Hill Country State Natural Area Wilderness Primitive Camp
The Wilderness Primitive Camp is nestled back in this undeveloped park deep within the Hill Country. The route to the camp covers rocky hills, grasslands, oak and juniper groves, and swaths of sotol. The campground is little more than some shaded picnic tables and fire rings with a small, still pond nearby that invites contemplation. First-come, first-served, but don’t expect a crowd, although you can bring one—campground capacity is 40. Otherwise, your company will be butterflies, grasshoppers, birds, and in the evening, deer and armadillo.
