! Check it out for yourself!
