  • Actually this is more of a place to swim, but we also enjoyed the beautiful gardens and the full moon made for a romantic walk by the swimming hole. The ground are magnificent and it was easy to forge...  more »
  • Great place for family to cool off from the relentless summer heat. Good family fun with campsites available too. No pets. Cement pond and lower grotto natural pool with rope swing off ancient Cypress...  more »
  • If you're in texas you have to go to this place. It is an amazing natural landscape. Account with a huge freshwater lake where there are waterfalls, a rope to throw yourself into the water... in addition to fun and spend a day on a great site, the place is spectacular. Certainly of the most recommended, get off at bathing lake and lost on the roads that has.

  • The experience was great! Don't listen to the people saying the rocks are too slick, they aren't! The only advice I'd give you on the rocks is to not walk around on them barefoot, it makes your feet sore. I went there on a Sunday and it didn't start getting busy until about 3:00pm. The 20ft cliff jumping is kinda dangerous, the water you jump into is pretty shallow (like 6ft) so I'd be careful. The rope swinging is fun to watch and do. Then there's the waterfall! It's beautiful with all the plants and cold water running off the cliff. If you go to the back you'll see a little dark cave that's fun and spooky to swim into! The water depths change a lot in the natural pool. One minute it's 5ft the next it's nearly 10ft. The water temperature is cool but just right if you like a little chill. I would definitely come back here! Oh and the gardens gorgeous, there are bright colors everywhere! They also have GIANT wind chimes! The whole place is beautiful!
  • Gorgeous spring-fed pool and creek. The cypress trees at this property have wider trunks than others I've encountered around other parts of Central Texas. Tons of families were out enjoying the swimming hole and day-use area during my visit.
  • This place is beautiful and amazing, nice swimming pool fed by the springs that runs over into a nice swimming hole with waterfall and rope swing. Staff was wonderful and I can't say enough good things about it. You must see this place.
  • Beautiful campground, gardens, spring pools. Plenty of semi private campsites. Quiet campground during the week, but busy on the weekends. Cold water only showers in a neat stone building. $30 a night primitive site.
  • Gorgeous swimming hole! I can't wait for the weather to cool down a bit so we can go for some hikes.
