Sure was great. Perfectly secluded little hill country campsite. Very primitive and just what I was looking for. Half moon the night I was there but even still the stars were phenomenal.
Access to the llano was close by. Perfect for a fishing trip camp site.
Private and quiet!
I very much enjoyed our stay here. We were looking for a quiet and very private place to enjoy for a night and this was it! I believe there was a group in site 1 and we were over near sites 3 and 4 and did not hear or see anyone for our entire stay. There is a lot of space to decide where you want to pitch your tent. Easy to get to from Austin. I would certainly visit again!
Wonderful secluded campsite
We stayed at campsite four and it was really lovely; Nice and secluded. Great spot for star gazing. We built a fire and enjoyed the night sky. Wasn’t to difficult to find either! Host was quick to respond too! Hope to come back soon!
Drive up solitude
It was so good to sit by the fire and not see a bunch of other people camped just feet away. I enjoyed my stay at Britt’s place. It’s rare to be able to drive your vehicle to a campsite that offers solitude. You usually have to choose between comforts and privacy, but here you can bring the comfort and have the privacy. If there is a downside it would have to be the traffic noise from the county road. Not a deal breaker though. Go on the new moon. The stars are incredible!
Nice little secluded spot in the Hill Country, close to the Texas Overlanding route. The campsite is clean, and directions to get there is clear. It’s primitive camping, so do clean up after yourselves for the next campers. Most land in the hill country is private, and thankful we are able to camp out here.
Pretty stargazing, nice drive
It was a beautiful property and clean of any litter. You can see Enchanted Rock from site #2, the stargazing is great, and there are some livestock (a cute older calf!) to look at. We enjoyed listening to the coyotes howl in the evening.
There just aren’t enough active amenities (fishing, hiking, etc.) to justify going back. However, it is great if you just want a relaxing camping experience.
You can drive right up to the site- perfect if you are a glamper.
We came in after sundown, so the campsite markings were a bit hard to find. Maybe a permanent wooden sign with reflective tape would work great!?
Beware of the weeds out there (wear thicker pants and gloves), if you brush against them, you’ll end up tiny (~1mm long) needles in your skin.
