Chasing Shade at Inks Lake

September 2021

We took our first trip to Inks this week, camping there Sunday through Wednesday. We got lucky that the temperatures those days dipped into the high 80s for us, as they had been in the mid to high 90s for months. When we arrived we were told that the spot we reserved wasn’t…

One of my favorite State Parks

This is one of my favorite State parks. The water sites are so beautiful and the sunsets are amazing. We love kayaking over to Devils waterin’ Hole. There are also a lot of beautiful hiking trails that go up and around the granite out droppings. My favorite time to visit is the spring when the…

Probably my favorite park for a quick trip

I’ve stayed here lots of times in tent sites, RV sites, and the cabins. I like them all and especially love the hikes and swimming.

So nice but watch out for spontaneous rivers when it rains!

Love the park. The spots by the river are shaded and great. Saw armadillos! Enjoyed the trails. But we had a heavy rain storm and we were at the bottom of a hill so the water flowed in a path right through our site and our tent literally floated. But then it dried up and was fine.

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…

Scenic 360 Views of the Hill Country

30 minutes out from downtown Fredericksburg for those not doing overnight stay. Prior to enter park there are many flashing signs stating you must have a reservation before entry. When entering park you can stay all day but come at designated entry time. Due to the popularity of the park and time…

Very Clean Fishing Camp

Lots of level, grassy, shaded sites.

The front part is for rv hookups, with the back road (will need a higher clearance vehicle) for tent/car camping. Lots of places to access the river. They also have a pool, the springs, showers and a bathroom, as well as cabins.

Primitive Site hike is beautiful

Sites were isolated, though we could still somewhat see our neighbors. Ground was even. Favorite part of the site was definitely the hike out.

Wonderful place to camp and hike

We loved Inks and will definitely return. The park was clean, the bathrooms were well maintained and the staff was really helpful.  No issues..everyone minded their business.  We always like to leave the place better than we found it and there was not alot of trash.  Lots of good hiking trails and…

Great River Campsite

Located in a shady river valley, hills and large trees provide late evening shade to the whole campground. There are water faucets, a rinse shower and composting toilets but no plumbing restroom facility. Campsite 17 is not shady during high sun hours but toward the late afternoon and early evening…

Mostly good

No sewer hookups, dump station only. It rained while we were there in late June and flies and mosquitoes were numerous. Nice lake that you can wade out for 50 feet. We are T mobile and there is no service for us. Had to drive 15 miles into Burnet to make a phone call. Verizon campers next door…

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…
