2 Hill Country spots park on new list of America’s Best Campgrounds


Two locations in the Hill Country have earned top spots in a new ranking of the nation’s best campgrounds.

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort: Guadalupe River in Kerrville wins three accolades in Campspot’s first-ever rewards program, and Camp Fimfo Hill Country near New Braunfels wins two accolades. Outdoor industry panelists chose the winners. Campspot is a platform for booking campsites.

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort: Guadalupe River won three awards:

  • Ninth best campground.
  • Second best campsite for families.
  • Third best campsites (Riverfront Red Carpet RV sites).

Campspot describes Kerrville Campground as “the perfect place for families looking for a vacation to remember. Whether you’re looking to relax and spend the day with fun activities, this [campground] is an ideal location.”

Campground facilities include the Yogi Bear Water Zone and an 18-hole mini-golf course.

Highlights of the Riverfront Red Carpet RV sites include electrical, water, and sewer hookups at every concrete slab, as well as cable TV hookup, picnic table, ring fire pit and a charcoal grill.

The other regional winner is Camp Fimfo Texas Hill Country, which is east of Canyon Lake and north of New Braunfels. It ranks third in best campgrounds for families and second in campground design. Camp Fimfo features include a swim-up bar, water slides, and outdoor movies.

“Step out of the ordinary and… generally outdoors with a glamping or camping experience at Camp Fimfo,” says Campspot.

Camp Fimfo offers three types of RV sites and three types of cabins. At an average of $275 a night, the Three-Bedroom Cabin is the most expensive option. It can accommodate 12 people and includes a full kitchen and a private bathroom.
