This site offers a picnic table, a fire pit, a small camp grill and access to a shared, covered BBQ. The site is spacious with room to park a van or pitch a couple good sized tents. We are just 10 miles outside of Bandera so we offer the peace & quiet of the country. We DO NOT allow guests to have visitors so if you want to share your experience with your friends or family they need to book their own site. We are a family friendly campground so if you are looking for a place to get wild and party, keep looking. If you are looking for a place to get away, relax and enjoy the river then keep reading! Our tent sites are primitive and do not have power or water at the site. We offer a communal kitchen area for the two riverside sites. The kitchen is equipped with outlets, USB plug-ins, a sink, and a water hose. Feel free to charge your phones or plug in your Keurig. We do not allow extension cords to be ran to the campsites so bring your battery powered fans! If you want more privacy you are welcome to rent both riverside sites. We offer river access for floating, paddling, swimming or fishing. We do not offer a boat launch so if your water toy is on a trailer leave that at home! We have a bathhouse with a flush toilet, sink and a hot shower. It’s a hike up the paved drive but it’s better than the alternative! We do not have trash service so you are required to take your trash with you when you leave. This site will accommodate 6 people, 2 pets and up to 3 tents. Please don’t ask if you can bring more people or pets, the answer is no. We include 1 vehicle with the site and you may bring a 2nd vehicle for a $10 charge. The extra vehicle needs to be parked in our overflow parking. Motorcycles and trailers (no matter how small) are NOT allowed. We can not accommodate them so do not bring them.  

Boulderdash Cabin & RV Park is located on 4.8 acres with serene views on the Medina River. Be aware that river levels vary widely. Sometimes we have a lake, sometimes a river, and sometimes a stream. Check for recent photos on our FB page or on Google to get an idea of the river levels. Even when the river is low we have a great swimming hole so bring your chairs, hats, sunscreen and shades. Come spend a weekend or longer at our little slice of paradise. Remember to invite your friends or family to stay at one of our other 3 rustic tent sites, 3 RV sites, the cabin, or our retro RV “Stella” so they can enjoy some downtime too! Bandera is just 20 minutes away and there is always something going on. It offers some great restaurants, a museum, several shops and best of all, Cowboys! If you like to hike the Hill Country State Natural Area boasts 40 miles of trails and is just a short drive away. If you are into horses there are a few local businesses that offer horseback riding. Come on down y'all, play in the river and enjoy the views!

This nice, shady spot next to the river provided plenty of space for camping. It was easy to walk down to the river to enjoy some sun and water time. The fire ring and picnic table were just right too. Loved having a sink with running water and electricity just steps away. We would definitely return to Boulderdash.

LOL, so sorry about the bugs Myeka, unfortunately they are part of the camping experience, esp. after some much needed rain! I guess you made some memories on the Medina huh :)! Anyway, I am so glad Andrea took care of you guys and we look forward to seeing you again.

Camping at boulderdash was a great time with the family. Tent site #1 (Riverside) was a perfect spot with generous space and close proximity to the river shared with only one other tent site with plenty of distance between us.

The hosts were amazing and provided updates prior to and upon arrival. We knew exactly what to expect when we arrived.

We look forward to staying again in the near future.

This place was great and very fun to stay at. Carol-anne and Lyn do a great job of preparing you for trip (neighbors, amenities, trash). We rented both riverside spots and had plenty of space. The river was very low but that made it fun to explore and walk down. The host Andrea was super nice and helpful. We will definitely plan another trip here :).

Went there for my wife’s birthday and truly enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. Even though the river was low we were still able to take our kayaks out and enjoyed a relaxing float. Already planning another stay in May.
