Best Place to Camp

Pace Bend

Sometimes camping means one night in the wilderness, sleeping in a car with a trunk full of Lone Star. Sometimes, it's a week of truly roughing it, making all your own food, living on a bed pad with leaves for toilet paper. At Pace Bend, you can do either. Located just 30 miles from Austin, it's a quick jaunt to the 9 miles of scenic and peaceful shoreline; Lake Travis encompassed by green that makes us all beam Texas pride. Hiking, climbing, biking, horseback riding, swimming, sailing, and whiskey-drinking. Camping is what you make of it, and Pace Bend's got your back. Pack.
