Day trip swim at Krause Springs & Opie's BBQ

Let's go swimming at Krause Springs. There is a spring-fed swimming pool and another swimming area down the hill by the waterfall. We'll meet at Opie's for some BBQ at noon and then head to the Springs about 1. The entrance fee is $6 per person, cash only.

 

We'll meet at Opie's BBQ at noon and then head to Krause Springs about 1. For anyone that wants to carpool from North Austin, we'll meet in the Target parking lot at 183 & Great Hills Trail. For anyone south or central, please post below and coordinate a ride if you need one.

    Forecast for the Spicewood area says rain until about noon, then cloudy with temps rising into the high 80s and low 90s to about 4pm. Waiting to hear what Andrew thinks about this before I put on my swimming trunks though.

    June 9, 2013

    • Jason

      I already got rained out at the Austin Rowing Center. Weather need not slow me down no more.

      June 9, 2013

    • Jason

      I'll still be there at target 11

      June 9, 2013

    Weather forecast looks good for the rest of the day. We're still on.

      Hey guys, I'm downtown and willing to drive, if you're still looking to carpool.

      June 9, 2013

  • Courtney E.

    i live about 3 miles from the place and its pouring down rain over here! hopefully it clears up, but my man and i will go regardless.

    June 9, 2013

  • Diana

    I'll be at the target at 11! I can drive or would ride too, whatever's needed.

    June 8, 2013

  • Andrew K

    For those meeting at the North Austin Target, please be there at 11 so we can get to Opies by noon. Meet in the back corner of the parking lot near the 183 & Great Hills intersection.

    For those coming from South or Central Austin, the Wal Mart on 290 and 35 might be a good place to meet. I'm the only organizer so I can't be in both places at once. Please post if you still don't have a ride or if you have room in your vehicle.

    June 8, 2013

    • Wendy

      I may just head straight to the park and bypass Opie's. Where in the park will everyone meet up?

      June 8, 2013

    • Andrew K

      Probably the swimming pool or the Springs. I will be at Opie's with the main group and I will post when we head over.

      June 8, 2013

  • Andrew K

    If anyone missed the comments below, there's a groupon discount for Opie's: http://www.groupon.com/deals/opie-s-barbecue?pt=aUbNzhzAAAABuvGAXvQ4wSQBE6SfFZ032

    I've got room for three, I will be at Targe tomorrow.... I will be doing the BBQ at Opies as well.

    June 8, 2013

  • J. J. E

    There is a groupon for Opies going on right now!

    2 · June 8, 2013

  • Courtney E.

    So if anyone has been to krause before, they DO have a BBQ area where you can bring your own food and grill out. I actually love opies, i went to krause and got food from there last night and spent $50 on 2 1/2 lbs of meat and potatoes. I was okay with that because it was amazing but If everyone is okay with spending an excessive amount of money on food, then I'll go. But I think it would be a lot cheaper for everyone if we all just brought something to cook. Either way I'm open to anything and excited to go back.

      Yes, but no glass bottles allowed.

    For those carpooling from the north austin target - I am willing to drive if needed if you'd like to chip in for gas. However - I may be heading straight to the park with food to grill instead of stopping for BBQ.

    So Andrew, what time should people meet at Target? I presume it's not at noon, because Opie's is at least 40 minutes away.

    June 5, 2013

    I'm definitely in for the carpool at the target up north!

    June 5, 2013

    I'll be coming with a friend early (skipping Opie's) because we can't stay too late. Any way we'll be able to find everyone?
