What you can look forward to when vacationing with us...
Take a family
vacation in the
beautiful Nueces Canyon and discover a refreshingly unspoiled part of
the Texas Hill Country that has been referred to as "the best kept
secret in Texas." Mill Wheel has been a favorite spot to swim from the
early 1920's. Over this deep hole of water on the bank of the river are
huge oak trees, picnic tables and a patio with steps leading to the
water's edge. This is a beautiful private piece of property for our
guests to relax and watch the evening sun as it disappears behind the
The River House is just South of this area and sits on the bank of the river. The Cottage and the Lodge are located on the front part of the property just a short walk away. The Quilter's Cottage lies about midway from the front part of the property and the river. They are all situated on about 20 acres of land just at the edge of Camp Wood giving you plenty of space to roam about and yet close enough to walk to everything.
With the wildflowers abloom, the abundant wildlife, the birds and butterflies and fireflies flittering by, this is a beautiful, wonderful, peaceful and relaxing place in God's creation to make some memories and treat yourself to a time of refreshing in your life.
Nueces Canyon is just over the mountain from Leakey and Con Can in the Frio Canyon. Garner State Park and Lost Maples National Park are located nearby. Uvalde is 40 miles from Camp Wood and Cuidad Acuna, Mexico 80 miles. Lake Nueces and Cooksey Park are four miles South of Camp Wood and going North on Highway 55, Sonora Caverns are about 80 miles North.
Nueces Canyon is made up of four little towns, Camp Wood, Barksdale, Vance & Montell, which are located in three counties, Real, Edwards and Uvalde. Over the years people have come here and gone back home owning a little slice of heaven on earth. This is truly God's Country!
