Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is 12 miles northwest, where you can hike, set out a picnic, stargaze, or go birding or rock climbing.

This place was such a surprise! I will be back for sure. The individual restroom/shower/changing room for each camper unit was wonderful!
Rebecca M. Feb 2021
The resort was so much fun to stay at! Very quiet and peaceful. Can't wait to book my next stay!
Paige M. Dec 2020
We loved the location, atmosphere and vibe. Secured with codes, really private! However the shower/bathroom situation, cold shower in the winter time.
Manager response:

We sincerely appreciate your feedback, and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can ensure these concerns do not happen to future guests.

Our trailer, Miss Estelle, was so cozy and warm even though outside was cold and very windy. We were still able to watch the amazing meteor shower remaining warm, comfy, & cozy from the bed in the trailer. SO MANY STARS!!! The bathroom our trailer matched was hotel style wonderful and warm as well. I will definitely stay here again. It was such a great way to escape the city in a safe way.

Our first trip and had perfect weather and clear skies. Can’t recommend enough. The trailers are small but comfy. The bathrooms are awesome and the views go on forever! We will be back!
Ruth C. Aug 2020
We really enjoyed our stay! It was so calm and peaceful. The views were amazing including the stars at night! It had all the necessary amenities including our suite bathroom.
Rick S. Aug 2020
Loved the setting and the trailer. Truly something awesome. However it would have been even better if management responded to issues. 1) A huge light from the main facility building was left on all night for multiple nights in a row. This diminished our ability to star gaze. Management was contacted and had done nothing 24 hours later. That was a huge bummer.

Great bones, management needs some help though.
Manager response:
Hello Rick, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize; however, we have to leave the light on for other guests who might want to use the public showering and restroom areas. We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope we can host you again in the future.

We loved everything about this spot, from the adorable campers, well-kept property, pool, luxurious bathrooms, and the view to the proximity to Fredericksburg and ease of getting around. Next time we'll bring a small folding table for the little "yard" so we can eat outside comfortably (or just a picnic blanket). Book it, you'll love it. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful surroundings. Quite and peaceful. Camper was adorable. Clean and comfortable. Bath house was awesome. One of my new favorite places to stay.
Shannon M. Jul 2020
Super cute, super clean and super fun. Very quiet and beautiful setting. The private bathrooms were huge and have all you need- outdoor shower was a neat feature. Trailers are spaced far enough apart that you don't feel intrusive or invaded. The one thing I'd love to see is a shady place to sit (maybe standing umbrella or bigger covered area in front of the trailer doors) so you can enjoy the afternoon/sunsets without getting roasted. Y'all did a great job- we have recommended to our friends and plan to be back again.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Shannon. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The whole setup at Blue Skies is perfect! Enjoyed a 4-night stay with our 3-generation group - two in Miss Estella and two in Miss Abby. The bathhouse is AMAZING! We kept our clothes and toiletries in the individual bathhouses which gave us plenty of room. The outdoor showers are INCREDIBLE!
Alyssa D. May 2020
I drove by these campers in mid March and instantly booked one for my fiance's birthday this weekend. It was so cute and perfect. I've told everyone about them, and would definitely stay again. It was a clear weekend and we were able to see all of the stars at night. A very peaceful, relaxing, beautiful weekend.
Krystal A. May 2020
I cannot put into words how pleased we were with our accommodations! Easy access, very clean, and all the modern amenities with a retro feel. This is a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle and drink a glass of wine while looking up at the stars. Perhaps one of the best stays we’ve ever experienced. Thanks for everything!
Shelby S. Mar 2020
My husband and I booked the Miss Estella trailer for this birthday weekend and we absolutely loved it! This retro resort is perfect for warm or cool weather with the pool/lounging area and the private lawn, outdoor shower, and firepits. We would definitely stay here again! Possibly this summer so we can enjoy the pool! Booking Blue Skies Retro Resort with Vacasa was quick and easy! It made arrival and departure keyless! The estimate we received from Vacasa was also less expensive than the estimate we received from Airbnb.

Everything!

This resort is something to experience! The trailers are spotless and have everything you could need. Now, let’s talk about the individual bathrooms...hello Palm Springs! Heated space, robes, spa level amenities, outdoor shower...are we in Texas?! The owners are extremely accommodating. They helped us pull off a surprise wedding. Do yourself a favor and visit this resort.
