Must swim!

This a nice state park. Cottontails, chipmunks, turtles, roadrunners, quails, and woodpeckers are everywhere. But the must is to swim in the giant spring-fed pool. Fish swimming around you. We were there early on a Wednesday so only a few other people were there. It was a little chilly but I went in and it was worth it.

We stayed here in a Tent.

One of the better known. . .

. . .State Parks of Texas, hence often used and fully booked. The great draw here is the swimming pool for all. There is also a nice motel unit and large, canopied picnic benches for protection from the sun. A very pleasant place to stay

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.

Great Water Park

Great water park but the campground has small, close-together sites. Ours had trash left on it. Restrooms are older and in need of repair but kept clean.

Pleasant break from the desert and the highway

That is one tiring drive across west TX in the heat. We decided to pull off the highway and take an overnight break. What a very pleasant surprise for us. Nice rv sites with a picnic table under a canopy. A short walk over to the pool area (what a pleasant surprise for us, cool clear water, and you can swim with the fishes). We will look forward to our next stop at this park.

We stayed here in a 5th Wheel.
