T E X A S S T A T E P A R K S Colorado Bend S TAT E PA R K H I L L C O U N T RY Colorado Bend STATE PARK Hidden away in the Hill Country along the Colorado River are over 5,300 acres of caves and canyonlands. Spring-fed streams flow through deep-cut canyons forming lush waterfalls and unique ecosystems. Vital minerals are dissolved by groundwater and emerge to build fantastic formations such as Gorman Falls, a 70-foot living waterfall. Box canyons, rugged rock outcrops, and hilltop overlooks dot the landscape. Cave and waterfall tours provide visitors with an experience to remember. Visitors can also enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, paddling and swimming. In the spring, the white bass run attracts anglers and birding is excellent all year long. Camping: Tent camping in the main campground with drinking water and composting toilets and backcountry access. Picnicking: Tables and charcoal grills in main camping area. Swimming: At your own risk in Colorado River and Spicewood Springs. Boating: Paddling along Colorado River. Kayak rental. Boat ramp access to Lake Buchanan (water level permitting). Fishing: Excellent fishing for white bass in spring. Other possible catches include striped bass, crappie and catfish. Birdwatching: Rare Golden–cheeked Warblers, Black–capped Vireos and Bald Eagles recorded here. Tours: Wild cave tours guide visitors through caves; waterfall tours explore Gorman Falls.
