Camp Wood Chronicles

Lindbergh by Mike Cox

Had it played out differently, what happened in Real County in 1924 could have changed aviation history... To give Camp Wood another tourist attraction, the chamber attached a large model airplane to the front of their building in such a way that it looked like it had crashed into the structure. Eventually, the small plane ended up in the local museum, which also has the wooden propeller Lindbergh and Klink left behind. more

Scenic Drive:

Hwy 337 is regarded as one of the best scenic drives in Texas, certainly one of the best in the Hill Country. A loop originating in Camp Wood is recommended by the Texas State Travel Guide: Go northwest on 55 to Barksdale and then North on 335. Go east when you intersect with Hwy 41 and continue until you reach 336. Turn south to go the 27 miles to Leakey. This will put you back on 337 to return to Camp Wood.
