South Llano River State Park

Let's get together for a camping trip at South Llano River State Park on Sept 13-15th, 2013. This park has river access, so we can stay cool during the hot hours. Plan to bring a tube or pool float!

Our site will have water, but no electricity. The park has restrooms with showers.

Well-behaved children are welcome, just make sure to include them in your RSVP. Leashed dogs are welcome too!

As at all state parks, glass containers are prohibited.

I hope to see you there!

 

Here is the state park's website:

    Hi Donna- when is the earliest that we can get there and set up? Is the site already paid for?

    • Donna

      And yes, ask for the Happy Camper sites.

    Hi, Donna--Fairly new to camping and new to this group! Do we bring ice chests for food, etc. i.e. all our own things? I was going to do that plus tent plus whatever goes inside of it. Anything else I need to know? Are we meeting there at any particular time?

    September 11, 2013

    • Donna

      Shannon....Yes, each camper is responsible for their own food and gear.

    Does anyone have an open spot who is interested in carpooling?

    September 11, 2013

    • Shannon B.

      I will be going on Friday but have to return latish Saturday. Have plenty of space for anyone. I live near Mopac and Parmer.

    • Terry D P.

      Thanks for the offer Shannon. I'm going to hold thru Sunday.

    Kayaking Saturday or Sunday? Rental rate is $30/kayak at both places I called. Trips are either 3 hrs or 5 hrs+, depending on stops to fish, swim, etc. Is anybody else up for kayaking? One outfitter is just a mile from the state park where we'll be.

    Toobs aren't rented outside the S.P. and the other Junction camp, Shady Morgan. (I called most-not-all outfitters in Junction.) The S.P. toob trips are relatively short but fun. I'll definitely be on and in a toob there, but as usual, I'm looking for more fun.

    September 11, 2013

    • Terry D P.

      Definitely up for kayaking!

      September 11, 2013

    • Lynne L.

      Moonis and I might do it

      September 11, 2013

  • Donna

    It looks like we are going to have great, late-summer weather for this trip with 92 for the high temps on Friday and Saturday (89 on Sunday!) and 67 for the nighttime lows!

    The park's stretch of the S. Llano River is not that long, but has a bit of all the river. That is, there's a beautifully shaded, slow-running stretch, then a bit of a rapids chute (popping through under the road), then a "regular" toob run. There are also toob outfitters in the Junction area, in case we want to organize a longer trip.

    The park is next to a wildlife preservation area, where there are African black buck antelope and more. The area is on the merge between the Hill Country and the Great Chihuahuan Desert, so there's a mix of critters and such. (I like typing "Chihuahua" almost as much as saying the classic Mexican exclamation, "Aii Chihuahua!") In fact, the park has some of the better bird blinds in the State Parks system. Junction is just an hour away from the Caverns of Sonora, a unique cave complex that has intriguing rock formations, well-lit for photography. Yeah, I like the S. Llano River and this state park!
