Reserve Campsite 34!

Had a great night camping at Lake Somerville SP-Nails Creek. It was really quite with only 2 other sites occupied. Lots of coyotes and owls calling throughout the night. The site was not too far from the bathroom and had great privacy. Didn’t use the horse corral, but each site has 1-2.

Tested out our klymit static v2 sleeping pads and LOVED them. It was a bit cold as hadn’t thought to bring an extra blanket and slept without the rain fly—but not too bad.

Tried the Backpackers Pantry Pad Thai and Mountain Home Biscuits and Gravy and all were terrific.

Christmas Stay

Stayed here for Christmas Eve. Beautiful campsites that overlook the lake. Not much to the local town. Would definitely stay again.

Fantastic stay!

This is definitely one of my favorite campsites. Stayed on a Sunday night in February so the campground was empty. Was woken up a couple of times throughout the night by a Great Horned Owl, but no complaints. Would definitely stay here again, clean bathrooms, nice site, and great habitat.

Great place for birds

Interesting park. Used to be a full RV campground but has limited camping to hike-in primitive only. Bathrooms are about .3 miles away. Busy season is November-February when birds are easy to spot and winter Texans are in. Fun place to hike and check out what is in the bird blinds.

Great for fishing

Great park for fisherman with lots of lake access points and several boat ramps. Tons of camping options, although many are in grassy areas that don’t provide much privacy.

Meridian SP

Had a great stay at the park. Would have liked to stay in the primitive sites with water, but had a lot of highway noise. Also, heard some critters rustling around at night, armadillos probably.

We arrived after the park store had closed, but checked in when they opened at 8:15am. Fun Hill Country-ish park with lots of interesting topography. Looks like there is a plethora of trails to explore.
