Pitch a tent or park a trailer about a 1/3rd mile away from the river bank at the park’s main campground. The 58 campsites here come tricked out with water and electric hookups, plus picnic tables. Hiking and biking trails led right out of the campground, and Buck Lake sits just to the north, so there’s lots to explore nearby. Crave a little bit of privacy but still want access to all of the action? Try to reserve one of South Llano River’s eight walk-in campsites. Set not far from the main campground, these sites have picnic tables and fire rings plus restrooms and running water nearby. You’ll have to walk somewhere between 30 and 60 yards to get to your site, so pack appropriately.

Maybe tent-camping in 100 degree weather wasn't the smartest idea we've ever had, but South Llano River State Park kept us cool. For the most part. There are two main areas to access the river and swim, float, sit, cool off. It involves a .3 mile walk or drive from the campsites, depending on where you go, so plan accordingly. The walk in campsites nice, but next time we may stay at the water/electric sites, as there was a good mix of tent campers and RV's and there was more shade. GREAT hot showers and had amazingly great cell phone service the whole time. Saw a variety of wildlife: armadillos, turkeys, snakes (in the water!), a fox, deer, a great Blue Heron and lots of birds and lizards.

Great swimming area at the input point for the tubes/kayaks.South Llano River CampgroundThe water feature at the Acorn Bird Blind. Caught this sweet Yellow throated warbler enjoying the water.One of several bird blinds to go and watch the birds. The two we visited had water features to attract the birds and there was always activity. Really great!
