This site is located behind our RV sites and offers a shady spot nestled in oak trees where you can park a van or pitch a couple of good sized tents. If you enjoy dry camping this site will accommodate a small pop-up camper. Just keep in mind there are no hook-ups and we do not have a dump station. 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! The site offers level ground, plenty of space, a picnic table and a fire pit so don’t forget the S’mores! You also have access to the community grill beside the observation deck. 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! Please note this is our least private spot and its best features are deer viewing and its proximity to the bathroom. If you are looking for a more private experience please look at our cliffside or riverside sites. Our tent sites are primitive and do not have power or water at the site. There is water in the bathhouse and a wash station next to the bathhouse with a small sink and an outlet to charge a phone. 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.  

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!

Just cant put into words the great time we had here. The hilltop camp site is the more viewed area but the privacy is amazing. The boulderdash climb is a hike but enjoyed. The views are amazing. The water amazing. And our two big dogs loved it!! We will be coming back!!

Awesome campsite near the Medina, host allowed us to move from site 3 to 4. We would of been more than happy with either but 4 was definitely more secluded and cozy. Thanks again for letting us stay!

It was clean, friendly, interesting and dark at night. Deer outnumbered people. No evidence of urban noise, only country sounds.

It is a beautiful place. The river is an amazing sight. My only misgiving about it is that the tent site number 3, I believe it was, is directly behind the living quarters of a family that lives there. You're immediate impression is that you are paying to camp in someone's yard. When I saw this, I immediately felt regret for choosing to stay at that particular tent site. However, the rest of the tent sites offer amazing views.

Response from Carol-anne & Lyn, the Host, on February 10th, 2021

I am sorry you felt a lack of privacy Ardis, I have gone ahead and updated the description to maybe prevent others from renting a spot they may be unhappy with. I do thank you for mentioning our other sites though. We appreciate your honesty.

One of the best if not the best most hospitable campsites I’ve ever stayed at. Super friendly, had/have nothing to complain about. We will definitely be coming back with more people and renting the cabin here soon!!

This is a great spot on the river. The campsites are close together. The hot, clean shower was great. Some of the campsites have the potential to be muddy if it rains, but the location on the river makes it all worthwhile and the host was very friendly.

Hipcamper Carol-anne & Lyn
Response from Carol-anne & Lyn, the Host, on January 5th, 2021

Thanks Sharon. Camping is supposed to be a little rustic.....what's that song? get a little mud on your tires? As far as campsite spacing I wish we could give everyone a 1/4 acre, but we have done the best we can with what we have, and we are not planning on getting any bigger, maybe nicer, but not bigger :)!

I had a great experience at Boulderdash this weekend! Campsite 3 was very spacious and the hosts were helpful and friendly when I arrived. The bathroom was clean and extremely convenient. It was a great pushing off point to head over to Lost Maples to see the leaves and do some hiking.
My only suggestion would be to ask for specific directions to your campsite if there’s any chance you’ll be arriving after sunset. I got a bit turned around and couldn’t see the sign with the number because it was very small and close to the ground.
I would definitely camp at Boulderdash again!

Hipcamper Carol-anne & Lyn
Response from Carol-anne & Lyn, the Host, on November 23rd, 2020

Thanks Helen!! Did you find us using google maps as suggested? I know the neighborhood its rather twisty and its difficult to figure out where you are after dark! We will try and light up our campsite signs! Great suggestion!

This was overall a great camping site and experience. The site was less secluded or private than I had expected but that’s the only drawback from this trip. The hosts were great. They greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed.
