Outdoors and Things To Do

ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS!  Camp Joy offers guests two docks available to use for fishing, lounging, getting in and out of kayaks on the property.  The one shown was built as handicap accessible.  This small lake is one of three lakes in the area called "Cade Lakes".  Great for catching crappie, bass and catfish. Kids enjoy watching the turtles push each other off the logs seen around the banks.   If you love to fish, the greatest fishing lake in Texas is a few miles away near Somerville, TX called "Lake Somerville".  It's a scenic drive to the Overlook Marina and Lake Somerville Dam.  Several State Parks surround Lake Somerville, the closest from this location is "Birch Creek State Park" with beautiful hiking trails.  Highly recommend the drive to check the Parks out.  Also recommend visiting "Washington on the Brazos", the birthplace of Texas and is where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed.  It is also a State Park.  The "Aggieland Wild Animal Safari" is outside of Bryan College Station and is a great place to take the kids to interact with all kinds of animals.  Offers a drive-thru in which you can drive thru as many times as you want, as well as a petting zoo and gift shop.  And, if you like shopping, there are lots of antique shops and wineries at Round Top, another scenic drive about 45 minutes away. And all the ice cream lovers must visit the home of "Blue Bell" in Brenham, TX which is only open to the public during the weekdays, not weekends. While in Brenham, kids love to skate at the historic "Silver Wings Ballroom", known as one of the best skating rinks in Texas!  Check for local events happening all around "Burleson County" such as the "Texas Overland Festival", "Santa's Wonderland", "Round Top Antique Fair", "Aggie Football Games", "Snook Chilifest Music Festival", "Farmers Market" every Saturday on the Square in Caldwell and much, much more!
