Welcome to Boulderdash! Located on a small private acreage with serene views on the Medina River. We are just 10 miles outside of Bandera so we offer the peace & quiet of the country. If you are looking for a place to get wild and party, keep looking. If you are looking for a place get away, relax and enjoy the river then keep reading! We offer river access for floating, paddling or swimming. Be aware that river levels vary widely. Sometimes we have a lake, sometimes a river, and sometimes a stream. Check for recent photos here 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. We do not allow visitors of guests, so keep that in mind. If you want to share your experience with your friends or family they need to book their own site. Boulderdash hosts a Cabin, 3 RV sites and 4 rustic tent sites on 4.8 acres. Bandera is just 20 minutes away and they always something going on. It offers some great restaurants, 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 several dude ranches out that way as well. Come on down Y'all, play in the river and enjoy the views!

This site offers a fire pit and access to a shared, covered BBQ. The site is spacious with room to park a van or pitch two good sized tents. 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. We do not allow extension cords to be ran to the campsites. Feel free to charge your phones or plug in your Keurig. If you want more privacy you are welcome to rent both riverside sites. We have a bathhouse with a flush toilet, sink and a hot shower. If you don’t want to take a hike up the hill you might consider bringing your own portable toilet. We do not have trash service so you are required to take your trash with you when you leave.

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!

Nice flat spaces for tents.Fun shallows for wading and calm water for paddling. Dog friendly!This stretch of the Medina was calm and paddling West/Northwest yields cliffside views and a fun creek.

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.

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!

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.

Response from Carol-anne & Lyn, the Host, on January 9th, 2020

Thanks so much! We purposely put only one fire pit down there because I want people to make friends! In this electronic age I think that real face time is something that people are missing, so encouraging people to be social is something that I wanted to try and promote..........Plus It conserves firewood! :) I am happy to hear that you guys had fun!

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.

LOL......Glad you liked the Toilet feature! Thanks so Much and we really appreciate the feedback! Hope to see you all again!

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!
