This week’s swimming hole recommendation is Crook Park in San Marcos. It is a little known park right on the river just downstream from the Rio Vista dam and it isn’t nearly as crowded as its neighbor to the north. You can park across the street from Herbert’s. It is a great place to visit.
This holiday weekend would be a great time to head over to Inks Lake State Park. That is when they will be featuring a night time hike, kayak lessons and a star party. On top of all that you can spend the afternoons cooling off at the always popular Devil’s Water Hole. Not a bad way to spend the weekend. Photo from TPWD files.
The end of August brings with it the end of the grape harvest season in the Hill Country. That means it is time to head out to the grape stomps where they feature specials on select bottles, grape stomp competitions, tastings and live music. Becker Vineyards will be holding their grape stomp this weekend in Stonewall and after you go there you could head over to Albert or Luckenbach to hear some music.
