I set up my tent in 2 different spots for the nights that I stayed here - and ended up not using the tent either night, pulling my sleeping pad and bag out of the tent to sleep under the brilliant stars. This place is magic, and we timed our trip perfectly during a new moon. The river is gorgeous, clear and cool, and the landscape is about as good as it gets in Texas. The drive out to Dos Rios is part of the experience, so be sure if you’re coming from Austin to stop in Luckenbach or visit Enchanted Rock along the way. And - unless you don’t eat meat, STOP AT COOPER’S BBQ in Mason.
Camping and hammocking in this pine forest is magic! It’s open, so pick your favorite spot, and enjoy the community kitchen/hangout area, the perfect lawn, and the amphitheater. This is also a great option for overflow from the other lodging options at Music Springs if you have a large group. There is an AMAZING outdoor shower, and men’s/women’s restrooms that the owners really went out of their way to make as unique as possible.
