New Boutique RV Resort Opens in Downtown New Braunfels with 1960s Vibe

The family behind the Schlitterbahn waterpark unveiled Camp Landa, a boutique RV resort located in the heart of New Braunfels, Texas. This 30-acre property, with a nostalgic 1960s vibe, officially opened to the public on May 24.

Set against the backdrop of the Comal River, Camp Landa is the result of a collaboration between several New Braunfels-based companies. Open Studio Architecture led the architectural design, CoPilot Creative handled the creative design, and True Design was responsible for the interiors. The construction, managed by Classen-Winters Design Build, showcases their 40 years of experience in the commercial construction industry.

The resort’s retro-inspired design is central to its charm, reflecting the owners’ vision of the “Great American Getaway.” Open Studio Architecture associate Caleb Goins said the firm worked closely with the Blythin family, focusing the design on the adaptive reuse of a building that has been on the property since the 1980s.

“To achieve the desired mid-century aesthetic, the building was transformed into the central activity hub of the camp through the use of retro construction materials with a modern twist. These decorative motifs were then carried over to the sprawling pool complex and the cabins that line the creek bluff,” Goins said in a press release.

Camp Landa was a manufacturing site for Schlitterbahn water. Now, the land has been reconstructed to create an upscale camping getaway, featuring amenities such as a heated pool, Wi-Fi, a camp store, on-site laundry, and a fire pit where guests can purchase s’mores kits.

For sports enthusiasts, the resort offers pickleball courts, basketball, and cornhole boards. Additional offerings include food and beverage options at the swim-up bar, specialty cocktails like Camp Landa Agua Fresca and Blackberry Jalapeño Margarita, and a café menu with items like Rueben Egg Rolls and The Hurta Loaded Bavarian Pretzel topped with sauerkraut and Rust Meat Market old-world bratwurst.

Another feature of Camp Landa is a variety of activities for children. The resort provides a rotating programming schedule, a jump pad, a crafting station, and a playground. Families can choose from 110-level RV sites, each equipped with fast and easy hook-up options, picnic tables, and grills. For those traveling without an RV, the resort offers five cabins that can accommodate up to eight guests, complete with fully-stocked kitchens, outdoor dining areas, and personal grills.

Stuart Blythin, one of the founders, expressed excitement about the new venture. He said his family is ecstatic to welcome the community and roadtrippers to their destination RV resort in New Braunfels.

“I promise you, Camp Landa is luxury camping made simple. We’ve thought of it all so that guests and families can just show up and enjoy an elevated camping experience curated by our team of experts,” Blythin said.

The inspiration for Camp Landa came from Stuart and Tasha Blythin’s travels across the country with their four children during the pandemic. Their experiences fostered a shared enthusiasm for exploration and the fellowship found at campgrounds and RV parks.

Furthermore, Tasha Blythin’s deep roots in Texas and her family’s history with Schlitterbahn influenced the creation of Camp Landa. As a sixth-generation Texan, Tasha’s ties to the waterpark where she met Stuart in 2004 are deeply embedded in the resort’s essence. The original Camp Landa, purchased by Tasha’s grandparents in 1966, eventually evolved into Schlitterbahn, embedding New Braunfels’ German heritage into the resort’s identity.

Convenient transportation and concierge services further enrich the guest experience. A dedicated shuttle transports guests to and from Landa Falls, the longest float on the Comal River, while a text concierge service offers insider tips for exploring New Braunfels. Additionally, the café and amenities are open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and until 9:00 p.m. during the summer months.
