The Box Recreation Area
18.2 Miles from the Buckhorn Tavern is The Box. It is a popular site for camping, hiking, and rock climbing.
I added it to my why not list of things to do around San Antonio. Morgen wanted to go rock climbing but Mama was not sure about it. If you love to rock climb, download the Box Canyon: Enchantment Tower’s Socorro Climbing Area Guide for more detailed information on where to climb at the Box.
I think these would be a great place to camp, however, its open range for a ranch...so cows are wandering around. I think that could get interesting.
Box Canyon is located approximately five miles west of Socorro off US 60. It was really easy to find and walk around. More Info / Website
