Celebrating Thanksgiving with Friends
At Mystic Quarry, we are all about having fun with friends and family. We also believe camping is a great time to make new friends. What better way to break the ice than a colossal potluck picnic in a beautiful park-like setting? That is exactly how Mystic Quarry does Friendsgiving! It is an annual event on Thanksgiving day and all guest are welcome to join - check out our Facebook Event Page for more information. Get ready for wonderful food, camaraderie and football (yep, we set up a giant flat screen so you won’t miss a single down). The turkey and ham are on us! Just book a spot at Mystic Quarry and show up around 2:00 PM under our pavilion with a dish from the secret family vaults.
Following Friendsgiving on Thursday, Mystic Quarry will feature live music from Robert Cannon Acoustic on Saturday November 30th starting at 5PM. You’re invited to sit by a campfire, sip on your favorite drink and groove to original songs and familiar favorites.
FUN FACT: Merriam Dictionary claims “Friendsgiving” first appeared in written form on Instagram.

Winter Activities in the Hill Country
Whether your visiting for a long weekend or escaping snowy weather for several months, Central Texas offers a special chance to explore your surroundings and find unique adventures. Here at Mystic Quarry, located between Austin and San Antonio, nestled in the oak-filled hills, we call ourselves a basecamp for good reason.

While at the Quarry…
Camping or glamping is a great time for outdoor fun with friends and family. Mystic Quarry offer several fun games here at the resort. In our main courtyard, we have two bocce ball courts, washer and horseshoe pits, frisbee golf and corn hole plus other jumbo sized board games. If you’re not familiar with these games, we have the rules and equipment to check out at the front office. We also have volleyballs and badminton equipment to borrow.
Coming new in January will be a hot tub for our winter guests ... we all cannot wait!
