Friendsgiving at Mystic Quarry
Join us on this Thanksgiving at Mystic Quarry! Instead of spending the day frazzled with cooking & dishes, relax with us. We will be hosting an outdoor, socially distanced potluck and will provide deep fried turkey and honey baked ham. Feel free to bring your own side dishes and desert.
Enjoy the 'propane' campfire, the games and spending time with your loved ones. Mystic Quarry might become your favorite new holiday tradition!
Enjoying the new Pavilion during our Friendsgiving in 2018. This year will be different with COVID-19 but will do our best to bring back normalcy.
Welcome Winter Texans!
Are you ready escape the snow this winter & find peace in the Texas Hill Country? Look no further than Mystic Quarry! We still have options for this season but filling up fast. Come rent a fully furnished tiny house or cabin and have everything you need for your home-away-from-home. Or perhaps you would like to bring down your RV to spend the winter with us.
Our park is known for its awesome group of “Winter Texans”. Our winter guests hit the town to explore surrounding towns like Gruene, Wimberly, and New Braunfels. On-site they enjoy morning coffee, happy hour, cards, gardening, and a whole lot more! Check out our site for more information about becoming a Winter Texan! This year will surely be unique; however, this crew will definitely figure out how to have some fun with safety built-in!
Meet Kevin and Cheryl Johnson, our awesome Winter Texan coordinators. If you are looking to be active & have some fun, MQ is the place to be. Cheryl will have a full calendar for the year - check out last year's events!
Fall Music Under the Stars

Such a beautiful night to enjoy the sunset and some tunes! Here we are listening to Kinky Wires featuring Myles Smith.
What's New at MQ ...
Our team has been hard at work completing our newest glamping option: Safari Tents!
These canvas tents will be the new MQ favorite. Complete with a private bedroom, private 3 piece bathroom, mini-fridge, coffee maker, living room area, AC/heat, and large porches perfect for sipping your morning brew. These are located in the back of our park in the tent camping area, making the perfect place for a back to nature (but with the amenities) getaway. Take a look at these progress pictures and stay tuned for the official grand opening!
The inside of our new Camp Comfort and Camp Verde has a vent-free propane fire pit for those cold winter nights and a queen/twin bunk bed combo so you can have your kiddos experience glamping at its finest. We can even add a cot for 4 if you so desire. Book Camp Verde or Camp Comfort today!
Hill Country Happenings
Here are some ideas for things to do in the area while you stay with us at MQ!
- See a show at Gruene Hall! You can now book an entire table (in or outside) to enjoy live music.
- Experience a blast from the past and enjoy a movie from the comfort of your car! Check out Stars & Stripes, a drive-in movie theater!
- Explore the Natural Bridge Caverns! This massive limestone cavern is one of the largest in Texas and a fun way to learn about ancient Hill Country geology.
- Check-out a local farmer’s market! Saturdays at New Braunfels or Wednesdays in Wimberley.
- Try horseback riding here in Canyon Lake with Sunnye’s Stables or Southern Trail Rides!

A Note from Jim & Courtney
Fall is a great time to get outdoors. Besides the cooler weather, there are also fewer crowds and a more relaxing pace. There are not many activities that bring you more peace than taking a walk down a hiking trail or biking down a tree-lined path in the fresh air. Finishing up the day with your favorite beverage while sitting around a campfire is the ultimate way to complete your autumn day.
Mystic Quarry was based on an idea that we could create a place to recharge and relax not too far from home but far away from daily stress. Here at Mystic Quarry, we work hard to make an awesome get-away for everyone.
Recently, we took our own advice and took some time to get away from our “workplace”. Our vacation involved renting an RV from our partners at Outdoorsy and camping our way from Texas to Wyoming and back. We even brought our dogs with us which forced us to explore deeper to find dog-friendly hiking spots and attractions. We are glad to be able to offer the same for our guests since dogs are family to many. The weather was fantastic as were all the campgrounds we visited. We saw plenty of beautiful places and spent time slowing down. Exhale…
The days away were just what we needed. We have come back refreshed and with plenty of cool ideas to add to Mystic Quarry, like new outdoor games, a stylish bathhouse made from a shipping container and large inground fire pits – 2021 project list is beginning to take shape.
We are feeling energized to make our new safari tent accommodations the best around. Don’t be surprised if you see busy staff members setting up the Halloween Haunted Forest and moving furniture into the safari tents in between taking care of our guests and keeping the resort looking great.
Finding time to focus on relaxation is a gift we are happy we finally gave to ourselves. Now we are excited to be your happy place.
PS: Shout out to our staff (Kelsey, Thomas, Paul, Raven, Stephen, Emily, Brett, Kassidy and Tracey) for allowing us to get away!! You are the best.
