If you are looking to escape the city for a day, head out to Krause Springs in Spicewood, Texas, about 30 miles west of Austin. Founded in 1955 by the Krause Family, this camping and swimming site is a true treasure! With several natural swimming holes and a manmade pool, you will have plenty to explore. There are also areas for tent or RV camping (Autumn did it once – never again) along with butterfly gardens and beautiful flowing waterfalls. Open year round, 9am-9pm, there’s no excuse not to go!
