Cleburne State Park, TX W/ Pics

Went to Cleburne State Park over the weekend. Had a great time, good weather, relaxing, and nice scenery. I have been to Cleburne State Park a lot over the years, mostly mountain biking, but this is only my second time to ever camp there.

We camped in the Poplar Point area which IMO is the best place to camp (maybe not the most level). It is the only rv camp sites on the water. For those that aren't familiar with this park, it is one of the best campgrounds for an active family to stay at. It has a very good trail system (very very fun for experienced mountain bikers, not for novice riders) that covers a few miles. The lake is very clean, and has some nice fishing holes, and good swimming area. Nice play ground, and roomy camp sites. The only real complaint is the constant humming from the lime plant a mile or so away, but it's not loud, and isn't disturbing (more of a light back round noise).





Used our canoe to get around the lake, do some fishing, and take a short cut to the scenic over look and giant wash.


I am very familiar with the trails and since my wife is preggers, I took us on a short yet good hiking trail.

We've camped this beautiful little lake for 15 years. Easily our favorite, close to home.

Hey! This is where my hubbie and I are going next week! Never been before so it's nice to hear good things. We will also be staying in the Poplar Point section and we're bringing our nucanoe and bikes. Hope we don't get rained in First outing this year and it's been driving me bananas to have to wait so long to get out camping

You'll love it! It's a spring fed lake, very clear and no-wake as well. Excellent paddling.

Can either of you say what the fishing is like? Of course we'll be fishing regardless but thought I'd ask anyway

ps - @DFWRusty, congrats on your upcoming addition to the family and thanks for sharing the pictures

We didn't have any luck, but don't base the fishing quality off my experience. I am horrible at fishing. There were lots of people fishing while we were there, and we found a little hole that was super clear and had lots of fish you could see. They just didn't like our worms...lol

Thanks, we are very excited. We have been trying to have a baby for 2 years now!

Well, it would appear the fishing is not so bad here. Hubba just caught this...

Very enjoyable, the site is spacious and the hookups in very good condition. The bike trails were closed due to recent rains but we were able to enjoy some of the hiking trails. We'll be back for sure
