ARE YOU OPEN YEAR ROUND?
We are temporarily closed during the winter - usually between December 1st and February 15th - for property improvements and much needed rest.
We never close due to drought like other nearby natural pools.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?
During the busy months, our office and gates open at 9am and close promptly at 9pm. Anyone who might arrive after 9pm will not be allowed to enter our property. This is for the safety of our guests staying overnight. If you call our office and no one answers, please leave a message or contact us through our Facebook page. During less busy times of the year, our office hours are 9am – 8pm.
HOW ARE YOUR WATER LEVELS?
The Springs that feed our pools flow constantly, year round at around 68°, even during times of extreme drought. After heavy rains, our pools and property drain very efficiently into Lake Travis. Both our manmade and natural pools have some of the cleanest natural Texas spring water flowing through it non-stop, so the water never becomes stagnant, and is swimmable year-round.
WHAT SHOULD WE BRING WITH US?
We only have a few rules which include No Glass Bottles, No Loud Music & No Pets. We recommend bringing:
- Cash for admission
- Refreshments (non-glass containers)
- Water shoes or slip-proof shoes. (the ground and rocks get slick!)
- Floats or Intertubes (we have an air pump onsite)
- Camera (we love seeing your photos)
Please help us keep Krause Springs beautiful by discarding any trash in our barrels located throughout the property or by taking it with you when you leave.
ARE PETS ALLOWED AT THE SPRINGS?
We love our pets just as much as you do, but please keep them at home.
DO YOU HAVE REGULAR BATHROOM FACILITIES WITH SHOWERS?
Yes, we have bathroom facilities with sinks, stalls and showers. All showers use fresh spring water and are not heated.
ARE FIRES ALLOWED FOR COOKING?
We have BBQ pits (in the day use area) and burn barrels for camper use. You may bring your own BBQ pit as long as it does not sit on the ground. You can bring your own firewood or purchase a bundle from our office.
DO YOU RENT TUBES? CAN WE BRING KAYAKS AND/OR BIKES?
No, we do not rent tubes. We recommend bringing your own tube or other floatation device. We have an air pump you can use to inflate your float.
You can bring small kayaks (SMALLER THAN 5 FEET) for the lower natural pool, it may be hard to maneuver larger ones during busy summer weekends. You can also bring a bike, but we do not have any formal bike trails nor paved roads on our property.
CAN WE FISH?
You can fish on the lower parts of our property where the springs drain into Little Cypress Creek, which drains into Lake Travis. No fishing in the pools.
