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!

Great riverside camping!
This is a really neat spot, right by the Medina! The hosts were very communicative and provided all the info we could ever have needed. The place is very dog friendly, which may have been my favorite part of the whole experience. The sites were well kept, with picnic tables at each one. I will say that the three tent sites are directly adjacent to one another, which means little or no privacy if the place is booked up. However, this would make for a great group outing, or family trip spot. The restroom and water spigot are co-located at the top of a hill, so I suggest bringing a water jug to fill so that you don’t have to make multiple trips. Overall, we were very pleased and would love to return!
I booked with seriously short notice so the kids could get out into the fresh air and we are not disappointed! Water access and tons of shade. I felt like it was the primitive camping of an airbnb. Haha You can tell they put their heart into the details the hosts were so helpful and friendly. The hike up to the bathroom was a little inconvenient at times with the kids but I still want to go back.
Beautiful waterside camping
We had a fantastic time staying at Boulderdash! The campground was beautiful and well kept. We loved being right on the water. Lyn and Carol Anne were there and are awesome people. We also rented the canoe and went exploring down the river. It was a wonderful camping trip and I will be going back soon!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
It was a wonderful time! The area is beautiful, and the nearby Bandera town was a great cowboy experience. We loved the canoe rental, the water was so clear we could see the fish and turtles below. There is only one fire pit for the tent sites to share, but even that was really enjoyable for us. We met some great people and had some really good conversations.
A group of us rented tent areas 1,2,3 it was such a wonderful weekend away! We enjoyed spending the day by the river it was gorgeous! We rented all 3 campsites for 12 total, only downside I could see if you had a larger group the individual sites seemed a little smaller but solution would be to rent them all! highly recommend! A nice bonus was being able to actually use a real toilet while camping.
Book now before it's too late!
A great piece of paradise in Texas! Very nice retreat for some R&R by the river. The owners and host were very helpful answering any questions. We went on a rainy weekend so we pretty much had the tent sites to ourselves. On a summer weekend I would recommend renting two sites if you have a decent size group. We had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone!
