Intro

Camp Eagle is a private Christian camp with a focus on outdoor sports recreation. It's located on a beautiful plot of land in the Texas Hill Country at the headwaters of the Nueces River. The beautiful and rugged terrain of the area is sure to attract campers and outdoor enthusiasts of all types and skill levels.

What Makes It Great

The camp offers several trails to run and hike and even more rock climbing routes. It also has a high ropes course for groups to take team building courses to strengthen bonds and develop teamwork skills. The public does have access to rock climbing here at certain times, but there are certain rules and guidelines that must be followed. All climbers must stop and sign in at the office, sign waivers, and pay a day use fee. Specifics to these climbing rules and a climbing guide to the Camp can be found here on the Camp Eagle Climbing Guide or in the link to the right. 

The rock climbing here is all on pocketed limestone typical of Central Texas and consists of bouldering, top-roping, and sport climbing. There are a number of fun routes on pretty fresh rock, for the most part, as climbing didn't really get going here until 2006. The climbing is split into the North Half and the South Half sections. The South Half contains the main cliff and the majority of the roped routes, while the North Half is made up of mostly scattered boulders. Take a group or set up an event for climbing, hiking, trail running, or mountain biking at the fun and inspirational Camp Eagle in the Texas Hill Country!

Who is Going to Love It

There's a good variety of climbing at Eagle Camp, most of it geared towards casual climbers. There's good spots to put up top-ropes and moderate sport leads on bolts, mostly all single pitch. Besides the climbing, there's hiking, running, and mountain biking available for multi-sport athletes.
