Overall rating: 

Beautiful swimming hole

It’s one of the nicest natural swimming locations in the Austin area. Highly recommend. It is a nude park, but that adds to the uniqueness of the location. The people are super friendly as long as you’re not standoffish due to the fact their nude

Favorite Place

Beautiful place and the only public park in Texas that is clothing optional. Very friendly people, nothing skeezy about it at all, super relaxing and highly recommended.

Ye

Probably Some Of the nicest Water In texas But It's Of Course a nudist resort if you go down stream it just gets muckier really hope it can become kid friendly
