Well... – As was pointed out by another reviewer, this isnt a place to go expecting all kinds of hookups. Its for camping, not RVing. None the less, Ive been twice, and find it /very/ nice. The climb is not hard at all, and the scenery is very pretty. You can literally see for miles in every direction. Also, at the top it is suprisingly cool even in the warmest weather due to constant winds that blow. There are also a number of interesting caves, but Id only recommend them if you know what you're doing, or are daring.
Romantic Getaway – I took my wife to this wonderful park on our first date, the pretense was to catch an awesome sunset from the top, we did and because the trip down can be quite dangerous, she HAD to hold my hand all the way down. 6 months later on March 11 1990 we were married atop the the truely "Enchanted Rock".
We have enjoyed day trips as well as overnight campouts at this fantastic park, being preparred is being prudent, sunscreen, and plenty of H20.
Boring Bare Rock – This park is about as dull as you can get. Don't believe the hype... a big round rock in the middle of nowhere is still just a big round rock. You can climb it, but the view is barely worth the effort.
how old? – It's an interesting rock formation, but much older than 11,000 years. Maybe 1.1 million?
Enchanting Day Trip – Enchanted rock is a great place to go for an outdoor activity! The large granite rock is a sight to behold on its own. Climbing it can be quite a chalenge, so bring lots of water. There is a small cave you can explore near the top, which is cool, but can be a bit dangerous ofter rains, so be cautious. I give Enchanted Rock two thumbs up!
DISAGREE WITH GOOD RATING – I disagree with the good rating of one of the Top 10 Camping Spots. I admit it has been a while since I was there as I had no reason to ever return, but it was a hike in place which was totally unacceptable. I was in a 36 foot motorcoach and there were no electric hookups, no water hookups, no sewer, no cable TV (hadn't bought the Dish at that time) and I found it totally unacceptable as a camping spot. The Enchanted Dome turned out to just be a big rock. Right down the road a bit however, at Fredericksburg is a city owned park called Lady Bird Park and it is just great. All the amenities including email access.
Breathe Taking – This is truly a hiking park for hikers. If you want a workout in all areas of your body, then I suggest you drive to this location. Don't forget to bring suntan-lotion. You'll be blown away from the breathe taking views and knocked down from the fearsome climbs.
