    Johnson City, Texas

    Flowing over and around huge slabs of limestone, the Pedernales River can be turbulent. But most often it is tranquil, and a great place to relax and recharge. We are just 30 miles west of Austin. Come over for an afternoon swim or hike, or load up your gear for an overnight adventure. The river awaits!

    Choose a site with water and electricity or hike to a primitive site. Bring your group to the Youth Group Camp or Equestrian Group Camp.

    Spring Branch, Texas

    Guadalupe River RV Park is located just three miles West of US Hwy 281 or just 7 miles North of Texas Hwy 46 (24.5 miles Northwest of New Braunfels Texas) on Spring Branch Road on the crown jewel of the Hill Country, the beautiful Guadalupe River. Welcome to the Beautiful Texas Hill Country. We have created a family oriented RV park and campgrounds that we hope to further develop to become a resort that you will want to return to year after year. Within the park there is seven-tenths of a mile of Guadalupe River frontage. One man made access point that is a stone stairway down to the river. All other access points are natural.

    The Texas-sized RV spaces are some of the largest in the industry with 97' pull-thus that are 39 feet wide totaling over 3,500 square feet of space! There are also some smaller RV sites for the more compact units. Spacious tile restrooms and showers are located within close proximity to the tent camping area and the RV sites. Long and short term guests are welcome, and whether you are on your own or have a large group, we welcome all with fun and friendly service.

    Listen to Onion Creek flowing over limestone ledges and splashing into pools. Follow trails winding through the Hill Country woods. Explore the remains of an early Texas homestead and a very old rock shelter. All of this lies within Austin’s city limits at McKinney Falls State Park - what are you waiting for?

    Think of the park as Austin’s backyard; we’re just 13 miles from the state capitol. Here you can camp, hike, mountain or road bike, geocache, go bouldering, and picnic. You can also fish and swim in Onion Creek.

    Onion Creek can flood after rainfall. Beware of the creek’s flow; contact the park for current creek conditions. Read through our swimming safety tips before you visit.

    Stay at one of 81 campsites (all with water and electric hookups). Or rent one of our six newly remodeled cabins. We also have a primitive youth camping area, for use by nonprofit-sponsored youth groups

    Willow City, Texas

    Welcome to Moss Lake Area at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area in Texas! This spot is a gem for those who love a good hike and a bit of rustic camping. The campground is tent-only, so leave the RV at home. You'll be setting up your tent with a stunning view of the granite dome, which is the main attraction here.

    The hiking trails are the real highlight. The Summit Trail is a must-do, though it can be a leg-burner. It's only half a mile, but the climb is worth every step for the panoramic views at the top. If you're up for a longer trek, the Loop Trail offers a 4.6-mile journey around the dome, giving you different perspectives of this massive rock formation. Just be prepared for some rocky sections and bring plenty of water—shade is scarce.

    Camping here is pretty basic. There are vault toilets, but you'll need to bring your own water and supplies. Fires aren't allowed, so plan your meals accordingly. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friend along for the adventure.

    Visitors have mentioned that the park can get crowded, especially on weekends, so it's a good idea to make a reservation. The closest gas station is about 18 miles away in Fredericksburg, and cell service is spotty, so plan ahead.

    Whether you're here for a day hike or an overnight stay, Moss Lake Area offers a rugged, scenic experience that's hard to beat. Just remember to pack in everything you need and pack out all your trash to keep this natural area pristine for everyone. Enjoy your stay!
