It is a very pretty state park with plenty of places to picnic or camp. The falls are beautiful. We were there just to picnic. The tables were not too close together, so you could enjoy the nature around you without being bothered by neighbors. The restrooms were clean.

Camped in a tent with my husband and 12 year old granddaughter. The campsites were nicely secluded. We were assigned a site but told we could drive by other available sites and change if we found one we liked better. We did find a site we preferred and all we had to do was go to the camp host's trailer... More

Located between Dripping Springs and Johnson City, Pedernales Falls is a great place for the outdoor enthusiast and family camper. From south Austin area, it took us about 35 mins to get to the campground. The Campground is clean, most sites have plenty of tress and shade and there are plenty of hiking trails for all levels. The campground has... More

Pedernales is a beautiful park, it is far enough from congested cities giving it a great night sky. The park is big, requires a lot of walking which shouldn't be a problem for those who love to experience the outdoors one on one. During Spring Break, the nights get cold and the water is also very cold so consider taking... More

We have a state park pass and this park had been on our list for awhile. Traveling with three boys, they loved it! We only went to the falls portion of the park, just a short walk down a path to get there. Beautiful views and you can easily walk around for hours exploring! Was a bit overcast when we... More

Camp sites are great. Nicely shaded. Not a long walk to the restrooms, which were clean. The one we had in my opinion is the best! #13 Kind of private, so my 3 dogs didn't do too much yapping. It is right to the side of the trail head for the Twin Falls. Gosh, the Twin Falls were definitely created... More

What a beautiful location in the Texas hill country. We will be back with a travel trailer to spend a few days here. A little bit of a hike but well worth it.

A beautiful place that is also fun for the whole family! You can enjoy the beauty of the falls and water pools (even on a very cloudy day as it happened to us) or you can go exploring the park and its rock formations. We just visited the park in February, which precluded any water related fun, but tubing and... More
