Eisenhower State Park, Lake Texoma

We decided to take the trailer and go visit a few Texas  state parks.  This park is very pretty and very well maintained. We are finding however that Texas state parks are NOT cheap to stay at.  If you have electricity and water it is $20 a night plus a $5 entrance fee per person.  It is just as cheap to stay at a commercial RV park.  New Mexico and Colorado are much cheaper, I think about $14 a night (but no electric or water hookups).  And we get a bigger discount with our National parks card.  With the Texas card we get one half off the entry, nothing off the camping.  The national parks card gets you one half off the camping fees!  Texas, take note!!

OK, enough complaining about that. As I said, Eisenhower State Park is very pretty and very well maintained.  Great camping spots – some with all utilities and some for just tenting. There is not very close access to the lake.

One of the swimming beaches.  The hike down was pretty steep.

 

 

 

 

I think the view is really pretty but the water seems low to us.  We were told it was only about three feet low.DSC_0023DSC_0024DSC_0025DSC_0026DSC_0027DSC_0028DSC_0029Some black ducks or cormorants I think.  I did not change the zoom or walk any closer.DSC_0031DSC_0032DSC_0033We got back to camp and found the workers taking down some dead trees and cutting them up.

One more thing.  Ticks.  We have been here 24 hours and I have found so many ticks, in and out of the trailer.  First stop tomorrow is for flea and tick stuff for the dog and see what we can do to prevent them from getting to us.

The bluebonnets are blooming like crazy.  This area is right by the dam. These are straight out of the camera.
