Cockrell River Camp is located on the south end of El Rancho Cima just 2 miles from the main gate. The breath taking views are endless as you make your way down towards your campsite on the Blanco River. Each campsite has its own spectacular view of the river. The Blanco River provides unique swimming, canoeing, rowing, kayaking, and even tubing. On a hot summer's day, relief is just steps away as you submerge yourself in the 68 degree year round Blanco River.
