When you think of Texas, most don’t think of a hidden oasis or lush green forests, but if you know where to look there are some incredible hidden gems! Like Krause Springs! Here you can enjoy swimming, camping and hiking at this gorgeous natural spring!

Spend the day swimming and exploring or stay the night and see everything this privately owned park has to offer! From the spring fed concrete pool, to natural spring fed swimming hole, waterfall, butterfly gardens and more! Bring your tent or even your RV! They take reservations for RV hookups only, tent camping is available on “first come-first site” basis. 

They have BBQ pits (in the day use area) and burn barrels for camper use. You may bring your own BBQ pit as long as it does not sit on the ground.

September 2015 I made the decision to walk away from my career in Marketing to pursue my dreams. I sold most of my belongings, bought a motorhome, married my best friend and here we are today traveling across America sharing our journey I hope you'll join us and enjoy!
