Beautiful natural spring pool

Added another of the 95 state parks to visit. This one is known for it beautiful spring fed pool. 4 ft on one end, it goes to 25 ft at the deepest. It also has many fish living in the water. If you go, have swim gear including water shoes as the bottom is pretty rough. If you scuba, that is permitted here as well. Lots of fun just to stop off with the kids if you are headed some place else.


This is always my basecamp for exploring west Texas. A huge swimming hole in the desert, what's not to love?

spring fed pool

What an awesome spring fed pool! So crazy that this wetland and springs are in the middle of the desert. Stopped here to check out the park and were so pleased with the facilities. The nature program we participated in was informative yet fun. The campground is pretty average with decent sized sites and there is some privacy with the sheltered picnic tables. There is little to no shade and the sites all are in view of each other, but it’s to be expected in the desert :) Nice scenery around the campground.

Campground OK, but the huge spring fed pool is awesome!
