Tent Camping under the Oak Trees
Covered Futon Couches. We have four Futon Couches in the Alcove Sitting Area. They are available for sleeping in a pinch if you find yourself without a tent or cabin reservations. Mosquito netting may be available. Just ask!
OutHouse & Shower Our mesquite Cordwood OutHouse has a ‘composting’ flushing toilet – organic materials ONLY means only stuff that comes out of YOU. Dispose all paper products in trash. Rinse toilet bowl with water from hose. Please Close the toilet lid. Texas is still in a major drought. Please help our trees grow. If You Gotta Pee – Find a Tree!
The OutHouse has a shower stall for those who bring solar shower bags. Cold Alcove Well Water is accessible at the OutHouse. The Solar Shower is in the process of being renovated to be put back into service soon to eliminate the need to bring solar bags unless used at individual campsites. Please bring sulfate free shampoo and body wash.
A semi-private area has been set aside for cooling down in our Alcove Tub with a view of both Lillie’s Pond and the Willow Pond. It’s a very refreshing spot to relax during the evening hours as well…. perhaps with a few candles and serenaded by the singers of the land – frogs and cicadas.
