About River Camping on Organic Farm
Our River Farm is a working certified organic vegetable and flower farm that has three distinct terraces.
At the top terrace is a wooded hillside of Texas Persimmon trees bordered by a newly installed food forest. It affords a beautiful overlook of the farm. Down the hill --on the middle terrace -- is where we live and grow about 4 acres of vegetables That is also where our rustic shower/bathroom is located.
The bottom terrace features a thick woods along the Colorado River -- and a treehouse that overlooks the river (a gift from my husband for my birthday -- you are welcome to sleep up there). Primitive campers are welcome on the top or bottom terraces; there is plenty of privacy. We live in a cottage on the property so there is always someone there in case of illness or emergency.
Though we are just a 20 minute drive to downtown Austin, being on the river makes it feel like we are a world away. Bastrop and Elgin are nearby friendly small towns that are worth exploring for antiques and good food.
Our farm is known for its farm-based education programs so volunteers are always welcome!

The vibe at River Camping on Organic Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This place is kept impeccable! It is so well kept, you need to experience it yourself!
The entire campground is surrounded by trees and the ground is very comfy grass and its also located right next to a small river.
Depending on the time of year so come, you might need bug spray because as you might know, mosquitoes and other bugs like hanging along the water.
The campground is located about 30 minutes from Austin with some gas stations near by in case you might want a snack or something - the closest one would probably be 10 min away.
I would totally recommend this location, it's very quiet and peaceful but it's far away from anyone where you don't have to be overly quiet. You've got to visit, it is a perfect getaway location or even if your driving by.
