Reynolds Creek sits on the scenic shores of Waco Lake and provides a variety of outdoor activities, including equestrian camping - everything makes Reynolds Creek a great place for Lake Waco camping.
The Tejas Nature Trail, an easy 1.2-mile hike, starts at the park and winds its way through a thick blanket of ash and juniper trees. For visitors looking for a more challenging trek, horseback riding and biking can be done on the 20-mile Lacy Point Hiking and Biking Trail.
The main lake shoreline has a large amount of submerged timber, which typically holds fish year-round. Anglers will find plenty of catfish, crappie, large and smallmouth bass as well as sunfish.
A boat ramp and dock help visitors enjoy the lake.
Reynolds Creek offers 51 spacious campsites, including 10 equestrian sites. Day-use picnic sites are available on a first come, first serve basis. Equestrian camping is available year-round and regular camping is available from April 1-September 30.
Waco Lake, which lies in the city limits of Waco, Texas, is fed primarily by the Bosque River, which runs for 115 miles through central Texas.
The sparkling lake was formed in 1963 with the completion of the Lake Waco Dam. Now, the lake's current water levels are at 79,000 acre feet.
Waco Lake Wetlands educational tours take visitors through a six-acre nursery of aquatic plants and more than 130 species of birds.

This park is located out in boonies and can be pretty difficult to find. Most people think they are lost trying to get to it, but if you follow North Speegleville road through all the cornfields you will eventually stumble upon it. Believe me, you're not going the wrong way.
Being lakefront property you would expect to see more water, however there is a lot of brush grown up around the lake and sites so it is hard to see. There are also limited places to get down to the water in the park.
There is a nice boat ramp and dock for fishing. It is also pet friendly and equestrian friendly. There is a nice little 1 mile hike were you can bird watch and view the lake Waco, it is very shaded and flat. Then there is a 20 mile hike/ equestrian trail that goes around Lacey point.
Bathrooms and showers need some work, but they do the job. There is no store at the campground, but there is a dollar general located in Speegleville about 4 minutes away. There are picnic tables at ever site along with a fire pit, and also a playground for kids.
The whole park is very secluded and away from street noise which is so lovely. Perfect place for viewing the stars over the water and listening to nature speak around you!
