When using google maps or other regular gps driving apps, be careful it doesn’t bring you in the back way. You can get in that way, but it’s a bit more effort. You want to go south onto Hackberry Road from Hwy 41.
Camp Eagle has over 800 beds on property. All within seconds to minutes from the start/finish line, dining facilities, and activities.

Camping is abundant and it’s first come, first serve. Pay once onsite for that.
RV’s are allowed, but are generator only. Camp Eagle will point you in the right direction when you get there.
We will stay on the same schedule as planned. Late starts will be allowed, but no time adjustment will be made.
We will be utilizing single track and some jeep roads. Everything is rocky and technical. Just like the original Bandera home. You’re gonna have an awesome adventure! The vistas are fantastic. There is water everywhere. The challenge is real. Just know as a general rule of thumb you’re almost always going up or down. Longest climb or descent is 200-300 feet at once. Although you will find yourself fluctuating between 1800 and 2400 feet of above sea level the whole time.
Here’s an image of the Race Course.
Here’s the Aid Station Chart.
(The Course & A.S. Chart will be coming soon)
Camp Eagle and Hey Diddle Diddle will have food available throughout the weekend. The rooms do not have microwaves or fridges. But there will be plenty of potable water (all spigots in the rooms and around the camp property is good potable water). Camp Eagle will also have ice for sale all weekend. So if you have an ice chest and portable / camping cooking gear you’ll be set to make your own food. Otherwise, there will be food for sale from pretty early in the mornings until later at night.
Rocksprings is a very small town but does have a grocery store, gas stations, and a couple restaurants that actually serve pretty good food. That is about 35 minutes drive.
Kerrville is a good size city that has everything you would need.
San Antonio is one of the largest cities in Texas and is 2 hours away.
This rain-out backup plan just got you a much easier life spectators and crew! The aid stations are way easier to get to compared to HCSNA. You still do have to hike or bike to them, no vehicle access. But the majority of them are a short pleasant hike from the start/finish line (Pavilion). And you can stay in a building for some of the aid stations if the weather is inclement. See the Aid Station Chart for specific details. Once onsite you will see some signs on stakes that read “XYZ Aid Station This Way”. You should be able to follow each of those in the general path to each aid station. We will try our best to have these out before the pre race briefing…but no promises.
Everything you need to access around the main camp property will also have signage directing you. Camp Eagle will have those out as quickly as they can get to it also.
Camp Eagle is known as Texas premier adventure destinations; and is one of the most respected adventure summer camps in the nation. The river, kayaking, bouldering, sports courts, cliff for sport/lead climbing, and other things are free of charge if you have your own gear. The climbing is all limestone and there’s a good amount of it available along the near side of the property where we will be, so that’s awesome!
Other adventure activities will also be available for signup and may have add’l costs involved. It all depends on how much staff Camp Eagle can wrangle back to the property before we get there. They have a 75 foot free super swing, a 3000 foot zipline (9th longest in the world), rappelling, and a bunch of other stuff. You can ask them once onsite if anything is available.
We will also have some backyard games setup on the slab next to the Pavilion.
