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.
I Love this park. Several miles of hiking trails. The Pedernales river flows for miles through the park, so you can go swimming with others or find your own spot. Primitive sites consist of a two mile hike-in. They are far away from regular campsites, making you feel like you have the park to yourself.
Beautiful park, awesome trails and a beautiful waterfall, perfect place to go for beautiful river access
I stayed at the Pedernales Falls SP campground en route to Big Bend. It was late July and the park was full. Severe thunderstorms blew through during the night and I was worried that the falls would be flooded. I was pleasantly surprised, the water drained quickly and the falls were accessible in the morning.
