Last weekend my husband and I stayed at Camp River Life to get one last trip in before the school year started, and we couldn't have made a better choice! Luis' property is only an hour outside of Houston and includes private access to the Trinity River. Our hot Texas weekend was chilled by easy access to the water. From our campsite it was an easy and quick one minute hike down to a small beach with enough space to set up chairs and a picnic.
Our campsite was risen and looked over the river, making for a wonderful sun rise in the morning. To get to the site you have to hike out from Luis' house, this is a simple 1-2 minute walk. There was plenty of cleared space to set up our tent, as well as trees for hammocks, and space for cooking. Luis' also provided camp chairs, a foldable table, drinking water, and plenty of light for the evening. There is also an outdoor shower Luis made from bamboo, and a camping toilet.
Parking and the drive leading to Luis' property was super easy as the property is in a river neighborhood, however we still felt secluded and away from any noise. And there was so much nature to enjoy!
We will definitely be going back to visit Camp River Life, and have already recommended to friends. Luis was a fantastic host, gave us great recommendations, and has set up a beautiful camp spot! Be sure to use Luis' surf board and cross the river to the beach on the other side to collect petrified rocks, and visit Lake Livingston State Park for a short hiking trial.
The best place to camp out!!!
Luis is an AMAZING host. He went WAY above and beyond to make us comfortable and make sure every need and detail was addressed. As a host ...he ROCKS!!!! Every accomodation was attended to , and more! As a human being, an absolutely beautiful person. We are so happy we have met him, and look foward to a continued friendship❤ The property is beautiful, very well kept, very private.....the energy is amazing here....
We will come back to Luis's property again and again...there is so much space ...so much to do...so much to take in...
I couldnt have wished for a more beautiful weekend!!! Thank you Luis!!!!
Luis is the BEST! He is so kind and wanted to make sure we had the best trip we could! The campsite was so cute and easy to get to, and perfect place to camp! Luis let us use his kayaks, ATVs, zip line and more! This was my first time using hip camp and I was worried it may seem awkward but it was so far from that because Luis made his home ours for the weekend! Would for sure go back and recommend to anyone!
Great spot right on the river. Luis was a great host and greeted us upon arrival. There was plenty of space for our tent and a fire. Water and power were also provided, which was a great plus. The site was quiet and night and beautiful! I can’t wait to be back and bring friends!
My girlfriend and I had a great time at Luis' camping spot. For being just over an hour outside of Houston, the scenery was beautiful, and the accommodations Luis provided were unexpected for camping conditions. Would definitely recommend.
