Pics

Try this link: http://s143.photobucket.com/albums/r...aters%20Ranch/

If you click on the registration link in the original post, it will bring you to the online event flyer that has a few more pics of the terrain and campgrounds.

Both links should give you an idea of what's there and page 4 on the photobucket link will showcase one of the views. You can see Enchanted Rock from the hilltops on this ranch as it's about 19 miles from Fredericksburg. Keep in mind the link has pics from the spring and it was wet and cold. The ranch has trails that range from mild to wild. We'd love to have you down-please let me know what other questions you have.

Thanks!

This is the info we have on the campground:

Oxford Campground 11380 S. SH 16 Llano, TX 78643 (325) 247-1639, Day Rates: $20 RV Full Hookup / $18 Electric Only / $12 Tent / $5 each if more than 2 adults per site

I always to suggest to double check, but there should be. It's a clean and safe campground fwiw.

The water you see in the photos is a pond that is fed fresh water from the natural springs. I don't think there would be any problem hopping in for a quick cool down!
