Swamp land

This a cool campsite right off the Colorado river. The trails remind me of swamp lands the way they made the trails. If your into geocaching there is plenty of it.

One of the best in Texas

This is an awesome park. Has so much to do you can’t get bored here. It has great elevated trails that once reached has beautiful views of the hill country, with cool caves along the way. The Frio River runs right through the park and is amazing to swim and float in. They have a full store and food truck if your not into cooking your own food. And summer nights they have music and dancing right next to the camp grounds which make it easy to walk right back to your tent after. One of my favorite places to camp with a big group of friends.

Perfect night skies

This is one of my favorite places to camp with the wife cause it’s not to harsh and gives some of the best views in Texas. The rock itself is a good climb depending on the route you take, and plenty of hiking surrounding the rock. But at the top you can see the beautiful hill country of Texas and as night rolls in every star in the sky becomes visible. Definitely worth taking a telescope if you have one. They do have restrooms and showers and drinking water is available.

Let the pallets burn

This was a fun campsite that isn’t too far outside the city and too far in the bush. The McKinney falls it self was some of the best water I’ve ever swam in temperature wise, it was perfect. The campsites are kinda close to other ones but not close they can hear your conversations. They do allow open fires and have great trails to walk around but nothing is too rough. Pretty laid back park.

Country living

ok to start off, this state park should really put its main office at the entrance of the park instead of driving to end of the park, just to drive back to the entrance where the camp grounds are. Really inconvenient. The primitive campground was about 1.5 hike to our site, which wasn’t much for a view or since it’s so far from anything else. The hiking trails were great and definitely get your steps in. Grasshopper littered the floors near campgrounds and no open fires are allowed. But plenty of exploring can be done if you follow the trails.
