Just got back from my first trip for the year. Went to Double Lake Recreation Area in Coldsprings, Tx. We used to go there for the day but never camped there. The last time I was there the lake was dry but this time the lake was full and pretty. They had catfish in the lake but no bass according to the camp host.
Wife got sick and had a doctors apt Wednesday in Houston so I made it an overnighter so that I could take her downtown. A one nighter is better than a no-nighter.
Other than the managers and camp host, there was only one other camper in the entire park...talk about peace and quiet.
It was strange because the only wildlife I saw was 5 deer....not one squirrel or raccoon. At Brazos Bend State Park, where I normally go, there are literally hundreds of squirrels running around plus herds of deer and gators.
The park is heavily wooded which was nice. Campsites not on top of one another. On one side of the loop the campsites were pretty level but on the other side there were some that were built on a slope. I would hate to have to level on one of those. The campsites were all paved and in good condition.
Lots of bike and hiking trails. The wind was blowing Tuesday morning and cool but just right for me. Rode the bike quite a bit and did some reading...other than that just sat around and enjoyed the peace.
Here are a few pics....nothing special but thought some of you that haven't had a chance to go yet might like to see some.
