River Ranch County Park


San Gabriel Oak


This beautiful 1,354 acres of meadowlands, woodlands, hills and escarpments provides hill country vistas between Leander and Liberty Hill and offers park users the opportunity to explore, learn, camp, picnic, hike, bike, ride their horses, nature watch or just relax outside.

The South Fork of the San Gabriel River meanders through the northeastern portion of the park. The river and park can be accessed and enjoyed along 20 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. You are likely to see some of the most elusive wildlife such as porcupine and coyotes, as well as the common whitetail deer. River Ranch is also home to a couple of large and magnificent Live Oak trees, estimated to be over 500 years old.

There are 23 water and electric campsites, 25 walk-in campsites, and 25 primitive sites: with a centralized bath house; a day-use area with a covered pavilion, picnic tables, grills, a children’s play area, and an adult play area with horseshoe and washer pits, and restrooms.  

River Ranch showcases an approximate 4,800 square foot Interpretive Center, where you can learn about the natural, cultural and historic resources that make this park so special. Hands-on interactive exhibits will make learning fun and better prepare you for your journey out into the natural areas of the park.

Group pavilions and classroom/meeting space can also be reserved for those family, church, civic, business and other group type gatherings you may have.
