When it comes to Texas in the summer, finding a place to cool off is an absolute necessity. We’re all desperate to escape the heat, and at times, that feels near impossible. But look no further! With a lazy river, slide, beach area and cocktail service, the pool at Rough Creek Resort and Lodge is an oasis in the middle of the desert, a cold glass of water on a sunny day, and a beacon of shining hope for those from near and far. Here are ten reasons Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is the best possible place to cool off in the Texas summer heat.
Float Down the Lazy River
In their desperation to soothe the heat, floating the river is an attraction that draws in thousands of Texas residents every summer. Now, you can do it here…. Minus all the work, muck and dirt, of course. You can soak up the sun as the gentle current carries you through the tunnel and around the bend in the clean, crystal clear water. Glamourous river floating? Oh yes, it’s the next big thing.
Get Lost Chasing Waterfalls
Rough Creek Lodge and Resort just got even more refreshing. With several waterfalls adorning the family pool area, you’ll feel like you’re in a tropical paradise. With steps going up the middle of it, and water cascading down on both sides, it makes for a pretty photo worthy day by the pool, too. It practically beckons you from every corner of the property. If you listen closely, you can hear it now.
Slide into Summer with The Water Slide
Here at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, we only offer the best of the best, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the pool slide is epic. The rushing water and drop off into the deep end of the pool makes for fun in the sun all day long. When summer camp meets Atlantis, this is what you get. And it really is the best of both worlds.
Grab an Innertube For Everyone
Though you don’t need them to experience the great joys of the lazy river or the slide, our family pool comes fully stocked with innertubes. Providing the perfect sun to water ratio, the tubes keep you cool while you work on your tan at the same time. With nowhere to go and nothing to do but relax and soak it all in, this makes for the perfect summer vacation activity.
The Poolside Bar is Fully Stocked and Ready to Serve
What could make Rough Creek Lodge and Resort any better? The poolside snack shack and bar… and it doesn’t disappoint. The full-service bar is the pinnacle of relaxation at the family pool, and you don’t even have to get up to get another. Our poolside waitstaff is at your beck and call, serving up plenty of fun in the sun. Not in the mood for a poolside cocktail? What about a fresh, crisp Caesar salad? If you ask us, there’s no better time to enjoy a mid-day refresh than while you’re laying by the pool. Our lunch menu has plenty of options and is sure to kick your poolside cravings.
The Beach Area Brings Makes California a Lot Closer Than You Think
Okay, so, your drink is refreshed and now you’re ready for a nap…. The lounge chairs that fill the beach area are naptime central. Station yourself underneath the umbrellas or in plain sight of the sun while you kick back, relax, and get some much-needed rest after a long hard day’s work… or a short easy day’s vacation. It’s all up to you!
The Hot Tub is the Pinnacle of Relaxation
Between axe throwing, rock wall climbing, horseback riding, clay pigeon shooting, and all the other stellar activities that Rough Creek Lodge and Resort has to offer, maybe you really do deserve some rest. Lucky for our guests, our hot tub is the perfect place to soothe a sore muscle or two. And if you don’t want to go in the heat of the day, you can always come early in the morning or after the sun goes down. Here at Rough Creek, we believe it’s never too early or too late for some much-deserved self-care.
No One Is Left Behind with the Kiddie Pool
Bringing the kids with you on vacation? No problems there. If you decide to opt out of the many fabulous child care options offered at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, you can bring them with you! The family pool has a shallow, kid-friendly pool neighboring it, so guests can soak up the summer sun no matter their age.
Cool Off in a Shaded Cabana
If what summer vacation means to you is a good book, a cold beer, and a poolside cabana, you’ve come to the right place. With shaded wooden cabanas that line the poolside, you can enjoy the views of Texas’ tropical oasis from the comfort of your own table and chairs.
Escape to the Adults Only Pool
Looking for something with even less going on? The adults-only pool is located just around the corner from the family pool and boasts of constant peace and serenity. Mom and dad, you can enjoy the lakeside views and rest assured that your children are probably off having fun too. It’s a win, win situation!
