Park (P)review: Lake Somervile State Park, Nails Creek Unit - Ledbetter, TX
We haven't camped here yet, but I've driven around and checked it out!
*Lake Somerville is a 2 unit park - Nails Creek is south-western, Birch Creek is north-western. The two parks are connected by 14 miles of equestrian and hiking trails. It's about a 20-30 minute drive between them on back country roads.
**Impressed with the size of most sites - they are set up nicely with holding pens for horses in some areas
*Dappled shade, beat up roads, scrubby looking brush around the area, cactus - this park has great character!
*They've recently renovated the facilities by the tent camping area
*You'll find recycling for plastic and aluminum cans near each dumpster.
*Water and Electric Sites:
Cedar Creek: Sites 44, 48, and 50 are HUGE and well shaded with great views of the lake. Sites 44 &46 would make for a good group area
