The vibe at Llama Refuge
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
What a unique camping experience in small-town Kerrville, Texas! Our time at Llama Refuge was as fun as it was educational. This property is home to all sorts of creatures - chickens, geese, guinea fowl, a few farm cats and dogs, and of course, llamas! There are 11 llamas living on the property, all rescued or retired. The llamas are free-roaming, so expect to share your space with them during your stay. As soon as we pulled up to the designated camping spot and began to unload, two llamas ran over to check us out. They were curious and completely harmless. After looking over our tent and sniffing our faces, they left us alone and resumed grazing in the nearby field.
The camping space is spacious and shaded by oak and cedar trees. A table, two chairs, a firepit/firewood, a big jug of water, and an outdoor composting toilet are all provided at the campsite. The campsite is a few minutes walk from the main house. The host Baxter was kind and hospitable, driving down on her golf cart to ensure we had all we needed before evening set in. Drive 10 minutes to Kerrville for groceries, swimming/fishing on the Guadalupe, or eating at one of the many restaurants. Inks Lake State Park and Enchanted Rock State Natural area are within driving distance as well.
In the morning, we helped Baxter feed the llamas. This was the highlight of our stay! Baxter took us through each step of the process - herding the llamas in the feeding pen, spacing out the food pellets so no “food fights” occurred, spreading out alfalfa hay… and hand-feeding the llamas carrots for dessert! We appreciated the hands-on learning experiences that this property offered, and look forward to returning.
This camp adventure was relaxing, primitive, clean, quiet, charming, and full of rest. We were met with a beautiful scenic space and llamas. Yes, llamas! This is a wonderful place to stay. We WILL go back again!
