My wife and I haven't been able to take a vacation alone together in years. We had just bought a travel trailer and we had a different place booked but then covid happened and they cancelled on us. We were worried that we weren't going to get some time together but then we found mystic quarry and let me say it was amazing. The owners did everything they could do to help us when we got there and during our stay. They offer river floating from a nearby tube rental place that will come pick you up and drop you back off at the camp ground. So much to do between the hiking trails, pool, hot tub, horseshoes, bocca ball courts, fishing at the nearby canyon lake. It was an amazing time and we will definitely be back.
The hiking is beautiful! This was my first time swimming in a spring. As you walk into the lake (walk fast if you dont want to get bitten) you will find pockets if cooler water spouting up. Its kinda like stepping into a refridgerator but underwater. Personally my camping experience was ruined by the generator a couple spots down - constantly on and did not take a break - so it kinda ruined the beauty of the outdoor experience for me. But this is truly a beautiful place!
We enjoyed the palmetto palms and boggy area. We couldn’t believe we were in Texas. There is a nice swimming area for children and a few good fishing spots. The best thing was that we had a Bucees about 2 miles away. We bought great BBQ sandwiches and the best fudge available here in Texas.
We loved the quiet and peace of this RV Resort nestled in Texas Hill Country.
The Park: they have a large pool area with cafe and snacks. The property is large and spaces are spread out through out the park. The big draw is the Guadalupe River, Canyon Lake, and the woods and hills.
They have hot shoes, bath houses, laundry.
The sites: Gravel and mostly level, very few sites were unlevel. You’re surrounded by hills so it is nice and quiet. They are full hook up sites. Each site had a fire ring and picnic table. Small deer herds would move through the park each evening. Many of the campers feed them corn and they know the sounds and come running out of the hills.
The campground is near grocery and hardware stores. Within an hour are several bigger towns with more stores.
Cellular: T-Mobile was decent but not great. They do have Campground WiFi that worked faster.
We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the RV spots in this state park. So much room!
- Large sites.
- Lots of easy trails.
- Plenty of recreational opportunities.
- If you miss the turn off to the 2nd loop of campsites, there is no place to turn around for miles.
- The entrance road to campsite loop is really only 1.5 lanes wide, except at the turnoff. There is no shoulder.
Stayed 2 weeks at the end of February. Very clean, well maintained, didn’t feel too crowded on neighbors. Mix of full/long timers and some of us Nomads. A few social events but not a wide variety of activities. Only down-side was the road noise. Only a 2 lane road out front but more noise than expected. And sometimes disturbed the outdoor time. Didn’t hear the noise with the RV all closed up. Liquor store, gas/convince, couple restaurants within walking distance. Small brewery less than a mile down the road.
Camped here a long time ago, so this is my recollection. First get your reservations as they are a must. This place is close to Austin, so it gets crowded. The water here is fun and pretty, great flat hikes over pitted and scoured rocks. Snapping turtles in the water. Camp sites are nice, flat dirt with plenty of big oaks all around, fire pits, tables, and lantern holders provided. Nice spacing and all kinds of rigs can fit in here. I don’t recall that they have hookups. Bird watching is great here. All around a great state park. Reason for four stars: the park is being surrounded, literally, by urban development, and when hiking on the trails you often can come right up to it. So the tranquility of the area is impacted. Come here for a bit of nature, with easy access to services. Don’t expect to be out in the middle of nowhere. We came with a 35 foot fifth wheel and loved our site. Would definitely come again if in the area.
