More about camping


Texas Viking Festival offers primitive camping. This means, no running water, no power, and no bathrooms. (We do provide port-a-potty facilities) You have to remove all your trash when you leave. (Please keep in mind this is a wildlife preserve, leaving trash could make our animal friends sick or kill them.)

Campers can arrive on Friday and leave on Monday for the $15.00 / night price.

Wrist bands must be worn by all persons in the camping area. If you do not have a wrist band you will be asked to either pay $15.00 for another band or asked to leave the property.

All those camping with us understand you are taking part in camping under Texas laws there is no liability by the landowner or the event venue. Additionally, there will be equestrian events happening in parallel with the event, and those too are covered under Texas lability laws. All appropriate warning signs are at the entrance to the property.

Please secure all your belongings. This means those in your vehicle and those in your camp. We are not libel for items lost or stolen. (But we will help you look for them.)

Camp Fires

All campfires must be contained in a raised fire containment system and may not be left unattended. All fires must be covered with a screen to prevent embers from blowing out of the fire. All campfires are conditional based upon the current burn ban status of Bastrop County. E.g., if there is a burn ban in effect, there will be no campfires allowed. Everyone having a campfire must have a fire extinguisher in plain view and within easy reach of those by the fire. If you are asked to put a fire out you will only be given one chance to do so. If it has to be repeated you will be removed from the property.

Of Recreational Vehicles and Generators

We offer limited partial RV hookups. (That being power and water.) We do not have pump-out services. These can be booked in advance for 30 Amp and 50 Amp hookups.

We do allow RVs to Boondock (camping with an RV without water and power connections). We have a hose bib available for those entering the property to fill their water tanks. If you are running a generator while boondocking, then we ask that the generator be an inverter-type generator if you wish to operate it after 10pm. If it is not, and you do not have a medical reason to keep the generator running, you will be asked to turn it off so you do not bother the other campers. This generator rule applies to those camping in tents as well.


The venue does have two cabins for rent, but they do go quickly. Book them well in advance if you wish to have them during the Viking Festival. You can book wither the Ranger's Cabin which has a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, living room, kitchen, full bathroom and sleeps four. Or you can book The Love Shack which is a single bedroom with queen-sized bed with attached full bathroom and private deck area.
