Stayed here Oct 20th for the REI Women’s campout. Lovely place. Nice little lake. Clean restrooms. Don’t think I’d swim here. Well kept park with hiking trails.
Beautiful place! We are at campsite 10 right on the lake. Breathtaking tall trees. Well kept clean campsites with a fire pit. The park host brought over firewood right to our site. No need to buy firewood at all. Plenty of cut wood around the park. Easy kid friendly hiking trails around the park. Restrooms were immaculate. So peaceful and quiet at night. I am smitten.
We stayed at the group site at the far end. The shower was a bit of a long hike away. It is an outdoor shower (elevated spigot) next to a parking lot. There is a lot of caliche or fine white dirt that will stick to you on the way back to the campsite. Unfortunately the Colorado River was extremely low too. We hiked Gorman Falls in the day and a mountain biker told us he was just chased by a cougar. Not one of my favorite parks.
We stayed in a large cabin. Plenty of bunk beds. Friendly staff. The Frio River was close by and just beautiful. We kayaked from FM 3337 back to the park.
I’ve camped here many times before. The park was created from the granite quarry used for the State Capitol. There are fishing piers and cleaning stations, kayak and paddle boat rentals. Staff is very friendly. Longhorn Cavern State Park is close by and really cool too.
