Amazing swimming spot within and hour of San Antonio and Austin.
Set your directions for Overlook Park. A short trail will guide you down the rocky slopes to get to the main beach. A slight trail to the left will take you along the shoreline to a more secluded spot. It's a bit rocky, so either bring a chair or a cushion to sit on. Floaties are a nice addition, and possibly a sun hat and a book. This is Texas chilling at it's finest, though technically there is a no alcohol policy. But with such a beautiful place to swim, you don't need it! Grab some sweet tea instead! After swimming, take a walk across the top of the dam. It provides a beautiful view of the lake and the Guadalupe River it feeds.

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.
