Beautiful Lake

This is a beautiful, well maintained and very clean park. We were a little concerned about camping here in July with no shade. The breeze off the lake really helped make the 100 degree days better. The water is crystal clear, so we just went down and hopped in the water when it got to hot. We also brought some shade cloth to attach to the picnic table. After a long hot day it was great to use there huge showers to clean up. They were always clean, and very roomy.

6 site Spacious Lakeside Boondocking

6 boondocking sites on the lake with waterless restrooms, trash dumpster, boat ramp, and tons of wildlife, the non invasive kind, ie, dear, water fowl, squirrel, fish, and otter.

Convenient and affordable location

We have had a couple of stays here in our 26-ft travel trailer and really enjoyed the cleanliness and convenience. Good customer service and will definitely visit again!

Great Spot

10 acres in the Texas hill country. Located minutes from Burnet and Lampasas. Highly wooded and secluded with great hill country views. If you are up for a relaxing getaway and getting back in touch with mother nature, this is the spot.

Camped out of the campsite near the lake

We ended up not following our AllTrails after a fork in the road heading towards the campsite, and were pretty pooped so decided to camp there off Sawyer Campsite Rd. People had clearly used the shore as a campsite before as there was a makeshift fire pit and some cleared areas for tents. water and views were beautiful, and it was a nice place to rest after the 6 miles in. Rain started pretty heavily (and being close to the water probably didn’t help with humidity inside the tent) and our rain fly was unwilling to cooperate so we got a bit wet. The home back in the rain was fine. A couple slippery spots but very doable. Overall great time here even though we weren’t at the official campsite.

Beautiful Texas Campsite

It was my first time camping in maybe 15 years. I wanted to pick a campsite that was affordable, not too far of a drive, and seemed primitive enough to feel like camping, while still having amenities like a bathroom and water, if need be.

This had it all. It’s at the head of a trail, just near the river. If you want, you can easily walk down to the river and hike along it. The campsites are spacious, easily allowing our 2 tent set up, but if set up well, they could potentially house 3-4 2-person tents.

The scenery was beautiful. It was Texas, in December, so things were dry and brown and yellow. But there was a serenity to it. At night, the stars were out. The light from nearby Georgetown and Austin didn’t allow for us to see them all, but they were there. The coyotes come out at night, but never got close to camp.

A camp guide caught up to us at about 5pm, and warned us of the coyotes and told us about the water spigot at the front. The walk to our campsite wasn’t far from parking, maybe about 150 feet, maybe a bit more.

There were fire rings at each campsite, and a post that had the number and a hanger for a lantern.

All in all, we had a great time. It made me love camping again. I will certainly be back soon.

River Water

Be sure to test the water before entering. It's seems harmess and may very well be harmless but it will make you and your pets stinky. Easy access to low current knee high water below the damage and easy and fun to walk/ wade around in but again, will lightly stain your clothes and have you smelling like sulfur beans. Has great potential and is usually quiet. View of river is ideal at dusk. Needs a bit of work.

Lovely views

Wonderful time with the family walking the trails enjoying the views

Beautiful scenery

Beautiful scenery along the trails at Dana's Peak
