Review and Rating of Blue River Camp in Kingsbury, Texas
If you're looking for a fun and unique glamping experience then you need to check out Blue River Camp. Glamping is the new fad and it means glorious or luxury camping - to me, it means camping without the pain of having to set up a tent, sleep on an air mattress that leaks, and not have any water or electricity.
Blue River Camp has tents for overnight rental, a couple cabins to rent, and some really cool tiki cabanas on the San Marcos River, and several amenites, including the San Marcos River for tubing, fishing, swimming, or just relaxing.
Blue River Camp is part of Best Texas Travel which has several really cool vacation rental properties ranging from treehouses to tents to tipis. Read about our fun Weekend Adventure at Son's Island, which is Blue River Camp's sister property in Seguin.
When we visited Blue River Camp in early 2018 they had just opened and we had a blast - read about our stay at Blue River Camp. We stayed in one of the glamping tents which had two soft double beds, fans, and a small table. Outside each tent is a picnic table, water spicket, and electric hookups.
There were 18 glamping tents and more were planned. On the bank of the San Marcos River are one and two-story tiki cabanas for rent. Each of the cabanas has a fan, chairs and tables, a Webber grill, picnic table, hammock, and water and electric. On the edge and sometimes in the River are picnic tables, chairs, and canopies for rent.
Some of the other amenities at Blue River Camp include:
All of the above make for a very fun and unique weekend or day visit for families or a get together with friends.
During our visit, our typical day was started by driving into nearby Kingsbury (less than 5 minutes) for a big breakfast. Breakfast was followed by:
After dinner in Kingsbury, we would play games and roast marshmallows around the firepit. Then a good night's sleep in the tent followed by a beautiful sunrise with the wind rustling the leaves and birds singing.
When we visited we didn't have time or any desire to explore any nearby activities.
