Dog Friendly Texas Hill Country: Black Rock Park

Share with fellow dog lovers!

Our latest day trip involved a visit to the Highland Lakes, the chain of lakes that snakes through the Texas Hill Country to Austin. The first lake in the stair-step chain is Lake Buchanan, the largest lake in the chain (and in the entire area).

We’d just left Inks Lake State Park earlier in the day where Irie and Tiki loved swimming and hiking along the lakeshore. At the park, we’d looked at the cabins…but they can’t be rented by travelers with pets. That leaves two options: tent camping and RV/trailer camping. We’d love to camp in an RV with our dogs…but our budget dictates a cabin rental…so we kept looking…

At Lake Buchanan, though, we found these affordable cabin rentals that welcome pets! Five of the lakeview cabins at the Lower Colorado River Authority’s (LCRA) Black Rock Park welcome dog travelers! Cabins rent for $45 a night. Lake Buchanan, we’ll be back!!
