    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!

      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.
