Plus!!  “Tranquil creek bottoms, rugged canyons, and scenic plateaus invite you to the 40 miles of trails. You’re sure to be intrigued as you discover the diverse ecosystems and cultural history that await on the adventure ahead”

AND it’ll be very close to the new moon… so STARS!!

Member Only Information:

We have our very own area of the park that is even gated!  No other campers nearby!

We’re headed to Hill Country State Natural Area!  We have a 4 bedroom house with a kitchen and 1.5 baths.  Plus camping and RV spots.


Hiking: There are over 40 miles of trails within the park!  With elevation reaching almost 2,000 feet!  

Star gazing:  It’s going to be a new moon on the 23rd so the sky should be pretty dark while we’re there.  Bring your telescopes!

Horseback Trail Riding:  $140 for a 3-hour trail ride.  NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE!  Looks like there are multiple options.  4 hours plus lunch. 2-hour sunset ride, etc.  

Dutch Oven Restoration 101:  As long as there is no burn ban, I’ll be restoring some of my dutch ovens.  Few others I’ll use for our community meals.  You by no means have to help but if you’re interested, you’re more than welcome.


Fees include accommodations for 3 nights, 3 dinners, 3 breakfasts & 2 lunches, and firewood.
