        Fredericksburg, Texas

        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.

          Guadalupe Canoe Livery

          Spring Branch, Texas

          Established in 1971, Guadalupe Canoe Livery is committed to your safe and enjoyable river experience. Campgrounds dating back to the 1930's. We offer six canoe, kayak, raft, or tube trips on the Upper Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake from Nichol's Landing to the 311 bridge.

          We are not under any of the New Braunfels restrictions. Enjoy floating the Beautiful Upper Guadalupe River as it twists and turns through private property and the Guadalupe River State Park. This 23-mile stretch of river has several Class I & II rapids and waterfalls.

          The Upper Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake is about 15 degrees warmer than the River below, which gets its water released from the bottom of the dam. We have Jackson Riviera kayaks, Hyside rafts, and high-grade tubes that come with or without a bottom. Come on a whim, first come first serve.
