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.

The trick to this view is that the park gate closes at 5 pm. Therefore you have two options:  Park at the entrance of the park (outside of the gate) and hike into the park.
