Brush up on your river songs before you head to this campground, because you’ll be singing its praises at night by the fire!

The other fifteen sites are ripe for river glamping! Pull up in your rugged ride (up to 30 feet), enjoy all of the same amenities and the rest is history.

Absolutely love this state park and Gorman Falls is truly a gem of the Texas Hill Country. There are several campgrounds to pick from in the state park camping area- I suggest asking for Spot 22 if it's available. It's situated under a huge Cedar tree that provides some much needed shade on warmer days in the park. Plus it has easy access to the Colorado River!

Gorman Falls is a must see when visiting the park! Great trails and this is one of the few parks that is pet friendly!

On a hot summer day, Spicewood Springs are a comfortable and beautiful destination within the park. It's a short walk from the parking lot to the large cool clear spring to splash around in or you can walk upstream through a network of shallow pools and falls.

We stayed in the walk-in sites, close to the river. We got there on a Sunday afternoon about 2:00 and had the pick of the park. We chose site #3 and loved it. Nestled under a tree, with views of the river. We had shade, picnic table, access to water and the compost toilets up the stairs. There are no showers, but there is an outdoor shower closeby. We chose to just do "the essentials" and I washed my hair standing beside the tent. Firewood and ice is sold at the headquarters, cash only, until 5:30. There are a ton of trails, but we only had time for one and that was Gorman Falls. Really pretty at the falls. Definitely recommend this park.

Gorgeous park situated on the river with trails leading to swimming holes and falls. Group site 48 is wonderfully shaded and right on the water... a perfect spot to introduce camping to your baby!

We had an amazing time at Colorado Bend. We camped with another family and the sites were perfect. The kids loved the swimming hole, we hiked a few of the shorter trails and also took the guided hike to Gorman Falls. It was absolutely gorgeous... but was challenging with a two year old in tow. We plan on visiting again in the spring!

No bites this time, but we still had fun! Amazing views! Gorman Falls! We were feeling pretty to attempt this hike with a two year old, but so worth it! The kiddos before one of our (short) hikes.

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.
