Default Camping in/around Kyle

Im looking to do some camping in/around the Kyle/Buda area. Id actually even go as far south as New Braunfels or as far north as Round Rock maybe. The only things I have found online are actual campgrounds that cost like $25 a night! and include water/electric hookups. (Have we really become that "soft"?)

Im looking for some areas that are free, or as close to free as possible, that I can take my son camping. It would be great if there were some sort of river, lake, or spring near by as well. Any ideas?

TPWD: State Parks Near Austin

Maybe McKinney Falls or Pedernales Falls? Hamilton Pool is not too far from Pedernales Falls, if you wanted to visit that during the trip.

There are campgrounds along the Guadalupe River upstream of Canyon Lake that are a lot less crowded then what you will find downstream of Canyon Lake. Such as Guadalupe Canoe Livery

The Guadalupe Canoe Livery is on the NorthWest corner of the intersection between Hwy 281 and the Guadalupe River. The farmer who owns the land on the SouthEast corner also used to rent out camping spots. He had a nice grassy tree shaded campground, right above the river, I don't have a name or number for him but its worth checking out.
