55Wow! I can't believe this was only 20 minutes from us. We didn't see or hear any people or dogs at all, it isn't fully fenced but the visibility of most of the neighbors is really obscured. We did see people kayaking on the river, but I think that's to be expected with any property on a large lake or river. We'll definitely be coming back. The host was also nice enough to let us bring out cat (leashed) so that was really cool, and he enjoyed it as well.
55Nice private spot with plenty of space for the pups to run around. It has a small area by the river to cool off if your dog likes to swim. Lots of seating with shade for the humans. I would wear some pants as some of the grassy areas can get a little high, but you can avoid the areas if you need. The water access was a little tough for my small older dog (not a complaint, just a heads up for other small/old dogs!) Really loved the spot and all the decorations! Would definitely return!
55Favorite place to visit!
55Think we found one of our new favorite spots! Such a beautiful and unique property. My pup thought so too! Plenty of smells, toys and room! Will most definitely be coming back.
55Great place! My dog jumped right in water when he got there. Will definitely come back.
55Perfect spot for an after-work romp with my pups! Property was as described and I appreciated the extra touches - the property map, poop bags, water for the dogs and humans, so much seating, and access to the river. Will definitely be back. Thank you so much for hosting.
25The owner has maps, seating and water for the dogs. We really wanted to love it and enjoy it. Unfortunately, we only lasted 10 mins because both of my dogs ran thru a large fire ant bed and one of them is covered in bites. I had to run him home and give him Benadryl.
55The most lovely place to spend a morning! Truly a little oasis in east Austin - my dogs and I enjoyed running around the property and lake edge. What a truly gorgeous view. It was well stocked with water and poop bags and plenty of seating. I loved the unique decorations. The area is pretty secluded by fencing as well as natural barriers and we really enjoyed the solitude. 12/10 and will be back.
55Always have such a blast! My pups love it here :)
55Awesome experience

Sit in the egg chairs or hammock in the trees or enjoy the ample yard art everywhere and there is seating everywhere! We are always looking to make this experience the best it can be and your next fav spot to bring furry friend. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
