1) The Weather

The “winter weather” here in the hill country isn’t like winter in our country’s northern areas. Our average daily weather in the winter months from December through February sees daily highs in the 60’s and lows at night in the 50’s. This beautiful winter climate means you can get out and experience all of the fantastic activities the area has to offer during the day while staying warm and comfortable around a campfire and in your RV’s at night.

2) The Landscape

Texas hill country has some of the most interesting landscapes you will find in the state of Texas. Located in central and south Texas, this area is known for its rugged limestone and granite hills, sprawling valleys, and expansive plains. Home to the Llano uplift (the second largest granite dome in the USA), along with many springs, rivers, and lakes, there is always more to see. The drive from Camp Wood to Media is considered one of the most beautiful scenic drives in Texas.

The people of Texas hill country are some of the most welcoming and diverse people you will find anywhere. We take pride in being welcoming and helpful to all visitors who come through our neck of the woods and hope you take some time to get to know us.
