Beautiful, green, fun park

This is a very nice, green, and shady park!

It offers camping, picnicking, hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, playgrounds, and boating. For boating, you can launch your own, or rent one from the park store, which offers canoes, kayaks, and pedal boats for use on the lake. The store also rents inner tubes for floating on the San Marcos River, which runs through the park.

The park has many trails available for hikers and bikers. It also has structures that were built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and an informative and scenic interpretive trail.

There are a wide range of accommodations ranging from tent sites with water only, RV sites with water and electric, 1 full hookup RV site, and 1 mini-cabin. Some sites are very level, while others have a slope. Water and electric supplies are good. On the technology side, we received a few over-the-air TV stations, from Austin and San Antonio, but they were weak. Also got weak 3G cell phone service from Verizon.

The park was quiet and peaceful, even on a holiday weekend, and it's sites are very shady to help keep you cool.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
