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.

We had a great time. Great place to swim. Great place to bring the kids to swim. Great place to have a picnic or BarBQ. And they now have a person at the gate to let you in.

Yes, we have had the same issue before with the gate, however, the last two times we went were manned. We like this park, has enough space so you are not on top of people. Dog are allowed, I think they are the only park that allows them.

The gate never opens right. The machine rarely accepts your money. Today (7/20/08) the gate wouldn't open and people were trying to enter through the exit. It was very caotic. The park needs to go back to the two people that used to man the entrance.

The park entrance is not manned. A payment machine is available but you have no recourse when it keeps your money and the gate doesn't open as happened to us today. Credit cards are not acceptable so after you work to get the machine to accept your $5, the gate doesn't open. Very disappointing.
