Texas Vacation Spotlight: Mo-Ranch

Wednesday, March 11, 2015
It's time to start planning your summer vacations! I'd love to help you find the perfect place for you and your family. Today, I'm featuring one of my favorite vacations spots, Mo-Ranch. Mo-Ranch is Presbyterian conference center and summer camp located in Hunt, 20 minutes outside of Kerrville. Mo-Ranch is also a place for family reunions, getaway vacations, weddings, team building retreats and more. I have camped at Mo-Ranch since a young child, and I have the fondest memories of my time there. I have also stayed in many of their different lodges when I was there for church camp.

For a low cost vacation, you can stay at their campsites, which are enclosed by screens to keep the bugs out, on top of concrete (no a/c). These campsites are only $72 a night! Each campsite has 4 bunkbeds (sleeping 8), and there are covered picnic tables, a grill and running water attached. Clean bathroom/shower facilities are super close.  Fill up the cooler with food, drinks and all the items you would need for cooking. My family would rent one campsite and our good friends would rent another. We would then designate who would cook what for the meals a few weeks prior, so each family could prepare. We would have tacos for breakfast (or cereal sometimes), sandwiches for lunch, and burgers for dinner. If you don't feel like cooking, you can always head over to the dining hall which offers 3 meals a day, as well as a snackbar.

You can also pitch a tent in the same area for $32 a night. If you're not in to camping or no a/c, check out their other accomodations here, which are still very affordable!

Mo-Ranch is located along the Guadalupe river. This water is crystal clear, and extremely cool and refreshing during the heat of a Texas summer.

As you can see there are a ton of recreational activities. The best part about Mo-Ranch is the serene and quiet location. It's never extremely busy, making it feel like your own little oasis at times. I believe this is one of Texas' hidden gems. You can't beat the price, beautiful scenery, and activities for kids and adults. (This is not a sponsored post, I just love them this much!)

Have you ever been to Mo-Ranch? What's your favorite Texas vacation spot?
