It’s time to start planning your spring and summer Texas Hill Country road trips, and this one is long overdue! Considering Texas is generally so overflowing with natural beauty, and the Texas Hill Country is no exception to this rule, a drive to any of these gorgeous places won’t leave you lacking in awe or amazement. The entire trip can easily be done in a day, but we’d recommend a long weekend or a couple of extra days off work in order to appreciate the ride and fully take in the sites. Considering campgrounds are in close proximity to each of these locales, this makes for a great warm weather, camping-road trip through the Hill Country.

One of the most beautiful spots to stop and take a breather in the warm weather is at Hamilton Pool, located in Dripping Springs. Its overhang of limestone, with a picturesque waterfall pouring over the top toward the rocks below, pales only in comparison to the turquoise pool into which it flows. It has to be one of the Hill Country’s finer stops on a road trip, and camping is easily accessible at this link.
