Getting outdoors

Make the most out of your trip and enjoy the beauties of Lost Maples State Natural Area both during the day and at night. Stargazing is one of the favorite attractions among visitors. You'll get the tools you need to identify the perfect conditions for observing objects, like the Bortle Dark-Sky Scale, Clear Sky Chart, and real-time dark sky monitoring.

Fill your backpack and explore the park on foot. You can start with Maple Trail or East-West Trail, as these two are easier to traverse and will take you underneath the shade of magnificent trees near the Sabinal River. For a more challenging and lengthy walk, pick East Trail, West Trail, or West Loop Trail. These trails pass pristine creeks and streams, an Ashe juniper grove, and craggy canyon terrain.

Birding and wildlife viewing are both favorite pastimes and provide an opportunity to learn about the area's ecology. Lost Maples State Natural Area will definitely spark an interest for this hobby, as it shelters a number of rare and endangered species you're unlikely to see anywhere else. Golden-cheeked warbler, green kingfisher, mountain bluebird, and black-capped vireo are just some of the rare species that can be seen here. You can get a guide book for a detailed insight into which species are regularly here and during which season.

Fishing is allowed, and anglers aren't required to have a license to cast a line in the river. The river is shallow though, so boating and kayaking aren't permitted here.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?
