About

Camp sites are in a large cow pasture across the street from Bankersmith Dance Hall and Saloon. Please don't come expecting Yosemite or the Ritz Carlton. This is as primitive as it gets. Conveniently located in Fredericksburg, Texas off the famous and beautiful Old Highway 9. A short 7 miles from downtown Fredericksburg, these primitive RV and primitive campsites are close to Luckenbach, the Old Bat Tunnel and Alamo Springs Burger. In fact the campsite is directly across the street and a short walking distance to the historic Bankersmith Dance Hall and Saloon. Guests can enjoy this Texas Original with concerts, festivals most weekends or even just by stopping by for live music(played daily) and a cold drink. The Saloon is open 7 days a week! Campers are of course allowed to bring in food or drink on the campgrounds but it may be easier to enjoy the food from Bankersmith’s Restaurant and Full Bar literally across the street! Hamburgers, Chicken Wings, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches and a whole lot more(even Fried Bull Testicles)! This Bankersmith Texas Campground is primitive on site but guests are welcome to use both the restrooms and water sources across the street, in the Saloon, when open. The camping grounds are on a open field close to the entrance of the parking. Campers are not to go through the second gate due to live stock.

Laid back Texas hill country camping

The picturesque drive to Bankersmith, TX via old San Antonio Rd is worth the trip alone! Lovely wildflowers along the way. Once off old San Antonio the private road into the camp is crushed gravel. Some ruts when I was there, but totally passable. I just went slowly. There was a bobcat there so it appears the road in is maintained after Texas gully washers. 

Camp Bankersmith is dry camping (generator use ok)  in a fairly level cow pasture with pretty hill country views. Fire pits were available at each “site” when I stayed, but because this pasture is grass I assume fires may be restricted depending on the fire risk. This camping experience can be as communal or as private as you’d like, depending on who is camping while you’re there. Met some really great folks during my stay. On a clear night the stars are amazing and the full moon didn’t disappoint either! 

The ranch’s equestrian expert invited me to take a ride into town in a carriage pulled by 2 beautiful horses.  Awesome experience! Check out the ranch's resident camel and other animals, and make sure to visit the famous Bankersmith Saloon just down the road. Great folks, burgers and brews! Also, another must see is located just south on old San Antonio Rd. Visit the Old Tunnel State Park which is home to thousands of bats.
