“It lives up to it's name - Utopia”
Reviewed November 30, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This stay in Utopia was great! Our entire extended family stayed in the Fortress for Thanksgiving - including Alaskans ready for a green holiday! The two downstairs rooms were big, one with a double sized jacuzzi tub - the other room thoughtfully architected to the back of the house for those with little ones or elderly persons who may need a bit of quiet once in awhile. We had a large screen TV for football and small children's movies. The kitchen was able to handle all of us women and food we brought to cook for the Thanksgiving dinner. The fridge was large enough for all the goodies and the leftovers. Upstairs were three loft bed groupings and those lodging up there had their own bath. Fantastic!

The Outdoors lent to a wondrous area for fireside groups to chat under the huge Texas stars and large Oak trees! The land surrounding was great for the kids to run and play; the Sabinal river held mysteries for those inclined for exploration, and long walks amongst the Cypress trees. Yep, Utopia River Retreat stood up completely to its name - Utopia!

Written by a Great "Mama" who had a fabulous time!

My husband and I were looking for a peaceful getaway for Labor Day weekend. We found it at Utopia River Retreat. We had a wonderful 3 days here. This place is serene and beautiful. The river was clean and inviting. The manager Skye was great to deal with. We will be back!

Holy Cow is this place gorgeous!! There were about 30 of us here for a family reunion so we had family in The Fortress and other cabins. Every cabin was beautifully decorated, very clean and the beds super comfortable. The AC was nice and cold. The wifi worked perfectly.

The absolute best part was the Utopia River right behind the cabins. The view from our cabin could not be beat and swimming in the river was even better! We also enjoyed some competitive volley ball in the swimming pool.

There are plenty of things to do around the area such as tubing, restaurants featured on various Food Network shows, wineries and the fun town of Bandera. We had the best time and look forward to coming back again for another reunion because this campground can't be beat!
