This park is a good place to enjoy the outdoors among the beautiful granite hills outside of Burnet and Marble Falls. It has over seven miles of trails and more than 20 of those screened shelters that can come in darned useful at times. There are several nice places to camp down by the water that are nestled in amongst the trees at one end of the park at campsites 346 and 347, which makes this one of our favorite lake parks to go camping. A number of tours and guided activities are available at the park including full moon tours during the fall and winter – get your hands away from me. You should really consider taking a dip at Devil’s Waterhole during the warmer months, but jumping off the rocks here is at your own risk. It is one of the more scenic spots in the Hills and often is on the top ten lists of swimming holes so you should get here early to avoid the crowds.  Turkey and woodpeckers live in the park as do many other species of birds. Ask whether the sand bass or cats are biting and whether they have canoes and kayaks for rent during your visit. This can also be a good place to view wildflowers in the spring. Pets are OK if on a leash and there are limited use cabins available.  Be sure to check their events schedule regularly because they often offer guided hikes and other programs here.
