Great views from premium waterfront RV sites. Tent sites are between 2 waters-rivers. They sell homemade tamales at the office. Yummy. Quiet, small, view property in between Kerrville and Ingram. Unique property. Didn't see the bathrooms, small pool, nice office. We'll be back!

The facility was nice, we paid for the upgraded RV site on the river. It was very pretty and well shaded, it also had full hookups. I used the showers, it had plenty of hot water and it was very clean. The only complaint I have is I HAVE NEVER, had so many flies in my camping area, I must... More

We love staying here! We have been coming to By The River for 6 years. The campsites are always well maintained, and have very clean bathrooms. The river has shallow areas and deeper areas for swimming. The island is beautiful for riding bikes, bird watching and tent camping. This is definitely one of our favorite places to stay!

We like it here because it is very peaceful, can walk across bridge over river and it is centrally located between Fredericksburg and Bandera. Plenty of great restaurants close by. We are full time travelers now, but usually stay at least a month in one place. There is plenty to keep us busy here. Especially during wildflower season. The bluebonnets... More

Have camped there about 3 different times. We loved the peace and quiet and the beauty of the area. Huge Cypress trees line the Guadalupe River and there are picnic spots to enjoy the view. Best time to go would be in the Fall when it is cooler.

This has been the worst campsite we have had all summer and we had been on the road traveling for three months. We were given a campsite that has a pole lamp that shines in the TV all night long and the campsite is next to the dumpsters so this am very early they are emptying the dumpsters. Never stay...

This is a beautiful, quiet place to stay. I stay here at least once or twice a year, spring and fall. I am a member of 'one of those motorcycle clubs' and in all my stays here (at least a dozen so far) I have yet to hear anyone revving their engines. Nor have I ever seen anyone driving in... More

We camped in our motorhome overlooking the Guadelupe River, surrounded by a natural setting. Lots of birders come here, also tent campers on the island. Plenty of places to hike around, very scenic setting on river. The couple who run it, and the owner's son, are really nice, welcoming, and great promoters of the Kerrville area. The bathrooms are a... More

I can't say that I had the honky-dory experience of the previous reviewers. My tent camping reservation by phone was good, when I arrived after 5 p.m. there was an envelope for me with my camping location marked "Hunter's Hollow." (Each of the tent camping spots is named rather than numbered.) That was the extent of my "good" experience with... More
