All camp sites offer dedicated parking next to site, picnic table, and fire ring.  Accommodate up to 2 tents & all amenities are within a short walk.  Owned by Sam & Dee Williams, Inez Spring Riverfront Park was originally envisioned and created as a family retreat.  As the park began to take shape, the Williams' realized what a hidden gem it really is.  The natural spring that feeds Joshua's pond was named after Sam's mother, Inez.  The area around Eastland is rich with local history, including Captain Eastland and the black bean, Old Rip the horned toad, The Santa Clause bank robbery, Ringling Brothers' Circus, Bonnie & Clyde, etc.  In addition the area is known to have had a significant prehistoric Native American population.  In fact, Sam and Dee are curators of an impressive collection of artifacts found throughout the area.  The park boasts 15 camp sites and a large number of picnic spots along the riverfront and near Joshua's Pond, for day use.  The Williams Family carved out a trail system that takes hikers along the rim of rock outcrops, between the gaps of huge rock formations, along the banks of the Leon River and through a heavy shaded canopy of red oak, pecan and cedar elm.  There's even a small cave for the adventurous spelunker.  Kayaking is popular on the river and kayaks can be rented on the property.  The affordable entry fee provides a full day of fishing, hiking, swimming, boating, picnicking, bicycling, etc.  There is an additional fee for overnight campsites. Take a refreshing swim in Joshua's Pond, hike the nature trails, or go fishing and boating in the Leon River.  Currently open to campers on Thursday thru Monday nights.

This is a great place....just far enough away from the city....to feel like you're away...but close enough to eat out...or pick up whatever you may need from Wal-Mart. Camping sites have options of either close to camp in s group or some distance for more privacy. The size of the park is big enough to have swiming, "hiking" (walking in rough terrain), fishing, kayaking, grilling and even a kids play area....but small enough that you don't have to drive or walk far to get from one point of interest to another. The location is less than 15 minutes from Lake Leon and feels very secure. I appreciate that i was able to take my dogs and the improvements to the swimming area are nice.

Our stay was great! Very friendly staff and the camp sites were very well maintained, as well as the portapottys. The pool was beautiful. The experience was amazing.

The hosts were kind enough to accommodate me during wet and muddy weather. I'd like to come back one day and see it at its best.

What an incredible place! We were so lucky to find this amazing Hipcamp. There are beautiful trees, a river you can fish, a swimming hole, caves and hiking trails! The hosts are so wonderful and accommodating. There are many picnic tables, campfire chairs, free firewood and even porta potty’s. Note - you can hear the highway traffic from the campsite, but within a half a day our whole family tunned it out. We had the most relaxing time as a family! Next time I plan to rent a kayak from the front office and check out other parts of the property. We’ll be back with friends!

Gorgeous. Beautiful. Peaceful. Serene. These are all ways to describe how this campsite is. Yes there is highway noise pollution, but in a weird way, it adds to the charm. You can’t see the highway, even at night. The hosts are awesome! Restrooms are clean. I never thought I’d say this - I’ve never seen port-a-potties so clean. The swimming spot was refreshing. The hiking was wonderful for all ages and abilities. This is truly a hidden gem. You won’t regret staying here.
