Back in the 60's, this was a little-known very lovely oasis, but over the years became increasingly popular, so much so that apparently now in the summer is overrun. Still, in the off season, it is a must visit, and worth it to take a long walk and swim in. Just wear shoes, as there is broken glass.

Nice place to go cool off in the heat of the Texas summer, paddle in the rock pools........... You could take a picnic and enjoy an afternoon.

We really enjoyed hanging out & swimming here. We did not see a lot of trash or ppl for that matter. I can see how things probably get crazy on weekends & during the summer. Ppl always seem to use & abuse places especially when they are free. There were some ladies fishing. Someone had caught 4 carp & just... More

Go early on the weekends before noon the licals start to show us around 1. Did not see much trash at all. Be sure to bring good water shoes. The rocks are quite slippery.

An old hang out place. Fun in the sand and clear cool rapids of the Llano River. You can just relax in the water or do some tubing. Be careful walking on the big granite rocks.

This use to be a nice place but the trash, broken glass and drunks may it a hazard for families and children. Fights breakout on the weekends and parking is non existent. People let their dogs run loose and so dog fights are also not uncommon.

No water, due to the drought. The people that come to hang out and swim leave trash, dirty diapers,etc. It would be a great place if people would clean up after themselves. We need a flood to wash away the trash!
