Starting from the trailhead at the South Prong Camping Area, this is a flat, easy backpacking trip of just over a mile. The campsites are not private, with a communal, circular pad in the center and sites situated around the perimeter. Kind of a bummer, but there's a good chance there will be no one else there since this park isn't as heavily used as those in central TX. There's no shade, but there is a primitive toilet.
