Yegua Creek COE, TX

 yegua01

Yegua Creek Park is one of two neighboring COE parks on Lake Somerville, the other being Rocky Creek. Yegua Creek offers 82 campsites, while Rocky Creek has 203. We tend to prefer smaller parks - that's why we chose Yegua Creek. Both parks are located on FM Road 1948, off Rt 36 south of Somerville.
