Howard and I enjoy staying at this 500 acre Texas State Park with lake views and access. It is picturesque and quiet (in the early spring anyway, don’t know about the summer when full lake activities begin). Nature trails to walk with lots of wildlife to observe.

I imagine this park wouldn’t be for everyone. Too isolated with few amenities. However, if you love nature, birding, wildlife, peaceful days and dark skies then stop here for a few days.

oOo – A few photos from March, 2016:

The evening glow of sunlight across the park is gorgeous.

All alone.
All alone and loving it!

Lake Colorado City State Park, Texas

We were sitting at the dining table in the RV, at Lake Colorado City State Park, drinking hot chocolate. The day was cold, cloudy and very windy keeping up mostly inside. Kloudy alerted us to the fact that something was in the area. Looking out the window we spotted a covey of Northern Bobwhites.

I scrambled to get my camera to take some photos. These are not the best quality shots, but I enjoyed seeing this group.

This is the closest I have ever been to a covey of Northern Bobwhites and the most I have ever seen at one time.

All alone.
All alone, but not lonely.

We spent two nights at Lake Colorado City State Park, waiting out the snowy weather in Colorado.

Instead of heading to Amarillo and spending our time in a private RV park, we chose to stay another day in this lovely Texas State Park, observing nature without neighbors.

This was our second visit to Lake Colorado City State Park.
