I had a great time at Dos Rios! Colin was very helpful and provided detailed instructions on the camp. However, be careful with the hipcamp checkout process as the campsites are wrong! On checkout it makes it appear as if the campsites are scattered along both sides of the river when in reality they're all clumped together on one end of the river. The Dos Rios website has the actual campsites that correspond to the numbers in checkout. We ended up driving onto what we thought was our campsite but turned out to be private property. I didn't have a bad experience, but I was really disappointed since I'd picked my tent site specifically for the supposed location near the water and I ended up far from the river.
Great location, Collin and Michaela were very helpful. We got in and found a spot to set up our tent. Grilled late and night folks around us were friendly. Water was pretty cold but it was sunny enough to dip in our toes. We'll def be coming back.
I just wanted to write in and say what a great time I had at the Dos Rios Campsite in Mason County. The spots were beautiful, the host was gracious and the area was CLEAN. I met a nice girl names Ashlee who was fly fishing and she said that she was taking some photos for Hip Camp, she was super nice and pointed me in the direction of a few good fishing spots.
All in all a great experience!
I set up my tent in 2 different spots for the nights that I stayed here - and ended up not using the tent either night, pulling my sleeping pad and bag out of the tent to sleep under the brilliant stars. This place is magic, and we timed our trip perfectly during a new moon. The river is gorgeous, clear and cool, and the landscape is about as good as it gets in Texas. The drive out to Dos Rios is part of the experience, so be sure if you’re coming from Austin to stop in Luckenbach or visit Enchanted Rock along the way. And - unless you don’t eat meat, STOP AT COOPER’S BBQ in Mason.
Good bathroom/laundry facilities not within quick walking distance. Right by water but also right by a fairly busy road. Great if you just need a place to crash! Lots of RV's (we were tent camping). Texas countryside is gorgeous as always, and the stars out here are magnificent!
Amazing camping, hiking and scenery
Dos Rios was more than we could have asked for!
Booking - the site owner was super friendly and extremely attentive/responsive. He analyzed our group and ensured we had enough space and were comfortable with the layout. He responded to all of our questions and was ready to help via email or text.
Site - The site was absolutely amazing even at 10:00 pm when we pulled in. It was open but private and the sunrise/sunset the next day was breath taking. It was very clean, accessible, and we had everything we needed. The site also had optional lights that had we could control with a timer so if you wanted them off to enjoy the fire or keep on because you wanted to chase your dog around, you could do so! We stayed on Site 3 (with lights) and Site 1 (closer to river - no lights but there is a solar light that stays on for a bit).
Host - super friendly, knowledgeable and always around if needed! He showed us our sites since we drove in super late, made sure we had what we needed, and even told us what we could do in the area for fun. The host genuinely cared about the property and you could tell by the way he attended to the site and us.
We will definitely come back and kayak in the summer :) Thank you for having us!
