SALMON LAKE PARK
GRAPELAND,TX.



SALMON LAKE PARK AT GRAPELAND TX.FLOYD AND FANNIE SALMON HAVE BUILT A SHOW PLACE IN EAST TEXAS.

------------------------------------------------------------

The first weekend in September is serious "Toe-Tapping" fun at the scenic Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, the host of one of the largest annual bluegrass festivals. Continuous music from well-known musicians will perform day and night. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy music, arts and crafts, food and fellowship. It is a true family affair - no alcohol allowed. The 20-acre Salmon Lake Park is located 1 mile west of Grapeland and 13 miles north of Crockett. Take US 287 Business to Grapeland, go west on FM Rd. 227, and follow the signs to the park. The park is open year round and provides a unique area for camping, recreation, lodging, swimming, family reunions, and RV clubs.

The park features a "Downtown" that has been created from 40 refurbished old buildings and memorabilia that recall life before World War II. Overnight lodging is available in several old buildings refurbished into cabins. Most sleep 4-6 persons and feature kitchenettes. A 2-story, dorm-style "hotel" sleeps 13 and offers a large kitchen dining area. The park offers 400 RV sites and about 50 primitive campsites. The "swimming hole" offers a platform and elevated diving board. A separate fishing pond is offered. For additional information or reservations write to Floyd and Fannie Salmon, Box 483, Grapeland, TX 75844 or call (409) 687-2594.

One of my all time favorite places.
Across the road from where I was born.It was taken by the stinking Belton Lake in 1952.
It was on the Temple,Tx. to Gatesville.Tx. road at the time.This was the road west to Abilene,Tx. from Houston,Tx.and was on the bank of Owl Creek , about 1 mile from where it ran into the Leon River in Bell Co. Tx.
