Welcome to our little piece of paradise! 55 acres of woods hidden near town. A network of trails criss-cross the creek and wind throughout the property under a peaceful canopy of large beautiful trees. Don't be surprised if you run into deer, squirrels, or roadrunners! Our property is home to a wide variety of hill-country wildlife. 

 - Each of our campsites are private and surrounded by forest. 

 - Each site has a fire ring for campfires 

 - Our trees are our most precious natural resource and set this campground apart! Please don't do anything to harm them. 

 - Port-o-john available on site. 

 - All of our campsites are primitive. No electric or water here. 

 - When you camp with us you are welcome to explore and play on  the entire property! We have 55 acres of trails and woods to explore! Please bring your bikes, trail shoes, or whatever helps you have fun in the wild! 

 - Hammocks welcome! We have so many trees! All of our sites are hammock friendly. 

 - When you check in, your host will help you find your campsite. 

 - Some sites are drive-in where your vehicle can park right next to the fire. Others are walk-in and require a short hike of 100' or less from your parking space. You can indicate your preference during booking or at check-in. 

If you want to drive right in to your site, Campsites 2, 6, & 12 are the sites you want.

Some of our campsites are more secluded than the others and offer extreme privacy in the most beautiful settings we have to offer. If you're looking for a wilder campsite surrounded by huge old trees and and all the peace the woods have to offer, just request Campsites 4, 5, 7, or 8. Each of these sites require a walk of at least 50' from your vehicle to the fire ring. 

Site 13 is only for backpackers or people willing to hike about 500 yards to the campsite. There is no way to drive to it or even get close except on foot. But it is spectacular and beautiful!

Only two sites can accommodate a trailer or camper. Site 1 and site 6. Please notify me in your booking if you intend to bring a camper and I can accommodate you.

Heads-up! We have a small farm on the property where we raise domestic goats, chickens, and pigs. 

Dogs are always welcome and we LOVE our furry friends! For their safety and the safety of our livestock please keep them leashed while on property.

Lost woods was a great campground for those not afraid to rough it! Definitely gives you a feel of being lost in the woods. Plenty of trails available for hiking/biking. Even though it is in the city it still has a very secluded feel to it! Lots of trees: elms, oak, juniper, hackberry. Lots of wild edibles! A few prickly pear cactus, some Texas bird pepper, mustang grapes, juniper berries and I saw quite a few turkey tail mushrooms as well on fallen limbs on the trails. Probably a great spot for mushroom hunting after a rainy week. My family loved our overnight stay and my kids loved the little fairy house and gnome near the campsite. If you want to have an authentic camp out definitely visit Lost Woods. We will definitely be back in cooler weather.

We got in late for check in. No worries, James was ready with in a few minutes meeting us at the gate to show us our camp ground.
This was our first actual tent camping with our 16 and 8 yr old girls. Okay glamping cause momma can’t sleep with no AC.
The spot is e had was right around the corner from the pigs and chickens. 8 yr old loves that. Hubby and I walked the trails before the girls woke up and it was very nice barely touched by humans. Roads are more like big trails.
Hubbys 2500 GMC, 4 door, 8’ bed had some snug trees to get through to park. But no worries that what made the experience even better it was like we made it ourselves.

This place looks like abandoned woods,, everything is extremely overgrown, didn’t see anything marked, had no idea where anything was! I would never book this place again.

Ruben, we pride ourselves on maintaining the most natural space available in San Antonio for private camping. It really is just the woods. We've build dirt roads to access your campsites, and cleared campsites with rock fire rings, but beyond that, we let the woods be woods. So bro, if you don't like being in nature, then this is not the place for you. AS for your poor experience, we never received a single text or call from you during your stay. Would love to know what you were expecting. But like I said. This is the woods.

Our stay was great. We were in town for our grandbaby's 1st birthday and just needed a place to boondock. This was quiet and out of the way. Perfect.

Well spread sites that have more than enough privacy to forget about everything and just relax. Had a great stay with my girlfriend and dog.
