Kerrville-Schreiner Park, June 2015

We spent June 25 to June 29 (Thursday - Monday) at Kerrville-Schreiner Park. This was our second visit to the park, the first occurring less than 2 months before (see Kerrville-Schreiner Park). On our previous trip, we spent most of the time in our trailer because of the heavy rains that this area of Texas was receiving at the time. On this trip, the skies were clear for the most part, although we did get a nice rain one afternoon.

On our last trip, only a handful of campers were in the park. This time, the campground was almost full. People come to this park to play. Once each day began to warm, loads of park visitors would load their water flotation devices (inner tubes, inflatable rafts, etc.) and head to the river. If you don't own you own floats, you can rent them in the park. Later in the day, guests would return to their campsites, hang out their wet clothing, and spend the evening hours grilling, eating, and enjoying the park.

Our camping area, Deer Field Loop, looking east. All of these sites would be occupied by the end of the day except for one.

Deer Field Loop looking west from our campsite. All of these sites would fill up.

At Lost Maples, we had only seen a single deer in the park, but at Kerrville-Schreiner, we had deer visitors to our campsite every day. Usually the deer would make at least 2 passes through our site, once in the morning and then later in the day. They would graze about 25 or 30 feet from us, but they kept wary eyes on us. Sounds and sudden movements would startle them, but as long as they weren't threatened, they would usually stay close.

Our daily visitors. The picnic table in foreground was under our awning, just outside our door, so you can see how close they would approach.

I zoomed in for this photo of our little friends.

We stayed in site 123, which offered good shade.
While staying at the park, we visited a couple of local places, which I'll review soon. Additionally, we spent a rainy afternoon watching a movie, Jurassic World. We saw the 3-D version. I won't review the movie other than to say, while entertaining, it was not as enjoyable to me as the other 3 Jurassic movies.
