After gorging ourselves on wonderful smoky Texas BBQ we decided it best to move on or else we might gain 25 pounds.. Our next stop would be Potters Creek Campground on Canyon Lake in the hill country of Texas. We love the Texas hill country!
Potters Creek CG is a Corps of Engineers park with a very strict 3:00 pm arrival time so we made sure to time our arrival there by staying as late as we possibly could at Lockhart State Park. Thankfully no one came to run us off since we stayed a little beyond the actual checkout time. After an easy hourlong drive we pulled into the park just after 3:00 pm. Perfect ! We then really scored as we have one of the few waterfront sites.
The only issue on our site is that there is no shade so with temperatures hovering around 90 F we will surely be running both A/C’s to keep cool. Luckily the weather forecast also includes a stiff 20 mph southerly wind over the coming week and with our location being on the side of the lake with the wind blowing right off the water we will likely remain quite cool.
One afternoon we took a drive over to nearby San Marcos for something to do. We found a nice little city park right on the San Marcos River so we parked the CRV to take a leisurely stroll. Rio Vista Park is really a gem of a park right on the river for those looking for a little getaway. Such a relaxing spot we found to enjoy the beautiful river and the rushing water sounds the small falls were making.
As it was nearing happy hour we drove back into the town square to visit a favorite brewery of ours in San Marcus, Aquabrew. Before doing so we took a walk around the town square as it is always an interesting place. Between the views of the old courthouse and the occasional murals this older Texas city has a lot of charm.
We finished the day with a frosty beverage at the brewery and as always look forward to another day on our Road of Retirement…
NOTE: We are now at Potters Creek CG on Canyon Lake Tx until June 3rd…
