Quiet Getaway

Within easy driving distance of both Austin and San Antonio you’ll find a quiet getaway: Lockhart State Park. Come for a morning of golf, an after­noon swim, an evening hike, or an overnight campout. See you soon!

Things to Do

Spend a relaxing night camping under the stars. Tee off on our historic golf course. Look for geocaches and wildlife while exploring our trails. Try your luck fishing in Clear Fork Creek year-round, and swim in our pool in summer (closed until 2021). Pick up a souvenir at our park store.

Admire the waterfall as you drive Park Road 10. Continue to the top of the hill and take in the view from the terrace of the historic group recreation hall. (You can reserve that hall for your next meeting or reunion!)


Play golf at the nine-hole golf course built by the Works Progress Ad­mini­stration and the Civilian Conservation Corps over 80 years ago. Green fees are $9 on weekdays and $11 on weekends and holidays. Bring your own equipment, or rent from us:


Walk or bike our trails to see the wild side of the park. Stroll the easy Clear Fork Trail for views of the creek, plants, wild­life, and check dams built by the CCC to create fishing holes. Or hike the short but challenging Persimmon Trail.


Anglers catch sunfish, catfish and bass in Clear Fork Creek. We loan fishing gear for use in the park. You do not need a fishing license to fish here.


Reserve a campsite with water and electricity or full hookups.
