This year we are back at our original location. We are staying at the Double Rockin' R campground. It is a seven acre campground and livery located on the banks of the Guadalupe at Loop 337 or State Highway 46. Offering only primitive camping in a family atmosphere, the Double Rockin R has become our favorite.
Whether you know it or not, the Guadalupe River flooded 3 times in the last 10 years well beyond its banks. I have been assured the river is safe and free of debris. For those of you who are familiar with the river, there are no houses left lining the banks. All river businesses were washed away as well. To our benefit will be all new facilities, including bathrooms.
We arrive Friday, May 26th sometime after 5:00 pm. I don't care what time I leave Fort Worth, I never make it before 5. Punch the map button at the bottom to see a map of the area.
Well, figure on spending about $150 to $200 per person. Let's face it, this is a vacation weekend. It is $250 for the campsite for the weekend, this is taken care of by me, your host. Attendees are expected to pick up the cost of food and drink. Raft rentals are $30 per person, per day. I usually cook supper and breakfast, I let someone else make the sandwiches for lunch. This is a cheap weekend vacation if you consider that most of us never take a darn vacation all year round. Live a little. Oh yea, it always helps to have bond money for the occasional mishap.
Coming for Dallas/Fort Worth, go south on I-35 to New Braunfels. It will be a good 230 miles or so. You will go through Austin and San Marcus, if you see the city limits of San Antonio, you've gone too far. Take the Seguin Exit and go west on Loop 337 (aka Highway 46), that's turn right for all you compass impaired folks. You will drive about 5 miles and then come to the Double Rockin' R. It is the first campground on the right. If you cross the river you have gone too far. There used to be a beer barn and a railroad boxcar on the left just before you come to the camp, they may have been washed away. Turn right and then an immediate left to enter the camp. The site is reserved under Tommy Adams and should be site #24.
