If you live in Texas and like to fish, swim, boat, or just relax in beautiful surroundings near the water, I highly recommend a trip to Oak Thicket Park at Fayette Lake. Sherry and I spent the weekend there, and it is a gorgeous park. We stayed in one of the efficiency cabins, but they also have larger two-bedroom units, and one bunkhouse, for larger gatherings. Screened shelters, RV spaces, and tent camping are also available, all of which are wonderfully shaded.
The park is quiet and family oriented, and we got just what we were looking for—lots of peaceful relaxation. This scene is the one we walked up on when we first arrived at the cabin. We said, “Wow!”
In fact, it was where we spent a large portion of our time.
There was a bit of excitement the first evening, when we encountered the infamous Fayette Creature. Thankfully, it caught a gentle wave and drifted off into the deep water. Scary moments, for sure!
These two waded by a few minutes later, seining for minnows. I hollered a warning to them about the creature, but they just laughed and went on about their business. I hope they’re okay!
I’ve got more pictures, and more “wows”, and plan to share them with you in the coming days! We really enjoyed our weekend, and hope you had a great one, too!
