Playground and swimming pool

General

  • Family-friendly site on the banks of the Medina river in Bandera
  • 45 minutes' drive from San Antonio
  • Fishing, centrally located outdoor pool, hot tub and playground

Yeeha... pull on your boots and whack on a hat, for you’re about to enter cowboy country. And not just any old cowboy country – the town of Bandera, where the Pioneer River Resort is located, calls itself ‘the Cowboy Capital of the World’.

Those pioneers knew a thing or two about picking a spot to settle – the resort is right on the banks of the Medina river and surrounded by trees for a scenic country vibe. Facilities have moved on since the days of the Wild West though, so roll your RV into the park and hook your trusty steed up to a whole range of useful services including electricity, sewerage and cable TV.

Bring your fishing kit along to see what you can hook in the river; you’ll often find fellow guests having a bit of a fish fry of an evening so follow your nose if you need a few tips on catching and cooking. For dips, head over to the outdoor pool or have a bubble in the hot tub while the kids are at the adjacent playground; after that, gather all together for a family game of shuffleboard.

Several restaurants are a few minutes’ walk away, along with some good old country-style bars with music and dancing.

Local attractions

Make like a cowboy and saddle up for a ride out in the private ranches and state parks around Bandera: there are several riding stables in town and a short drive away, catering for all levels from beginner to experienced riders. If you’d rather see the professionals in action, a rodeo that takes place a couple of times a week in summer.

Another good way to see the country is by river – take the five-minute drive to the other side of town to hire kayaks and spend the day paddling on the Medina. Meanwhile, hikers and cyclists will find plenty of trails to explore over at Hill Country State Natural Area, 20 minutes’ drive away.

Several museums nearby are worth a look: start at the Frontier Times Museum a 10-minute walk away to see an eccentric collection open to the public for more than 80 years, telling the history of ranching and cowboys in the area. A 10-minute drive out of town is the Town Mountain Miniatures Museum, where vintage toys sit alongside tiny scenes of cowboy life.

Family-friendly attractions are in San Antonio a 45-minute drive away, including the Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme park and Sea World.
