Geocaching is a great pastime to enjoy when camping in the Hill Country. Perfect for all ages, most Texas state parks and other private camping locations offer a variety of caching stashes to hunt while enjoying the great outdoors. All you need is a GPS enabled device, a geocaching app or coordinates, and a creative mind to turn any camping trip into a modern day treasure hunt.

Our daily routines often leave little time for stress relief, exercise and wellness. The good news is getting out into the great outdoors is actually good for you. Camping in the Texas Hill Country sunshine boosts Vitamin D, which assists with bone, muscle and skin health. Additionally, camping increases endorphins, and helps fight pain and stress. Hill Country camping also provides you with more opportunities to burn calories at an increased rate.

A bright campfire below the outstretched canopy of the Texas skies is an indescribable joy. The quiet crackle of the flame, sparks dancing into the Texas sky, and mouthwatering campfire cooking are just a few reasons why Hill Country campfires are second to none. Under the clearest skies in Texas, a Hill Country campfire is the perfect way to close out your day after an adventure filled day in the hills.
