Lazy L & L Campground
River Road- New Braunfels, Texas
This campground has it all! Camping spots, full hook up RV spots, etc. They also have a general store, food truck, and a pavilion with a bar and live music.
The number one thing to do here is TUBE!! This was the whole purpose of this trip and it couldn’t have been better. With this campground you can rent tubes, cooler tubes, or a river radio. When you pay for the tube, it includes a ride back from the other side of the river. Pretty standard practice. I brought my own tube, but Austin rented one and a cooler. The cooler tube covered my ride back! If you bring your own tube you do have to buy a ride back.
Meal Tips & Tricks
Since we came with a group our meals were luckily covered, but I will share some fun tips!
Grilled Biscuits- That’s right, you can grill biscuits! We used the pop can biscuits, flaky worked best. Just throw on a pan and grease the biscuits and cover. We flipped them so they browned both sides. We smothered with sausage gravy and were ready to float the river!
River Sandwiches- SKIP THE SANDWICH BREAD! After a day floating the river the regular bread gets gummy and does a poor job soaking up the booze you drank that day. I always pack a sandwich on a pretzel roll and luckily my H-E-B has green chili and cheese or bacon and cheese topped pretzel rolls. They hold up really well in the cooler and are super satisfying on the river. We fill with deli meats and cheeses… They also do an excellent job of holding up. I individually bag the sandwiches so everyone gets what they want.
On this trip we stayed at the campground and river, but I’ve been to the part of Texas a few times to know where you need to go!
There are plenty of wineries to hit up if you love wine. The frozen sangria at Dry Comal is amazing and the blueberry wine at Winery on the Gruene.
Gruene is always a good call. They have the oldest dancehall in Texas, cute shops, and good food! The Gristmill is a great stop as well! Real talk, now I am jonesing for a trip to Gruene.
This was such a great trip with wonderful friends. Betty got to meet a lot of new people and we had an awesome time! Thank you so much to Diana D. for setting up this trip… It was the perfect, relaxing trip. You and I your cavalry family rock! Can’t wait to hit the river again next year!
