We launched from the Jacobs creek ramp and went out on the lake. We ended up being later than the 6PM closing time to due to an emergency on the lake.

A spur of the moment trip. Partner remembered it from years ago. It is older but very clean. Bring your own stuff and leave it as you found it. Will probably return again. A fan of the Hill Country area anyway.

Like - The park has a roped swimming area - great for kids. Grills, playground and pleanty of pic nic areas are available. Entrance fee is $5/car. Dislike - the entrance is automated and only takes cash (exact amount required). No debit/credit cards.
