I had visited this park the year it opened in the early 1970's and returned for the first time since then. It is a beautiful park and offers amazing views not seen anywhere else in Texas. I would like to camp here at some point.

My favorite park in the Hill Country!! It has something to offer winter, spring summer and fall. Great camping facilities, swimming areas, bike trails and walking paths.

We could climb over these rocks all day! Highly recommend the trip to Pedernales Falls. I thought we’d have time to do the main Falls and twin falls as well, but we were too fascinated by the main Falls. I highly recommend reserving your spot...More
