HISTORY
Waltonia Lodges has been in operation since 1923, when it was opened as a fishing camp, owned by Dr. William Lee Secor and operated by J.F. Ralston. This section of the river was famed for its excellent Black Bass, Crappie, Catfish and Perch fishing. Cottages / campsites were available then at a cost of $1.00 per day.  

In 1939, Dr. Secor's son and daughter in law, Bill & Mae Secor, became the owner-managers. In the years to come, Waltonia saw much water flow over and under the bridge. A family of three was born and raised here, while valued customers and long-life friends were made. Bill and Mae retired in 1983, after 44 summers.

Thornton Secor & family became owner-managers in summer of 1983. They worked hard to continue the tradition of Waltonia, ensuring the next generation of campers could make memories on the Guadalupe River. We added cabins 15 & 16 in the late 1980s, then tore down and rebuilt cabins 12, 13 & 14 in the late 1990s.

2021, the 4th generation of Secors (Neal Secor & Mandi Secor Lipscomb) take over management of Waltonia Lodges. We grew up living and working at Waltonia, so the legacy of this place is so special to us. In the summers, we would look at the schedule to see which friends would be checking in that day. 

We are so appreciative of the families that have been coming to Waltonia Lodges for multiple generations! We continue to value our long-standing families and friends who make Waltonia a very special place. Likewise, we welcome new families and friends as the Waltonia tradition continues.
