The Great Outdoors

This part of central Texas is largely agricultural, but there are several pockets of wilderness, and exploring them is made more convenient when you rent a camper. The Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is a unique geological wonder in Texas. The “Enchanted Rock” consists of pink granite stone, and it is the largest monadnock (essentially, a rocky knoll) in the United States.In addition to hiking some-11 miles of trails, rock climbing is a popular activity. Note that rock climbers must sign in at the park office and fill out a release waiver, also. Climbers are also prohibited from employing sport-climbing tools; the use of pitons and fixed (also known as permanent) bolts is forbidden. Multi-pitch climbs are possible in several spots on the Enchanted Rock. Bring your cameras and telescopes. Though Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is relatively close to Austin, TX, the distance is significant enough that skywatchers can observe several celestial objects with the naked eye. The park rangers often host star parties during the summer months.Given how exposed and bare Enchanted Rock State Natural Area seems, it’s natural to conclude that wildlife doesn’t dwell in this area. On the contrary, there are several small animals in addition to white-tailed deer and pronghorns, such as armadillos, rabbits, and coyotes. Bats, too, often soar the skies at dusk in hunt of insects.For a change of scenery, head into the bowels of the Earth. Visitors can go spelunking in the Cave Without a Name under the watchful eye of a guide. Ancient stalagmites and stalactites line the ceiling and floor. Delicate soda straws, draperies, and flowstones are still growing and becoming larger, though at a pace slower than a snail’s. Visitors can also try their hand at finding and cracking geodes and mining for precious gems.

Exploring the Area

It’s a long drive in between towns in Texas where everything, even distances, is super-sized. Traveling from town to town is made effortless by renting a motorhome. The long miles roll by in a blink of an eye. Small towns have created various attractions and features in an effort to draw visitors. Kerrville created a serene sculpture garden called the Coming King Sculpture Prayer Gardens. Visitors stroll through the peaceful gardens where unique statues and sculptures are surrounded by native Texas plants and flowers. Reflect on Christianity or simply admire the craftsmanship that went into creating these works of art.The American version of Stonehenge can be found in Ingram. Approximately a third smaller than the original version, Stonehenge II and a nearby replica of the Easter Island were created on a local artist’s whim. Today, the roadside attraction draws tens of thousands of visitors every year.Although many people choose to RV camp at Texas Wine Country Jellystone Park Camp-Resort because of its proximity to vineyards, beer lovers, and whiskey connoisseurs need not dismay. The distillery and craft-beer scene has been booming since the early 2000s, and it’s now a thriving niche industry in Fredericksburg and Austin. Garrison Brothers Distillery, based in Hye, TX, is an award-winning producer of whiskey and bourbon. The distillery is open to tasting tours Wednesday through Sundays; however, note that they cannot legally sell bottles on Sunday.At the end of a long day of exploring the Texas countryside in an Airstream rental and hiking, kick up your heels by a crackling campfire. Overhead, stars twinkle merrily as bats swoop about in search of delicious insects. Book an RV in Gillespie County, and set out to find your perfect RV camping adventure in central Texas.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
