Sunday – December 16, 2012
We departed the Walmart in Austin, Texas at 8:30 a.m. under a very light rain and arrived at Potters Creek Park Campground in Canyon Lake, Texas at 9:30 a.m. This is a C.O.E campground that provides electric and water hookups at each campsite. The campground provides flush toilets and hot showers that are clean and well maintained.
We were fortunate to secure campsite #50 that had just been vacated by a motorhome as we were approaching this site. This is a very nice site located about 50 yards from the lake shoreline with an unobstructed view of the lake.
There are 109 single RV campsites, some have shade and some do not have any shade. Rates are $24.00 per night. Golden Age and Golden Access Passport holders receive a 50 percent discount.
Potters Creek Park Campground is situated on the northern shore of Canyon Lake in the rolling hill country of South Central Texas. The lake and Guadalupe River provide great opportunities for boating, fishing and swimming. Both the lake and the river are stocked with bass, catfish and trout.
The park is settled among wooded, gently sloping terrain. Native oak and juniper surround the upper campsites; sites closer to the waterfront are full sun. Grassy fields of native hill country plants and wildflowers dot the landscape. Rocky outcroppings are scattered throughout the park.
Canyon Lake is near many sites of interest including Natural Bridge Caverns and the historic town of Gruene in New Braunfels.
The temperature was in the low 70’s today with an overcast sky, so we enjoyed a leisurely break relaxing in the comfort of our lawn chairs enjoying the warmth of the day.
Camping Fee: $12.00 per night with our Golden Age Passport.
Total miles traveled today: 44
Tomorrow a new adventure awaits us as we explore our new surroundings.
