Camp Balcones Springs is a “secret”, small paradise nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, just 40 miles northwest of Austin and 90 miles from San Antonio.

The centerpiece of Camp Balcones Springs is Lake Ted, a private ten-acre spring-fed lake that is filled with cool, clear water. Nestled in a canyon high above Lake Travis, Lake Ted is perfect for swimming, blobbing, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and is fully equipped with inflatables, a water trampoline, water slides, and Balcones Beach!

Our facilities were designed by distinguished architects, Susman, Gayle and Tisdale, and Rebecca Devine, of Devine Austin, to compliment the beautiful surrounding scenery, enhance the properties of nature – space, light, and texture. We have over 44 air-conditioned cabins, each with their own private bathroom.
