Our little slice of heaven is right on the river, we live Downtown in a Charming, quiet little country town. Our property sits right on the San Marcos river, with both shallow and deep areas, its a great place for swimming and fishing or just plopping a chair in the water and relaxing. We live on roughly 3 acres so privacy is not an issue. Although its a big site, we only book to one family at a time so you can enjoy the whole place to yourself.

We do have a 2 night minimum, but we understand we're in a time when everyone is looking for safe options to get outside with their families, so if your looking for a quick one night get away or a just a day on the river please message me, if the calendar allows , I'll see if I can accommodate you. If your wanting to explore the area around us we're centrally located. We're 8 miles to San Marcos, 10 miles to Lockhart, 12 miles to Prime/Tanger Outlet Mall, 15 miles to Luling, 20 miles to Gruene/New Braunfels , 25 miles to Circuit of the Americas , 25 miles to Wimberley, 30 miles to Austin, 45 miles to San Antonio, and 75 miles to Fredericksburg.

Great location in Martindale, beautiful river access, wonderful fire pit. We enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back! Plenty of open space to park our RV with convenient hook up for electricity and water.
Highly recommend this campsite! Very private and so nice to have direct river access. Angela and Armando have gone out of their way to make the site special. The outdoor shower was amazing and fire pit was so nice. We will definitely be back!
Slice of Heaven is appropriately named! Such an oasis, and being able to stroll to a fantastic cafe to hear live musicians in the evenings? PHENOMENAL.
Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
Perfect for a family gathering
This place is almost perfect! We had a family gathering with 3 generations and couldn't have asked for a better spot, nice big grassy lawn, some big shade trees, and the river just down the stairs. The water was the perfect temperature and it ranged from ankle deep at the bottom of the stairs to neck deep just upstream. BBQ grill, picnic table, a place to rinse off and electricity if needed. The hosts were very accommodating and welcoming, they even gave us some of their surplus fresh tomatoes!
The only downside is a little more shade would have been welcome, but it's the middle of summer, so if you get a little too hot, just go dip in the river again.
Had a great time! Took our family of five for a long weekend (our children are 5 yrs, 3 yrs and 3 months). Clean, well maintained camping area, awesome outdoor shower, excellent spot on the river, and super friendly / attentive hosts. We’re already planning a return trip.
We stayed for a few days and it was perfect! We brought our travel trailer and were just steps to the river. We enjoyed the fire pit nearby as well. Angela and Armando quickly responded to messages to resolve any issues. We look forward to returning.
This spot was perfect! Loved being right on the water and even though you are technically "in town" there wasn't noise pollution. The cafe near by did do live music in the evenings but we loved the soft background sounds and they didn't go late. Our group used our kayaks and paddle boards on the water. We grilled out, played bocce ball, sat around the fire, read by the river and more. It was the exact relaxing weekend we needed. Angela and Armando were quick to respond and at the ready to aid in any issue that came up (which there weren't really any). I'm happy to know of a great spot to camp on by the river, not too far from Austin, and in a safe environment. We will be back!
We loved this spot. It’s beautiful with plenty of room and a beautiful rock pathway down to river. The outdoor shower is fantastic and the yellow portapotty next to it is super clean with a fun sink outside.
We loved the music almost next door at the Martindale cafe and we also kayaked the San Marcos river and got out at our campsite.
