DO NOT bring fireworks or your guns to the lake property/shoreline or parks.
This includes all 80+ miles of shoreline and all the parks, land and water we manage from upstream on the Guadalupe River near Rebecca Creek Road to down stream below the dam near the community center on South Access Road.
