Pedernales

I suppose it would have been better if you get a decent campsite. Backing in the RV, door opened into a spiky bush. Turned the RV around and couldn’t level. The covered table was so far away in another campsites “backyard”. No Wifi or satellite for miles. Couldn’t use the phone for…

Hill Country Haven

Another Texas State park that shines! Sites are big and even though pretty close to the other sites still feels very secluded! Picnic table with shelter and Fire Pit with grilling included. Restroom and Showers close enough to every campsite! Firewood and Ice sold on site just pay attention to…

Braving August - 10th Anniversary Camping Trip

For us, August is the hottest, and least desirable month to go camping, and at Pedernales State Park it is their wettest month of the year: Hot and rainy, so why go camping? Because we’re Covid-bored, and our 10th Wedding Anniversary is in August, and we’re still amped about the purchase of our new…

First day sad day

My first time there. I witnessed a young boy being pulled out by another young boy for drowning. Didn’t want my kids to see what was happening so I left. Would definitely camp there though.

The park is nice , access to river to relax and cool off. 80 percent of the park is residents the only spots available for weekends is in direct sun. If you want a fire you need to rent a fire ring and buy the wood from them. The staff was not real friendly. There’re was only one young lady there…

Beautiful, peaceful, close to Austin

This is a beautiful and huge camp ground with lots of nature to admire. The camp sites are spacious and feel very private, yet you don't feel alone with other campers nearby you. We had a stunning full hook up camp site with a climbable tree and took a hike to the waterfalls! There's lots of hiking…

Quick Overnight Trip

Arrived a little late but got set up in time to mingle with one of the homeless gentlemen who’s a frequent camper there. We drove up, parked, and got set up. No one ever greeted us nor checked us in. Also there’s no posted or briefed quiet hours so people were up and loud all night and we’ll into…

Great biking!

This park is a great stop if you are on your way from Houston to Austin.  It's actually connected to Bastrop State Park by an 11 mile road that is mostly used for cycling.  And that's exactly what we did!  There was very little road traffic and the views were great!  There are also several scenic…

My Second Time At Pedernales Falls & The Best Yet!!

I camped at Pedernales Falls back in November of 2020. The river was running low, but it was still a great visit. However, I camped again this year in June and the water was running at 70% above normal. It was great for viewing the river, swimming and taking photos. Again, the rangers and staff…

Awesome place to take a family

well enough to kayak. The views were awesome and the trail was nice enough for bikes. The only downfall was the campsites were a little too close together. But they had a lot of shade and a fire ring. And a nice pad to set everything up. Good beginner campsite.

Wildflowers and Cool Showers

We are newbies with no experience pulling a trailer. We’ve previously been tent campers, but Covid-isolation affected our brains, and we bought a Cargo trailer that we’re converting into a comfortable travel trailer for the 2 of us. We are retired, and contemplating just living out of our…

Quiet

We have a pull behind. We were very surprised at how level our gravel campsite was. It made setup a breeze. The loop makes backing into your spot easy. The wifi is decent. We have enjoyed the hiking trails down by the water and the playground for our kids.
