Krause Springs, Texas

For anyone traveling through central Texas, especially near Austin and Lake Travis, Krause Springs is a chance to beat the heat, and relish in the natural beauty texas has to offer. This family owned campsite is absolutely beautiful.

Huge Cypress trees tower over the property, providing shade to the large number of springs scattered across the property, feeding into a beautiful developed swimming area, as well as a magnificent natural pool. Streams of water seem to come from everywhere, trickling down the rocks into the inviting waters of the pools.

As for the campsites, the atmosphere is one of relaxation. RV hookups are available for those wishing more modern accommodations, as well as tenting sites for those who prefer to rough it a little. Any visitor to the springs must be sure and visit the butterfly gardens, a picturesque maze of flowers, fountains, and incredible wind chimes. Plenty of time can be spent wandering the pathways of the garden, marveling at the diverse flora and fauna within.

Krause Springs offers a day entrance fee of six dollars per adult, and four dollars for children under the age of twelve, You can hardly pass up a chance to stop and enjoy the scenery, and take a relaxing swim. Should you desire to stay a while, camping is twelve dollars per adult, and six per child, with RV slots going at a reasonable twelve dollars. Remember to bring your billfold though, credit cards are not accepted at this fine establishment, and only cash will do. http://krausesprings.net/.
