Land Access/Day Use Fee - $10.00 per person ages 3+ to get onto property, ALL WEEKEND ACCESS.

Backpacking and hiking in Texas may not be well known, but Competitor magazine declared Camp Eagle as "Texas' best adventure destination." With 1400 acres of rugged Hill Country along with natural caves, a quarter mile of 150' tall limestone cliff, and 1.5 miles of the crystal clear Nueces River, Camp Eagle has more natural resources jammed into one space than most camps across the nation.
