According to the Texas State Parks video about Bonham State Park, it's one of the smallest parks in Texas. In fact, there are only 14 RV spots! Nevertheless, it's a comfy little place for fishing, swimming, hiking and biking. Paddle boats and canoes can be rented too.

We took a morning walk on Sunday.

over to part of the RV area.
We were parked next to trees on the farthest end.
You can see our front wheels just above the
gray and yellow tent and just past the white pickup.
From the pavilion, the left side of
the lake and a volleyball area.
Can you see the two chairs on the point?
People are fishing in that spot.

As you can probably tell, the beach is
near the pavilion too. The ducks were
keeping it warm until swimmers arrive.
In the distance, at the far end of the
lake is a wooden one-lane bridge.

We really loved this quaint park!
Amidst all those trees around the lake is a road. George and I biked around it and it was fun, except for the part where we couldn't make it up a hill so we had to walk our bikes up but it didn't take long. The park is so small that the entire ride around it took less than 20 minutes. I think Geo said it was about a mile and a half--something like that.
The night before, George explored one of the trails on his bike. He said the trail was quite wooded and he cleared out every cobweb in the process! One cobweb was stretched across the bike path with a GIANT SPIDER in the middle! YIKES! He threw his arm up and kept truckin' along. That experience is the reason we decided to ride on the road. Fall would be awesome though and we will check it out then.
Sunday was Father's Day, and Josh and Sheri came out for the day. Michael had to work so Michael, Crystal and the boys didn't make it. We chowed down and had a nice visit. Unfortunately, we forgot to get pics.
On Monday morning, we planned to bike around the lake some more before heading home but it was pouring rain. All in all, it was a very nice spur-of-the-moment trip and we will go back.
Happy Trails and Smiles to you!
