February 1-4 Camping Trip Colorado Bend State Park
Make your reservations asap as this hidden gem is becoming more and more popular and will fill up. As of 10/12/17 there are only 11 drive up sites suitable for rvs (30ft max) the first weekend of Feb 1-4 Thurs thru Sun, $15 per night.
This is a boondocking camp – no hookups or dump station, no shower facilities. There are several water spigots and composting toilets.
Activities: Gorman Falls, Spicewood Springs and River trails are all awesome. IF the river is flowing, there’s a possibility for kayaking. Who wants to explore a natural cave? Cave tours must be reserved in advance – $12, Discovery tour 45 mins, doesn’t involve crawling, but is still a wild (natural) cave with no installed lighting, etc http://cbcaves.com/
We’ll work out details as the date approaches. Of course, plan for pot luck dinner on Friday night, and bring something to grill on Saturday night to enjoy with left overs.
If there’s a great deal of interest and all sites are booked at Colorado Bend State Park, there are sites across the river at Sulphur Springs Camp (approx 10 miles away by road) with hookups for rvs ($28) and cabins (listed on web, plus hotel tax) for those who might want that choice. I haven’t ever camped Sulphur Springs, so could be an adventure! http://www.bendtexas. com
