DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas — A 10-acre RV park could be coming to Dripping Springs, right around the corner from Hamilton Pool.

RV park would be on 401 Stagecoach Ranch RoadIt would include 84 lotsPermit applications have been submitted

Developers said they are building a resort in hopes of bringing more visitors out to the Hill Country, but there is some pushback from the community. The small company, BenTree Builders, has submitted permit applications to Travis County and the Lower Colorado River Authority to construct an RV park on 401 Stagecoach Ranch Road, which is less than a mile away from the entrance to Hamilton Pool.

Kristy Petree, one of BenTree Builders’s owners, said she loves nature and called this project a dream in the making.“It’s not going to be an eyesore. It’s going to be beautiful. We’re going to build it and be extremely proud of it,” Petree said over the phone.
