info. I didn't check my email this morning and just headed out there
to get the same info. The tent camping area looks to be a real nice
GRASS field of a dozen acres or so. There is also some camping back
under the trees. It's all real close to the water and the swim beach.
All together, a great place for a family campout. I've stayed at
McKinney Falls a couple times with our church youth group and it's
much more typical of Texas camping - dirt and rocks under cedar and
oak and lots of poison ivy.
PS - I also checked out two of the caches in the park. One -
UncleRojelio's Recycled Cache - is the most scenically beautiful of
all the geocaches I've been to so far. The other - EMMA's a goth
godess by PrincessButtercup - is a bitch of a scramble to get to. It's
the first cache I've been to where, even after I located it, I wasn't
sure I could get to it!
