Hidden Cove Park & Marina-The Colony, Texas

If you’re looking to get away for a bit for not a lot of money, there’s a little gem located in The Colony, Texas on the 29,700 acre Lake Lewisville, called Hidden Cove Park and Marina. Trust me when I tell you that Hidden Cove is in an inviting, bucolic setting with a variety of  native flora and fauna. Even some of the homes near the Cove look inviting!

Once you get to the main gate and pay your park entrance fees, you’re on your way to your campsite, RV site, pavillion or shelter. Locally, we call the shelters “cabins” because they’re sturdy structures, complete with glass windows.

After you pull through the entrance, if you continue forward, you’ll come to the Park, which has a picnic/day use area, restroom, concessions and even a volleyball net for a little sport activity. The Park also has hiking trails, dry storage, fish cleaning shelters, a dump station for your RV, and they even have a conference center within its 470 acre camping area. 

 

 

 

          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hidden Cove also has a new Ship Store with fuel dock, boat pump-out equipment, courtesy slips, plenty of boat ramps to put in and even boat rentals. The slips can hold 20 foot sailboats all the way up to a 72 foot cruiser! You can play all day on the water, then  cruise across the lake to Pier 121 Marina for waterside dining at the Dinghy Bar & Grill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Though Lake Lewisville isn’t the largest in Texas, it’s where many locals go every summer. Hidden Cove Park & Marina is only a small part of the lake, but likely the more peaceful location to take your family. There are also plenty of retail stores in close proximity and restaurants for just about every palate. Oh yeah, did I mention Hidden Cove is animal friendly?

 

I was lucky enough to catch these little guys having a dip close to shore. Fabulous! This is just a really cool little place with lots of room to roam around, let the kids ride their bikes and skateboards and relax with nature. If you check out the park map, you’ll find all the contact information and web address. A word of advice: if you plan on visiting between the months of June and August, bring plenty of high SPF sunscreen! Texas weather can be very dodgy but if you want to work on your tan, this is a good place to do it.  Come check it out y’all!!
