Drop some Colorado Bend State Park Campground knowledge on us.
Camp here during the week. Weekends get very crowded. Beautiful campgrounds right on the river.
One of my favorite TX state parks! We camped down by the river, and the sites are roomy. There is a picnic table by each site so you don’t have to carry your camping tables down to the walk-in sites. You park up top by the toilets and walk down to the river sites. There are other walk-in sites that require more of a trek as well as regular campsites. Always full when we visit regardless the season. Fun drive into the park, too! If you have to arrive after 10pm, just call and get the gate code.
We camped Wind Mill, where the backpack hike in was about 1.25 miles. The terrain hiking in was smooth in some spots and rocky in others. An easy hike in unless you carry a wagon for extra stuff or you have small kids. We saw parents having to carry their wee ones into camp as they arrived. The campsites were spacious and you have privacy. The required burn had just been performed 2 weeks prior, so alot of the ground had been charred over. No water or toilets, so be careful where you squat. The skies were dark, so we saw lots of stars. We had a good time overall.
Deer will walk right through camp grounds. Critters at night can be loud. Definitely make the hike to Gorman Falls. Steep climb down and back up, but worth it!
Lots of little waterfalls all through this state park and the campsites have some trail heads right next to them. Great facilities. Some campsites had covered areas and others didn't so it's something to look out for.
Beautiful waterfalls and hiking, but the best camping is outside of the park, along the river
Make sure to have plenty of bug spray!
Colorado Bend is quite possibly one of the most unique and spectacular State Parks in all of Texas. I was shocked when I heard we had waterfalls here! The trail to Gorman Falls is somewhat tough at the end, so be prepared (we went and got rained on, made the end extra tough). Completely worth it, we did the hike twice with camera gear to get photos. I cannot recommend this park enough! Go after a good rain to see the falls really flowing.
No water/electric hookups.
