Great spot for groups with mixed outdoor comfort levels. You're far enough from camp roadways and not quite "car camping" but you're also close enough to lug in all the comforts you need to accommodate your less camp ready friends.
Additionally, the 4 lots are nicely spaced out giving you a bit more privacy and minimizing noise levels of those nearby.
We spotted wild turkey right next to camp and were able to take the nearest trail to the main part of the park rather than driving on the roads. Great spot.
History of Hill Country State Natural Area
Hill Country State Natural Area is located in Bandera and Medina counties, 45 miles northwest of San Antonio. The 5,369.8-acre site was acquired by gift and purchase in 1976 and was opened to the public in 1984. The bulk of the site was a donation from the Merrick Bar-O Ranch with the stipulation that it "be kept far removed and untouched by modern civilization, where everything is preserved intact, yet put to a useful purpose."
