What a beautiful and well-maintained park! We loved the classic Texas Hill Country landscape. The trails were mostly a mix of sand and granite rocks, and while it wasn't very well marked, the map we were given by the friendly staff at headquarters was pretty helpful (entrance fee is $6 for each person). Our GSD loved it. Would recommend trash receptacles for dog poop and camping litter, but other than that, it was exactly what we had hoped! The grasshoppers and prickly pears are out in full force right now, along with a bunch of campers, kayakers, and people swimming/picnicking. Really had a lovely time today!

Kristen and I hiked area around devils something swimming hole. Where spring river meets inks lake. Trails were nice. Pleasantly hilly. Many wildflowers. And many flowers. I jumped off
Cliff into nice cool water. So many campers. Every slot filled. Too crowded from me.
