Pace Bend Park (aka Paleface)

paleface 7This 1,368-acre park on beautiful Lake Travis is operated by Travis County with over nine miles of shoreline making it one of the more popular parks at the lake if for no other reason than you should always be able to find a nice place to camp and go swimming here. By the way, nine miles is a ridiculous amount of shoreline. There are other features you might find useful such as the designated for swimming only areas Mudd Cove, Kates Cove and Gracy Cove. Lots of folks like to come here for cliff diving, but be careful not to land on a rock and break your neck especially given how low the water is. The terrain is varied, but the rule of thumb is the western side of the park is known for its cliffs and the eastern side has more of a gentle slope down to the water so pick your campsite accordingly. They also have constructed some mountain biking trails out here that are on the low to medium side of the difficulty scale.  There also is a huge area of land available for hiking at the park and after you finish the hike you can go for a swim to cool down.  Pets are OK if on a leash and RV sites are available. From the intersection of RR 620 and Hwy. 71, take Hwy. 71 west 11 miles to RR 2322 or Pace Bend Park Road. Turn right and follow the road to the park entrance.
