This is a primitive spot just at the back of a 3.7 acre homestead in a rural neighborhood. Follow the driveway past the house and down the hill and you'll be surrounded by trees giving you a sense of privacy and outdoor luster. About an acre of wooded area with water access with fishing, kayaking, or swimming. 

There are actually two campsites in this area (Campsite 2 is under construction but may house volunteers from the WWOOF program) and a community area to load and unload watercraft, fish, and a community fire pit.   We also enjoy this area so there is the chance that we will also end up down there fishing or burning a fire and enjoying ourselves in the community area.

This site was just what we needed. The fishing is fantastic and the fish were very active as the sun started going down. The fire pit was huge and made the campfire just as big. The area is very secluded and there are tons of spots to set up a tent of any size. Jill was a fantastic host! And the farm eggs where amazing for breakfast. Definitely recommend this place!

This was the perfect fishing/camping getaway for me and my 9 year old. Loads of space to camp, excellent fishing right from the site and a beautiful river for kayak adventuring. Jill was a helpful host and we plan to return!

Spotted: 2 Frogs, 2 Turtles, 1 Kingfisher, 1 Gar.

Caught: 2 Bass, 2 Crappie, 1 Bluegill, Couple of trees , 15000 roasted marshmallows!

I really enjoyed my stay at Fisherman's Cove and would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to get away from the city and enjoy some peace and quiet. Kayaking was really fun and there seems to be a ton of fish in the water. I didn't have any luck catching anything, but I'm really not a great fisherman to be honest. It did rain a lot during my stay, but it didn't bother me and actually cooled things down. I had a very peaceful night's sleep in my hammock and woke to birds singing and fish splashing in the water. I would for sure come back again and bring the wife and kids next time!

Lots of fish!Trying to stay dry in the rain!

Wonderful spot, private/secluded, but not too far from everything east of Austin!

Host was very nice and informative. Camp area by the river was cleared out with a large fire pit, we opted to include firewood which was very convenient- next time we will get her big spray as well! We were able to take our kayaks out which was nice. There is a community area next to the campsite which is shared with hosts. Great star gazing and enough space at camp site for our two tents and two hammocks plus chairs around the fire pit. It did feel like we were right behind someone’s house and were close to neighbors, we could hear them and dogs pretty closely. Not a bad thing, just something to consider depending the amount of privacy you’re looking for. Overall good spot for a quick relaxing getaway. Would recommend.

Lovey piece of land you have there! We enjoyed it tremendously! The creek is so peaceful and beautiful! We rented the kayaks and had a blast! Would have liked to have a picnic table but other than that it was perfect!
