Which State Park is This?

This river flowed reliably even during the recent drought. It joins with the North Llano River in Junction a few miles north and forms the Llano River. This is one of our great treasures, but not as crowded as rivers closer to the I-35 urban areas. There are several outfitters in town who will rent kayaks and put you in and take you out of the river. The park, which you have guessed by now, is none other than the South Llano River State Park, just south of Junction. Because of a state employee hiring freeze recently announced by the governor, Texas State Parks find themselves short of staff coming into the busy spring and summer seasons; if you like volunteer work, call your local park for opportunities.
