Krause Springs has been called the most beautiful swimming hole in Texas, and we’re not going to argue. Krause Springs is approximately 30 miles west of Austin and camping is only $12 for adults, $6 for kids, so there’s no reason not to check it out! The property has 32 springs and a spring-fed, man-made pool and has been privately owned by the Krause family for over 50 years. The place looks like a magical wonderland with tall trees whose roots are exposed.
why have I not heard of this?? TEXAS! The Narrows. Upper south side of Lake Travis near the community of Spicewood. From Austin take Texas 71, turn north on Spur 191, and proceed approximately one mile to Spicewood. Continue traveling north 1.1 miles on Burnet County Road 410 to CR 411, which is a gravel road. Proceed approximately 1.5 miles north to the entrance for the Narrows Recreation Area. Woohoo...so going!
