191 west on FM 306, approximately 17 miles. Turn left on Jacobs
Creek Road; go one mile to park entrance. There is a nominal
fee for entrance to the park. Once you are insidek, look for
the tanbark sail on my little dinghy (pic below) we will try
to be at a picnic table near the water.
will be available to answer your questions so don't be shy.
He is a very interesting fellow with a persective that only
living on the far side of the planet can produce. He is glib
and astute with a broad knowledge of small boats. If you are
from Texas, his accent alone is worth the price of admission.
There is a ramp if you want to bring a boat. There
are also picnik tables if you want to bring your family for
a day at the lake. There are no plans to feed anyone, so bring
a sack lunch or otherwise be ready to take care of yourself
See you there!
