TX Lockhart State Park Retains Comfy, Rural Feel

San Marcos Daily Record
Lockhart TX — The 264-acre Lockhart State Park, originally developed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, retains a rural feel in fast-growing Central Texas, less than an hour's drive from the state capital. A rock wall-lined park road cut by the federally-funded workers following the Great Depression years still winds its way through hardwood forests to the top of a cliff.

A spacious backyard patio, picnic tables and grills benefit from a scenic location atop a 300-foot hill that affords 180-degree views of the countryside and the nearby county seat of Caldwell County.

Nearby, a series of five small rust-colored, rock dams built by the CCC form swirling pools along spring-fed Clear Fork Creek, ideal for fishing for bass, catfish and sunfish. A basketball court, sand volleyball court and hiking trail add to the recreational setting.

Further down the creek sits the park's only campground served by one restroom with hot showers. Ten water-and-electric sites ($15 a night) hug the bank beneath red and live oaks, cedar elms, pecans and mesquite trees. The 10 interior campsites ($18) across the road prove popular with the RV crowd, offering water, electrical outlets, sewerage and a golf course view.
