Come and enjoy a quiet, restful time on our 10-acre farm in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Big Oak Campsite is our biggest campsite. At this site Live Oaks tower above you and provide shade all day long. At night cozy up by the firepit or turn on the solar light for a nice ambiance as you roast marshmallows and listen to the wildlife around you. Expect to hear donkeys, chickens, peacocks and see lots of wildlife such as, white tail deer, axis deer and wild birds such as, painted bunting, scarlet tanager, scissor tails and many more.

It is just a short drive to Boerne, Bandera, Helotes and 40 min from San Antonio. The Hill Country State Natural Area is nearby where you can enjoy hiking and horseback riding, and if you are looking to get on the water you are only minutes away from Medina Lake for fishing, boating, and swimming.

Feel free to explore the wooded campground. Keep in mind that you are able to see our home from this campsite during the day.

We had a wonderful time camping here on Ryan's land. Very peaceful, with room to spread out and relax. There is water cooler with clean water, a nice port-a-potty, a big picnic table and fire ring. We enjoyed walking around his scenic property to explore.

As a host, Ryan is top in my book! The place was so well kept and clean with a bunch of added things to make guests feel at ease while camping on his grounds. Clean place to go to the bathroom, extra water for guests, and lights that make fireside camping at night so dreamy! I’m definitely keeping this site on my list of options the next time I go camping!

Booked for 3 nights the night before, and everything was set up when we arrived. We were greeted and given a tour of the property, it's big enough to wander around, plenty of space for privacy if you're with a few people. There are enough trees around that you could hang a few hammocks, but the spot right at the entrance is perfect to catch the sunrise from your floating bed.

At night the stars are much more visible than in the city. Not bad for only being 30ish minutes from SA. There's a couple highways that surround the northern half of the property, but they're far enough away that road noise is distant and not disturbing. The distant neighbors seem to leave their dogs outside to bark all night long.

Speaking of, I went for a long walk around the neighborhood and got chased by a couple small dogs. I didn't realize at first because I was jogging with earbuds, but they chased me for a good couple minutes before I got tired of it and chased them back. A few minutes later I was greeted by a couple puppies that were playing in the street and I'm guessing their mom. They followed me until I got to the next property, then they peeled off. Obviously the host isn't responsible for any of that, just FYI.

You CAN pet the donkeys next door if you're patient =) There's also deer everywhere and I saw a hare.

All in all we had an amazing stay and would definitely return, Ryan and Mona are fantastic hosts; my friend and I highly recommend staying at Big Oak.

Absolutely loved staying on Ryan's farm. Its a beautiful , peaceful farm a little less than half hour from Boerne. The campsite is a little away from Ryan's house and is very private. There are solar-powered string lights at the campsite which look fantastic in the evening after sunset.
Ryan is a very caring , attentive host who ensures your stay is nothing short of perfect.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience camping in Texas. Looking forward to returning in the future.

The Big Oak campsite is one of my favorite places to come camping at. It’s on a beautiful property that is peaceful and quiet. The host were so friendly. They came out as soon as we pulled up and gave us a tour of their property. We highly recommended this campsite. We are excited to stay here again soon.
