Lovely reception room and kitchen area to handle catering including walk in fridge. Outdoor amphitheater for wedding ceremony was rustic, sweet and included benches for guests. The couple that got married there said all experiences with the management were top notch. We enjoyed the wedding very much!

We spent an afternoon at McKinney Roughs on their rock climbing wall and zip line. We arranged the trip through the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort. It was an excellent experience all around.

I can't ever get enough of McKinney Roughs. I always used to send my son there for summer camps. We visit in between and just adore the natural environs. The science is an added bonus!

Beautiful and informative place to visit. The hikes are great and the grounds are awesome. Make sure to bring sunscreen and wear a hat during the summer months.

Trails well maintained and loved the birds along the Colorado River. Great pix of a snowy egret. Miles of trails to explore and nice welcome center.

Wandered over from the Lost Pines where I was at a conference. As a northerner, I was timid about snakes and other creatures that might be in the woods, but felt reassured by the broad trails and numerous signs. The trails are lined with lush greenery with wildflowers emitting the most fragrant smells. The trails are shared with horses, but... More

We went on a 2 hour float that ended at the Hyatt where we were staying. The guides, Mark and Jessie, were so nice and knowledgeable about the area. They made the experience great for my kids. This really is the best way to see the river.
