To begin, I'd like to say that Laura was by far the best host we've ever had. Her and her family welcomed us in and treated us with so much respect and generosity. Their land is a perfect little escape from reality and yet just outside of san marcos. It's breathtaking and I hope that youll cherish it like we did. Please know this is a family place and by no means a party house. Yes have fun but dont ruin this experience for everyone else to enjoy. This home has been in their family for years and they are being gracious enough to share it with others. This was a visit that my boyfriend and I will definitely hold onto and will be visiting time and time again to relax and unwine with these folks that treated us with true southern hospitality.

Firstly let me tell you Laura is an amazing host. Super friendly and warm along with being very accommodating! She definitely goes above and beyond for her guest. Her site went above and beyond my expectations. The dam was such a spectacular view and the river was a bluish/green. It was the perfect temperature as well and we spent a full day just lounging in it. Laura had lights strung for our campsite, a trash can, and table with a tablecloth along with a bathroom and outdoor shower within walking distance. It was the best campsite I have been too. I will definitely be back! Especially site Tara! 😊

This place is truly a gem!! We had the best time! Our little kids loved the variety of ducks, the rope swing, the aqua pad, canyoning down the rapids and the calm waters above the waterfall. Laura makes sure you have everything you need and truly goes out of her way to be sure you are happy. Book this place, you won't regret it!

I'am so happy your family had a great time. So glad you were here to alert me about the snake in the duck pen. That was an experience the children will never forget. See you guys next time. Laura

This is the perfect spot for campers. Great for family or a couples getaway. Laura is an amazing host, and her ducks are so fun to watch throughout the day. My kids and I had a blast in the water and exploring her beautiful property. I’ve already spent two visits with her and I can’t wait to escape to her backyard again! I HIGHLY recommend this site!
