My boys and I had a great time wading and walking in the water, looking for fish and crawdads. The rocks are awesome and fun to climb on and explore. Like others said, beware of stagnant water. This free attraction is a must see!

The grandkids loved "big rocks" they ran, climed, crawled on and under the boulders. They were ready for bed that night! Be careful the rocks are famous for bunged up knees.

This is on the steepest river in Texas, so kayakers love it when at flood stage. The park is free and a favorite of people wanting to wade in a stone bottom river.

Nice place to take a young kid so he can climb around these natural rocks. Hate Hate Hate, that people feel they have to deface rocks by spray painting their initials or whatever they feel they have to put on these natural beauties.

Pretty cool if your little one is as big a rock hound as mine and since it's free it is an awesome way to kill an hour or two was windy and cold the day we went might be more fun on a nice day and might be a five star then
