Great Fall Camping, Equestrian Area

A nice, quiet fall camping weekend on Lake Somerville. It was a solo trip and since the weather was warm, I brought my kayak on this trip.

Check In: 2p Check Out: 12p

β›Ί Site#26- Back-In

πŸ’²20 per night+$4/person/day Parks Pass Discount saved$18.00

β€’ Water
β€’ 20/30 amp
β€’ Fire Ring with grate
β€’ Picnic Table: wood with metal legs, concrete base
β€’ Site Pad: Asphalt, level, long enough for my camper and truck with room to spare
β€’ Corrals for horses

πŸ‘πŸ» Pros:

β€’ Extra parking places across the street
β€’ Can see the lake from this spot

πŸ‘ŽπŸ» Cons:

β€’ There's not a direct trail to the lake shore other than animal trails through some of the tall grass
β€’ The table and fire ring are on the non-camping side so it was a little strange. Very dark at night on that side.

πŸ“ Park Notes:

β€’ Dump Station
β€’ Restrooms/ Showers- clean. The Bent Tree area has a portable trailer for the restrooms and showers. The main building is closed.
β€’ There are Munzees and Geocaches here
β€’ Lots of trails in the park and between this and the Birch Creek Unit
β€’ Great trails for equestrians
β€’ Enclosed Group shelter for events (no kitchen)
β€’ Family Fishing Pond (small)
β€’ The open style pavilion doesn't appear to be open. Looks like it's is structurally unsound

🐦 Wildlife:

β€’ Birds: Great Blue Heron, Cardinals, Chickadees
β€’ Deer
β€’ Squirrels

πŸ’œ Highlights of this trip:

β€’πŸ”₯ Campfires and breakfast over the fire

β€’πŸ• My brother came for a short visit to walk the dog

β€’πŸ›Ά Kayaking and there was only ONE other boat on the lake

β€’πŸ‚ Nice fall colors

β€’πŸš« Some of the trails and areas of the park were closed this weekend due to public hunts

β€’πŸŒŸ Warm temperatures and clear nights. Lots of stars.

β€’πŸ’š Found a couple geocaches and put out a few Munzees

Awesome spot

Stopped in here for a place to stay while on a hunting trip. Service was phenomenal and they answered any questions on the spot. Good space between locations. Far enough from town to feel out in nature but close enough to make a run if needed.

Perfect Stopover!

Stopped into here on the way from Austin down to the coast.

Snagged site #4 and I was the only one in the primitive camp area.

Bathrooms at entrance station stayed unlocked overnight for my use.

AT&T cell service was good enough for me to do some work on my hotspot.

Went for a nice paddle on the lake until the winds came up.

Only bummer was losing my kayak straps off the top of my truck on my way out!
