We are currently parked near Bandera, TX, also known as the Cowboy Capital of the World. We visited the Flying L Guest Ranch for the day which was loads of fun. This is a ranch that has beautiful accomodations for guests to stay overnight, but no RV sites unfortunately. For any of our RV’ing friends, if you’re ever in the area we would highly recommend visiting for the day. They have a variety of activities to do like golf, horse-back riding, mini golf, a playground and our favorite — a water park. We spent most of the day at the Lone Star Lagoon water park which had a few small water slides and a splash park:
a wave pool and lazy river:
and this tree walking thing:
After the water park closed we enjoyed some putt putt:
Later we studied these pictures of wanted criminals just in case we happen to spot these outlaws and can earn a reward:
And we met a real live cowboy. I asked him if they have ever considered adding RV sites to the ranch, and he seemed to think it might be a good idea to do that at some point.
The really nice cowboy invited us to come back that evening for s’mores around the campfire and to hear some cowboys singing, but as you can see in the next picture we were all pretty wiped out after that fun and sun filled day and didn’t make it back that evening.
For anyone planning to visit for the day, they offer half-priced Mondays and $10 Tuesdays. Children under 3 are free. They also have a bar and grill at the water park, but you are not allowed to bring in your own food and drinks.
We had a great time at this place and would definitely go back next time we’re in the area. Everything was very clean and well-maintained, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I really hope that someday they’ll have RV sites and we can stay right on property.
