Lake Somerville State Park
Think of Lake Somerville State Park as your all-access pass to everything you love about camping and the outdoors. Here you have over 11,000 acres of open water to take advantage of. Whether you’re a die-hard fisher, carefree kayaker, or daring wakeboarder, this spot is the place to be. If you need a small break from the water, there is an easy hike nearby at Flag Pond where you can enjoy the scenery and watch the migrating birds.
Hint: Snag a shoreline campsite early so you can easily be the first out on the water each morning!
Pedernales Falls State Park
For a jaw-dropping setting for your camping excursion, you definitely have to check out Pedernales Falls State Park. The main attraction is a massive 50-foot waterfall cascading over thick slabs of limestone rock. Find a campsite next to the river and easily hike to this spot or a number of other waterfalls and swimming holes nearby.
Hint: If you’re feeling extra adventurous, pick a night to stay in one of the primitive hike-in sites at the base of Wolf Mountain and make the canyon-trail summit in the morning. It’s an experience you’ll never forget, trust us.
