With the various rivers throughout Texas Hill Country, kayaking has become a staple sport in this area. Both Garner State Park with the Frio river and Wes Cooksey Park with the Nueces river are great areas to go kayaking. Race with friends and locals or go fishing while on one of the rivers.
Note: Campo Rio does not offer kayaking in the Nueces River.
Being located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Campo Rio offers one of the best opportunities for stargazing. Surrounded by mountains that are part of the Edwards plateau, it is like an looking up in an observatory each night on the ranch. No need to make camp with our cabins providing shelter, and be sure to bring around a telescope.
