Texas isn’t all flat. These Texas Hill Country RV parks are a great base camp to explore the crossroads where West Texas, South Texas, and Central Texas meet.

Most of the hills stretch around 500 feet above the valleys and plains. Packsaddle Mountain stretches 800 feet above the Llano River. The country’s second-largest granite dome, Enchanted Rock, is found in Texas Hill Country.
The area offers a wide range of fun activities, including kayaking on the Medina River, exploring caverns, swimming in natural spring waters, visiting the Apple Capital of Texas, and exploring some of the small towns you will find while traveling two-lane roads. You won’t regret spending time in San Marcos, New Braunfels, and Luckenbach (the smallest community in Texas). With over 50 wineries in Hill Country, you’re sure to discover a new favorite wine.
Be sure and visit Colorado Bend State Park and Inks Lake State Park. You will see lots of prickly pear cactus and yucca, as well as Texas Live Oak and Asha Juniper trees. The Guadalupe, Frio, Medina, San Antonio, and Nueces Rivers all start in Hill Country.
