Very nice spot to get away to. Trees for shade. Close to public access to the Llano River. Easy access off the highway. Other than a couple cell tower lights at night there was no sight or sound of civilization intruding on the wonderful (and few) sounds of nature.
Be aware that the sign for dirt road 103a is on the fence, not roadside on 29. Enjoy!
Private and great wildflower views!
Britt's place is lovely! It's wonderfully private and away from everything, and you can get in some pretty great views at the site I was in (2). You can just barely hear other campers, at sites across the road, but it is for sure not an issue, it's still very private and relaxing. The wildflowers at this time of year were gorgeous. Fire ring is nicely set up. Note though- as this is a primitive campsite, be aware that there are lots of fire ant beds around, so be prepared for that before you come. Not a big issue for me, as we car camp for sleeping, but it could be an issue for someone who doesn't have a proper tent set up. There was also some type of bug (wheel bug I think) that got in my hair at one point and the bite was phenomenal haha, so just make sure you have bite ointment at the ready.
Overall, great site and rec to visit especially during the wildflowers! What a pretty place!
Highly rec this place especially at this time of year so you can see all the pretty flowers :)
Texas nature dream
This spot is beautiful! We had a great time. Stayed at #4 which is tucked back and truly a gem. There were so many wildflowers. I definitely would recommend this spot to anyone who appreciates nature and camping.
Great place to camp.
Oh my gosh what a beautiful property and campsite. All of them are amazing but we stayed at #4. They’re all super secluded, wooded, have fire pits and the views were really nice. We were there in mid May and the wildflowers were literally everywhere. So beautiful.
