What's New at MQ...
We have started construction on our water feature!
Our nature path is getting a brand-new-yet-like-it's-always-been-here attraction. A beautiful, serene waterfall, which will be the perfect spot to read a book, enjoy a picnic or maybe even get married while enabling social distancing outside?! This new feature will make for the perfect backdrop for your special day. We expect this project to be ready sometime this fall!
Pond Rendition of the waterfall feature: a concrete peninsula with stairs next to the waterfall, a tree retention area for capturing shade while enjoying the sounds and beauty of the moving water. Plus, a new bridge that allows golf carts and foot traffic to go over the wet weather creek.
These pictures showcase the peninsula that will surround the waterfall. The waterfall will drop from the quarry wall into a large aqua block area that houses all the water for the waterfall.
Our new glamping pods are about to go to the top of your bucket list!
Spend a night in a Sioux-style tipi, complete with an indoor fire pit, plush bedding, mini-fridge & coffee station - sorry, no TVs in these beauties. Due to popular request, these tipis will feature bunk beds (queen on the bottom and twin on the top), to provide a cozy option for a family of three! We can even add a cot for 4 if you so desire. Book Camp Verde or Camp Comfort today!
We have a delay of our tipi bunk bed frames coming from Colorado (they will replace the queen bed shown above). We are hoping to have them at Mystic Quarry and installed in our latest G4 and G5 Glamping Pod Tipis before Labor Day.
We are in the process of adding 3 new Safari Tents and planning to complete them this fall. Here is a sneak peek of the construction process.
Glamping Pod #6 (named Bee Cave) is under construction. The week of August 10th, we will begin constructing the other two Glamping Pod frames #7 (Buffalo Gap) and #8 (Eagle Pass). Check out the map to see the location of our Glamping Pods.
Hill Country Happenings
Fun in the sun isn’t canceled! There are plenty of things to do around MQ that allow for social distancing. Cool off in the Guadalupe River! The river is still open for tubing- just need your own transportation & tubes. We recommend going midweek when there are far fewer people out & about.
Hike around & swim in Canyon Lake at Madrone Trail- you’ll have this spot to yourself if you make it in the morning!
Or schedule a Gorge Tour to learn more about this amazing piece of history that was uncovered from heavy rainfall in 2002! The gorge features fossils and dinosaur prints: it is a great time for the entire family! They are requiring reservations, smaller groups and enforcing social distancing so it is a great time to check it out!
Tubing the Guadalupe River
While at the Quarry…
MQ hosts Music Under the Stars most Friday nights of the summer. Grab your lawn chairs and come space out on our courtyard, enjoy some music & yummy food! Our lineup includes (subject to change)
It comes with heavy hearts to announce that we have officially canceled our third annual Pints-n-Pups event in 2020 due to COVID-19 business restrictions and unknowns. We had initially moved it to September in hopes we would be past the current pandemic situation. But, given this summer's 2nd wave and increased restrictions on events with more than 100 people, it is best to cancel this year and put our efforts into making it better than ever for 2021. Mark your calendars for May 8, 2021!

If you have noticed during your visits to Mystic Quarry, we never stop improving and adding to the resort. This is one of our favorite quotes, so we thought we would share it with our Mystic Quarry audience.
