- The Kerrville area offers much for those interested in the history of the Hill Country and the several cultures which took part in its development. A notable attraction is Camp Verde, on Verde Creek. It was a base for the US Army's experiment using camels for transportation in the desert southwest. It was active from 1855 to 1869 and had about 75 camels stationed there. Also, Bandera Pass, 12 miles south of Kerrville, is a noted gap in the chain of mountainsthrough which passed camel caravans, wagon trains, Spanish conquistadors, immigrant trains, and US troops. The park can be reached by traveling 3 miles southeast of Kerrville on State Highway 16 to State Highway 173 for 3 miles. The park headquarters building is on the left.
