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.

Opened in 2009, "J.C. Walter Family Shooting Sports Complex" is a state of the art facility, located just below the dining hall. A new rifle range, shotgun range and archery range will provide any novice shooter a chance to learn and become an expert marksman and gives experienced shooters a new challenge.
