Camp Eagle near Rocksprings, TX
To get to Camp Eagle, ya’ll will be heading about 2 hours west of the Alamo city on asphalt, and about half an hour south on a dirt road. The address is 6424 Hackberry Rd., Rocksprings, TX 78880.
Competitor magazine declared Camp Eagle “Texas’ best adventure destination.” It’s no surprise with 1400 acres of rugged Hill Country along with natural caves, a quarter mile of 150′ limestone cliffs, and 1.5 miles of the crystal clear Nueces River. That’s more natural resources jammed into one space than most camps across the nation can claim. It is known for their mountain biking trails!

Lodging options for 2 nights:
- Tent- $20 per tent (Bathhouse is nearby)

This sleeps 14 in bunks, but if we do not have 12 paying adults ($120 x 2 nights), we cannot use a yurt. We can do males and females in two separate dorms, or you can share it with others you know (to equal 12).

FREE/0-2 yr olds and non participants
Headwaters Barn – 2-3 hours
Designed for young children to early middle school, it’s a paradise for play that provides thrills in a more manageable setting. Complete with a barn swing, a rock wall, crate stacking, and a high catwalk kids can safely climb up and get lowered back down on a cable or on a spiral tube slide!
Zipline 850 – 2-3 hours
Here’s your opportunity to soar down our flagship dual 850-foot zip lines at up to 30 mph! Our most accessible zip line, it’s a great activity for all ages. This activity is a solid night option as well.
Free Activities available anytime
Kayaking (Must wear life vest provided, all those under 18 must be supervised by an adult.)
Mountain biking (Trails are everywhere! Maps provided. Helmets are a MUST!)
Sand Volleyball (Court is lit)
Miscellaneous bits of info:
· Wifi is available in the office foyer and the coffee house. If you climb a mountain, you may be able to get a signal there? Please be aware, the cell phone signal is VERY sketchy and not reliable. If you need to get in contact with those on site, you may want to bring walkie talkies.
· Mountain bikes welcome! Helmets are REQUIRED and MUST be worn at all times.
· Bouldering on the side of the building is only if there is staff supervision.
· No ground fires allowed. You may bring a portable grill.
· There is not a minimum age for the Zip line, they just need to be able to fit into our smallest harness. From my experience, a 4 or 5 yr old may fit in the harness.
· Make sure you bring everything you need, the closest grocery store or any store is 1 ½ hours away.
