Welcome to the Human Path Homestead! Just 22 miles from downtown San Antonio, not far off of US 281, our educational homestead is an excellent place to camp.

We have two wooded areas where you can put up your tent or hammock. The north grove, adjacent to parking, offers quick access to the compost toilet, outdoor shower, rainwater filter, electricity, and wi-fi. From here, you are certain to see a chicken or two cluck by. For a bit more seclusion, the south grove edges up to a cliff, where you can view the most spectacular sunsets. This is where the deer and rabbits like to hang out. You can drive to the site to unload or load your gear. Both areas can host up to 12 tents.

Feel free to simply relax in the shade of the persimmon and juniper trees. Or, to add some activity to your stay, hike the varying terrain on our 45 acres, hunt for fossils in the dry creek bed, break out your tree & plant id books, or watch the wildlife (even if it’s just the chickens). See if there is room on the roster for one of our homesteading or herbalism classes. Refresh by taking a dip in the above ground pool, or wash off in the outdoor cob shower.

If you want to explore more Hill Country, nearby attractions for outdoor fun include the Guadalupe River State Park (16mi) or Natural Bridge Cavern (17mi).

Not at all what was expected. There were kitchen sinks, salvage metal and junk yardesque surroundings. Lots of people were present and no space large enough for my family tent that I could see. Apparently this location hosts various classes. We left before ever setting up. If you’re looking for a quiet private property or state park feel, this is not it. Our host however was amazing. Quick to respond to messages and very helpful.

The host Brandi is very nice but not transparent with the listing as of 11.21.18. The property has an educational facility onsite. Upon further research due to to the first review mentioning surprises, I discovered that the class offered during our stay would be a combat medic training. The class Eventbrite posting mentioned "live fire" (guns with ammunition), pellets, paintball, "airsoft", knives and "improvised weapons". I spoke with Brandi, who had no plans to restrict access and coordinate between campers and shooters until I pressed the issue. Eventually she reluctantly agreed that someone would communicate with us about this the day of. Furthermore, the remote campsite is within one acre (out of 45 acres total) of the class with gun fire. Brandi seemed perplexed why this would concern me. This blatant disregard for safety is a major red flag.

I discovered these surprises the day before our trip as I had booked prior to the first review. With this new information, I requested a refund from Brandi about ~ 24 hours prior to check in, after the "moderate" Hipcamp cancellation policy allows. She said she "would look into it" and then never got back with me and ignored my follow up text message 5 days later. Luckily Carlos at Hipcamp HQ took care of me.

Check out the educational facility website below for a more accurate idea of what goes on at this property. It looks like a beautiful property but I wouldn't stay there until Brandi and management prioritize camper safety.
