The Chapel is a 2,160 sf dormitory style alcohol free getaway for large or small families located in a campground along the banks of the river. Perfect for reunions!
Air mattresses, cots, and bedding provided for up to 16 people. Ask us about bringing RV's.
Also available for weddings & meetings.
Bedding for 16 inside the air-conditioned chapel provided: one queen bed, one full-sized futon, one full bed, and 10 twin beds.
Additional guests who do not require bedding do not need to be included in the total number of guests when making the reservation for up to 20 people. If your group is larger than 20 people, an additional cost of $10/person/night for additional people will be added.
Restrooms (2) are located in a building outside of the chapel (see picture). Showers (4) and additional bathrooms (4) are located in the campground down the hill near the river.
There is a fire ring with a grill along with picnic tables in the yard outside of the chapel. There will be wood provided.
We can also accommodate 4 RV's for an additional fee with water and electrical hookups adjacent to the chapel.
Except for toasting during weddings, we are an alcohol free campground.
Guests have access to the riverfront campground which is conveniently located down the hill from the chapel. There are picnic tables throughout the campground (the campground is alcohol free). The fishing is great. Hanging out by the river in the morning is highly suggested as the river gets crowded in the late afternoon from tubers.

We will meet initially with the group to provide an orientation. Then we are available if something comes up.
Always ask before floating the river. You need to know where you are going, how long the trip takes, how you are getting back and whether there are hazards.
Our aim is to keep things as family friendly on the property as possible.
- Dogs on leashes are allowed (there is no fenced yard).
- Smoking outdoors is permitted. No smoking allowed indoors.
- We have a 10pm quiet time and a midnight curfew (no noise heard outside of the chapel). We live here too.
-We are alcohol free.
We are a Mom and Pop campground who have been in operation here at the San Marcos River Retreat for 25 years with a passion for conservation and preserving the beauty in nature for the next generation. We started our love for the San Marcos River back in the '70s when we discovered it through the Texas Water Safari. From there to here has been quite an adventure of leading river trips all over North America, being a canoe and kayak distributor, competing in decades of Water Safari's, and finally settling into life running a campground for boy scouts, youth groups, and church groups.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us and have a chance to share our love for the rivers in Texas and beyond.
