​​​​​​A rough outline of the park boundaries WIMBERLEY – The Nature Conservatory (TNC) and Hays County are turning 536 acres of El Rancho Cima, a former Boy Scout camp, into a public park and watering hole.

The land, which is 20 miles west of San Marcos along the Blanco River, will be turned into a large park with a mile of waterfront.

With the population of Austin expected to double by 2040, TNC's associate director of land protections says "it's critical we protect some of the environment and provide places for the public to recreate."

Rio Blanco LLC sold the 2,382-acre camp. Ranch Investments & Associates was the broker.
