Availability

Available most of the time except late July/August (and you really don't want to be camping in Central Texas at that time of year anyway; way too hot, which is why we're usually at the cabin up north).

Access Road Conditions

In between Austin & San Antonio, just west of Wimberley... with easy access on main roads; there's a short unpaved (caliche) road to the gate but it is wide and well maintained. Main gate entry is wide enough for any size vehicle; back gate areas are best for 30' or less or smaller trailers. Gate code will be provided. Circle drive is up by the house (longer vehicles may need to back up once to make the turn). For larger RVs, travel trailers or 5th wheels, we are happy to move our RV and you can just park where we keep ours if you don't want to drive off the road a bit. We'll show em all to you when you get here and let you decide.

Site Description

We have a small private ranch in between Austin & San Antonio in the Texas Hill Country - just west of Wimberley TX - complete with Longhorns, deer and all sorts of wild critters. This is our private residence; it has a security gate and plenty of country room.

There are several different places a 'Boondocker' can park overnight: In a manicured open field by an old iron gazebo and fruit trees; By the well shed (a bit more secluded feel); Along the gravel drive by the main house; or you can go thru the back gate to the pasture to a perfectly level area... or drive down by the pond and pitch camp - we'll let you pick what you want. We do have a spot with 30amp and water if you need. Just know that we are in the Hill Country so most places are not perfectly level; you may need to level out a bit for your stay. Campfires by the rig are welcome... and there's wood around the property. There are several great areas in the trees for the kids to pitch a tent of their own and be totally secluded... but still close by. No hour or age restrictions - you can come & go as you want while you're here. All we ask is that we have contact info for you, meet you on arrival and to show you around, and that we can verify your drivers license.

In most cases, you're OK to use the pool, hike through the trees, feed the chickens, watch the Longhorns, etc. There's even an outdoor archery range you can use if you are an archer (shots up to 100 yards). Please just ask us first, treat our home as your own and leave it all the way you found it.

A Little More Detail

We're an 'almost retired' couple that love everything RV... and can't wait till we can go full-time. Till then, we've got a small ranch just west of Wimberley and are happy to welcome fellow RVers to stay a night while traveling. You can boondock out in the pasture on level ground or drive by the pond and level up for the night. You can just stay on the drive by the house or pull up by the gazebo and fruit trees. If you need, we can hook you up with 30 amp and water, but no septic is available.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

In the middle of nowhere, preferably by a river or lake.

RusticRobert are amazing hosts! They are so warm and welcoming. They are as available as you need and as present as desired. Robert responded quickly to our inquiry.

We were traveling from San Antonio to Austin and we weren’t planning on stopping on the way, but we are so glad we did!

Robert set us up with our pick of boondocking sites on their beautiful ranch, and ran electrical out to us.

They provided great local recommendations, including a travel guide for Wimberley. We are so glad to have met these wonderful people!
