Located outside New Braunfels, Son’s Island is an actual Island with a tropical feel! This Island paradise is located on Lake Placid which is fed from the Guadalupe & Comal Rivers.

With a bridge at it's entrance, Son's Island is accessible by car. On Son’s Island are 20 large glamping tents with AC that lucky guests can stay overnight in. Glamping Guests get to enjoy the Island after normal daytime hours, which is the best time to be on the Island as sunsets & sunrises are absolutely beautiful!

Each Glamping Tent has air-conditioning, 2 queen beds with foam mattresses, and 1 twin bed, side tables, fan, and electricity. Be sure to bring your own sheets, pillows and blankets as we do not provide these.

Our Glamping Tents are located near the cabanas. Each cabana and has electricity, water, comfortable seating, picnic table, light, & private dock. Glamping Guests get free use of a cabana from 7:30 PM to 10:00 AM but must rent a cabana during the day if they plan to stay.

We have 6 full, private, lockable bathrooms with hot water showers on the property located just a short distance from the Glamping Tents. Getting the Island:

We have a large bridge at our entrance so you can drive your car onto the Island and up to your Glamping Tent to unload. After unloading, Guests park their vehicles on the rear of the Island.

We are normally fully booked during the day. You must rent a cabana ahead of time if you plan to stay during the day, otherwise the Glamping rental is overnight only from 7:30 PM to 10:00 AM. If you rent multiple nights and don't rent a cabana you must leave the property during the day as we have limited space due to being an actual Island.

Tube and kayak rentals are available during the day if you rent cabana and stay.
