I had a very relaxing time for two nights at the Weber Ranch. Chuck was an excellent host and drove around to show me the fishing pond and the Medina River. The site I was given was perfect with large, shady pecan trees all around. There are some amazing views to see if you feel like hiking to the top of any of the large hills. If you're looking for something quiet, peaceful and primitive then this is your place. I would definitely like to come back again.
I really enjoyed my overnight stay at the serenity pond. Very quiet and peaceful and was just what I was looking for. Ben, the host seems like a great guy and his dog Monty is a good boy. There is nice new looking fire pit that was perfect for my night under the clear night skies. I woke to a beautiful sunrise. I felt extremely relaxed my entire stay. I definitely recommend coming out here if you're needed a place to get away from all of the noise of the city.
I had a very nice and relaxing time camping on Polly's land. Polly was great at giving directions and I found the place with no problem. I camped on top of the hill where I had a wonderful view that went for miles. I highly recommend coming here if you are looking for a quiet and secluded place to camp.
I had a great time at Camp Chorriola! Jennifer, the host was very friendly and accommodating. She drove me around the property and showed me everything and let me set up camp wherever I wanted. I picked a nice wooded area with lots of oaks since I was hammock camping. It was very primitive and secluded which is what I was looking for. There is a good sized pond to fish and swim in, but it was too cold and rainy to swim the day I went. There's plenty of trails to hike around on and places to explore. If you're looking for a nice primitive place to camp then this place is perfect. I will definitely like to come back again soon.
I had a great and relaxing time during my overnight stay at the Colorado River Camp. Francisco, the host was excellent at giving directions to the place when I had gotten a little turned around. Beautiful views of the river and lots of fish, even though I didn't manage to catch anything. There are horses walking around but they never bothered me. I really enjoyed my time there and would definitely go back again. Highly recommend!
The honey hole is such a beautiful place. You really have to see it in person to get the full effect of how truly wonderful this place is. My wife and I enjoyed two nights camping at the honey hole. We did lots of swimming in the very clear and perfect temperature pond. There is a little hiking trail around the property that was very relaxing and great to hike on. We also went fishing and cruised around the pond in a pedal boat. The pavilion was awesome and had electricity with ceiling fans and everything you would need to cook up your dinner. The hosts Steve and Robin are great people for sure. They were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. We couldn't ask for better hosts. Wonderful people. There are so many great things to say about this place. We can't wait to come back. If you're looking for a romantic getaway with your loved one then this place is perfect. I highly recommend!
I had a great time doing a solo overnighter in the jungle! I hiked down the muddy road that was overgrown with plant life. There has been so much rain in Central Texas lately I should have figured it would be a bit wild out there. Elijah the host was great and easy to get ahold of when I missed my turn looking for the place. I'm really glad I brought my hammock with a mosquito net because there were insects everywhere! A little bug spray and fire kept them at bay. I felt completely alone and isolated out there which was exactly what I needed to clear my mind. I saw a very large wild pig when I was hiking around. Be careful collecting firewood. I did see some scorpions. I would love to go back to Thorngully ranch in the fall once they get it trimmed up some. I didn't quite feel comfortable walking through the tall grasses down to the river. Anyways, if your looking for a very primitive adventure then check this place out. It won't disappoint!
My wife and I did an overnighter at Briers Ranch and it was exactly what we were looking for. If you enjoy real primitive camping without running water, electricity or restrooms then this is the place for you. There were so many great places to set up camp. We parked the car and hiked to a nice open space surrounded by pine trees. There are very large pine and oak trees all over the camping area. It is a working ranch with cattle so there are cow patties all around. Just watch your step. Gary the host was very accommodating and gave us good directions for finding the place. I hope to go back to the beautiful Briers Ranch again very soon with my daughter. I highly recommend this place if you hate camping at state parks or around other people.
The lake is beautiful and clean no doubt about that, but I was completely disappointed with my campsite at the Lakeview campgrounds. I understand it was July 4th weekend and I knew it would be crowded, but I didn't expect to have a loud, large family of about 30 right next to my site. The fire pit was on the wrong side and was about 12 feet from our neighbors. Really awkward because they were facing us. I booked this particular site because the pictures showed it had a stand up grill to cook on. It did not only the fire pit grill. The rangers were nice but they were no help since they couldn't move the fire pit for us. Our neighbors were loud until midnight and kept shining their truck lights in our tents. We packed up the next morning.
