Krause Springs!

Yes, It's HOT in Austin! But staying indoors with fake cold air is no fun. Drinks, meeting awesome people and keeping cool in a natural swimming hole sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday! They have a rope swing and cliff diving as well.

For those who haven't been to Krause Springs ( from their website)

" It is a well-known camping & swimming site located in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. It is located in Spicewood, Texas approximately 30 miles west of Austin. The 115 acre property is listed on the National Registry of Historical Sites and has been privately owned by the Krause Family for over 50 years.

Krause Springs has many natural sites to explore. There are 32 springs on the property, and several feed the man-made pool and the natural pool which flows into Lake Travis. It's a refreshing treat to swim in the Springs during the hot summers of Texas!"

Where to meet- TWO OPTIONS:

#1: Meet at my house at 8:45 and you can follow us there. We will leave promptly at 9:00 A.M. It tends to get crowded over the weekend and I want to try to claim us a spot near the water. I'll email my address out a couple of days before. I live right near Zilker park so it's a easy shot to 290/71 which is the way to get to Krause Springs. I know it's early for a Saturday morning. But it's definitely worth spending the day there!

#2 : Meet at Krause springs main swimming hole at 10:00 -10:15 A.M . I'll tie a balloon to the coolers. You can ask at the front entrance how to get the swimming hole with the rope swing. I'll try to lay several blankets out to save some spots. But I can't hold them with only a few people. So try to come out by 10:00 A.M:)

* People can leave anytime the want. I'm expecting to be out there till at least 3:00 P.M.

What to bring:

- Floatie/Noodle

- Towel/Blanket

- Lunch: Sandwiches, chips or anything that can hold well in a cooler.

- Drinks. Alcohol is permitted but no glass containers!Don't forget water!

- Small cooler. I will be bringing two larger coolers if some people want to throw in their lunch or drinks .

- Water shoes or non slippery sandals. Walking down to main swimming hole can get pretty slippery.

Cost:

-$6.00 entrance fee. BRING CASH. They don't accept any cards.

Hope to see you guys out there!

Disclaimer:

Sorry guys have to add this in since alcohol will be involved.

    The hike down isn't really much of hike. About 5 minutes . It's a bit slippery in some parts though.

    June 29, 2012

  • aleena

    There are bathrooms to change into. But you can come in your swimming shorts. I think most are. Wheeled coolers would have to be carried for a part of the way when you head down to the swimming hole. If you need help one us can help if you have a large cooler.

    June 29, 2012

  • Jeremy A.

    Will there be a place to change? Or should we come dressed for the water?

    Also: What's the hike like from the parking lot down to the water? Will wheeled coolers make it or will we need to carry them?

If you or Jonathan Michaels both want to carpool, I still have two spots in my car in case neither of you want to drive. I live right by Alamo draft house on south Lamar.

Jeremy- Seems a few would love to carpool:) Robyn- I will definitely do another one especially given the Austin heat! Dan-if you need a ride I believe we have a spot in our car. Just not sure if you have to be back in austin at a certain time.

    Whoop! Whoop! Looks it will be in the high 90's this Saturday. A perfect day out at Krause Springs. I'll email out my address on Thursday for those who want to meet at my house. Not sure if this a jello shot crowd but as I was cleaning out my pantry I have tons of supplies left from some party. So i might make some and bring those out and if there are no takers from this group I'm sure some swimmers at Krause Springs will enjoy them:) Let me know if you guys have any questions!
