State Park Swimming Holes

This is Passport to Texas

Nothing can cool off the whole family on a hot summer’s day faster than a dip in the cool waters of a state park swimming pool.

Our State park guide, Bryan Frazier tells us about a couple of well loved pools in Central Texas.

45—We have some great parks with fantastic swimming pool facilities; sometimes the only pool facility in the entire county. And so in Central Texas we have LBJ SP that has a great swimming pool facility there.

And then, too, Bastrop and Lockhart were built by the CCC. And they’re just beautiful and clean. Bastrop SP has got some new renovations with new restrooms, with a new pool liner. So that experience is even better. Now, they all have summer hours, and you can find those out on our website You can find season passes at these pools, and at Bastrop SP they even have swimming lessons that are available. So, that’s one more option to make a State Park destination a great getaway.

Thanks, Bryan.
