Blue Hole Hangout (Wimberley) Water Event Redux

  • July 21, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • HEB

Come play at one of Central Texas best natural water wonders..... Never been?....well, now's your chance.....

Hamilton Pool Meetup was too early for you?.....this one starts later, so there's no excuse.....this means you, Jeffrey....

Meet in the HEB parking lot Slaughter @ Escarpment at 9:30 AM......leave promptly at 10:00 AM for the approx. 40 min. drive to Blue Hole....park opens at 11:00 AM on Sundays....we will carpool for all those who desire....and any who like can go wander the town afterward....

You can bring a cooler.....snacks, etc......bathing suit, floaties....you know what to do.....no glass or pets....fees are $8 per adult and if there are at least 10 of us we can get a 10 punch pass for $56 which makes it only $5.60 per head....CASH ONLY....

This place is FANTASTIC!!!  Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgrMfhtMys0

Lots of parking, and easy accessibility to the park. They recently finished renovations, so there is a nice (short) walkway down to the sun and swimming areas. Around the gate area are changing/restrooms. No showers, but the water is so clean you really wont need to shower before getting back in your car.
The water is cool (a bit warmer than Barton Springs). The swimming area is almost completely shaded by giant Bald Cypress trees. Stone walkways in and out of the pool, and ladders for the deeper areas. If you feel daring, there are 2 swings for you to fling yourself off of.
The park area has nice grass and rock picnic tables. It is also shaded throughout the day by the giant trees.
I called the office today and no special events are planned at this time. They only allow 200 people in the park at a time to help preserve the natural beauty.

NOTE: THERE IS ALWAYS THE CHANCE THAT THE POOL WILL BE CLOSED IF THERE IS INCLEMENT WEATHER......if that occurs, this event will be rescheduled....

    • Shari L.

      I live in Lytton Springs so I'm going to leave here about 9 to make sure I find the HEB, plus I need ice for my ice chest. It will be awful if we go all that way and they won't let us in. Hope you know how to get there. I google it and have a idea.

    Darn, conflict in schedule

    Anybody from Roundrock going? Looking to maybe follow or carpool.

  • Lynda T.

    Looking at the count, this appears to be of much interest. I hope this meet up comes up again on a Saturday rather then Sunday due to church for some. Blue Hole is beautiful and the trails into the town of Wimbo from it are fun :)

  • Anne

    with such a large crowd is it possible some of us wont get in?

    July 20, 2013

    • Pablo

      as we are planning to get there before the park opens, we should all get in....we will be waiting in line when the park opens....

    I would love to go to this place, but I try really hard to stay out of the sun! Any chance we could go again next month and start around 5 or 6 and stay til sunset? =)

    July 16, 2013

    • bellerophon

      j r, i am sun-averse, too, so don't feel alone. my plan is to find shade in which to sit; paddle around in the water, wearing a hat and spf, for a bit; and head back to the shade. i also plan on staying a fairly limited amount of time at the event. all that should equal no sprouting melanomas. just f.y.i.

      2 · July 18, 2013

    • J R.

      Well in that case, your plan sounds wonderful! I can't make it this time, but hope that everyone will want to return soon. =)

      July 19, 2013

  • Lieske P.

    Any idea how long most of you guys will stay for?

    July 18, 2013

    • Pablo

      about 3 hours or whatever folks want....at Hamilton Pool, some left earlier and others stayed later....

      July 19, 2013

  • Shari L.

    This sounds like fun. I live close to San Marcos so if i can find my way it would make more sense for me to leave from here.

    July 17, 2013

    • Shari L.

      Thanks Pablo and yes you will have to find me because I don't think I would recognize you from your photo :)

    Meetup is glitching and it won't take my reply to Renee....so I'm posting here....
    Did you read the writeup?....or watch the video?....this place is the most tree-shaded swimming hole in Texas.....and it closes at 6 pm.....

    July 17, 2013

  • Denise S.

    I am so excited about this and will def meet you all to carpool! Thanks for planning it!

    Would love to go on these Sunday outings. What a nice group of people at fun places! I've had the opportunity to wake surf Sunday Mornings. I miss surfing sooo much, and it's the closest thing to it in in Austin.

    I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time!

  • jeffrey s.

    LOL Paul. Yep better time.

    great idea! blue hole is really terrific and almost mythical around here. i used to take groups to a wimberley-area retreat called "dancing waters," and we'd always spend a lot of time swimming there.
