Take a dive in the clear, rock bottom springs. Elevations range from 1917 feet above sea level in the river bottoms to 2277 feet in the uplands.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Quiet, beautiful spot for low-key camping. A group of 10 friends camped here for my birthday and had a grand time. We brought in all of our own gear and camped for two nights, and were wonderfully close to a bridge where we put kayaks in on the South Llano. Firewood was provided, and Tom even checked in on us once he saw a storm was supposed to roll in. Lovely couple, nice spot if you don’t need amenities. Pack it in, pack it out.
It feels like your own private park
Llano Springs Ranch is a gem of a property. My daughter and I camped by their blue hole water feature for two nights and had a blast. The hosts made it a very easy and enjoyable stay - the camping area was mowed, there was plenty of firewood, and picnic tables/grill/fire pit. We felt like we had a state park all to ourselves.
Privacy with beautiful lake
Private with great fishing at the headwaters of the Llano River. Really cool spot on large property with your own small spring fed lake to fish or swim in. Do be aware that the first photo in the listing states you have access to a canoe, which is not true (the owners advised us on where we could rent one for $70 a day which was disappointing considering how much we paid for the camping spot). Other than the high cost of the property I would highly recommend it. No water, trash, or bathroom, so I would think it wouldn't work for tent campers and only people with trailers that have their own water and bathroom. Nice hosts and great private experience.
I'm still swooning from my stay at Llano Springs Ranch this past weekend. We had a three hour drive out to the ranch, but it was completely worth it to spend the night on our own private overlook of the South Llano headwaters. We got so wrapped up in playing in the cool water, fishing and canoeing that we didn't even explore all that this location has to offer – but I hope to return to hike around and see even more of this beautiful location!
Between falling asleep to nothing but peaceful river sounds, plenty of wildlife sightings (wild pigs, deer, frogs and rare Guadalupe bass, to name a few) and a pleasant cool breeze almost the entire weekend, this place is the perfect weekend get-away. For larger groups, the camping area has plenty of space, and there's a fire pit ready to go (just make sure there isn't a burn ban in the area if you plan to use it). Plus, the landowners are some of the kindest people I've met. They really went above and beyond to welcome us and make sure we enjoyed our stay.
