Martin Creek Lake State Park

Martin Creek Lake State Park

Today was a perfect day.  It started with a light rain, but soon the skies cleared and the sun shone.

We stopped mid-afternoon at a Texas state park.  It was amazing.  Lots of gum trees, pine, and oak trees.  A large reservoir with an island to explore.  Widely spaced sites.  But the best part, we are the only people here.  Our own private campground.

We took a 1.5 mile hike then cooked some more of our leftovers for dinner.  We need to empty the refigerator before we fly off to Belize.

Review of Martin Creek Lake State Park:  58 sites.  Some sites have cabins.  Some are for camping.  All have either 30 or 50 amp service with water.  There is a premium for lake side sites.  Campsite rates range from 13 to 23 dollars.  Boat ramp.  Lots of parking for day use.  If there is a draw back it is the large power plant on the other side of the lake. (But it is beautiful when it is lit at night.)
