The Koyote Ranch is located about 6 miles north of Medina, TX on Hwy 16. To get there pulling a camper or driving a RV, you need to come up Highway 16 from Medina. Highway 16 going south out of Kerriville has several steep and sharp curves and is not recommended for campers. If you are coming from Interstate 10, you'll need to take Highway 16 south to Highway 173 as though going to Bandera. Just south of Camp Verde take FM 2828 to Highway 16 and then north to the campground.
The Koyote Ranch offers 50 nice concrete RV pads with full hook ups at each site, cabin rentals and tent camping sites. There is very little shade at the RV sites which we found to be a problem during the heat of the day. However, they have a very nice swimming pool with shade trees where you can cool off if you get too hot. The cabins are very nice and clean as well as the restrooms and shower areas. One of our daughters and her family stayed in one of the cabins and liked it very much. Other amenities include 3 bath houses, grill, convience store, laundry room, exercise room, picnic tables, handicap facilities, highspeed WiFi, cable TV and private concrete patios.
If you are into motorcycles, this is a good place to come. They are motorcycle friendly and tend to cater to that group. Although I have nothing against motorcycles, the last time we stayed at the campground there were a lot of motorcycle groups staying there which made it a little noisy with the groups going and coming during the day. These days, with the toyhauler campers, a lot of people bring their mototcycles with them.
While staying at the Koyote Ranch, you are an easy drive to Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Lost Maples State Park, Bandera (Cowboy Capital of the World), or San Antonio. Lost Maples has a lot of hiking trails if you like to hike. You can go to Rock Springs and visit The Devils Sink Hole and watch the bats fly at night. In Bandera there are some nice shops and good places to eat. Also, for hiking you can visit The Hill Country State Natural Area about 10 miles west of Bandera.
All in all, this is a good place to stay. We have been there twice and have enjoyed both visits.
