This is such a beautiful little spot in the Texas hill country in Kingsland. It can be reallly crowded on weekends and holidays. But, if you're lucky enough to visit during the week, it is so relaxing. It's a stream with large granite outcroppings to...More

great spot to listen to the flowing river and to take the kids and pets. Be careful here for snakes though. certain times of the year the snakes are seen. Love the slab for sunbathing and laying in the flowing Llano river.

Fun place to play in the water & sandy areas on a sunny day. Issue with people leaving their trash behind.

This is a fun summer place to go and play in the cool flowing water, sand and granite rocks. Great place to enjoy the outdoors and spend the day with friends or family. The only negative is the inconsiderate slobs that leave their trash behind.

Very pretty hill country spot. It's really a shame people don't seem to pick up after themselves there.

Yes. But i would recommend on a leash unless your dog minds real well. Also time of day plays a big issue as to people traffic and other dogs.
