Day Trip From Helotes – Krause Springs

Krause Springs

Krause Springs is a wonderful Central Texas swimming hole.  Krause Springs has a nice swimming area fed by a creek and 32 springs.  The water eventually flows into Lake Travis.  Even during extreme drought most of the springs flow.  Huge cypress trees line the creek and the pool and ferns grow in sides of the rocky hills that the springs flow out of.

The 115 acre site is owned and operated by the Krause family.  Krause Springs is located in Spicewood about 45 minutes west of Austin.  Take a look at photos of Krause Springs I took in 2008.
