This itty bitty baby 25-acre park (only .04 square miles!) is one of the many happy, younger siblings to neighboring big bro, Pace Bend Park. Less than 30 miles from downtown Austin, this sunny beachside oasis is perfect for a weekend family getaway! Great for swimming, fishing and boating, the park also has short trails for nature walks in the sand and wooded bluffs, where you’ll be swooned by the tunes of the world’s oldest singing stars (were talking way before T Swift here) - songbirds such as the endangered Golden-Cheeked Warbler! Fire up the barbeque and enjoy some D’s & B’s (dogs and burgers) along with some R&R as you watch the sun dip below the horizon on this quiet corner of Lake Travis.
No reservations required at this quaint little lakeside park that’s campsite are all FCFS (first-come, first-served) and where kindling is BYOF...

History of Sandy Creek Park
Sandy Creek Park is located on one of the quieter coves of Lake Travis, in the scenic Hill Country of central Texas. This 25-acre park is an ideal spot for swimming, nature walks, birding, camping, and fishing. Boaters and overnight campers will appreciate the park's easy accessibility to the basin area of Lake Travis, as well as its close proximity to Austin. At the same time this park offers a serene, wooded environment away from the heavier boat traffic found on other sections of the lake. Sandy Creek is home to several rare bird and plant species, including the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler. A hike along the wooded bluff and shoreline provides a good view of the lake.
