“Great spot for hiking and geocaching”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

This is a really beautiful location that is relatively flat. Great location for hiking and provides a good view of the river. Has about ten geocaches located throughout the park. Saw a couple mountain bikers pass by as I hiked and up at the back of the part are some nice running trails.

“Okay to kill a couple of hours.”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Took the family here during the early afternoon. I think we would have enjoyed it more had the weather cooperated. If it had been a 90+ degree day, the water would have felt a lot better. The swimming hole was not as large as I had envisioned, but my daughter still seemed to enjoy it, and that is all that matters. The rope swing was a lot of fun. Overall it is a good place to take the family to have a picnic and get a little wet. Was not as great in my opinion as the locals made it out to be, but we had a good time nonetheless.

“This is the river from the Shiner Bock commercial!”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

This is the river from the Shiner Bock commercial! The one that says, "you get just as many Tuesdays as Saturdays," with the guy on the rope swing doing a flip into the water.

Place is beautiful and very well kept. Great place for a relaxing afternoon in nice weather.

“Great place for a family picnic”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

This was our first time so I had no idea what to expect. It's a pretty big park with trails, fields and a playground. You can't even see the swimming hole until you pay the fee to get in, it's like $8 per adult, $4 per kid (the park itself is free). We arrived at noon and were told we couldn't go to the swim hole until 2:30 b/c they were at capacity already (they opened at 10). Sure it was a bit inconvenient, but the swim hole is pretty small so I can see why they put a limit on the number of people who can come in. We grabbed some lunch and came back right before 2 and waited at the entrance to the swim hole to get in at 2:30. Once we were in, it was beautiful! There's a nice flat grassy area where you could set up your towels or picnic blanket. A good mix of sun & shade on the grassy area. There are a few picnic tables as well. The water is definitely cool and refreshing and the tree swings were a ton of fun. Definitely wear some water shoes though!

“Loving this river, especially after a hot summer day! :)”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Ohhh, I loved this place!

We were a bit late as we arrived there (7 p.m.) but that didn't stuck us to go in and check out the place!

The office wasn't open but the gate was held open so we could go in and walk in the park as it was open to the public.

As there were no guard around the "pool", we quickly changed our clothes and jumped into the water! Why not! We won't, for sure, be coming here another time (from Finland?)! Or..you can neeeveeeer know...

The place was amazing!! The peace.. the nature.. the cattle on the other side of the river.. No one around.. Just the two of us swimming calm around in the pool.. Relaxing and looking up to the blue sky, through the trees' green leaves.. (Though a little bit afraid of the alligators =D )

After we had been swimming, the owner came calm to us and told that the place had closed for an hour ago, but he let us swim (didn't want to run after us...). That was nice! At the gate he - after having been so incredibly friendly towards us - furthermore, asked us if we wanted to come there again tomorrow! "Hmmmm...why not", we answered.. And got free passes for the next day! Ohhh, what a service! (Unfortunately we didn't have time to go there again the next day because of our tight schedule, toooo baaad! :(( )
