Waterholes in Texas are the perfect way to escape the heat. They're both natural and refreshing - two things that your typical pool may not be. Some of the best waterholes in Texas are hidden and not known by many, but their lack of business makes them all the more exciting to find. Devil's Waterhole in Burnet, Texas is one that certainly falls under this category, and will leave you feeling like your best self.
While the name may sound a tad intimidating, that's the absolute last word to describe this secluded paradise. Devil's Waterhole was given its name because the previous landowner always got his wagon stuck in the rocks and would curse super loudly - his mode of transportation wasn't the most reliable way to get around. The era of wagons is long over and so is the need to ever feel upset at Devil's Waterhole, it is a paradise after all!
Devil's Waterhole is surrounded by rocks from each and every direction, making you feel like you're secluded from the rest of the world. You can do everything from tubing to cliff diving here, depending on how adventurous you're feeling! People also love to bring their kayaks and paddle around all day long. Really, the awesome ways to spend your day here are endless.
To explore Devil's Waterhole is only $6 per entry. Cheap fun is the best fun, after all! They're open daily and close off to the public in the evening, the daily times depending on the day of the week. Pack your bags, grab your (furry) friends and get ready to have the most exciting day of your summer yet.
