5 Reason To Escape The City and Stay At San Marcos River Resort

Looking for an escape from Houston or San Antonio for a Texas vacation? San Marcos River Resort in Fentress provides a peaceful retreat on the San Marcos River, perfect for river tubing, picnicking, fishing, quality family time, and onsite activities.


  1. River Tubing

Whoever invented river tubing was truly brilliant! Enjoy an exciting float down the beautiful spring-fed San Marcos River with family and friends at San Marcos Campground’s Tube Rental and Hourly Shuttle service, while taking in some delicious refreshments and quality company. Enjoy an ideal Texas afternoon with cool beverages and the company of friends!


2. Lots of onsite activities

We have a full-range of camping resort amenities. We know that staying connected is almost a requirement these days, so we have complimentary Wi-Fi throughout, as well as a playground for the kiddos, sand volleyball and basketball courts, horseshoe pits, and even mini golf! Bring your pets and take advantage of our dedicated pet park, then take a walk on the nature trails. Sport equipment rentals are available on site, as well.


3. Load Up on Supplies

When you have a general store on site, you don’t even have to leave the campground! Don’t want to cook or grill? Then stop by for some Hunt Brothers Pizza and Blue Bell Ice cream for dessert. We’ve also got your firewood, ice-cold beverages, and other essentials you may have forgotten to pack.


4. Quality Time with Family

San Marcos River Resort Campground is the ideal family and pet-friendly getaway, featuring RV sites, cabins and even a treehouse! Situated among ancient pecan groves on the San Marcos River and boasting mature tree shade for shade from midday sun; fish the river for trout; play with your pup at our Dog Park; breathe fresh Texas air – you won’t want to leave this unforgettable camping destination! Whether visiting for just one night or multiple weeks long-term, San Marcos River Resort will become your go-to camping spot thanks to our friendly staff and outstanding amenities!


5. A Cozy Spot to End the Day

Texas sunsets are among the best and the flat terrain allows our guests to fully enjoy a good sunset to round out a perfect day of river tubing and other outdoor activities. Want to stay indoors? Gather in our clubhouse and cozy up near our fireplace, or have a meal with your group underneath our covered deck with picnic tables and a convenient outdoor kitchen. Be sure to check with our staff to make sure it’s available for your use.
