JULY 22, 2015 HAMM CREEK PARK CLEAN UP
There has been a tremendous amount of clean up work and much is still in progress. Due to the length of time a major portion of the Park was under water, heavy equipment has not been used in order to prevent further damage to camp grounds and allow crumbling pavement to dry out. As the flood waters have gone down, there has been no shortage of broken trees, trash, glass, sharp objects, snakes -- and even a refrigerator full of frogs! Issues such as water leaks, restroom and electrical problems are being addressed along with projects pictured below.

WATER SAFETY: NO WAKE ZONE:
A "No Wake" zone is in effect to reduce the potential for injury and provide a safer environment for all to enjoy the River.
Hamm Creek Park is located approximately 8 miles west of Rio Vista, Texas. The Park is the only public access to the beautiful Brazos River in Johnson County. Situated below high wooded hills, this wilderness environment is home to fox, deer, turkey, armadillo, various species of birds, and fish such as bass and crappie.
Limestone bluffs on one side of the river form a natural windbreak for river skiing. Fishing is great, from the bank of the river or in a boat. Although the water levels are ever changing, our new boat ramp provides a little more opportunity for launching.
With picnic shelters, primitive and RV camp sites, playgrounds, clean restrooms and other amenities, Hamm Creek Park is a great place to enjoy the outdoors.
