8. “Best Vacation Ever” Photo Contest

Returning for a 3rd year, our “Best Vacation Ever” Photo Contest continues be a camper favorite, as well as a favorite of ours! We loved seeing everyone’s awesome camping photos and awarding a winner at the end of the season!

7. Facility Renovations

The bathrooms and laundry facility attached to the Rec Hall were gutted and redone in 2019, providing a fresh new space for all of our campers to use. We appreciated all of our campers’ patience as these renovations took place – the final product is great!

6. Exciting Weekly Events

We had a jam-packed schedule of events this year! From Kids’ Revenge Week to Superheroes Weekend, we had a great time welcoming a different theme each week! Psst…our 2020 events calendar is out and there’s tons to look forward to! Check it out here.

5. Cartoon Café Renovations

The Cartoon Café was completely renovated in 2019 – and the results are spectacular! Located near the outdoor pools, the Cartoon Café is convenient for quick snacks or lunch breaks during your family’s day full of fun.

4. River Rock Pub & Pizzeria Renovations

We loved watching the transformation of the River Rock Pub & Pizzeria as it underwent renovations towards the beginning of 2019. We are happy to say that the Pub & Pizzeria is available to use and even better than ever! Grab a brick oven pizza, cocktail, and more – this is an ideal spot to sit back and relax.

3. Arcade Alley

After moving homes during the construction of the Water Zone a couple of years ago, our arcade games were available to use in the Cartoon Café. However, in 2019, we established a new Arcade Alley for all of our campers to enjoy! Playing in the arcade is the perfect opportunity to take a break from the Texas sun by having tons of fun indoors.

2. Water Slides

Over the weekend of May 17-19, we had the best time celebrating the grand opening of our 4 brand new water slides with all of our campers! Not only did our campers get to try out the Guadaloop-de-loop, River Racers, and Kerrville Korkscrew, but we also had special entertainment such as live mermaids and stilt walkers. Over their 1st summer in operation, our water slides have proven to be a new camper favorite!

1. Our Campers

While we do have a beautiful Camp-Resort with great amenities, what really puts a smile on our face is seeing our campers return each season. Whether you’re popping in for a quick weekend getaway or you’re visiting for a full week, we can’t help but feel very grateful when we get to welcome you back.


And that’s a wrap! Our 10 best moments from 2019! We can’t wait to make more memories with all of our campers in 2020!
